Perfect Low Budget Gift Ideas For The Lady In Your Life
Whether it’s your mum, gran, best friend or girlfriend, finding the right gift can be difficult, especially if you’re on a low budget and you want the gift to come from the heart. Here are 5 gift Ideas for everyone that won’t break the bank.
For the person who is mindful
A year of mindfulness comes in a cute little jar with 52 mindful challenges. The idea is you open one a week and strive to live by its message. You can find it here. Or maybe create your own! Vintage and charity shops are a great place to find quirky jars, sit down one afternoon with a bright coloured pen and some paper and create your own with personal messages of love, tasks you know they enjoy doing but don’t take enough time for and memories of time you have spent with them.
For the person who loves tea and cake
Check out groupon, itison and wowcher! They have deals all over the UK for afternoon tea which won’t break the bank- you also don’t need to tell the other person you’re paying with a voucher if you don’t want too! Just write a little handmade personal voucher and add it to their card.
For the person who likes a show
Tickets to see a show are a great excuse to dress up nice and spend some quality time together making memories. Buy tickets now for later in the year to ensure nothing is last minute and you might be able to save up in that time to treat them to dinner as well! With tickets starting from as low as £12 for some shows, this won’t break the bank.
Manchester- The Bodyguard starring Alexandra Burke at the Palace Theatre, has a price promise of £13 for selected seats!
London- The Comedy about A Bank robbery at Criterion Theatre, tickets from £12
For the person who cares about others
For the person who has everything, and wants nothing. This is a great gift to get, Oxfam offers charity gifting, starting from £5, the choices are funny and will make the person your giving it to smile. Purchase some ‘heroic honey bees’ at £12 or ‘a pile of poo’ at £12.
Everything goes to helping those in poverty earn a living. Funny, heartwarming and thoughtful, you can’t go wrong!
For the person who loves flowers
Cliche, but if you’re loved one loves flowers you really can’t go wrong. You can pick up a bunch from your local supermarket. If you have the time, try putting together your own display by choosing three or four smaller, cheaper bunches to create a bespoke bouquet. You can also find a high street florist and let them know your budget, and your loved ones favourite colours and they will put something beautiful together for you.
If you have your own garden, planting ahead for cutting flowers is a fantastic idea to create from the heart gifts, especially if you can say you grew them yourselves.
Try taking this gift up a notch, scour your local charity shops for a vase, and gift the flowers already displayed, with something they can keep using forever.
