Over the years, my favourite gifts have been those that didn’t cost a cent, but were filled with love. So, today, I wanted to share with you some meaningful and unique Christmas gift ideas, that won’t cost a fortune. They also make the perfect last-minute gestures!
Homemade Christmas Food
Who doesn’t love baking Christmas treats? Better yet, who doesn’t love eating Christmas treats? If you wanted to buy them something small, why not buy a cute plate or mug to stick the baked goods in? I recommend buying them from small businesses and local boutiques or markets.
A trip to the beach, anyone? Why not shake things up and give them a fun day out! You could even make a pact with that person to go and do something instead of buying each other gifts. Some ideas include hiking, a road trip or going to dinner and then seeing the Christmas lights or carols.
Services are one of the most underrated, yet most helpful gifts you could give someone. Is there something you’re particularly good at or is there a skill you have that the other person doesn’t? Give them the gift of your services! If you’re a great cook, you could teach them how to make some staple meals. Perhaps if you’re handy, you could help them out around the house? If you’re an artist, you could even draw or paint them something that has meaning to them or your friendship.
Include Someone In Your Holiday Plans
Do you know someone that will be by themselves this holidays? Include them in your plans! Whether it’s Christmas Day or for a Christmas Eve dinner. Don’t underestimate the power of your time and attention! Although it’s only a simple gesture, it could mean a lot to someone who doesn’t have family to celebrate with.
Donate Money To A Charity
Does this person have a cause that they are particularly invested in? Why not donate some money to that charity as their gift. It doesn’t even have to be a large amount, just what you can afford. Every bit counts! You could even volunteer somewhere together and make a difference this festive season.
I hope these Christmas gift ideas have given you some inspiration. I’m wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!
