    49 Inexpensive Gifts You'll Probably Want To Buy Two Of

    Everything's $20 and under, so you might as well add *two* to cart.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!)

    1. A deck of The Golden Girls playing cards; each of our favorite ladies has her own suit (Blanche is hearts, DUH!) to give your next game night a little extra pizazz.

    The deck of cards with illustrations of all the Golden Girls on the back

    Stan is one of the jokers, too!

    Get them from Amazon for $11.79.

    Promising review: "These are exquisite! The care and thought that clearly went in to designing them is just so so wonderful to see. I wasn't expecting them to be very good quality and just decided to purchase as a little novelty item for my Golden Girls collection. But wow! The cards feel really good in hand. I can't convey just how happy I am with this deck of cards. They are beautiful and I love them. The Joker card was a funny surprise." —Angela

    2. A Dash mini waffle maker in a favorite color so you can enjoy all the perks of a brunch out in the comfort of your own home. Now you & your bestie can make waffles, Facetime each other and gab — without having to put on real pants or go outside.

    The mini waffle maker in blue

    You can even make it a DIY gift set by adding in a waffle mix. I'd recommend my personal favorite, Birch Benders buttermilk pancake and waffle mix — just need add water and oil (aka you don't need to have eggs in the house!).

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in eight colors, plus heart-shape, skull, pineapple, and pumpkin-shape waffle makers).

    Promising review: "Definitely one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon so far. Just as described, it is a mini waffle-maker. Because of its size, it works quicker than a normal-sized one so even though you can only make one small waffle at a time, each waffle should be done in about a minute or two. The interior is also non-stick so it is really easy to clean, which was a huge bonus for me. On top of that, it comes with a little instruction pamphlet that tells you how to use it and and includes recipes and recipe ideas! Personally, I love it; it’s what I wanted and more." —Cristal M.

    3. A 2021 Jeopardy desk calendar for the trivia buff who wants to prepare for their eventual game show domination. Each day has a different question and wager amount, so you can keep track of your ~score~ throughout the year.

    Two examples of pages from the 2020 versino with the question, date, category (art and astronomy in the examples), and dollar amount of the wager

    And you're going to want to buy it for decades to come — according to an Amazon question answerer, "I cannot tell you exactly how many years we’ve been using/enjoying this calendar—perhaps 30—and don’t recall any repeats."

    I've already ordered mine — I bought the 2019 and 2020 versions and L O V E D them all year long! Check out my review for more info.

The picture of puppy Sophia Loren came out perfect on the socks. Creating doggie socks will now be the gift I give everyone who has a dog!" —Kathy Posner

    Promising review: "I hesitated to order these earmuff headphones because of mixed reviews, but I figured if nothing else, they would be good earmuffs, and they are. Not too tight, not too lose. They also produce pretty great sound to accompany me on winter walks. I mostly listen to podcasts and the quality is perfect. It wouldn’t be the highest fidelity for music, as it is a tiny bit muffled." —A. Jones

    19. A ~beary~ smart portable pack of soap sheets, because when public bathrooms run out of hand soap (especially in times like ::gestures around::) that is *not* a good feeling. We love a cute *and* practical gift.

We liked our first order so much that we bought 10 packs for my fiancé's work crew to help make keeping their hands clean during this pandemic! ( he’s a delivery driver/repair tech). If you have wanted to try something like this product, I highly recommend this brand!" —Clippin4you

    The mincer that looks like Dracula (just twist the head to mince) with garlic bread

    Brought to you in part by my current Vampire Diaries rewatch.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook--she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively — but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer — Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift. I'm pretty sure she likes it better than other gifts I've gotten her which were more expensive/thought out, and I'm fairly certain it's what took me from "good friend" to "best friend," but it be that way sometimes.Anyway, definitely recommended for people who cook with garlic and have a sense of humor." —L

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing and I’d give it 20 stars If I could!! You will NOT be disappointed! My phone was at 48%, I plugged this in, and in 45 minutes it was up to 100% with plenty of charge left in the charger bank!! I plug it in at night after I use it and it’s fully recharged in a couple of hours — and it has awesome light to show you how much it’s charged. It’s flat and fits in my purse or pool bag perfectly. The quality is fantastic and better than any other bank I’ve owned!!" —shayk

