You can never go wrong with mugs, I honestly don’t know anyone who hate using mugs. Specially, for a coffee or tea person, they’ll be thrilled on having/using this one of a very few kind of mugs. But the downside is, you can only buy these kind of mugs online.

2. SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses are useful, fun and a great gift for fashionistas. But if you’re buying someone who wears prescription glasses, don’t worry, because you could always provide them with a gift certificate, so they can get the right glasses for their eyes.

3. INSTAX WITH FILM

This stuff is so amazing! These are basically like a polaroids, take a photo and it automatically dispenses your photo. Though, this is a bit expensive, but its price is now much cheaper than before! There are also a bunch of discounts at the present, since holiday seasons are coming so you might get a great deal after all.

4. 2017 PLANNER NOTEBOOK

I know it was a bit cheesy and some may say it’s corni, but for me, giving someone a gift you made yourself makes it much more meaningful to them. This could definitely show how special the recipient is to you, because of the time, love and effort you spent on these gifts.

For me, when it comes to gift giving “it is the thought that counts,” it doesn’t matter how much the gift should cost, as long as it was given whole heartedly, no money or anyone else could equalizs the effort, love and thoughts wrapped in that present. But if you’re still having a hard time thinking of what could be the best gift for a certain person, don’t worry! You just have to carefully think about the receiver’s interests, needs, wants, likes and dislikes, in order to find the appropriate gift to give from the heart.

So those are the affordable gift ideas I got for you guys. I hope you did find some inspirations out of it.

Thank you for reading!❤
