Great Value Gift Ideas
Buying gifts can be ridiculously expensive. But, it’s also complicated. If you are buying for a friend or relative, you always feel you have to buy them gifts to the same value they’d buy you, and whoever you are buying for, you want to be able to trust that what you are spending your hard-earned money on is worth it. That you are buying someone something that will last, or enrich their life in some way. Because of this, it’s important to realize that the best value gifts aren’t always the cheapest. But, that they are rarely the most expensive. The best value gifts are the ones that are worth the money and give the recipient some joy. Here’s a look at some of the best value gifts that you can buy.
Buying someone shares is an excellent way of giving them something worthwhile, that will grow in value in the future. It’s the financial gift that keeps on giving. Check out stockpile fees to make sure you are getting the best deal, but the amount you buy, and what you buy into is up to you. You could get them shares in something they already love, like their favorite company or brand, or in an up and coming new business. If you want to get them a little bit of a huge brand, don’t worry about not being able to afford it, you can even buy fractions of a share nowadays.
An experience day or tickets to an event may not seem hugely good value, as they don’t last for very long. But, the memories do. The recipient will have the memories of that day long after a box of chocolates or bottle of wine has gone. This can be the perfect gift for that person in your life that seems to have everything they want.
Just think about who they are. Would they prefer to try an extreme sport or spend their day relaxing in a spa? Can you see them testing a supercar or skydiving?
This is another gift that can keep on giving. Buying someone a course, even if it’s just a taster or a one-day event, can be a fantastic way of introducing them to a new skill or hobby that could stay with them and bring them joy for a long time to come. It could be something that helps them at work, or gives them the skills they need to start their own business, making them a lot of money in the future.
A hamper is always a good option if you are not quite sure what to get. But, don’t buy a ready-made hamper, they often include things that you don’t want to buy or end up costing more than buying things individually. Instead, shop around for things you know they will want. Go to charity shops, yard sales and shop of eBay for bargains. These things don’t need to be expensive or large, just a basket of small, thoughtful gifts can make someone’s day.
