You're short on cash, but that's no reason you can't give your boyfriend some small, inexpensive yet wonderful gift for his birthday, Christmas, your anniversary or other special event. Homemade gifts often speak more deeply to loved ones than gifts purchased at a store or online, so use his interests to create something he'll cherish forever.

Food Gifts

Food items are inexpensive gifts as you often do not have to leave your own kitchen to create them. Put mix for pancakes, cookies, brownies and cakes in a glass jar with a ribbon and a note that reads you will use the mix to make him these items whenever he wants. Other food gift ideas include purchasing all his favourite single-serve snack cakes, chips and similar items and placing them in a large gift basket.

Photo Gifts

Arrange favourite photos of the two of you in a medium-size frame, and add small embellishments such as small shells and beach glass from your beach trip and leaves from your favourite hiking trail. Make your own photo frame by reusing old frames and gluing items to it based on a theme, such as the beach or sporting events. Place a photo of the two of you in the frame that correlates with the frame's theme. You can also create a small scrapbook of your relationship using photos and small trinkets.

Coupon Booklets

Create a small coupon booklet for your boyfriend, and decorate each coupon differently. Ideas for coupons can include home-cooked meals, massages, watching his favourite show that you dislike for a week or two, and inexpensive outings on you, such as going to see movies he likes, trips to the batting cages and golf driving ranges or a round at the go-kart track. If you live together, some of the coupons can be for chores he normally does, such as washing the dishes, taking out the trash or scrubbing the bathroom tub.


Calenders featuring his favourite sports team or other favourite activities are always a small, cheap gift option. Take calendar gifts to the next level by having a photographer friend take photos of you in assorted lingerie as well as his favourite sports team jersey, his old army fatigues or even his favourite shirt that he enjoys having you wear. Use props such as cakes for his birthday month, and wear theme clothing for holiday months, such as sexy Halloween, Christmas and Saint Patrick's Day outfits.
