A great birthday present doesn’t have to be an expensive one. The old adage that it’s the thought that counts is true; someone that is a real friend, or understanding relative, will know that you’re buying them a gift on a budget and will appreciate the effort. With the right amount of effort and thought, you can get the perfect birthday gift within your means.
The great thing about purchasing a gift for a child is that they tend to be happy with a wide variety of toys and other gifts. Movies are generally inexpensive, so purchasing a DVD for a child is a budget-friendly way to make a child happy. You can find toys that will fit any budget, and toy stores and other retailers often have clearances and sales on their inventory, making toys an even more reasonable purchase for a child’s birthday.
• Significant Other
The first thing you should know when purchasing a gift for your wife or girlfriend is that she will love if you have a small gift, such as flowers or chocolates, sent to her place of work. These don’t have to be expensive, just a small gesture of your love for her. Make sure that a personal note is included. Other ideas include books by her favorite author, stuffed animals, or gift baskets. If you know that she has a special hobby or interest, you may be able to find an inexpensive magazine geared towards her interest that you can subscribe to in her name.
Getting a gift personalized can turn an inexpensive gift into a personal gesture. You can get anything from hand towels to a picture frame and have a name or initials embroidered or engraved, and it is possible to get this done at a low cost.
Birthday gifts don’t have to be a drain on your wallet. There’s something to buy anyone in every price range, so don’t be afraid that someone won’t like your gift just because it wasn’t expensive. As long as you’re thinking about what the recipient might like, your gift will be appreciated.
