10 Cheap Gifts Ideas For Friends That Will Make A Big Impact

Thoughtful gifts don’t have to be mega expensive to mean a lot to your friends.

It can be difficult to find that perfect present for them with so many options available, especially if you’re on a budget.

But sometimes being on a budget can be a good thing. It narrows down your options and despite having a little less money to play with, you can still unearth plenty of hidden gems that’ll put a smile on your friends face.

Finding that perfect present on a budget can require a lot of patience and endeavour, but it makes it all the more rewarding when you finally come across that ideal item.

Small gifts can often be the most meaningful and here at IWOOT we have plenty of present ideas that’ll make a big impact on the lucky recipient.

Below we’ve sifted through and selected 10 of our favourite cheap gifts. They’re perfect for birthdays, stocking fillers or as a nice treat for a friend who deserves one.

All of our cheap presents come under £10 and they make great small gifts for men and women.
