Hanukkah is happening right now, and Christmas is not far behind. If you’re starting to panic that you won’t get your shopping done, let the product experts at Reviewed help you find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list.
We’ve spent the past three months researching which items will make the best gifts for anyone and everyone you might be shopping for. To help you shop by budget, we curated 50 of our favorite gifts at a variety of price points. If you want to browse even more ideas, don’t worry. We’ve got plenty. Let’s get started:
Gifts under $10
Whether you’re shopping on a tight budget, looking for stocking stuffers, or in need of a fun White Elephant gift, there are loads of fun buys at great prices. These are some of our favorites.
1. 5 Pairs of Comfy Socks—$8.99on Amazon
You can never go wrong with socks as a gift. Fuzzy socks are perfect for the colder months and make a great gift for anyone—yes, even kids, as long as they also get at least one toy.
2. Invisibobble—$8.99 on Amazon
This was a suggestion from a co-worker. A fashionable hair tie that can either blend in or stick out, is cheap, and will hold up is always a good thing. I’ve been told it’s great for workouts since it stays put without leaving a bump when you take it out.
3. “Of Course!” Book of Brain Teasers—$9.95 on Amazon
Some people like their Sudoku and coffee in the morning. Some like puzzles and crosswords. A brain teaser book is perfect for keeping anyone’s mind sharp, killing time while traveling, entertaining kids, or just relaxing on their own.
4.SipWell Stainless Steel Drinking Straw 4-Pack—$8.89 on Amazon
Disposable straws are so 2017. To help your friends, co-workers, and loved ones live in these more eco-conscious times, gift them a nice set of reusable straws. This set is our favorite affordable option, and it comes with a pipe cleaner so there’s no struggle to get them clean.
5. WizGear Dashboard Magnetic Car Mount—$7.99 on Amazon
Many of us use our phones for navigation. So your friends and loved ones aren’t constantly looking away from the road to get directions, give them the gift of safety with a super handy car mount. This little gadget from WizGear is magnetic and doesn’t take up too much space in the car.
6. Veggetti Vegetable Spiralizer—$9.99 on Amazon
With New Year’s just around the corner, there’s no doubt someone on your list who has already started planning out their healthy lifestyle transformation for 2019. The show support and encourage them to reach their goals, get them the best vegetable spiralizer out there. It takes up so little room and is so easy to use, they’ll be thanking you in all their transformation posts on Instagram.
7. PopSocket—$7.25 on Amazon
PopSockets have been popular for a couple years now and they serve two great purposes. They’re an extra grip on the back of your phone so you don’t drop it when FaceTiming or taking a picture, and they also serve as a great stand for lazy video viewing. They come in plenty of different designs and styles and fold right up so your phone still fits in your pocket. Easy, stylish, and practical are three great things when it comes to cheap gifts.
8. Wet n Wild Liquid Lipstick—$3.99 on Amazon
Earlier this year, we tested all the best liquid lipsticks, and despite its low price, Wet n Wild Was No. 1 by a large margin. It stayed on the longest, was easy to wash off, and didn’t leave marks anywhere. So for cheap, stylish, and strong lipstick that’s perfect for a gift, look no further.
9. 1-Year Subscription to Food Network Magazine—$10 on Amazon
Whether in print or on an e-reader or smart device, magazines are still a great go-to gift if you can pinpoint what the person likes. There are thousands of magazines from pop culture to sports, food, gardening, video games and much more. Subscriptions are typically priced like this one to Food Network magazine, and when the person gets their magazine every month or bi-monthly, they’ll always think of you.
10. Amazon Gift Card—$10 on Amazon
It may not seem like much, but an Amazon gift card gives any recipient the chance to get something fun or take a few bucks off a bigger purchase they’ve had their eye on. No one would be upset to get this as a gift. It works great for coworkers, friends, family, postal workers, teachers, you name it.
Gifts for $10-$25
This section may be best suited for relatives you won’t see in person or holiday gift exchange with friends or coworkers. Or maybe you just want one more gift to make your Christmas tree look a little more impressive.
11. Amazon Echo Dot, 2nd Gen.—$19.99 on Amazon (Save $20)
This is one of the hottest gifts of the year, if the sheer number of people buying them up on Black Friday is any evidence. It’s the most affordable Echo in Amazon’s smart speaker lineup, and it’s been on sale form its usual $40 since mid-November. It’s a no-brainer to give anyone on your list who loves tech (or just having someone at their beck and call). The upgraded Dot is also on sale for $30 and has a better speaker, but it may arrive after Christmas.
12. Hummingbird Glass Straws—$24.99 on Amazon
One of the easiest things we can do to treat our planet more responsibly is to cut down on our single-use plastics. So we set out to find the best reusable straws you can buy and found that this set of four glass straws from Hummingbird was the best bet for most people. They look great, they’re durable, and they won’t change the flavor of what you’re drinking.
13. Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker—$19.99 on Amazon
You probably have that friend who will always drink their coffee cold, no matter what the temperature is outside. Give them the gift of easy, at-home coffee with a top-quality cold brew maker. This one from Takeya is the best cold brew coffee maker we’ve ever tested and it’s less than $20. It’s easy to use and brews a full quart of concentrated cold brew coffee that can last the week.
