How to choose gifts for under $10

Buying gifts on a budget can be difficult and time consuming. Just because the gift doesn't cost you an arm and a leg doesn't mean you don't have to put the effort in and sometimes the less expensive gifts require the most time and effort. Here's a quick guide to help you choose your gifts.

  • Personality

Consider the personality of the person you're buying for. Are they loud and outgoing? If so they might enjoy an experience gift or something for entertaining. If they are more quiet they might enjoy something they can use at home or a voucher so they can choose themselves.

  • Occupation

The occupation of the person you are buying for can help you a lot because that is where they spend the majority of their time. Do they work in a physical job? If so, they might like a present that they can use to relax on the weekend. If they work in a technical job they might like the latest gadget or even a voucher to buy apps.

  • Do your research

Ask around - maybe their family or friends know what they might like. When large occasions such as Christmas are looming people are often talking about gift ideas or things they would like to receive, so be sure to listen because they may be dropping subtle hints as to what they might like.