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "The speaker is very cute. A perfect little speaker. This is exactly why you will get surprised how good this little guy sounds. The bass is very deep for the size of the speaker, yet the bass does not overwhelm the treble, so the speaker sounds clear. The sound this small speaker puts out truly is amazing. It charges quickly and with Bluetooth tech it is truly portable. A rich full sound, totally satisfied. I LOVE THE COLOR!!Highly recommended." —jingyuan jiang

    25. A pack of generous-sounding ceramic coasters for anyone who appreciates a good pun *and* keeping their precious furniture safe from water marks — these bbs are absorbent to catch any condensation.

    The four coasters, two stripe and two dotted that each say "drinks on me"

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $10.99.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 34 colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. I needed a new travel wallet, and this holds everything I need all in one place, and it still closes nicely and stays flat! Boarding pass, passport, ID and credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, etc! Yet it doesn’t bulk up or look like an overstuffed mess. Just amazing. The description says it only holds US money, but I just used the boarding pass flap to hold all my Japanese Yen (¥), which are larger. I didn’t use the zippered pocket for coins as I much prefer a separate coin purse for that sort of thing. I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot!" —Anthony Luu

    28. A pair of hairy-good slippers you're basically contractually obligated to wear while binge watching the whole extended edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Promising review: "Delish! We had a bourbon that we weren't crazy about, so we decided to infuse it with this, what a difference. Completely turned the bourbon from one we kept at the back of our liquor cabinet to one we finished off within days after the infusion was done. We liked that the kit didn't make it too sweet. Really nice balance of flavors. Will definitely get again!" —Colleen Olfenbuttel

The bourbon drinkers around here are very pleased with the water melt ratio in this glass and we have since ordered three more to add to our first purchase! Highly recommend!!" —Haley E.

I rarely review anything, but this deserved a review." —Chandra

    The black mask that says "sorry I'm late. I was in glam" over a photo of Dorit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

    Get it from Gold Half Moon Co. on Etsy for $16.99.

    45. A pair of cushiony inserts that'll transform any pair of shoes into Uggs.

    The fluffy cream insoles

    Get them from Amazon for $19.95 (available in women's sizes 5–12 and in men's sizes 7–15 for $19.95, listed separately).

    Promising review: "Move from slippers to loafers to boots — I cannot be without. Just bought a second pair and will probably get a third pair. I use them in my Ara loafers & sneakers, my well-worn UGG slippers and boots, anytime I want to feel dreamy, soft comfort. They can be trimmed if needed, you know; and you can remove the existing insole to use as a pattern." —Frozenaddict

    46. A throwback-style '90s marble print Caboodle to *finally* organize all those beauty products — and do touchups, thanks to the built-in mirror.


    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Look, I wanted the pink one with every fiber of my being but this purple marble is exactly what I had in 1993. I love this something fierce. It is every bit as glorious as I remember it. All of my girlfriends are getting one for Christmas. Pro tip: you could even hide a liquor bottle in the bottom of the trays and no one would be the wiser. The only bad thing about this is that they call the line 'vintage,' which makes me feel like I have a case of the olds and I’m only 37." —Suzy Goodwin

    47. A mega-lengthening Vivienne Sabo mascara for your makeup-enthused friend — but also one for yourself, because their lashes can*not* look better than yours. Not fair.

    It's cruelty-free, smudge-proof, and removes easily at the end of the day with water.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all, and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!" —Sophie Johnson

    48. A cashmere-esque blanket scarf that'll basically be like giving the gift of the coziest warmest hug — but this'll last longer and won't make your arms fall asleep.

    Model in the cream colored scarf with fringe

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 14 colors).

    Promising review: "Extremely impressed with the high quality and great price of this scarf. DOES NOT look cheap...I own an Acne Studios wool scarf ($250 retail) and would say while this one is a bit lighter weight (still super warm and cozy) it is comparable in style, color and quality to my Acne scarf. Would definitely buy again—both for myself and as a gift." —Natalie

    49. Travel Listography, a journal designed in lists so any experienced wanderer or wanderlust-filled beginner can create bucket lists, document the places they've been and want to go, etc., and look back on it in the years to come.
