Budget-Friendly Secret Santa Gift Ideas

The festive period is full of cheer but Secret Santa isn’t always filled with as much fun.  Don’t let the conundrum of finding a good gift get you down.  There are two things to remember when picking out a gift: one, it shouldn’t set you down financially. And two, it should demonstrate thoughtfulness and creativity.

So without further ado, here are my five fun gifts for friends…

For the Best Friend

You spend all your time with her and you do everything with her.  You want to show her just how much she means to you but what to buy?  Often the best gifts for friends are sentimental ones.  Why not buy a locket for her.  You can put a photograph of the both of you in the middle and no doubt, it will be something that she will cherish for years to come.

Budget-Friendly Secret Santa Gift Ideas For the Boyfriend/Husband

You will want to make this one special so why not spend the money on a cinema date and sweets.  Share a night with your beau and give him some fun and laughs.  He is much more likely to appreciate an evening out than a few gifts from Harpers Bazaar. 

For Her

If there is anything that a girl likes it’s time with her friends.  Remind her of all the fun you have had together by making up a collection of photographs.  Put them in a frame, make a photo book, a photo montage or even transfer them on a photo mug for a fun gift that you won’t be expecting.

Budget-Friendly Secret Santa Gift Ideas For Him

Men are a tricky one to buy for but there are plenty of things that will go down well.  A bottle of Jack Daniel’s or whatever his favourite tipple is will always be favoured.  Alternatively, look on websites like I Want One of Those where you will find a plethora of funny little gadgets that are sure to go down a treat.

If you are shopping for a boy on behalf of your little one then usually anything football or car related will go down well.  Alternatively, why not choose a good kid’s film for them to watch with all their pals?

For the Girl that Wants Everything

For the girl that seems to want and have everything, a hamper of goods is the best option here.  Fill a basket full of nail varnish, bath bombs, chocolate and other girly things.  The effort and presentation will blow them away and plus, it makes for the perfect girly night in.
