December 2016: Cheap Gifts for Family & Friends

By Izzy Wittek

With the holidays creeping up on us, it can be hard to think of the perfect gift for our beloved friends and family members. From toddlers to grandparents, you never really know what to get them. But don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered! For toddlers and small children, it’s quite simple. Just pick out a toy, such as a Lego set, Barbie doll, a truck, or even a small puzzle with their favorite cartoon character printed on it.

If your mom or dad is a huge sports fan, their favorite team/teams’ sports merchandise makes a perfect gift. is a great place to buy cheap sports merchandise. Usually, aunts, grandmothers, and mothers adore family photo albums and memories. You can make one yourself (which is cheaper) or get one pre-made.

DIY gifts are always amazing to make and give, especially when it’s for a loved one. Some great gifts to give friends would be things like a DIY phone pocket or maybe a hand sewn pillow with their name on it.

People love food, right? What is better than getting one of your favorite snacks from one of your best friends? Simple things like white chocolate peppermint bark, lemon bars, candy canes, cake in a jar, or even cake pops will do the trick. However, if your friends are indecisive, try getting them a gift card to their favorite clothing, food, coffee, sport, or music store.

Something the whole family can enjoy is a personalized mug for each one of them. You can go to and design the perfect mug for your mom, dad, brother, sister, just about anyone. If your friends or family don’t drink out of mugs, then you can get them a personalized water bottle or cup. But, Custom Ink’s prices can be a little ridiculous. Just getting a mug or water bottle with a character or piece specific to them is a great way to show them how special and unique they are.

The holidays are some of the most stressful times of the year. Don’t let it be hectic because you don’t know what to get for the people most important to you. Hopefully, you can use some of the examples as a guideline when you can’t find something perfect for your friends and family members.
