14 Christmas Gift Ideas If You’re On A Budget This Season In Lebanon

Christmas time has fallen upon us, which means it’s that time of the year again when you scroll endlessly through the internet for ideas of the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Look no further!

Although Lebanon is undergoing one of its worst economic crises in history, this does not prevent the Lebanese from going the extra mile to ensure that this Christmas is filled with joy, laughter, and presents.

Here are 14 gift ideas for when you’re on a budget:

Scented Candles

Simple, yet effective. Not only do candles light up a room (literally and figuratively), but they leave your house smelling of flowers, vanilla, or your choice of scent.

Beaded Accessories

Whether it’s making necklaces, bracelets, or phone straps, beading has re-gained popularity within the past year. Aside from the fun and creative process of creating such items, your loved ones will be donned with accessories made with your love.


If you or your loved one appreciate sentimental presents, then gifting them a scrapbook filled with photos, memories, and letters is the right choice.


You may have seen book-quets going viral on Tiktok or Instagram. I can guarantee you that if you present this gift to your bookworm best friend, they will love you more than their fictional characters.

Color-themed Boxes

Another gift that will wow your loved one is by making them a box of their favorite color and filling it with letters, candy, chocolates, or small notebooks that match that color. The overall presentation will look beautiful and your friend or family member will certainly enjoy the little treats.


If you think CDs are outdated, I’m here to tell you that you are wrong. There is no better way to show your love and appreciation for your loved one than with a CD filled with both of your favorite songs.

Homemade Desserts

The way to the heart of a sweet tooth is through the stomach. Imagine the eyes of your loved ones lighting up at the sight of homemade cookies or brownies – a love language on its own. Bonus points if you customize them to what they like.

Christmas Mugs

Everyone has their favorite mug from which they must have their cup of coffee or tea first thing in the morning.

An amazing gift idea would be one of these super cute Christmas mugs or even a personalized custom mug. Whether it’s a picture of both of you or their favorite musician or television show, you will surely brighten up their mornings.

Crochet items

It’s time to put those crochet skills to use and create a warm blanket, teddy bear, or cardigan as a gorgeous gift for your friends or family.

If you lack that skill, no worries, there are plenty of spots in the country, and even on social media in Lebanon, where you can make a great choice of a crochet gift according to your budget.

DIY Christmas Crackers

If you want to stick with the theme of Christmas, you can origami a Christmas cracker where you can include small items inside, like lipstick or a keychain, or even sweets.

Personalized cushions

Personalized cushions are thoughtful gifts that friends and family can enjoy for years to come, whether embroidered or printed with the person’s name or with an inspiring statement that lifts the spirit all year round.

Fizzy Bathbombs

These are not only a beautiful trend these days, they also make up very enjoyable gifts as they take bathing to a whole new level with gorgeous colors and aromatic organic scents.

Desktop plants

Desktop plants are affordable thoughtful gifts that are both gorgeous add-ups to any working station at home or at the office, and beneficial to one’s mental health. They are stress-soothing, help increase productivity, and also clean the air.

DYI Memory Frame

A gift that will go straight to the heart and trigger a warm smile: A memory frame of a collection of personal photos, whether family or friends photos! Thoughtful, loving, lasting and that won’t break your wallet.

You can create it on your computer by gathering these happy digital photos and put your printer to good use.
