Cheap Gift Ideas

Nov 3, 2007
Anyone looking for great gift ideas on a budget should never worry that an inexpensive gift will not be unique or personal enough to be a great gift. There is no reason that an inexpensive gift won't be as good as the more expensive variety. There are many different cheap gift ideas, some for under $10, that are sure to be well received.

The personality of the one receiving the gift should be the first consideration when buying a gift. For the person with a strong practical streak, who doesn't have much use for purely decorative items, there are many cheap gift ideas that will be useful. Take a look around at the smaller items that get a lot of use- these items may not get noticed much, but they will be well received by a practical person. Everyone has a kitchen, and anyone who loves useful items will appreciate kitchen items such as paper towel holders and salt and pepper shaker sets. And these days, most people have a home office in need of desk items, such as pens, pen cups or a computer mouse.

If your person isn't practical, and in fact loves impractical things, be sure to get something fun. There are lots of choices for decorative, fun items that will fit into a small gift budget. Many people enjoy figurines, and they don't have to be expensive to be beautiful and tasteful. The impractical may also enjoy art for the walls, attractive throw pillows, or a cute oil warmer. There are so many things to choose from that choosing from among the many impractical gifts ideas can be lots of fun.

Sometimes the gift needs to be one with mass appeal. This may be true if the gift will be going to a few people to share, or if the recipient is a person you don't know much about. One universal gift is the scented candle, which most people can make use of either for burning or for home décor. There are many other cheap gift ideas with broad appeal, such as throw blankets and picture frames or albums.

If there is no occasion to send a gift, cheap gifts are perfect. Instead of sending one expensive gift once in a great while, lots of inexpensive ones can be sent. And the inexpensive ones are every bit as thoughtful as the pricier ones. Coming up with cheap gift ideas doesn't have to be hard- as long as you keep the intended recipient in mind there will be a perfect gift out there just waiting to be given.

The word cheap only describes the cost of the item. It doesn't describe the quality. Many items that can be enjoyed for years can be purchased for under $10 and in some cases even less. Adding to a person's elephant collection or enhancing a loved one's living space with a lantern are just a couple of ways you can give the perfect gift without spending a lot of money.
