2022 Gift Guide: 50 Gifts under $50

From family gatherings to finding the best gift ideas for everyone on your list, the holidays can be a little stressful. Gift guides are a way to alleviate some of that stress. I’ve put together the ultimate gift guide full of some of my favorite gifts, all under $50. 

Cashmere touch screen gloves

These are a classic —complete with touch technology in the pointer fingers so you can text and take photos without removing your gloves. And there’s a matching beanie and scarf, too.

Fringed edge scarf

This scarf comes in a wide range of colors and is such a reasonable price. These scarves were produced using sustainable fibers or processes, reducing their environmental impact. 

Recycled cashmere beanie

Keep your head warm in this classic beanie, made more earth-friendly with a mix of traditional and recycled cashmere. This beanie is made of 55% recycled cashmere and 45% cashmere.

Champagne ornament

Cheers something special with this champagne ornament. 

Milk body cleanser

This hydrating body wash is made with soothing plant-based milks that gently removes visible impurities, maintaining skin’s pH for a soft, conditioned feel.

Lip elixir balm

I am a big Kypris fan, and got into the brand when a friend recommended this elixir. I now use a few products including this lip balm. 

Vanilla beauty butter

This new to me brand is one I haven’t tried yet, but the reviews are amazing, and I just ordered it. My hands get so dry in the winter, and I love vanilla, so I’ll report back. 

Jasmine body oil

My favorite body oil that I am especially diligent about using during those dry, winter months.

Body wash

This best seller is one of my favorite items. I love it this much, so it needed a spot on my list of the best gifts under $50.

Cuticle oil

I’m noticing a dry skin theme here, but my cuticles get so dry during winter, and this cuticle oil bottle is definitely gift-worthy. 

Teddy bear slippers

You might be surprised to know how hard it is to find nice slippers under $50, but I did it. 

Charging block

The perfect accessory for your home or office, this linen charging block offers wireless convenience to keep your phone fully charged all day long. It looks so lovely on a nightstand or desk, and can be monogrammed with a name or initials for a thoughtful gift for the tech lover.


This is probably on every gift guide so it’s hardly one of the most unique gifts you’ll see this year, but it’s back in stock, and I love mine. Knowing how much I love it, it would be such a great gift. It’s the best size and best water bottle out there. 

Holiday candle

Nest New York candles are the best, and the holiday candle is one of my favorites to give as a gift, and I usually snag one for myself, too.

Blended by Kat Jamieson

One of my favorite (original) bloggers, Kat Jamieson published her first book! 

Ceramic vase

I have this vase and it looks more expensive than it is. 

Royal twins

These are the perfect size for dollhouses, and for carrying everywhere. My girls cannot get enough of their Maileg mice. 


A great option for the person who has everything (and loves beautiful things).

Monogrammed cocktail napkins

These cocktail napkins might be my favorite gift here. They are beautiful, aren’t they? 

Cookie mix gift box

I love the idea of gifting an activity, or something that can be used to make memories (and something delicious). This cookie mix gift box comes with two different flavors – what a treat. 

Candy gift box

Gummy candies are my favorite. From licorice to sour candies, I love (almost) all of it, and Sockerbit is one of my favorites. 

Marble platters

All but the largest size of these platters are less than $50. 

Love & Lemons Every Day by Jeanine Donofrio

The perfect gift for the (vegetarian) home chef, or friend who needs some variety in the kitchen. 

Nutcracker puzzle

It’s that time of year, so why not give a gift that’s festive and fun? 

Snow candle

I love fragrant candles, and Diptyque is one of my favorite brands. 

Bell ornament

A classic Christmas gift. 

Linen desk agenda

Give the gift of organization with this beautiful desk agenda.

Bookshelf monopoly

A classic and fun way to give gifts – this monopoly set is quite pretty, isn’t it? 

Ruffled loaf pan

This loaf pan comes in a few different colors, and is a beautiful, elegant take on a classic loaf pan. 

Waffle maker

We have a few of these waffle makers – they’re so affordable and really take breakfast to the next level.

Olive oil

As a California girl, I can’t not recommend Brightland’s CA olive oil.

Olivewood cheese board

The perfect (tiny) little cheese board

Cheese knives

I feel like I’ve featured this time and time again, but these stainless steel cheese knives are beautiful. And bonus: they’re French!

Spritz gift set

And my favorite. I love a good spritz, and this gift set really is the perfect gift. 

Whiskey wedge glass

The perfect gift for the whiskey lover in your life. 

Bluetooth speaker

Talk about a smart speaker – this bluetooth speaker is under $50!

Monogrammed Jute Tote

The perfect tote for running errands, trips to the farmer’s market, or even keeping misc. items in your car organized. And I love that it can be monogrammed for that personal touch.

Peppermint bark

A classic, and I know peppermint is loved by some and not all, but I love Williams-Sonoma’s peppermint bark.

Hot sauce

Something spicy for your spice-loving friend or family member. 

Popper microwave bowl

How fun is this? We’ve been on a big popcorn kick, and this is more environmentally friendly than bags (healthier, too) and less high-maintenance than stovetop.

Salad servers

I’ve featured these before but they’re so beautiful and affordable, so they’re making my list again. 

More Beautiful by Mark Sikes

I love this book by one of my favorite designers. 

Margot Bracelet (my collab with Names for Good)

100% of proceeds from my Names for Good collaboration benefit childhood cancer research via Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Makes a great gift for kids (and there’s an adult version in white, too). 

Baseball hat

My kids have a few of these Rey to Z hats – they are so cute (and fun). 

Custom photo puzzle

My girls will each have one of these in their stockings, featuring their photo and favorite Disney princesses. Minted makes a bunch of different designs, and you can choose larger pieces for younger kids, or smaller, more complex puzzles for older ones. 

Kids pajamas

I’m a real sucker for anything with a tree on a car, and these are awfully cute. 

Baby sherpa booties

What’s cuter than fuzzy baby booties? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. 

Merry mouse

Have a baby or toddler to shop for? This merry little mouse is pretty cute, and under $28.

Fresh olive branches

Another great gift for the person who has everything, or something unique to bring to a holiday get-together. 

Lemon ornament

Cody Foster ornaments are fun and whimsical (and priced very well).
