It’s that time of year when frantic shoppers hunt through stores for gifts. However, college students know that finding the perfect gift at a decent price is not always easy. Here are some ideas for affordable gifts.
With the cold comes the urge to cuddle, so who wouldn’t want to curl up by the fire in something comfy and cozy? Blankets, scarves and hats make for great presents, and these items are usually reasonably priced. Or go the do-it-yourself route and make something warm and fuzzy for a loved one.
For the friends who love reading or poetry, head to a used bookstore and find an old copy of their favorite novel. Used books are perfect gifts because they tell their own story in addition to the story inside, and they are inexpensive. Check out Gardeners, a bookstore in Tulsa, for affordable books.
For the more sentimental people in life, gifts that come from the heart will be cherished forever. Try telling that special someone just how loved and important they are with a handwritten letter.
One last tip is to look for sale items and clearance. It is possible to find expensive items for a much lower price. Hopefully these ideas will help avoid breaking the budget as love is shown this holiday season through the gift of giving.
