I have a lot of male and female friends. Recently I’ve bought beautiful but inexpensive things which I’ve found at cheap Asian stores, like a cute gold plated mug, or at discount stores, like a dolphin paperweight, for $7.00; for birthdays for my casual friends. To save money, because I used to spend too much and I am poor. Is it okay to keep looking for bargains?
Why not ? It is not supposed to be how much the gift costs. Hopefully you do not judge your friends by the price tag on their gifts, and they should not judge you.
There’s a difference between bargain hunting and tacky gifts.
Let’s say a friend really likes video games so you got him god of war for $10. That’s bargain hunting.
Let’s say you got him some god of war stickers for 10, that’s a tacky gift.
