Are you on a tight budget, yet you are invited to a friend’s birthday party? If you are, it could be a good idea to personalize your gift and make the gift yourself, or buy something nice. We’ve got you covered!
If your friend is a fashionista with her own style, you can buy some gems or beads and create a necklace or bracelet. They’re easy-to-make and unique.
Bottle of Wine
Who doesn’t like wine? It’s a classic and very chic gift. A bottle of wine usually doesn’t cost a lot, and if you’ve got a spare minute, you can also nicely decorate the bottle (get some inspiration here).
If your friend loves to read and get inspired, grab a book! Usually novels, stories and photo-albums are not very expensive. Yet before purchasing a book, you have to figure out what she likes.
Candles, as well as candle holders, are probably one of the most romantic gifts. You can purchase a nice, long-lasting candle in such stores as H&M for around 50DKK! The ones from H&M not only create a romantic atmosphere, but also make your room smell really fresh.
Framed photos and collages
If you have some nice pictures with your friend, it could be a good idea to print and frame it as a birthday present. You can also make a simple collage and use it as a main picture. It’s a good idea if you’ve known her for a long time and share a lot of memories together.
Cake or muffins
If you are on a budget and have a couple of eggs, some flour, butter and chocolate or fruit inside your fridge, be creative and bake her a birthday cake! It is relatively easy, and not such a time-consuming task.
Bath products or cosmetics
Admit it, we all love nice-smelling bath goodies. For those on a low budget, you can find relatively cheap sets in The Body Shop (50+75DKK) Another option is to buy some products online; for example: the Yves Rocher shop sells inexpensive, good quality products.
It’s also a good idea to get her a birthday card (or make one yourself!), telling her that you appreciate her a lot, that she makes your life better/more interesting, and so forth. Yet the one thing to remember is that it does not matter what you choose, as long as you do it with your heart!
