Poor middle class! I often feel pity on my status, curse heaven when I go out to shop. With the gloom hovering over the economic market shopping for gifts for us (the middle class) has literally become a challenge. But now I know the trick, rather mastered the skill and in a mood to share with all my fellow middle class friends.
Finally, I have learnt a lesson. A gift that speaks of your intention is more appropriate than just a costly gift. Expensive gifts are not the ultimate for gifting your loved ones.
- Blankets and embroidered pillows
- A local wine bottle
- Carpentry kits
- Photo album
- Cross stitching kit
- Memo holders
- Versatile pocket knife
- Tool kits
- Collectibles – Personalized caps, CDs, Shirt of a Home Team
- Stationary – like personalized notepads, pens, diaries, etc.
can be a good gift and that too within your budget.
Take my word. Don’t spend more on expensive greeting cards; focus more on the actual gift and stay within your budget (Greetings cards cost more than more than the gift). Check out the online buying option for a budget shopping experience.
If you have ample time on hand for delivery, then browse through online shopping websites like eBay, Amazon and Overstock to check the price and features of different products that you may want to buy as a gift for someone you love. You can easily compare the price of products and brands and take advantage of the sale and discount offers on these websites to shop for gifts within your budget.
Since today is Friday I hope for this weekend shopping you will take care of all this.
