Thoughtful Christmas Gifts That Won’t Break Your Pockets This Holiday Season

As the U.S. continues to face a recession, most people aren’t looking forward to Christmas shopping this year. Inflation continues to force the prices of goods through the roof, making gift-giving even more challenging. However, there are several gift ideas out there that won’t put a dent in your wallet but will put a smile on your loved ones’ faces. 

Check out our list of thoughtful yet affordable Christmas gifts this holiday season. 

Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Candles

Aromatherapy candles tend to serve a much more personal purpose. Take, for instance, Bath & Works Aromatherapy line, which includes scents such as Eucalyptus Spearmint that promotes stress relief. Every candle in the collection is made with essential oils that are commonly used to relieve anxiety and promote better sleep habits. The three-wick candles are priced at $24.50, while the single-wicks are only $15.50. These prices are certainly within most budgets, but those looking for additional savings may sign up for Bath & Body Works reward program. This allows customers to receive coupons that can be used on most candle purchases. Judging by the current state of the world, any gift that promotes tranquility is likely to be appreciated.


Another gift that encourages self-care and relaxation is a massage. Who doesn’t like to be rubbed down after a strenuous work week? A massage appointment is not only considerate but focuses on the well-being of the recipient. Thanks to sites such as Groupon, massages do not have to cost you your electric bill money, as they once did. Many independent spas will offer discounted services. However, chain spa Massage Envy  also offers great deals in time for Christmas. Their 60-minute massage session usually starts at $70. If you are still determining a day to book this gift, gift cards for services may be issued so that your loved one can book a session that suits their schedule.

Shutterfly Photo Gifts

Making memories with your loved ones is priceless. Creating gifts from these loving moments holds immense sentimental value.  Shutterfly provides a website full of products that incorporate family photos into blankets, pillows, Christmas tree ornaments, iPhone cases, and much more. Shutterfly has done a phenomenal job of making its products affordable, with a deals tab containing gifts starting at just $3.99. 

Who said Christmas had to be the reason you go broke? All of these present options are under $100 but will leave a lasting impression on those who receive them. Give any of these a try, and let us know how well they were received. If all else fails, your local Walgreens and CVS have a massive supply of food, retail, and other miscellaneous gift cards for those who prefer to keep it simple this year.
