57 Last Minute gifts for Him when you are on a BUDGET

*This post contains affiliate links

My husband is an incredibly generous man and giving gifts is his love language. When we decided to tackle our debt full force, birthday gifts, anniversaries, and special holidays were our greatest debate. I didn’t want to curb his generosity or the joy he gets when giving a great gift but the gifts were quickly adding up and wrecking our budget.


So what do you do when you love giving gifts but are on a tight budget?

I realized there was a happy medium. After realizing how easily our budget could be destroyed by birthday gifts for family and friends we got creative!

  • We planned ahead

Both Josh and I have many close family friends and relatives. During our bi-monthly budget meetings we would discuss upcoming parties and holidays and put them into our budget. This meant that if there were a lot of birthdays that month we would have to cut in other areas.

  • We buy online

Amazon is my friend! Where else can you click a button on your lunch break and check something off your to-do list? Life is busy, who has time to go to the store?!? More than that going to the store is dangerous for me. Not just because I am tempted to buy items not budgeted for, but worse than that, I can quickly become discontent and easily discouraged. Paying off debt is a long process, and can become even longer when you get discouraged and fall off the wagon. So stay on the pay off debt train, stay within your budget, and look at these great gift ideas that won’t break the bank.
