Most of us must have experienced times when we are short of money, especially when there is a birthday or special occasion coming up. Such situations surely put us in a fix as we are unable to buy a good gift and actually cannot avoid giving the gift too. Here, some cheap, but good gifts can come as a savior. Most people do not like the idea of giving an inexpensive gift, however one must understand that the worth of the gift is not determined by its prize. Rather, if you present something that is not so expensive, but useful as well as thoughtful, it will be liked more by the receiver.
Personalized Coffee Mugs
A personalized coffee mug is not at all expensive. There are several ideas that you can choose when it comes to preparing this item. You can print the picture of the person, his loved one, children, etc., on the mug. Another way would be by printing a funny quote or may be the picture of his favorite soccer team. If you want to do this on your own, buy a plain coffee mug from a dollar shop and design the mug with different colored permanent markers.
If the person you want to give the gift to is a complete movie buff, there are several cool gifts related to movies. One great idea would be to get tickets of a latest action flick for him and his friends. Many theaters offer movie hampers which allows a person to watch several movies in that particular place. If you like this idea, check with various theaters and get a hamper from a place which is the cheapest. A DVD of his favorite movie will also be surely appreciated.
A music CD of his favorite songs is, I suppose, one of the cheapest gifts for men. All you have to do is to make a list of songs that the person likes and download it from the Internet.

If you are looking for some romantic gifts for men, then presenting some really romantic coupons will be a great idea.
