How to be a Santa on a small budget

Christmas is just around the corner, and the atmosphere is already lively. Christmas is about giving, and the anticipation of gifts or presents is quite natural. Christmas is not just a festival of remembering Christ and celebrating His birthday, but it is also a time to get together, have fun, forget about worries, and be good to each other.

Gifting is the highlight of Christmas, though, of course, we are not taking away the importance of the Christmas tree or the priceless gift the world has got in the form of Jesus Christ. Exchanging gifts during Christmas has become a universal phenomenon, and this indulgence is not constrained to the gifting of presents by the old Wise Man, known for his famous red garb, the long, snow-white beard, and a jingling bag of gifts on his back. But each individual, irrespective of gender, can be a Santa for someone. After all, everyone likes surprises, gifts and appreciation. You can be a Santa in your jeans and t-shirts, or your shorts, or in your office wear.

That is why we thought we should bring together products for gifting under a budget that to Santa won’t seem a bit over the odds, while Santa can still perform the act of giving and bringing smiles to people’s faces.

Gifts that don’t burn a hole in your pocket

One can find numerous valuable gifting items between Rs. 500 to Rs. 2000. Everyone enjoys some or other form of music, so a portable Bluetooth speaker, a pair of earphones or headphones is a good gift. If the person to whom you want to gift is a female, you can consider gifting female grooming products. But what about the guys, don’t they groom themselves? They surely do. So, you can think of gifting them male grooming products. For the proper maintenance of clothes, one can consider gifting irons and garment steamers.
