If you’re like me, and you seem to have a thousand people to buy countless Birthday/Christmas/Mother’s Day/Father’s Day presents for, you quickly run out of ideas (and money) after the first few occasions.

Never fear! After many hours of window shopping and scrolling through online sales, I’ve compiled a list of fairly inexpensive present ideas that are pretty universal – who doesn’t love getting fresh pillows?!

1. Novelty USBs

These make great stocking stuffers at Christmas time, and I don’t know about you, but I can never have too many USBs (especially if you’re great at losing them in the depths of your desk drawer).

7. New Pillows

When was the last time you replaced those pillows in your bed? Pillow cases should not only be washed regularly, but pillows themselves should be replaced every 6 months to avoid harbouring dirt, oil, dead skin cells and dust mites, which could cause acne and even trigger allergic reactions – new pillows are the gift that keeps on giving!

8. Budget Planner

I bought one of these for my Mum recently, who is currently renovating her kitchen, and she said it’s fantastic to keep track of all the purchases involved in doing a DIY reno. Not only that, you can use them to stay on top of bills, credit cards and grocery shopping.
