Don't have a lot of money, what's a great present for parents if you're on a budget? (self.AskReddit)
submitted 2 years ago by xmasdreader
This year I wanted to get my parents a really great gift, unfortunately I don't have much money due to rent and other expenses. At best I have $50 to work with. I honestly can't think of anything that would "wow" them. Any ideas reddit?

Put a picture of you in a frame. Or find some pics of you as a baby, in elem. school, middle, and high school, and put it in a partitioned frame. The rents will be very happy.

What your parents want more than any present is for you to not be a fuck-up. Honestly, they'll care more about you getting ahead in life than any present.
But, for $50, take them to dinner and while there give a formal toast and tell them how much you've appreciated what they've done for you. Then sit back and watch you mom cry with happiness.

This is pretty solid.

Make your own cookie cutters for them. I think there's a good example/how to on Make or Instructables
A good book for each that the other will like too.

Find a ceramics shop where they have lots of ceramic items available to paint... The way that it worked at my local one is you buy the ceramic item, paint it there (they'll help you too), and then they bake it in the kiln which hardens the paint and makes it shine. Lots of items to choose from - castles, dragons, animals, etc.
I like to check Uncrate.com, I got my dad some tools they posted. Also, any pics from your youth made into something crafty will make them cry with happiness. Try making them a custom christmas stocking with pics of you or a nice keychain with your little guy/girl pic in it.

I know it sounds cheesy, but anything handmade, or pictures is more valuable than a store bought gift. My favorite gifts from my sons are always the ones they have made themselves. Most parents end up getting the things they want/need anyways for themselves. It's the keepsakes that we really treasure. :)

anything you can make or something that reminds them of you that can be displayed somewhere. go to the pottery studio and make them a vase. Put some flowers in it.
Check out Etsy for handmade gifts that are less expensive (they are made by crafters and artisans and whatnot). I got my mom an awesome gold necklace made by a woman who does jewelry ($20) and some sweet vintage cuff links for an uncle ($5), among other things.

Something hand made by you.
If you have hand prints in plaster from 1st grade, make hand prints of now along with them. Shit like that.

Dude, they're your parents. They're going to love anything you give them as long as it's thoughtful or allows you all to spend time together.

Take them and get family portraits together - I was quoted around $45-55 bucks
