We all have those gals in our life that are particularly important to use, whether they are our sister, mother, or best friend. However, sometimes getting them the right gift can be tricky. After all, you don’t want to end up spending a fortune, but at the same time finding something that you know they will adore is essential. The good news is that you really can do both. In fact, why not check out our recommendations for gifts under £40 below!
Flowers can be inexpensive gifts
Who doesn’t love to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers as a gift to beautify their home? Although they can be pricey for the person buying them. That is why it’s best to steer clear of arrangements with blooms like roses and peonies and go for something else instead. Unless, of course, you are willing to pay the price.
Happily, there are plenty of options to consider here, including dried flower bouquets delivered through the letterbox, and potted plants like succulents and cacti. All of which are very pretty, on-trend, will cost less, and are sure to put a smile on the face of anyone that receives them.
You may consider buying flowers and a vase at the supermarket and make up your own bouquet.
It’s easy to discount jewelry altogether when looking for gifts under £40. After all, we tend to associate it with precious metals and stones such as gold and diamonds which can be hugely expensive.
However, it is vital to remember that there is a fantastic range of jewellery gifts out there at a very reasonable price. Many of them are also hand-made by independent makers and designers, so not only are you getting a gorgeous product, but you are helping keep a small business alive too.
There are even some like this amethyst necklace that can also be personalized with the recipient’s initials. This makes it extra special to the recipient, and its price considerably lower than £40 too!
There are few of us in this world that don’t like chocolate, and that means it is nearly always a well-received gift. The good thing about this option is you can get something truly impressive for under £40.
One idea is to get a custom-built flower and chocolate bouquet, a combination of the recipient’s favorite chocolate bars, along with flowers in a decorative arrangement. Alternatively, why not find the biggest and most luxurious box of chocs you can find? Just be sure that they suit the taste of the person you are giving them to – which means nut, dairy or other food allergies need to be respected.
This gorgeous gift for under £40 isn’t a thing, but an experience instead. The experience of real relaxation only comes with a visit to the spa. Of course, most people don’t think you can get a spa experience for under £200, but this just isn’t true. Indeed, many spas run special offers either via their own website or on Wowcher and Groupon that will cost you around the 450 mark.
In particular look for evening spa experiences on less popular days such as Sunday, as they can be a real bargain and often include things like treatment and food as well!
So, you can’t come up with excuses now as you have a few ideas here that you can choose from. I’m sure you can think of plenty of other frugal ideas too.
