You no doubt have lots of ladies on your gift list this year so you're looking for inexpensive gift ideas for women that won't break the bank, but that will be treasured all year long. Luckily, it doesn't have to cost a lot to give everyone a lovely gift without going broke. There are so many ideas to choose from! Here are some of the best inexpensive gift ideas for women.
1 Something to Wear - $21 - $30
I love getting one-of-a-kind pieces for gifts. It really tells the person you’re buying them for that they’re special and unique! And it's not hard to find a good deal on handmade jewelry. It's definitely one of my favorite inexpensive gift ideas for women.
2 Something to Drink - $10 - $45
Who doesn’t love a nice bottle of wine? And it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Get to know the owner of your local wine shop really well. Not only will he be more than willing to give you suggestions, but you may end up bagging a deal or two.

3 Something to Read - $12 - $22
I read all the time, so I love getting a book as a gift! Plus, books are great because you can get a current bestselling paperback for under $20. Of course, make sure the person you’re planning to gift this to loves to read. Secondly, make an effort to find out what kind of books she enjoys and choose one that fits. If chick lit is her thing, I’d recommend anything by Jen Lancaster or, of course, the Fifty Shades of Grey series. You can also find some great ideas here:
