Ah Christmas, that most joyful time of year. A time for family, a time for delicious food, and unfortunately a time for big money. The larger your family is, the more gifts you have to worry about. However, quantity is still possible while still keeping costs low.
Celebrating Christmas with a woman or teenager girl? Chances are she loves makeup. Makeup doesn’t just come from department stores and expensive specialty shops. Have you ever taken a stroll down the aisle at a drugstore and visited a little section called Wet N’ Wild? Lipstick can be as low as $1 a piece. Buy several of these paired with a couple $2 nail polishes and maybe a nice compact mirror and voila! You’ve got yourself the gift of beauty!
I’m yet to meet a person that doesn’t like candles. Candles are soothing, they smell good, and even if you don’t like burning them, they are a great decorational piece! Candles don’t have to be expensive. You can find them everywhere from the grocery store to the dollar store. And here’s the best hack of all: you can make them! Try an at home beeswax candle recipe, or even make it a craft activity with your child melting crayons into a candle! Candles are loved by both genders and sure to be a crowd pleaser.
A Wellness Package
You don’t have to buy someone a $200 gym membership to give the gift of health. Weight loss and fitness doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. How about a basket of healthy items that you can find at your everyday drugstore? A cute idea might be an apple, a 1000 count bottle of vitamin C and a pair of dumbbells from a thrift store. You can often find exercise equipment for practically free. A wellness package is a great idea for a family member that’s been looking to make a change in their health regimen.
A personalized coffee cup
These days you can find all kinds of online stores that will create a custom cup with an uploaded image of your choice. Perhaps you’d like a more personalized approach and prefer to make your own cup? Head to the craft store and buy a heat friendly/beverage safe molding clay. Or simply purchase a plain white cup and have at it with some permanent markers. Sometimes the greatest gift a personalized one that your loved one can enjoy every day with a ritual such as coffee.
A phone case
Much like the personalized coffee cups you can also find a variety of services offering personalized phone cases. Everyone has a phone these days, and goodness knows how easy it is to break one. Give your family member the gift of phone protection. That’s something anyone could use!
