With the holidays coming up, most of us are beginning to think about what we should get our loved ones. However, many of us are also worrying about how we’re going to afford these presents.
One simple idea is to buy a loved one gourmet coffee beans and a customized coffee mug to go with them. Just about everyone loves coffee, so being given a week or so of the gourmet kind can be a real treat. If they don’t like coffee, opt for some gourmet tea or cocoa instead. Plus, a personalized mug is very affordable, and but will always remind them of how thoughtful you are.
Depending on whom you have in mind, you can present them with artwork their child made in a beautiful frame. The nice thing about picture frames is they’re relatively cheap, but you can also find options that can be modified. So have the child paint the picture frame too and then insert their one-of-a-kind art. Every parent will love a gift like this.
Fruit and cheese baskets are very common during the holidays, but you don’t need to spend good money to give one as a present. Wicker baskets are extremely cheap and if you go to the right store, you can buy quality cheese and produce at a reasonable price. This way, you’re also able to pick the kind you know your loved one likes best.
The more you customize any of these gifts, the more the recipient will enjoy them. Fortunately, doing so doesn’t have to be expensive or overly time consuming.
