Unique & Affordable Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas Gift Ideas

Four nights to go guys. FOUR NIGHTS.

I cannot believe Christmas is so soon. How did that happen?!

Anyways, as you probably already know, I’ve already uploaded a gift guide for health lovers, however, I also wanted to post a gift guide that was a liiiiitle bit different. So, this post is all about gifts that are unique, affordable (shout out to all the uni students) and even perfect as a last-minute gift.

Homemade Christmas Food

I mean, who doesn’t love baking Christmas goodies and secondly, who doesn’t like eating Christmas goodies?! This is just as much fun for you, as it is for them. You could even buy an inexpensive Christmas plate or mug to place all the goodies in and then wrap it all in cellophane. Pssst, I have some recipes coming to the blog in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!


Ummm, beach trip anyone?! Why not be a little different and give them an experience, or better yet, why not make a pact with that person to go DO something instead of buy each other gifts. You could go hiking, go on a beach trip, take a trip somewhere or go out to lunch. If you wanted to do something health-related, you could set up a weekly healthy date where you go workout together either at the gym or outdoors and then head out for breaky or a smoothie afterwards.


This is so underrated yet can be one of the best gifts. 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 cook. If you’re handy around the house, you could help them out. If you’re great at cutting hair, you could give them free hair services. If you’re a fitness buff and you know that person really wants to get fit, why not plan some workout sessions with them and teach them what to do?

D.I.Y. Vouchers

I used to do this all the time when I was younger, but they totally still work as an adult too ha! It’s kind of like the tip above, but for several little things. So, get creative, think of the things you could offer that person and create some little ‘vouchers’. These can be great for your parents or your besties. For your parents, think of things to do to help them around the house, something tech related if they’re a lil’ technology challenged or a movie night. For your friends, think of things like a night out, a lunch date, a Netflix marathon of their fave t.v. show… Get creative! By the way, there’s really great free printable gift vouchers online too, google it!

Include Someone In Your Holiday Plans

Do you know someone that will be by themselves this holidays? Invite them over for Christmas Day or for a Christmas dinner or perhaps even spend Christmas Eve together. Don’t underestimate the power of your time and attention. Although it’s only a simple gesture, it would mean a lot to them.

Donate Money To A Charity

Do they have a cause they are particularly invested in? Why not donate some money to that charity as their gift. This is such a meaningful and thoughtful gift. You don’t even have to donate a huge amount of money either, just what you can afford, every little bit counts.

    I donate to the Make a Wish Foundation. Also a gift under the K Mart Tree is very special. I do believe in Services as a Christmas present (would be the best present someone could receieve). Useful presents so worthwhile. Love your Blog Chante a job well done. Merry Christmas sweetheart and a very “Happy New Year”!!
