Gifts Under $50
During the holiday season, gift giving shouldn’t be a stressful endeavor – and it certainly shouldn’t break the bank. Sure, it’s fun and special to splurge on a close friend or loved one, but remember this: It doesn’t take a specific dollar amount to show your loved ones you’re thinking about them this holiday season. Sticking to a budget can help take the stress out of holiday shopping – especially if you find yourself shopping for a long list of people, from teachers and colleagues to best friends and family members.
Thankfully, $50 gift ideas are plentiful, and it’s easy to convey your love and enthusiasm for someone with a gift under 50 dollars. A smaller price tag doesn’t equate to poor quality or knickknacks. In fact, quite the opposite! It’s perfectly possible to find thoughtful, elevated items that keep you on budget.
When shopping for $50 gifts, think about the people on your list. What are their interests and passions? What can you look for that will be meaningful, relevant, and useful to them? Consider items that bring cheer to everyday activities or intuitively designed objects that bring a sense of refinement to the home. Below, we share a roundup of the best gifts under $50.
