So clearly you’re a cheapskate…otherwise why are you reading this post? But that’s okay, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a cheapskate (apart from the fact you clearly don’t appreciate your friend/ family/ gift receiver (joke-sorry)).
But anyway you’re here, you’re (not) a cheapskate, so lets go…
(1) Gift idea uno: ARROW BOOKMARKS (from lolly sticks)
Because everyone reads…right? *Looks at self in realisation* Oh.
(2) ‘EMBELLISHED’ OREOS
This may be a serious case of ‘good picture, nice try‘, but hey…Oreos are currently on offer in Tesco…
…I said OREOS ARE ON OFFER IN TESCO. Thank you. Lord, I sound like one of those tannoy speaker people.
(3) STARBUCKS LATTE SOAP
For all those so called ‘white girls‘ of the world. Racist if you ask me. But it’s Starbucks, so, do it.
(4)HOME-MADE BUBBLE BATH (ft. printable label-shh)
So strip a wine bottle and shove a cork in it…literally. Choose your label here.
(5) LIP BALM LOCKETS
Looks like a ketchup to me…anyone else? Find out how to make a ketchup locket here.
Okay so perhaps not for your boyfriend or best mate. That’s weird. But image the look on your grandad’s face when he finds a distorted alien-type figure vaguely resembling a human in his stocking. Its easier than you think. It’s here.
(7) BATH BOMBS IN A JAR
Looks like half eaten cupcakes to me. Link’s here.
Okay. Being real: what is the chance that ever layer will be a PERFECT straight line. *Sighs*. Directions here.
If you happen to have a spare baseball…(which I don’t. DAMN IT.) Find out how- here.
…And finally…(10) CUSTOM COLOURED ‘CANDY’
Half of these creations look mouldy. I suppose that’s the style? It’s here.
And we’re done! “The 10 step guide to (not) being a cheapskate“.
No but really, there is nothing wrong with wanting value for money…or in this case just value…you’re not really spending any money (but they don’t know that).
I hope you, my (non-existant) millions of fellow followers, found some satisfaction in reading this blog…and maybe even saved a pound or so in the process!
