Cheap Gift Ideas

There’s always that one person who’s hard to shop for. Whether it’s their birthday or another holiday, it can be challenging to find a gift for them. Sometimes having a few generic gift ideas that won’t break the bank can really help. Today, we are going to be discussing some of our favorite gifts to get when you don’t know what to get someone and don’t want to spend a ton of money. Here’s our top picks:


If you know someone that really loves Christmas or the holiday season, this is a great gift that you can even personalize for them. It doesn’t have to be given to them on Christmas, but anytime.

Maybe you know someone that is a collector? Get them an ornament to add to their collection. They’ll be thrilled to hang it on their tree when the time comes. 

Bottle of Wine

A great gift for any wine lover is pretty obvious. A bottle of wine. This is a great gift to give someone as a housewarming or hosting gift. However, it can also be given anytime of the year for virtually an occasion.

To take things up a notch, try wrapping the bottle of wine in a nice dish towel. You can then tie the top off with a piece of twine or ribbon. This is a practical gift that anyone will appreciate.


Candles are a go to gift for many when they are stuck on what to get. However, there are so many different ways you can personalize a candle gift. Make it more meaningful by picking their favorite scent or something that reminds you of them. There are so many fun brands of candles that you can choose from. Pick from one of their favorite brands or even a scent from their favorite destination.


Soap is a great gift since everyone uses it and needs it. This can be a great gift if you are looking for more of a spa inspired gift. If you are shopping for a person that likes to pamper themself, this might be the perfect gift for them. Try picking out a soap at a local farmers market. This is something people don’t typically buy for themselves but would be happy to receive. 


For the coffee drinkers out there, I think it’s fair to say you can never go wrong with a mug. This is a great gift that is super useful. Again, make the mug personal to them by putting their name on it, their favorite team, or more. There are so many different options with this gift.


Last on our list is a plant. You can get plants for cheap at your local home store or even replant one you already had in a cool pot. This is a fun gift that someone can have for a long time. 

Whatever gift you are thinking of giving, make sure it is something that they will love by making it more personal. This is a common theme among all of these gift ideas. If you are ever stuck, try taking some ideas from here and make them your own. Happy gifting!
