Inexpensive Birthday Presents

Get ready for these fantastic suggestions for inexpensive birthday presents! Before you beg off from attending a party because you think you don't have the cash to buy a gift with, think again.

These valuable gift suggestions for birthday presents will make you ask yourself, "Why didn't think of that before?" Here are just a few:

Handwritten recipes on simple cards can be superb birthday presents for moms, aunts, sisters, and even men! Be a little creative and try to make an effort to ask friends for their 'secret' recipes, and interview old folks to get traditional recipes handed down from one generation to another. Cost: About $3 for the cards, plus a ribbon for tying them with.

There's a wealth of information you can get for free from the Internet. One smart idea for birthday presents is a deck of playing cards accompanied by a booklet of rules for various card games. To make the booklet of rules, copy and paste them from different websites, format it neatly on Word, and print on specialty paper. Tie the booklet with a garter ribbon. Cost: About $3.50 for the deck of cards, specialty paper, and ribbon.

Make special birthday presents by burning music CDs for the recipient. You'll have to know beforehand the type of music your friend wants. All you need is a CD writer on your computer and some CDs borrowed from your other friends. Cost: A few dollars, the price of blank CDs.

Everyone loves birthday presents they can actually use. Find a hardbound notebook that can double as a journal - teenage girls and even adult women will be so grateful. There's still some old world charm to keeping a journal rather than a blog. Cost: $3-$4.

How about birthday presents that won't even cost you a penny? Bundle up some of your old but still intact fashion and lifestyle magazines, tie them with a ribbon you've recycled from the holidays, and give to your favorite nephew or niece. Cost: $0.

Kids' all-time favorite birthday presents are pets. Unless you're sure that a dog or a cat can be taken care of, it's better to buy a goldfish or a pet turtle for a small boy or girl. They will love you for it. Don't forget to include pet food good for several days and a cage or bowl. Cost: $3-$5

Birthday presents are supposed to be creative, and you can make a display of your creativity by stuffing a teapot with a cache of various flavors of tea. Purchase teabags of oolong, jasmine, green tea, Earl Grey, and other varieties. You can wrap this with cellophane and tie the top with a ribbon. Cost: $10.

Finally, you can save a load on birthday presents by making your own gift baskets or mini-hampers. Make them as small or as big as you want. Instead of giving expensive items as birthday presents, find affordable but chic items, such as bath products, and assemble them in a small wicker basket. Don't forget to have a theme.

Birthday presents are meant to convey to the celebrant that you have taken the time to come up with something for him or her. The more sincere the gift, the more it will be appreciated.