14. Leuchtturm Hardcover Bullet Journal—$19.95 on Amazon
If one of your loved ones is constant posting photos of their bullet journal online or always talks about wanting to start one, this journal is the favorite among us bullet journalers (I have one in magenta). The pages are good quality, the book is sturdy, and it’s even got an index and page numbers already in it. Plus, you can choose from lots of bright and fun colors. Any bullet journaler, doodler, note-jotter, list maker, or aspiring writer would be thrilled to unwrap this gift.
15. InnoGear 2nd Version Essential Oil Diffuser—$15.99 on Amazon
When we were testing and photographing several of the best essential oil diffusers on the market, our office smelled awesome.
If the person you’re shopping for enjoys creating calming, relaxing atmospheres at home, there’s a good chance they’ll love the gentle bubbling of an essential oil diffuser.
16. MistoBox 1-Month Coffee Gift Subscription—$20 from MistoBox
One of our testers put his caffeine tolerance to the test earlier this year when he tried seven (yes, seven) online coffee subscriptions. When all was said and done, MistoBox topped our list. We loved the efficiency of MistoBox’s website, its blazingly fast shipments, and the responsive customer support he encountered throughout the process.
17. Samsung Fast Wireless Charging Pad—$23.50 on Amazon
If you’ve got a giftee who’s constantly using (and charging) their smartphone, the Samsung Fast Wireless Charging Pad is a great stocking stuffer (and our favorite wireless charger). Compatible with Samsung Galaxy phones, as well as the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, and XS, and any Qi-rated smartphone, this fast charging pad will juice your handheld back up to full without the need to plug the phone into an AC outlet or USB port.
The best thing about a pad like this is that you can continue easily using your phone, picking it back up to text or take calls, and simply setting it back on the charging pad when you’re not using it. It’s a much more convenient solution than having to plug your phone into a cable whenever you need to charge it, and it’s pretty affordable to boot.
18. AmazonBasics Pop Up Goal—$18.09 on Amazon
If your kid is into backyard sports, you’ll definitely want to check out these pop-up nets on Amazon. Whether you’re just kicking a ball around the yard or making up your own game, this will let you set up goals just about anywhere. Setup is super easy and requires zero tools. All you have to do is give it a twist and you’re good to go.
19. Zojirushi 16-oz. Travel Mug—$23.99 on Amazon
Earlier this year, we threw a handful of the most popular travel mugs in a good ol’ fashioned cage match. When the dust settled, this stainless steel mug from Zojirushi emerged as the champion on our list of the best travel mugs you can buy.
We love how easy the Zojirushi mug is to use, and its temperature-retention abilities absolutely floored our tester. The Zojirushi is available in a ridiculous amount of colors, too—perfect for the person in your life who’s always on the move.
20. LuxFit Premium High Density Foam Roller—$23.95 on Amazon
Being an athlete comes with plenty of aches and pains. Instead of shelling out cash for a one-time massage, get the fitness fanatic in your life our favorite foam roller. It’s like having a masseuse constantly available in the living room, plus, they’ll finally stop asking you to rub their back “for just five minutes.”
Gifts for $25-$50
This, to me, is the sweet spot for most of the people on your shopping list. You can’t go overboard for everyone, but you can still dazzle and impress for less. These are some great mid-range options for everyone from kids to parents.
21. Cream of the Crop Royal Riviera Pears—$36.99 from Harry & David
If you’re the type of person who just read that and thought to themselves, “Fruit? As a gift? Really?” then clearly you haven’t experienced a Harry & David Royal Riviera pear.
Here’s what you need to know: These are life-changing pears. They’ll ruin pears for you. You’re not just buying someone pears, you’re robbing them of their ability to enjoy normal pears forever. After you eat one of these, every single firm, mealy, garden-variety grocery store pear will crush you with disappointment.
22. Grooming Essentials For Him—$30 at Ulta
It’s 2018, and we should know (or at least have a hunch) that skincare and self-care are not just for women. Gently let your dude friends know that it’s time to start (or continue!) moisturizing and grooming.
Ulta’s Grooming Essentials For Him ($30) is a great pick to cover all the bases. It features a variety of cleansers, shaving creams, and moisturizers by favorite brands including Jack Black, Clinique, Mario Badescu, and David Beckham. For the sensitive-skinned man on your list, a set of gentle skincare by Kiehl’s ($49) is also great.
23. SterlingPro Double Wall French Press—$29.95 on Amazon
If you’re buying for someone who really loves coffee, the Sterling Double Wall French Press is perfect. It is double insulated so it keeps coffee nice and hot, it looks fantastic, it works for everything from frothed milk to hot chocolate, it’s dishwasher safe, and it’s the best French press we’ve ever tested. Best of all, it’s about a third the price of many other stainless steel French presses, meaning it’ll feel like your gift cost way more than it actually does.
24. Ninja Nutri Edge Pro Personal Blender—$49.99 on Amazon
We all know someone planning to get a jump-start on their health goals in the new year, and this blender is for them. With a powerful, 900-watt motor packed into a compact machine, Ninja’s pro-style personal blender can whip up any smoothie or health shake in seconds—or maybe an icy cocktail, if it’s been a long day. I’ve been using mine for a year and love it.
If you’re gifting to a couple or family, you may want to go with a full-sized machine like Breville Boss Blender, our favorite pro-style blender on the market…..Read More>>>
