Do you have a craft-based hobby? Create a gift with your personal touch from your crafted items such as a crocheted scarf, a knit cap or a framed origami decoration. Aside from being economic, you can plan and ready these way ahead in time for stress-free holiday gifting.
Gift of hobby supplies
For people with craft-based hobbies on your list, a basket of hobby supplies can be a very relevant gift. You can choose supplies within your budget to make it as exclusive and cost-effective as you like.
A gift down the memory lane
Make a customised storybook or a comic strip depicting your own story with a specific recipient. You can order online for such products, if you’re not able to do it yourself. It’d be a great reminder of how much you cherish the relationship and yet be within your budget. Similarly, you could gift a photobook or a make a video collage of special moments shared with the recipient.
A recurring gift
A gift of a favourite magazine’s annual subscription or a paid membership for a gym or Yoga classes will make the recipient remember you fondly throughout the year!
