Christmas is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about presents for your best friends! It’s a difficult time at the minute so if you’re looking for something more affordable, that’s still really cute and thoughtful, you’re in the right place. Choosing a gift and showing your friend that you care really doesn’t need to be expensive, and we hope that our ideas here show you just how true that is! Whether you want to create a gift that your loved one can keep, or you want something really cute and cosy for them to enjoy shorter term, we’ve got options for everyone. We know your friend will love these affordable gift ideas, so look no further and get shopping without having to spend an absolute fortune!
First up, if you want something that your friend can keep, then choosing some thoughtful jewellery is such a nice idea. This really doesn’t have to cost much, as you can find affordable handmade pieces online, you could choose affordable but thoughtful dainty gold bracelets with engravings, or you could also even make it yourself! You can get kits on places like Amazon where you are sent a range of different beads, hooks and latches and then you can create whatever you want, from bracelets to earrings, necklaces and everything in between. This is really fun and creative, it can be really affordable, and you can create something completely unique for your friend.
A Pamper Kit
Another great and thoughtful gift idea is to put together a pamper kit for your best friend. Think of their favourite things for a pamper night and put them all together in a cute little basket. This can cost as much or as little as you’d like and is such a nice gift. Start with some things for them to have a hot bath or shower, like a nice new shower gel or bath bomb. Then include some skincare, maybe some face masks or vegan skin care products. You could put in some fluffy pyjamas for them to get cosy in and maybe a candle to light. Finish off with some of their favourite snacks to eat whilst watching a film. Your options are endless with this, so have fun with it!
Personalised Song Plaque
If you and your friend have a really memorable song from your friendship, then you can order a plaque with a code that can be scanned to play the song, along with some other really cute details. Many of them light up and come with a nice base, so it makes such a nice decoration in any room and it will be a constant reminder of your friendship for them! If a song doesn’t come to mind, you can get similar things for locations, so you could pick out a location where you have a great memory and have a cute map printed off.
