If you’re on the hunt for an affordable birthday gift for someone special, fancy treating yourself, or want to surprise someone, finding an affordable gift has never been easier with Groupon.
Surprising someone with a gift, no matter what the occasion, can be more affordable than you think. We at Groupon have been helping thousands of people all over New Zealand save time and money when they’re on the hunt for a gift with a specific budget in mind. Whether it’s a half price holiday or country retreat, unbelievably BIG savings on your favourite electronics, or a relaxed “Treat Yourself” kind of day out, having a little luxury doesn’t have to cost a lot.
You need to know what you want first and see what’s most affordable for you…
To help make the decision process easier, it’s a good start to think of all the amazing gifts you see at Groupon as falling into one of these categories:
Local – You could be a stone’s throw away from some amazing deals nearby and never even know about it. Our local deals are the affordable way to get beauty treatments from nearby clinics, discounted meals and even practical things such as getting your car serviced (because who says a gift can’t be resourceful).
Goods – Searching high and low online for an affordable gift just got so much easier. If you’re looking for deals on the latest homeware, tech, footwear, fashion and home furnishings, check out our Brand New Arrivals section. Recently we’ve had deals on everything from sports shoes and UGGs to smartphones accessories and high-end cosmetics.
Travel – With a little bit of thought you can plan a great holiday that suits your price point, so it’s a good thing we have the best travel deals in (and outside) New Zealand. Keep an eye out for new affordable gifts that could see you jetting off for a weekend away (wine country is always a winner!) or even packing your boardies and bagging a beachside holiday for a scandalously low price.
How to find an affordable gift that someone will really like…
When looking for an affordable gift, sometimes you might have to consider your location. If you see a restaurant deal for Auckland that advertises a dinner for two, but you live in Wellington, it will be more cost effective (and sensible) to find an offer closer to home. So search for local deals in your area and we’ll tell you how far away the best deals from you are. With our huge range of gifts you might just find the perfect meal for two right around the corner.
A surprise trip would be a good gift. Where is cheap and cheerful?
Are you dreaming of getting away somewhere nice but wondering how much it will be? We do have great deals on this page right now and they update every day with new breaks all over the place. It’s the best place to be if you’re a travel buff.
Just pick the price that you’re happy with and we’ll show you great travel deals to suit. You’ll be able to get fantastic offers you won’t get elsewhere online and be surprised how affordable it can be to get away for a few days, especially if you’re treating someone else as a gift.
I want a luxury spa day, but want to do it on a budget. How can I make it affordable?
No need to bring your own cucumber slices or fluffy slippers! Here at Groupon we want to make sure the only tricky part of finding a spa should be wondering what facial treatment or foot rub you want to treat yourself to. We have great deals with spas and in Auckland and Wellington. You can see them all in our Beauty & Spas section and be sure to keep an eye out for the Instant Online Booking logo that will let you book instantly on site. It’ll help you to save time and money!
I have a very specific budget. What are the most affordable gifts at Groupon?
If you want to find the best deal possible and you’re looking for some inspiration, Groupon Goods is how you’ll find some of the most affordable gifts we have on site. It’s a great place to look if you want money off cosmetics or the latest home tech.
Do you have any local affordable gifts that are just on my doorstep?
At Groupon we have some fantastic local deals at great prices so keep an eye out for big discounts from local beauty clinics. It’s quite common to see deals such as up to 70% off on treatments like a facial and full-hour massage.
And don’t forget all the best deals we have for restaurants nearby. How does a three-Course meal with wine for two sound? Or a fancy high tea for two? We also can help you find the best deals at your favourite local restaurants too.
I love surprises. Any quirky gifts I can get on a budget?
Is there something around the house that you need and which your partner would love to be surprised with? Or what about a gift hamper full of tasty treats for your foodie friends? Or do you know someone obsessed with their pets? We’ve got them covered to with a range of pet accessories as well! Just check the sub-categories in our Goods section for all the quirky gifts you’ll ever need – at prices you’ll love!
