Gift Ideas For $50 or Less

Updated on September 25, 2013

Sticking To Your Budget

Gift giving for the holidays, special occasion's or birthdays do not have to be cumbersome. Giving a gift show you took some time and thought into what you gave. Gift cards are great to give in a pinch but some gift cards charge fees, or they loose value if not used by a certain time. Since many of us do not have tons of time on our hands, having some ideas will shorten the time spent gift shopping. If you have a large number of people to buy for finding gifts that are nice to give and nice on the wallet. For those with not a lot of time buying online is ideal. One reason I like Amazon is that they offer free shipping if your dollar amount exceeds $50. Here you will find gifts for $25 or less, and at the bottom of the page, gifts for $50.

Here are some ideas to stretch your dollar. Use coupons and make sure you read the fine print. If you have three coupons for a store that read "20% off one item" work the deal. I will go through and buy each item separately to save. It may be a slight inconvenience but is work it. If you have three $40 items you save $8 for going through the checkout with all your items. Do each item separately and save $24. Check out E-Bay for hard to find items, collectibles and more. How about visiting your dollars store to check out if there is anything there that would be good for a stocking stuffer. Last but not least shop after the holidays for deals on gifts for next year.
