Cheap Unique Gift Ideas

Cheap Unique Gift Ideas

Cheap unique gift ideas can be as original as the giver or recipient. With a little bit of thought and planning, it can be easy to find just the right cheap unique gift ideas for almost anyone on your list. Be sure to consider the recipients style, likes and dislikes, and hobbies or pastimes. You should also be sure to take into account the occasion for the gift-giving.

Some great cheap unique gift ideas for any occasion include personalized "coupon" books. These can be redeemable for almost anything you can think of, from "An Afternoon at the Movies" that can mean a videotape and popcorn at home, to "A Week of Dog Sitting," to "Unlimited Help Organizing Your Closets." Gifts don't need to cost much (or sometimes any) money to be meaningful. When trying to come up with cheap unique gift ideas, think about what the recipient really wants or needs in his or her life. Everyone has special talents to share, whether that means artistic abilities, help around the house, or just spending time listening. Books of "coupons" to share these talents make great cheap unique gift ideas.

Homemade gifts can also make terrific, one-of-a-kind cheap unique gift ideas. Perhaps you need a housewarming gift for someone new to your area. Photographs of local landmarks to help decorate their new home can be an original and inexpensive way to help them furnish their place and acquaint them with the area at the same time. Great cheap unique gift ideas for housewarming gifts can include a basic kitchen item like a colander or salad bowl filled with inexpensive household items, such as salt and pepper shakers, serving utensils, or spices.

For birthdays, some cheap unique gift ideas might focus on the age of the recipient. For instance, for a 25th birthday gift a bouquet of twenty-five assorted floral stems can be more interesting, far less expensive, and much more original than a dozen roses. Other cheap unique gift ideas that focus on the recipient's age can be books or CDs with the age in the titles (such as the CD "Singles 45's and Under" by Squeeze) or a trip to an ice cream parlor that boasts 31 different flavors to celebrate a 31st birthday. Organizing cheap unique gift ideas around the person's age can put the emphasis more on the unique and less on the cheap.
