Christmas tree drawn in the sand

14 Dec How To Give Christmas Gifts On A Budget

Gift giving is an art form. Whether you’re trying to give the perfect present, or you’re concerned with giving cheap gifts, it takes a lot of thought and effort. This year the team at Finance EZI want to make it as easy as possible for you, whilst still making sure any gift you give is a great one.

Are you trying to buy the perfect gift for your partner, parents, or your children? The first step to delivering an amazing gift is determining who you’re shopping for. What might be a great gift for your mother in law is probably not a great gift for your husband, and vice versa.

Once you’ve sorted out the ‘who’ you need to move on to the ‘what’, and this can be the most difficult part. If you’re trying to save money this Christmas, it’s essential for you to think outside the box. Big brand Christmas gifts may add a certain air of excitement when they’re first unwrapped, but they certainly don’t mean as much.

Save money this Christmas & agree on handmade gifts

Handmade gifts are more heartfelt than picking something up in the store, and also much cheaper. Need some ideas?

  • Photograph in a hand painted frame
  • Candles
  • Baked goods
  • Home brewed beer
  • Jewellery
  • Coupon book with thoughtful coupons (free hug, homemade meal etc.)

Secret Santa

How about a family-wide Secret Santa event? If you come from a large family it can often be overwhelming thinking about buying a separate gift for each member. Instead of individual gifts, put all your names in a hat and have everyone select one name. It’s fun, secretive, and really allows you to focus on giving something great and thoughtful to one person rather than stretching the Christmas budget to shop for everyone.

Give the gift of time

This may sound silly but the people you love would probably much prefer to spend quality time with you. Instead of showering them with lavish gifts, buy tickets to go somewhere together, whether it’s a concert for a band you both love or even just the movies. It will be much cheaper and also help to create wonderful memories.
