~Inexpensive Gift Ideas for the Hard to Shop For~

Since it's getting close to Christmas {Already? I thought we did this last month} here is a quick list I have gathered of inexpensive  gift ideas for that hard-to-shop-for special somebody. This list is not a paid sponsorship or a review, it's just something I thought of that I wanted to share with y'all. Feel free to add your ideas in the comment section below!

1. Soap.
Whether it's handsoap, a bar of soap, or soap shavings for a bath, giving the gift of some good-smelling soap will brighten the receivers Christmas, and who doesn't love a useful gift?
$1-$10 {or however much you want to spend}

2. A coffee or tea mug
A mug with some instant coffee, hot chocolate, or a few tea bags is the perfect gift for those cold, cold days of winter ahead.

3. Candles.
One of my favorite things to give my mom is a candle or two. They smell good, make the room smell good, and relax me every time.
If you want to give a decent candle that doesn't give you a headache from strong fumes, and that lasts quite a long time, I recommend going to a craft Store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. The usually run from $5-$10 depending on the size.
 Tractor Supply has some adorable country-style candles that are scented from bacon, maple syrup, or peppermint candy.

4. Kitchen Utensils.
This may seem like an odd gift, but if you think about it... when have you not used a kitchen utensil? Be it a spatula, some spoons, skewers even? It will give both of ya'll a good laugh, but it will also be a very useful  thing to have.

5.  A Handmaid Calendar,
I gave my brother a calendar last year that I had printed off the internet and made into a "Forever Alone" calendar. I had made each month a different pun about being single (i.e. Forever Alone February, Just Me July, All by Myself April, Don't Date December.)  He loved it, and we both had a good laugh after he opened it.
HERE are some templates

6. Some Headphones.
Maybe they love music, maybe the travel a lot, or maybe they do some work on a computer; but who hasn't used headphones? Maybe buy four or five pairs and give them all at once.

7. A Relaxing Piano Music CD
Everyone's taste in music differ, but our taste in relaxing piano music doesn't. Whether It's Yiruma, Jim Brickman, or Michele Mclaughlin, (or maybe one of your own favorites) relaxing piano music is {in my opinion} the perfect gift for anyone.
Price varies

I hope I have given you some ideas. If you have some of your own, then please add to the comment section below!
Blessings, Abigail.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
