How to buy a unique birthday gift for 30 dollars or less

Whether you’re looking for a birthday gift for your girlfriend, colleague, sibling, or mum, it can be tough to find something unique on a budget.

However, there are so many awesome gifts and products out there for you to choose from.

To give you a hand and take the stress out of buying for a girl on her birthday, we’ve put together a few great gift options for you below…

Perfume Set

Chanel said that women who do not use perfume have no future.

Sure, sounds harsh, but perfume can represent the overall style of a person, and a nice scent can change the way a woman feels, giving her confidence and helping her be her best.

One great gift idea for your loved one would be the Victoria’s Secret Solid Fragrance Crayons Set, with a little plastic envelope with the words ‘scent with love’ emblazoned on the front.

This gift contains six sold perfumes that are crayon-like, so your girlfriend or partner can put one in her handbag and apply when she wants to smell great – and at just $23.99 on Amazon, you cannot go wrong!


If your partner loves to travel, enjoys fashion and takes selfies all day long, then another birthday gift idea is a pair of SojoS sunglasses.

These stunning sunglasses are fashionable, protect eyes, and look great with virtually any outfit – you can’t go wrong!

What’s more, you can find discounts and coupons on the website to save a few extra dollars, meaning you could get two pairs of sunglasses for your $30 budget – bound to put a smile on her face and give her a few options when she wants to head out on a warm sunny day. The perfect gift!


Another sensible gift idea to give to your loved one is a makeup set.

Ask her about some of her favorite brands, or buy from popular makeup manufacturers such as Estee Lauder, NARS, CHANEL, Clarins, Urban Decay, MAC, Lancome or NYX.

It’s easy to get carried away and spend a small fortune when you’re looking for cheap makeup online, but the best way to present some new makeup is through a gift set.

This SHANY Glamour Girl Makeup Kit ($17.95), for example, contains 48 eyeshadows, four blushes, and 6 lip glosses – lots of makeup that will take your girlfriend or loved one from the winter through to the summer!

Bath Bombs

After a hard day at college or in the office, there’s nothing better than drawing a warm bath to relax and unwind – even more so if you’ve got a bath bomb!

Fizzing, releasing intoxicating smells, bath bombs have been popular for a number of years, and they’re a real treat. This LifeAround2Angels Bath Bombs Gift Set ($26.80) would make for a brilliant birthday present, as it contains 12 bath bombs that have been individually wrapped to protect their fragrance.

There you have it – a few awesome gift ideas to consider for your loved one. Do let us know which you choose on Twitter using @Fuzzable, and check for more gift guides soon!
