    Grab Bag Gift Ideas on a Budget

    What do you get someone when you don’t know that someone very well? It can be tricky, especially if you’re locked into a specific price range, as in the case of grab bag gifts. Below are some ideas to get you started. Be aware that if you opt to give bath or food products, you may want to check for allergies first. *this post contains affiliate links*

    • Gift cards to restaurants, coffee shops, or other general places
    • Lottery tickets
    • Bath and body products such as body lotions and shower gels
    • Candles
    • Stationery and/or office products (notepads, memo cubes, note cards, pens, business card holder, personalized stationery)
    • Chocolates
    • Cookies and other baked goods
    • Fruit basket
    • Bottle of wine
    • Reusable coffee cup with coffees or teas
    • Picture frame
    • Puzzle books (crosswords, word finds)
    • Board game

    If you are familiar with the person’s likes and interests, you can also look into:

    • Books
    • CDs
    • DVDs
    • Novelty items regarding the recipient’s profession or hobby
    • Items the person collects

    If you don’t know the person well, I advise steering clear of clothing, jewelry, religious items, and anything too specific, such as sports team memorabilia. Also avoid anything that may be offensive or vulgar.

    Hi, I'm Phyllis! I am a fun-loving-spirited mom of three (ages 24, 21 & 18). I have been and continue to go through the many stages of parenthood with my husband of 27 years (together for 33 so if that doesn't scream commitment, I don't know what does!). We also have two pups who are equally as crazy as humans! :)
