Present Buying

Answered 1 year ago

Ahh I feel so stressed when it comes to present buying no matter if it is for my side of the family or my husband. How does one know and set a appropriate gift giving budget. We are fortunate that we are comfortable for money but i still find it hard to know how much to spend on birthdays for parents as well as mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Does anyone have suggestions how they worked it out be appreciated

Find out what magazines they like and get them an annual subscription. That’s what I do for my family’s birthdays and Christmas and they love it. I then send a big hamper to each family for Christmas as well. I get the kids a gift voucher each and they are happy too. Easy!

Second this! I bought my mates kid a annual subscription to Kids National Geographic. He absolutely loves it. Firstly he gets mail every month and he enjoys the content. Win win.

I'm all about sentimental gift whether it's $50 or $100 or more. For example, my sister loves candles and cant fathom spending her own money on it. $50 candle and she loves it! Or Ecoya hand wash $25. She doesnt want to spend it again but $25 later, she loves it.

If you son’t have to worry about money then think of their interests. For example I know someone who are into making kombucha & mentioned she wants to start fermenting so I got a kit and books.

Think sentimental for some, like family photo in a nice frame.

Thanks although we don’t have to think about money I still do, so I am happy to gift things associated with there interests but at the same time I still like to budget and not spend just cause we have money

We just spend roughly $50. More if we know they will love it. Less for the same.
