    How to buy the perfect gift but being on a budget?

    If it's really important then you could budget for it.  Other options include making a gift or going in with some other people to buy it.

    The perfect gift is something that someone actually wants or needs. Go on a shopping trip with the person and see what stuff they point out to you. Surely some of it will be within your budget.

    There are many low budget items that people want but are unwilling to purchase for themselves. Thus making them the perfect gifts.

    It's the thought that counts, not the cost. If a gift has been carefully chosen with me in mind and then beautifully wrapped it's always well-received by me.

    Many people, especially the elderly,  appreciate home-cooked treats - pickles, preserves, cookies, cakes etc. You could buy a cheap wicker basket and make up a selection. If you can't cook, choose speciality items from a budget price supermarket - a selection of cheeses, biscuits, a miniature bottle of wine or champagne, and a few chocolates.
