Finding a quality gift for under $5 in 2020 is a challenge. Scratch that, it’s damn near impossible without a lot of creativity and a really good sale. But add a zero to the end of that for a $50 budget, and your options start lookin’ a lil better. The new challenge becomes narrowing your choices down to one because there are so many good finds for under fifty bucks. If you thought for a second that you had to spend an outrageous amount of money on a gift for your mom, sister, or best friend for them to like it, I’m here to prove you wrong.
Whether the person you’re shopping for loves beauty and self-care, is a foodie at heart, or is obsessed with decorating (and redecorating) their apartment, we’ve got plenty of gifts that hit this budget-friendly price point for you to choose from. And the best part? Most of them come in way under that. You’re welcome.
