best budget christmas presents

Updated on December 22, 2013

Great List of Budget Gifts

Normally I don't care about the price for a present, if it is for "a beloved person", and if I know, this person can "use" the present very well.

But there are situations in life, you "can't choose" the gift you want to give, like temporary financial troubles, or, to many people to be gifted.

Once in my lifetime I was in such a terrible bad financial situation, even 1$ for a present was "to much". But I did managed to spend just about 25$ to find presents for 8 people in my family. I was "embarrased", but also "proud" and "happy", I found "useful" gifts for a "budget price" without losing my face. The presents didn't even look cheap.

But "giving presents" isn't always about the "price"; it is all about giving something to the gifted person, what is liked, or wanted, or wished. And there is a huge list of "budget gifts" on the market. I just selected a few ones, to recommend them on this lens, "budget presents", I ever gifted to someone I cared about in my life.


*The main reason could be, you are in a situation of "low cash flow"; you don't have money enough to spend for gifts, but you have to find gifts anyway.

*You need to find "too many gifts" at a time, or for "one occasion"; it can happen, you have too many people you have to buy a gift for.

*Another reason can also be you just "don't know" what to buy; you don't know the person very well; so you make the decision just to buy something "cheaper", like a gadget for example.

But it isn't always "easy" to find "gifts on a budget". So this lens can help you, or at least inspire you. Finally, you will always find a good solution, just surfing the internet to find "budget gifts" for any occasion. And ALWAYS think about ONE THING, when you are looking for a gift, even for a "low budget" gift: FOCUS ON THE PERSON FOR WHOM YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. It will always inspire you, even to find a "budget" gift.

Just a few examples of a "budget gift" less then 10$.

Be Creative

What is the "secret" behind "giving a GREAT gift"? What is the most important thing when you give some present to someone? For sure: it isn't just the price of the gift that makes the gift "successful".

If you have limited funds to spend on a gift, just become CREATIVE.

*Think of the person, you want to buy a gift for, and find just something, the person would would be happy for. When you think, the gifted person will be enjoying the gift, the gift will be a hit, EVEN if it is a (very) low budget gift.

*After that, just surf the internet, walk through stores, and after focusing on the person for whom you're buying. And YES, you will find the "perfect gift", EVEN on a low budget price.

My example: I had to buy some Christmas gift for a friend; knowing he is a "smoker", finally I bought him a nice "glass ashtray", with the looks of a real cristal looks. The price was 0,30 euro; so I bought "two".

A lesson to learn?

Having some "problems", there is always a solution, if you handle and treat the problems as "challenges".

It is known, people always find through challenges the best solutions.

There is always growing something "new", during way out of crisises, during solving challenges.
