Can't find the right present?
Got your knickers in a knot and can’t find inexpensive gifts at the right price?
Why wait till the Christmas rush or stress out with last minute birthday present shopping?
Save Money Hound provides some top tips on shopping for inexpensive gifts and how to save money when you buy gifts.
Save money and shop through the year for gifts
You may or may not be a shopaholic but have a go and try to shop steadily through the year. You probably already know that each year you have to buy a present for Aunty Mary, Uncle Joe, your Mum and Dad, and twin nieces, but why wait till the last minute?
Make a list of presents you have to buy for the year, and when you do go shopping, pick up presents to add to your present treasure box throughout the year.
Save money and shop for the unexpected
Didn’t know you would be attending little Betsy’s best friend’s birthday party and it is tomorrow? When you go shopping, pick up lots of useful gifts and add them to your treasure box. You never know when you might need a present. Have a few in stock for unexpected occasions.
How to find a bargain
Buying great presents does not mean shopping at the annual stocktake sales. In fact, the best bargains can be had just browsing through shops and finding sale items promoted by individual shops or finding presents to buy at a normal price which are good value. The secret to a good bargain is finding a present that you need, and buying it at a good value price so that you can save money.
Make your own handmade gifts
Are you stuck for inexpensive gift ideas?
Be innovative and put your creative juices to making your own inexpensive gifts. Whatever your talents, something made by yourself will be especially appreciated by the recipient. This can extend to making your own cards as well to go with your own handmade gifts.
Happy shopping for inexpensive gifts!
