As we've been making our way down the price spectrum of holiday gifting, we've now reached the under $50 category -- and just in time, really. But don't make the mistake of thinking that this is the "cheapie" section. There are multiple, thoughtful reasons behind the affordable present and it's not just because you're this close to reaching your credit card limit.
First off, you probably have quite a few BFFs for whom you'd like to show some appreciation. Because, in the wise words of Dr. Mindy Lahiri, "Best friend isn't a person Danny, it's a tier." (And you want those pressies to be just as impactful as a Neiman Marcus quadski.) Or perhaps you just started dating a new guy and it's a tad early for an extravagant or overly personal gift right now. (The holidays are a delicate time for dating as it is.) There's, of course, the office gift exchange, for which you can't be overly familiar, but you don't want to be lame, either. Finally, there's the White Elephant scenario with friends and/or family -- and let's be honest, there's something really gratifying when everyone wants to steal the super rad gift you brought to the party.
So click through the galleries below for fun, unique and thoughtful gifts that won't break your budget, but might totally seem they did. (We won't tell.)
