Real stingy person, moi. I don't buy special compost, just ordinary stuff of my own. Putting in a few small pieces of wood cinders from the stove will keep the soil sweet. Ordinary pots with a saucer under is what I use, but of course if they are for presents you have to be on the safe side. The bulbs really have enough energy already in them so don't really need feeding but if they are to go in the garden afterwards I do feed before they are finished.
