Budget Christmas Gift Ideas


Looking to treat someone this festive season but short on cash? Then here are 3 awesome budget Christmas gift ideas to help you out.

These gifts are suitable for anyone, kids or adults, friends or family. They won’t break the bank and will still be sentimental and personal. Making these gifts will bring back the true value and meaning of giving gifts for Christmas.

Budget Christmas Gift Idea – Candy Crackers

What you’ll need:

  • Candy cannisters
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon


This is honestly one of the easiest budget Christmas gift ideas you could ever imagine! All you need is to get your hands on 3 sweet cannisters or you could even use bathroom goodies. Wrap your sweet cannisters in wrapping paper, leaving extra paper on the top and bottom. Twist the top and bottom and tie them with ribbon. Then tie all 3 cannisters together with an additional ribbon.

Budget Christmas Gift Idea – Photo Album

What you’ll need:

  • A notebook
  • Wrapping paper/brown paper
  • Christmas stickers
  • Photos


Why buy a photo album when you can just make one? We used a notebook, covered the book with coloured paper and then decorated the front cover with christmas stickers. I would advise that you cover the front and back of the note booking with book plastic to ensure that it stays in tact. Once you’ve done that you can print photos, stick them into the notebook and write messages. This is a really personal and sweet gift that will always be valued.

Budget Christmas Gift Idea – Personalised Mugs

What you’ll need:

  • White mugs
  • Sharpies


This gift is really so cute! You simply decorate your mug using sharpies or any permanent marker. Once you’ve settled on a design, ensure that you have pre-heated your oven to 180°C and then you simply stick your mug in the oven for a few minutes to ensure that the ink has dried. You can then fill the mug with sweets or cookies and then wrap the mug with paper.
