Christmas day is just a few days away. I can now see people rushing to shopping malls to buy their Christmas presents for family and co-workers. There are also parties being held everywhere. It’s indeed a countrywide festivity whereas millions of people around the world are celebrating. And exchanging christmas greetings and Christmas gifts is something that will always be a part of the celebration.
Are you short on funds and fears the upcoming Christmas holiday season? Don’t fret! Gift giving isn’t supposed to be something daunting. There are a lot of gift choices out there that doesn’t cost much, but aren’t considered as cheap items either. Here are a few ideas you can consider:
You don’t need to place expensive food treats in a food basket to make it a proper gift. You can place several food pieces in the christmas hamper that are inexpensive like trail mixes, fruits, cheese, bread, jam, or baked goods. They don’t have to be branded. If you select quality food products, that’s good enough. You can go the extra effort by placing baked goods you made yourself! This food basket is very affordable because you’re in control of which products to buy. Decorate the basket to make it look elegant like tying a ribbon or putting Christmas ornaments you have lying around. You can get more christmas hamper ideas from internet

Small and Cute Clocks
You can never go wrong with gifting a clock. Clocks are always useful to everyone and are incredibly affordable. Just make sure you buy one that looks sturdy and you think fits the taste of the recipient. For example, if the recipient is a teenage girl, give her a cute clock with a vibrant design. If an old man, give a clock that has a timeless look. You have a lot of options for clocks as well. There are automatic clocks, manually wound clocks, digital, analog etcetera.
Mugs seem like the universal gift for any occasion because it’s useful and inexpensive as well. Differentiate your usual gift by designing the mug in a fashionable way. You can design it with glitter glues or permanent markers. You can even have it printed from a professional printer. This service is cheap so you do not have to worry about the cost. You can have them print your photo on it or a graphic design you made, so that every time they drink from it, they’re sure to remember you. Make sure that you will attach a note with your Christmas greetings to them.
Bath soaps and salts
Toiletries are often inexpensive, even the ones that do look pricey. Gift your loved ones with beautiful bath sets that they can enjoy and appreciate. Not only will the gift look beautiful, but they will be able to use it as well. You can also attach a Christmas card with a note of wishes for your recipient. This will make your gift extra special.
This may seem a cheap christmas gift idea but when you bundle a bunch of chocolates together with a pretty ribbon, it will seem classy. And who doesn’t love to treat their sweet tooth every now and then? This is a very affordable gift that you can find anywhere. You can personalize it by buying chocolates/candies you know your recipient loves and then tie them up together with a ribbon in the color that they love.
A universal gift that never gets old is the trusty old address book. These come in various sizes and colors and are most definitely inexpensive. Find one that will suit the tastes of the recipient and place it inside a decorated box to make it look presentable. If you want to add more to the gift, you can also buy a beautiful pen to match the address book.
There are many affordable gifts out there you can choose from. Just be patient in browsing stores and in exploring your imagination. After all, it’s not about the price tag attached to the gifts but the thought that comes along with it that matters. You can also make your own homemade christmas card to attach to your gift and write your heartfelt wishes along with it.
