Whether your loved ones have been naughty or nice, there is no need to break your budget when buying gifts for everybody on your list. Here are a few gift ideas you can easily purchase for less than $25 at your favorite retailer.
Restaurant gift card
Everyone loves a great meal. A gift card to your loved one’s favorite restaurant can be a perfect gift for a frugal friend.
To really stretch your dollar, also consider Restaurants.com. The website provides gift certificates that allow you to purchase meals at certain eateries for a fraction of the regular cost. Simply search for nearby restaurants and select a venue of your choice.
Single-serve coffee makers
If you know someone who loves both convenience and caffeine, search for single-serve coffee makers. These machines can create a single serving of coffee, tea or cocoa for those on the go.
You can sometimes find these items priced at less than $20. Buying one as a gift is a great way to cure your loved one's caffeine craze while keeping your budget in check.
Every woman needs a great pair of pumps that will stand the test of time. Consider shopping at large retailers that may offer black or nude pumps that never go out of style.
This is a great time to find pumps for $25 or less at many of your favorite stores. These items are sure to save you money when shopping for those on your list.
For those on your list who love great entertainment, consider purchasing a good book, magazine subscription or tickets to a local event. Check out websites such as Amazon.com for deals on books and entertainment in your area.
Sites such as the Krazy Coupon Lady offer magazine subscription deals priced at $4.99 or less.
