If you are on a tight budget then make the presents yourself, or if you would prefer, there are many craftsmen out there specialising in handmade gifts.

Photos are inexpensive to get printed, yet contain priceless memories. Putting together an album full of fond memories, or framing one photo of a special occasion is always appreciated. Even simpler, use a treasured photo to make a birthday or occasion card with your own special wishes inside.
Make a CD for the man in your life with all his favourite soundtracks on. You could put them onto a memory stick or download them onto his mp3 player but a CD can be presented in a case with a special message on from you.
Sweaters, Cardigans, Hats, Scarves, Socks, or even Gloves, there are many items you can knit and give as a gift. Your aunts, mums, or grandmothers are bound to be able to help if you are stuck or again if you want to you can buy hand knitted garments for men in many stores.
