December 15, 2022
Christmas is almost here, and that’s our signal to warm ourselves with cosy sweaters and a piping mug of hot cocoa. But behind all the holiday cheer lies an unfortunate fact: holidays are super expensive. And that’s accounting for the décor we need to deck the halls with boughs of holly, the food we’re going to feast on, and of course, festive gifts.
Trying to stay within budget during the holidays can be a challenge, especially considering that we must keep our finances in check as we welcome the New Year. But there’s no price tag to make our loved ones happy this season. Below, we scoured some cheap gift ideas (all below AED100!) to spread the holiday delight without breaking the bank.
