Holiday Gift Guide: Best Gifts Under $50 for 2018

The holiday season is upon us: let the gift giving commence! Finding quality gifts that don’t cost a fortune can be a challenge, but the good news is, I’ve done the legwork for you this year.

Here are my favorite gifts of 2018, all for $50 or less – I’ll drink to that!

Hair-O-Scopes Briogeo Bestsellers Set ~ $40

Briogeo haircare line is my latest obsession! I’ve loved everything I’ve used from them thus far.

This is a 4-piece set of bestsellers (deep conditioning mask, coconut oil exfoliating shampoo, heat protectant creme and reparative leave-in conditioning spray) that’s perfect for a lady in your life who needs some hair inspiration.

Progressive Internation Onion, Tomato and Avocado Keepers 3 Piece Set ~ $18

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve jammed a half of a tomato in the veggie drawer or let an avocado go brown (they’re expensive!)… I’d be a wealthy woman. If you’re like me, this set is the answer to all our produce-related prayers!

gifts under $50

Old Navy Flannel Blanket Scarf for Women ~ $22

So many fun plaids to choose from – and the price can’t be beat!

gifts under $50

Marble Butter Keeper ~ $22

Let’s face it: no one wants to spread cold butter on their toast! I purchased a butter keeper for my MIL a few years ago, and she still raves about it. This marble butter container will keep your butter fresh, cool, and spreadable for up to 20 days outside of your fridge (the french way!).

Ugg Fleece Lined Socks ~ $49

Fleece on the inside: yes please! These socks come in a few different colors and are the perfect way to keep your toes cozy this winter. Perfect for Secret Santa because they’re one size fits all.

gifts under $50

Emile Henry Pizza Stone ~ $50

I’ve been lusting after this highly-rated pizza stone for a while. It’s a great price, weighs less than most on the market, and has handles (why don’t they all have these?!).

gifts under $50

The Original Bear Paws Shredder Claws ~ $13

This also appears on our Best Gifts for Men post… For the man who loves his meat, I bring you my favorite gift of the year: Bear Claws. Use these puppies to lift awkward chunks of meat, shred BBQ, pulled pork, etc., and handle very hot pans. I gave these to my hubs for Father’s Day and he uses them all the time.

Royal Craft Luxury Bathtub Caddy Tray ~ $39

As a parent, sometimes the only escape you have is that post-bedtime bath. I can see enjoying this caddy with a cup of evening tea and a good book. Don’t forget the candles!

Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life ~ $14

I’ve been following Cleo Wade’s (the Millennial’s Oprah) Instagram for a few months now. I always feel more hopeful and uplifted after reading her thoughts and poetic wisdom.

gifts under $50

Free People Skyline Faux Fur Pom Beanie ~ $48

This beautiful cap from Free People has the homemade look of a cable-knit beanie and a gorgeous faux fur pom – comes in a variety of cute colors.

Gifts Under $50

The MakeUp Eraser Original ~ $20

I cannot live without this thing. The Makeup Eraser removes 100% of your makeup with JUST water – even that stubborn waterproof mascara.

16oz Monogram Stoneware Mug ~ $5

Add an edible treat, like chocolates, coffee, etc., to a monogrammed mug, and you’ve got yourself an Instagam-worthy gift 😎 Perfect for the special co-workers in your life (or your boss!).

gifts under $50

Zyllion Back and Neck Massager ~ $49

Look at the ratings on this thing! This is perfect for that someone in your life who always seems to be in pain. The powerful 3-dimensional deep-kneading massage nodes relax overused and tight muscles with an advanced heating function.

gifts under $50

Ok folks, that’s all she wrote. I hope you found some inspiration for all those cousins, friends and co-workers. Happy holidays!
