If you need gifts under $25, we got you. Here’s a hot tip: buy inexpensive gifts when you see them on sale and then save them for later. It saves time and money when you need a small, last-minute gift for a birthday dinner, housewarming party, or just because. And even when you stock up ahead of time, just remember to take time to think about what would mean the most to the person receiving the gift.
For example, if they’ve recently gone through a stressful situation, give them a sweet candle or fuzzy slippers to help them unwind. Think about your loved one’s favorite hobbies, whether or not they have a pet, or if they just moved into a new home. Taking a moment to consider whether or not this gift could be useful shows you care.
You can also easily make a cheaper gift feel thoughtful by adding a handwritten note, looking for named or monogrammed gifts, or finding a gift that reminds them of a shared memory you have together.
