Inexpensive Christmas Gifts - Can you name some?


#1 by valerie » Tue Dec 04, 2012 11:40

Looking for some inexpensive gifts for Christmas? Maybe you can suggest some? Here is some ideas I thought of or have came across:

QVC - sells a unique item of 3 mini cell handbags for about $24. That pans out to about $8 per gift. So if you have 3 women in your life, those make a very nice, unique, and inexpensive gift. They are little handbags that will hold a cell phone and a few other teeny items such as lipstick. They mini handbags can be clipped to your belt loop, larger handbag, etc. Very cool items.

Privacy Stamper - I saw these on QVC too but no doubt they could be found else where. These are very cool too. You know the numerous magazines and junk mail people get, will have their name and address on them. Well, you take this little stamper, and stamp on the address which hides the address. You just have to see these items because they are really unique and a very bright idea plus, very inexpensive.

Office Supplies - Ok, who doesn't need office supplies these days? From pens and pencils to printer paper. I'd much rather have a package of printer paper then something I will never use.

Calendars - Well, some of these are rather unique today. Calendars always make a great Christmas gift and it seems one can never have enough of them. They're always a great and inexpensive gift for Christmas since the new year is right after Christmas and everyone's calendars are near the end.

House shoes - I go through these like ice cream or maybe faster. They're always a hot item at Christmas time and many are only $5 to $10.

Magnifying glass/Letter opener - Alrightie some of the most simple and inexpensive gifts, are often never thought of. I don't know why it is but often a magnifying glass and a letter opener are sold as a set. It doesn't matter if you are young or old, everyone can use a magnifying glass. Plus, these items look nice on a desk.

I suggest a Calendar, but is it not as simple as the ordinary calendar, do some creative works from calendar, such as a tarpaulin Calendar with the pics of someone you would like to give a gift or a Calendar with some Bible verse so that every time they look at the Calendar they will still remember God's word. I am very sure they will really appreciate it :)

Add to the list perfume and cologne. Whenever I go to Walmart every Christmas to shop, they usually have solo bottle perfume/colognes for sale for anywhere between $7-$20. Always makes for a nice holiday gift without pressuring your budget.

homemade gifts and recycled materials are cheap.

The little flashlights are always a good buy. I've ordered them from HSN two or three Christmas's and have always been satisfied with them. They're nice to place in your handbag and even to keep one by the fuse box, etc.

Socks, gloves, hats are usually a good buy unless you're giving it to someone that lives in a warm climate. :lol:

I bought a couple sets of the merino wool socks at qvc last night. Mostly good reviews but some not so good. Those
are 3 pair for I think it was about $25. If you have a few men on your list, those are suppose to be very warm boot
socks so one pair for each man, would be a nice yet inexpensive gift.

Young women/girls usually like cosmetics, nail polish, bubble bath and that sort of thing, can always get items like that at relatively inexpensive prices.

Walmart sells many gift sets. I like the ones that have coffee mugs or a travel mug, or soup cups included. Usually they have the mugs and a package or more of coffee and altho vary in price, some very nice ones for $5 to $10.
