How to choose the best gifts on a budget

If you're on a tight budget, it's likely that you'll need to choose affordable gifts for most of your friends and family. If you do need to rely on some budget gift ideas to see you through Christmas, you can still impress your loved ones by picking gifts they will really love and which shows how much you care.

When buying gifts for family, consider gifts you've exchanged with them in the past. Think about if there's anything you can buy which may have sentimental value attached to it, such as a framed photo of your family or a charm which may represent something personal. If the gift is for close friends or your significant other you can also buy sentimental gifts, or perhaps something that they want or need.

If the gift is for a coworker but you aren't sure of what they'd like, pay attention when they are talking about Christmas or take a look at their desk or workstation and see if there's anything obvious they need. If all else fails, a fun, quirky gift is always appreciated.

    I am trying to find an Australian Plant Nursery that has stock of “Snowflake” (Euphorbia Leucocephala). I want to buy 2 of these and have them sent as a present to my daughter who lives in the Atherton area.

      Hi Rose,

      Thanks for your comment. I’ve done some initial research to see where you could buy the Snowflake plant. From what I can see you will need to visit your local nursery and they will be able to order it in.

      Best of luck finding the plant – make sure you let us know how you go with the plant.

      Cheers
      Matt
