How to do Christmas on a budget and still give great gifts
Gifts on a budget
Definition; Combining the art of giving amazing gifts, with the self-satisfying feeling of saving money.
The ideas of ‘gift buying on a budget’ and ’the most amazing, unique, coolest and unusual products around’ rarely crossover. But here at Firebox we’re not scared to combine those competing concepts into a tasty gift sandwich!
We’ve even made it easy for you by cramming these inexpensive goodies together in one blog post. You’re welcome, Christmas!
Want to give someone the (wondrous) gift of Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur, but your budget is ‘under a tenner’, never fear! This subtly-sweet, iridescent and shimmering liquid-joy comes in a handy pocket-sized miniature bottle, containing a double measure of the good stuff.
Save someone from the arduous task of untangling an absolute bird’s nest of fairy lights this year, and give Make Your Own Neon Lights as a gift. Plus, we heard the traditional Christmas colours are so over this year, and nothing says ‘festive season’ like some lovely blue and pink neon. Rave into Boxing Day.
Got a karaoke-loving friend and want to avoid being cornered in a sweaty karaoke booth for a rendition of Shaggy’s ‘It Wasn’t Me’? Then give the Mini Karaoke Microphone as a gift. This diminutive device plugs straight into your smartphone and links up to any karaoke app (we suggest giving Wurrly a go) to record your voice (and face) crooning (wailing) all sorts of abysmal tunes.
If you’ve had it up to ‘here’ with reindeers getting all the magical creature airtime at Christmas, mix things up with a genuinely mythic beast – the Unicorn. Give someone the gift of a truly enchanting cuppa with this delightful Elodie The Unicorn Mug.
The annual Christmas Day Monopoly game, which descends quickly into passive aggressive money-shuffling and ends in someone trying to rip the cardboard board in half. Give a boozy and fun alternative to this horrible scenario even if you’re on a budget with Prosecco Pong. Booze and some light tossing – lovely job.
