Some of us are blessed to have a big family or a large circle of friends, until it comes to the holidays. You can’t pick and chose who you gift this Christmas, but you also don’t want to scimp on the quality of the gifts. Without going broke, here are 10 different gifts that are sure to please any person, all under $30.
1. Pink Salt Plank
This hand-carved Himalayan salt platter doesn’t just look good, it makes anything from veggies to BBQ taste unreal, and is the perfect gift for an aspiring home cook.
2. Almond Joy
There are nuts — and then there are these insanely delicious, sugar-crusted crème brûlée almonds. Other irresistible flavors include black truffle.
3. Spice Kit
For the discerning diner in your life, this survival kit contains herbs and spices — even some wasabi — to help give bland food a boost. If one spice runs out, the containers are reusable and easy to refill.
4. Handsfree Charger
For your far-away FaceTime buddy, this iPhone stand will charge his phone and keep it upright. Looks great on a desk or night stand.
5. Smart Stick
Mom might not be ready to venture into the world of contouring, but she’ll be so down for this time-saving stick that works for eyes, lips and cheeks. It comes in a variety of shades, 18 to be exact.
6. Bagged Lunch
Eating “aldesko” is more stylish with a sweetly spotted insulated tote.
7. Tea Infuser
Tea enthusiasts will lose it over this loose leaf infuser, which is plated in 23-karat gold. The pyramid-shaped infuser comes with a ceramic tea tray that can even be monogrammed.
8. Statement Candles
Each of these soy wax candles is scented to evoke a special state (think peaches for Georgia or leather and cotton for Texas).
9. Trendy Tie
Get one of these silk knit ties for dad, and another for your teenage son. Its classic design makes it fancy enough for holiday occasions, but it’s still cool enough for teens to wear to school dances.
10. Scandalous Wine Glasses
You know the wine glass Olivia Pope drinks from on Scandal? It’s handled.
