    If You Don't Wanna Spend A Ton Of Money This Holiday Season, Here Are 24 Affordable Gift Ideas

    From $9.99 to $49.99, and not a cent more.

    1. A set of chic salad servers for the host that always does the most. Reviewers say they're the kind of utensils that never get put away because they're just so gosh darn nice to look at.

    2. A karaoke microphone that'll have them singing their heart out at their next shindig. It comes with a built-in phone stand, so they can display the lyrics to whatever tune they choose to belt out.

    3. A fanny pack that is a spitting image of lululemon's Everywhere Belt Bag. Reviewers say the pocket design, material, zipper, waist strap, and even the location of buckle are all the same.

    4. A pillar candle they'll wanna light up the next time they have people over for dinner. Its funky shape makes it nice to look at, even when it isn't lit.

    5. And a decorative candle holder they can put their fancy new candle in. It's double-sided, meaning it can fit slim tapers on one side and tea lights on the other.

    6. A pair of cow slippers to keep their feet cute 'n' cozy while they putter around the house. I mean, how adorable are they, though!?

    7. Or a pair of moccasin slippers if they'd rather wear something a little more subtle. They're lined with faux fur that'll feel as soft as clouds on their feet.

    8. An advent calendar they can open up over the six days that lead up to New Year's Eve. Packed with Sephora Collection goodies, this thing is a great way to extend that ✨holiday cheer✨ all the way to December 31st.

    9. A pair of ~luxe~ wine glasses they can use for sipping that fancy bottle of Chardonnay they've been saving. Reviewers say they're a great dupe for *those* Crate and Barrel glasses (at a fraction of the price).

    10. A hanging car trunk organizer if they're the kind of person who appreciates a practical gift. It'll turn the back of their car into a multi-pocketed storage situation for all of their roadtrip essentials, and help keep everything organized, too.

    12. A postcard painting kit they can use to illustrate personalized and thoughtful notes and cards over the holidays. They can also use it as a sketch book while they're on the go or travelling.

    13. A super cute makeup brush holder that'll keep their beauty supplies in order. Its base doubles as tray they can keep trinkets and jewellery in, too.

    14. A deck of yoga exercise cards with a whole range of poses for them to practice and learn. Each card has an illustration and description, plus a code they can scan to access an online video tutorial of each posture.

    15. An adorbs vase stand that'll give their favourite water plants and baby bouquets a place to call home. They can also use it to root plant cuttings and propagate in style.

    16. A knit scarf that'll keep their neck from freezing off this winter. I have one of my own and lemme tell you, this baby is incredibly soft and feels pretty luxurious for the price point.

    17. A 500-piece puzzle if they live and breathe The Office. It's the perfect activity to do while they rewatch their fave episodes (again).

    19. A pack of Epsom salts that'll inspire them to kick back in the tub this winter. They're made with shea butter, which they'll appreciate if they experience dry skin when the temps drop.

    20. A hardcover copy of On Boards by Lisa Dawn Bolton that's full of recipes that are meant to be shared. It'll definitely come in handy if they're planning on hosting any family gatherings this holiday season.

    21. A deck of tarot cards they can use to get a glimpse into the world of mystery, magic, and maybe some light fortune-telling. They're cat-themed, which will make 'em the perfect giftie for the feline-obsessed future-seeker in your life.

    24. And finally, a string of light-up clips that'll add a little more ~pizzazz~ to their home decor than plain ol' fairy lights. They can use them to display art prints, photos, notes — you name it.
