Sometimes, it can be hard to know what to get for someone’s birthday. Whether you are looking for a friend, family member or other loved one, you may find yourself coming up short when it comes to new ideas. Or you may be looking for high-quality, budget-friendly gift ideas. Whatever the case, here are three ideas to get you started.
Scrapbook or Photo Album
If you and your friend or loved one take a lot of pictures together, making them a scrapbook or filling out a photo album can be a sweet way to remind them of the fun times you have had together. Now that most photos are almost always available online only, taking the time to pick your favorites and put them into an album or book for your loved one can make for a lovely keepsake.
Custom Cookie and Sweets
Baking your friends sweet treats is a great way to show them you care! By spending time and energy into making them something to enjoy, you can show them they matter. If you don’t consider yourself to be gifted in all things baking, there are companies that can offer you a wide range of choices in cakes, cookies and cupcakes (even customizable ones) that might fit the bill. A simple Google search of “cookies arlington heights” or something similar can help you find bakeries in your area.
A Splash of Greenery
Houseplants are a great budget-friendly gift even for friends and family members with no green thumb. There are a handful of easy-to-care-for plants that will thrive indoors. Plants can lift people’s spirits, bring joy and even clean the air! They can be a great addition to your loved one’s home.
Gifts don’t have to break the bank. Try one of these three gift options the next time you’re prepping for a birthday party.
