Affordable and Practical Gifts

When it comes to giving gifts, my husband is the most generous.  He  doesn't care about the price.  He likes name brand stuff but I am the opposite.  I am more of a practical gift giver and receiver.  I always think of what the person receiving the gift really need or what he can use instead of what he would like but don't really need.
Anyway, I don't really need a new purse but my husband found this one on sale so he got it for me on Valentine's day.  I didn't mind because I like the style and the color combination.  I could use it with a lot of clothing that I have in my closet so it's a plus point for him for choosing this.
For our son's birthday, we got him his favorite sweets.  We also got him a new bike which he can use  during the warm weather.  He was actually able to use it once this winter, we had a warmer day and he  tried riding this around the neighborhood.  We love riding bikes  as a family during summer so this is a perfect choice for his birthday.
My daughter is taking violin lessons so I thought getting her this stand is an excellent choice for one of her Christmas gifts along with the portable charger that she really wanted.  Now that she's a teen, I can't buy her anything without asking her first because she has her own preference now.  The music tripod was a surprise gift but I am glad she actually loved it.
Our son is into shoes these days so getting him a pair for Christmas was an easy  decision.  This din't cost a lot either.
The Steve Madden purse and wallet was  the gift I got from my husband last Christmas.
 For my husband's 50th birthday, I got him this set of 50-pound dumbbells.  If you are into weight lifting, you know that these ain't  cheap, every pound is a dollar worth.  I did however got a great deal with it as it was free shipping.
 Our goal is to  fill up this rack with dumbbells.  We still needs sets of 30, 35, 40, and 45 pounds.  The stand was my gift for him during Valentine's Day.  Last Christmas, I got him a weightlifting belt and some knee pads.  He uses them every time he works out at our  mini gym in the basement.  Building up our own  home gym is  a lot cheaper than  having a gym  membership.  It is convenient and we can use it for a long long time.
Gifts doesn't have to be expensive.  I firmly believe that it is the thought that counts.
