When you're holiday shopping with a budget of $50 or less, the key thing to remember is to indulge in little luxuries — i.e. things you might feel slightly guilty about purchasing for yourself, but wouldn't mind gifting to your loved ones. For example: Dior lipsticks ($35) or a really cute garden gnome wine stopper ($27.50). Could you live without them? Probably. But would the short-term quality of someone's life, measured in increments of holiday cheer, improve with these items? We'd say so.
