How cheap can you be? :bow:

------------> Money Spending Coffessions <----------------



ALL CHEAPSTEAKE CONFESSIONS ARE WELCOME



What was the cheapest Christmas Present you ever get~


OR-- What was the cheapest Birthday gift you ever gave~

OR-- date~

OR-- .........................


OK. OK. Here is the story~ As Christmas draws close, I spent most of my money already~yet I still have 3 presents I haven't get around~ so.... I need some suggestions here~ [size=2] I know, I know. It was the thought that counts.... but I can't give them a box of chocolate like last year X'mas, and the year before... and the ....... er.... etc. dakara. I need to get things that are cheap but It doesn't LOOK CHEAP~ other than chocolate~

p.s. please be awear that I am on a limited budget here~

p.p.s. the cholocate cost $2.99 per box. ........

Last Christmas a friend blasted me upside the head with an iced-up snowball while I wasn't looking.

I thought that was pretty cheap.

cheapest ay? well how about this, if you've got anything thats been collecting dust that you don't want anymore then you should clean it up and try and fix (if broken). Then put it in a expensive looking box and fancy ribbons (probably will cost the small budgets amount of 3 bux). Then give it to them and just make sure that they haven't seen it before because if they have then uh oh...heh

OR

draw a picture of them and use photoshop to turn it into cg art and when you give it to them they'll be like, you did this for me???? awwww thank you xoxoxo heh

happy gift hunting and hope that helps

Give Gift Cards with X amount on them.....cheap depending and on amount, and no effort on your part

I wouldn't give a gift card......just doesn't suit me.

As for cheapest present? Dunno.....didn't even happen yet. But I can say that a present I gave GOT cheap, which pissed my off. Long Story short, I bought my cousin a PC game, to only see it later at the SAME store, 1/3 less and including an expansion pack.......stupid price drops, and no i didn't get price match, dont ask why.

I've given a box of my feelings once. That was pretty cheap since I hated the person that I was giving my feelings to.

wrap a bow around yourself and do just what superchopy said, but in a really sleeezy voice and add "You've been a good boy/girl all year, but you have to be a naughty one if you want to open this present."

Oh, um, you're naked of course, and maybe covered in a whipped cream bikni.

oh, I forgot to add that you should tell your grandparents there's a time limit to the present cuz you probally wont have time to give your present to any1 else on christmas day if you dont. You know, old people are kinda fragile and you gotta take it easy with them if you dont want to break a hip.


OMg, im just

Not as cheap as mine...I gave that or...gave as much as would come out, to a family member....

Well...you can always go for the box of chocolates with a card....although you might spend a lot more then expected...it's the best i can come up with...

Oh oh OH, i know a good one. Give one of them "50 state" quarters, and say its a collector's item and 'rare'. There you go, a great gift idea and only 25cents!



edit:
Another GREAT idea. Burn custom audio cds of fav tracks. Oh my so cheap!

The cheapest present to give someone for the holidays is love.

Honestly, wtf.

"merry xmas dear, plasma screen tv"
"to you, my sweet, i give you my undying and unconditional love"
"wtf, divorce"

around 2.99 you could almost get anything on ebay, a lot of stuff starts off with .99 and end up selling for the same price, so i say just do a random search on ebay for cheap stuff and get it.


anyhow, the cheepest present i ended up giving to a bunch friends was this window breaker/life saving device, there was this advertisement that came with my credit card bill, and there was like a whole list of .99-2.99 gift boxes listed, they came in wrapped and the shipping was free. so i ended up giving out the window breaker/flash light units to my friends for X-mas, they liked it. though they did end up breaking more mirrors than car windows. but still.

Cheapest present? A handfull of pocket lint. That or a rock.

"Now I know that you like inanimate organic things, so here's a rock!"

I suppose taking a paper towel, wiping it on your monitor/desk, accumulating the dust, and saying "have a dust-encrusted paper towel! Merry Christmas!" would kind of suck, too.

go to a local party store and pick up a beanie doll. If ure giving it to another grl they wont complain. Ive given my gfs those b4 and all they said was "aww how cute" rip out the $3.99 price tag tho.

if its a guy, buy him a hot dog or a sub. Id be satisfied with that.

i got a made in china picture frame, probably from 99cents store, and cough drops from my gf for xmas. I was sick, and i love cough drops.... so i didnt say "how cheap" but yea..ppl are different.

or do wat everyone is suggesting give him/her "love" I mean dont do anything like standing naked... haha. Just a simple card tat u actually spent time writing.

OR

you can go downtown, china town, or little tokyo and get watever you want for hella cheaper.
