The Christmas season holds a special place in my heart, brimming with generosity, happiness, and the desire to bring joy to children and those young at heart.

Although the spirit of giving is boundless, the constraints of our budgets frequently set limitations. The pressure to discover the ideal gift can be overwhelming, especially when our wallets are a bit leaner than we’d like. Nonetheless, the genuine magic of Christmas isn’t in the price tag. Its magic dwells in the thought and love behind the gift.

On that note, here are 5 Affordable Gift Ideas for Christmas 2023:


Starbucks presents perfect, budget-friendly Christmas gift ideas with their delightful Blissful Homecoming Collection. Drawing inspiration from vintage book cover illustrations and the heartwarming tale of Santa and his little companions, this collection is a wonderful way to kickstart the festive season. With a charming design featuring gold accents and classic holiday colors like red, green, and blue, the Blissful Homecoming Collection offers an array of drinkware, including mugs, cold cups, and tumblers.

Standouts in their holiday collection include the affordable Starbucks Holiday Red Cup Ornament (i.e., S$7.90, previously S$15.90), Starbucks Welcome to the Holiday Home Tumbler 16oz (i.e., S$21.60, previously S$30.90), and Starbucks Little Holiday Friends Water Bottle 18oz (i.e., S$14.90, previously S$29.90).

Whether you’re creating a revitalizing solo bath time or a romantic couple’s spa, Lush has you covered with their charming bath bombs. Festive delights come in cute designs like reindeer, penguins, and magical Santa shapes. Christmas-themed products start at S$13. Personally, I recommend the candy cane and snow bear bath bombs.

Lush provides a fantastic alternative to bath bombs with their shower gel series, featuring fragrances like Berry Berry Christmas and Snow Fairy.


Who can resist the aroma of freshly baked Famous Amos cookies wafting through the air? It’s a foolproof choice that will delight any recipient. I even take a whiff whenever I pass by the store!

The well-loved cookie brand has once again come up with a series of Christmas gift tins and boxes, all bearing cute designs featuring snowmen, reindeers, and other festive motifs. Some of the tins even come shaped like gingerbread men, stars, and Christmas trees. Select from a variety of flavors, including but not limited to original chocolate chip, butterscotch chip and pecan, and white chocolate chip.

Christmas Gift Tins from an affordable S$13.30. Check out the full collection and make your purchase here or via their 15 outlets island-wide.


Everyone needs bath and body care products – after all, you do need to shower at some point – and you can’t go wrong with the pretty, practical sets from The Body Shop. While toiletries might seem like a common gift, the plethora of scent choices, item combinations, and different types of packaging available here allow you to thoughtfully choose something that’s best suited to your giftee’s personality and preferences.

A simple body care gift set comprising shower cream and body butter starts from a wallet-friendly S$16, while bigger pouch sets with additional items like hand cream and festive fragrances can go up to around S$100. Individual Christmas gifts start at S$10, and I have my eye on the S$15 Cherries & Cheer Shower Gel 250ml.
