It's always hard to find the perfect holiday gift for your SO, especially if you're working within a low budget. Of course, it's always the thought that counts, but generally that only matters if the thought is really good.
Here are five thoughtful gifts for your SO that won't make you bankrupt. 1. A free pass for [insert action here] anytime
Cut a piece of construction paper in the shape of a gift certificate. Decorate it and fill it out with something special that you know your SO would love, for example "A free pass for a 40 minute massage to be redeemed anytime." This is cute, simple, and pretty original! 2. A personalized phone case
If your SO has a phone that can be put in a case, personalize a case for them! I've seen this for as inexpensive as 12.95, and a picture of you and your SO together would make a pretty adorable phone case. 3. A meaningful collection of songs
If you're really low on cash, or think this might be especially meaningful to your SO, you can always burn a CD of 20 songs that are especially meaningful and nostalgic to you guys. You can also print it picture of you two and put it behind the plastic on the front of the CD case for a cute album cover! 4. A t-shirt of their favorite band or musician
Bands and musicians tend to have a lot of sales on their otherwise pricey merchandise around the holidays. Keep an eye our for these discounts-- this can be a relatively inexpensive gift, but one that shows you care! 5. A personalized cookbook
Of course, this doesn't work for everyone-- if your significant otehr doesn't like cooking or baking, you're SOL with this one. But if they have eve hinted at the slightest interest in cooking, compile many recipes that seem appealing to you-- you can easily find these online or in cookbooks at home, decorate the pages, and create a cookbook for your girlfriend or boyfriend!
