Holiday Season for Any Budget: 20 Gift Ideas Under 100 Bucks

The holidays are the season of giving. People enjoy showering their friends and family with meaningful gifts; however, not everyone has an unlimited budget. Luckily, it’s easy to give unto others without breaking the bank. Here are some amazing gifts that you’ll feel good about giving, no matter the size of your budget.

1. Beautiful Costume Jewelry

What do you give the woman who has everything? You can never go wrong with jewelry, and contrary to what the tabloids tell you, there’s no need to drop tons of cash on beautiful pieces. Many shops, like Adina’s Jewels, have options that are well below $100. There are tons of affordable costume jewelry options available, from dangling earrings to statement pendants. You’ll be able to cross off a few people on your list with something that really sparkles.

2. Temperature-Control Mug

Is there a coffee snob in your life? Instead of buying a bag of beans that they may turn their nose up at, get your coffee connoisseur something they can use every day. A temperature-controlled coffee mug ensures your recipient will be able to sip on hot coffee for hours on end. They’ll no longer make trips to the microwave to keep their dark roast warm. Your thoughtful gift is sure to become a favorite this year.

3. Weighted Blanket

Stress and anxiety are at an all-time high for many people. Sleep is often the first thing to suffer. Help your loved one sleep soundly with a weighted blanket. These cozy, somewhat heavy blankets envelop users and provide gentle pressure. Weighted blankets are also an excellent option for those who need additional sensory input at night. The gift of better sleep is perhaps the most relaxing present ever.

4. Art Set

Shopping for an artistic kid? They can never have too many art supplies. Try picking up an art set that contains a variety of drawing supplies, such as crayons, markers, colored pencils, and paints. Be sure to include a sketchpad or some canvases to complete the gift. Art supplies are affordable, but they’re sure to be a hit with the creatives in your life.

5. Card Games

Bring family game night to the next level with some new card games. There are tons of games available for people of all ages. If you have young kids, find a couple of child-friendly options. However, if you like to entertain a more mature crowd, look for something a bit more adult-oriented. Card games bring friends together and are a fun icebreaker at parties.

6. Wireless Earbuds

Do you know someone who listens to music around the clock? While you may not be able to pick out new tunes for them, you can support their music appreciation with a new pair of wireless earbuds. Unlike those earbuds that came with their music-playing device, newer styles ditch the cord altogether. Best of all, the high-tech earbuds are more affordable than ever.

7. Relaxing Sand Picture

Imagine being able to bring the beach to your friends. With so many of us staying home for the holidays, it’s still possible to enjoy the shore without going anywhere. A sand picture creates the soothing ambiance of falling sand that continually changes. These zen-like pictures mimic the flowing motions and earthy colors of the beach. When you can’t sit on the beach, this type of innovative, living art is the next best thing.

8. Tablet

Tablets are now accessible for budgets of any size. Many of the biggest names in electronics sell models that are well below the $100 range. They’re an ideal option for both teens and adults. Tablets let people play games, read books, and browse the internet. Most devices have an impressive battery life, so your gift recipient will be able to enjoy hours of entertainment before needing to find the charger.

9. Subscription Boxes

What’s better than the gift that keeps on giving? Subscription boxes are a unique way to give your friends an assortment of surprises throughout the year, and there are no many options out there. Beauty, lifestyle, pets, clothing, kids, and food are just some types of subscription boxes available. Whether you gift a single box or sign your friend up for an annual subscription, they’re sure to appreciate this fun gift.

10. Countertop Appliances

Is someone in your family a budding chef? You can’t go wrong with adding a few countertop appliances to their cooking arsenal. Some of the most popular options are air fryers and pressure cookers. All-in-one breakfast makers and sandwich presses are also good choices for the cook who seems to have everything. Best of all, you may be able to taste some of their homemade creations.

11. Pizza Stone

Why order delivery when you can make it at home? Encourage your friends and family to channel their pizza-making skills by gifting them a pizza stone. Unlike baking sheets, stones cook the crust more evenly, resulting in the perfect ratio of crispy and chewy. Choose from traditional clay, cast iron, or ceramic stones. There are even steel options that transfer heat even faster.

12. Portable Bluetooth Speaker

No party is complete without music. If you have a friend who loves throwing parties, you can’t go wrong with a portable Bluetooth speaker. Although compact in size, these speakers put out more than enough sound to lure party-goers on the dance floor. Waterproof models even make it possible to splash in the pool without losing any power.

13. Comfy Leggings

Does someone in your family start their day with a morning yoga session? Keep them comfortable and stylish in a new pair of leggings. Look for high-quality materials that won’t lose their shape over time. The best leggings also stay completely opaque no matter how much the wearer bends and twists.

14. Smart LED Bulbs

Got a tech-lover in your circle? Smart LED bulbs are the perfect gift. When connected to an app, users can adjust the brightness and color of their lights from anywhere. They can even set timers so that their lights come on at the same time each day.

15. Suitcase Turntable

Vinyl records are popular once again. Many people enjoy the sound of old records, but vintage players can leave behind scratches. Surprise your record collector with a suitcase turntable. These portable players make it possible to enjoy vinyl from anywhere.

16. Portable Charcoal Grill

Dads everywhere enjoy firing up the grill. A portable charcoal grill will let him whip up burgers, hot dogs, and kabobs in no time at all. Besides, all grillers know that charcoal is better than gas. The small, lightweight frame makes these grills the perfect option for camping and tailgating, too.

17. Pour-over Coffee Maker

Does your spouse enjoy a fresh cup of coffee? Get them a pour-over coffeemaker for a bold experience like no other. These devices let drinkers experience the body, flavor, and aroma of their favorite grounds.

18. Amazon Prime Subscription

What do you get the person who has everything? You give them access to even more. A subscription to Amazon Prime gives your recipient free two-day shipping on countless items. They’ll even be able to download books, videos, and songs for free.

19. Spinner Wheel Luggage

Do you have a friend who is always on vacation? Treat them to some better luggage this holiday season. Spinner wheels make maneuvering throughout the airport a breeze. They’ll never worry about missing a flight because of heavy luggage again.

20. Wine Decanter

Many people enjoy a glass of red wine before bed. Gifting the wine-connoisseur in your family a decanter is a wonderful choice. Decanters help aerate the wine, greatly improving the taste. Once they experience the difference a decanter makes, they’ll wonder how they ever sipped wine without one.
