Easy Budget-Friendly Birthday Gift Ideas

Angelina Phil

Buying gifts for our loved ones is always fun and exciting. Be it picking flowers for Mother’s Day or saving up for your BFF’s birthday, we always want to make the day special for the people we love. People who are dear to us undoubtedly deserve all the affection and attention on their birthdays. But sometimes, we cannot afford the heavy price tags and luxurious items. However, you don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket to buy a wonderful gift. At the end of the day, it’s not the gift but the efforts and thought that count. 

If you are on a tight budget, buying gifts that cost an arm is just unnecessary. Eye-watering prices can never symbolize how much you care. So, here are some amazing gift ideas that are not just thoughtful but are also brilliant bargains:

Photo Frames

Photo frames never go out of style and these days, everyone hoards them for decorating their bedroom walls. You can just gift them a store-bought frame or to make it extra special, get their photograph framed. A framed photo of you two enjoying a ride, having fun at the park, or just a cute selfie- just go for any picture which holds happy memories. If s/he has any motivational quote that they live by, you can write it in calligraphy on paper and get that framed.

 Film Posters

If your friend is a movie buff, this would be an awesome gift for them. Posters are cheap and are easily available. Pick the posters of their favorite films or if you can’t find them, get them printed. Stick to an A4 size since the bigger the poster, the more it would cost

 Jar of Sweets

Everybody has at least one chocolate or sweet that they can’t say no to. Even the ones without a sweet tooth have their favorite sweet treats. Birthday is the perfect time to spoil them with what they love. All you need is an empty jar and a handful of the candy/chocolate they love. The best part of this present is you get to upcycle something that you already have. Just stuff the jar with the treats, tie the lid with a ribbon and stick a ‘Happy Birthday’ note or you can even put up some funny one-liners. If you want to go the extra mile, why not buy some birthday flowers to go with the sweet jar?

 Notebooks and Pads

 If your friend loves to write or sketch, purchasing a gift for them would be very easy. Just buy a notebook or sketchpad and surprise your poet-in-making friend with it. Don’t forget to add a personalized message and slip it in the notebook. You can even buy a fancy pen or a set of drawing pencils to encourage the writer and artist, within your pal. 


Bouquets are the most classic and timeless birthday gift. Perfect for any occasion, a bunch of fresh blooms can make anyone’s day. Get your friend a happy birthday bouquet with all their favorite flowers. If they have a sweet tooth, you can even tuck in some chocolates in the bouquet. If you want to surprise them even more, go for a online flower delivery in Mumbai i.e. if you are in Mumbai, like I am. That would drop the flowers at their doorstep and make their birthday a lot more memorable. Since flowers come in all price ranges, you can go for what suits your budget. 

These are some of the easy, thoughtful and highly affordable gifting ideas for your friend, family or partner’s birthday. There are hundreds of gift stores and online portals that offer many gifting options at reasonable rates. You can even scroll through sites to get the best deals on flowers and bouquets. Moreover, you can add a personal touch to any gift by slipping in a handmade birthday card, a letter or a simple note telling them how thankful you are to have them in your life. Always remember, the thoughts, love, and efforts value a lot more than the prices and materialistic gifts that you get them. Above all, give them the gift of your time and affection.
