Top Ten Inexpensive Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas or Hanukah gifts can be hard to buy especially when you don’t know the person very well or can’t afford to spend very much on their present. The following are thoughtful but still inexpensive gifts to give everyone on your gift-buying list.

  1.   The Home T Iowa Home Shirt I personally own the t-shirt and the sweatshirt from this company and have given the t-shirts as gifts. The fabric is exceptionally soft and it’s very well made.  The company donates a minimum of 10% to Multiple Sclerosis research so you know with each product you buy here that you’re helping find a cure for this horrible disease.

  2.  Yoga Joes Green Army Men Toys  These would make a great stocking stuffer or small gift for someone in your life who enjoys yoga or the iconic green Army men toys.  Perfect addition to any work desk to help stressed out employees remember to take some time to meditate.

  3. Cell Phone Stand If your friend or family member has a bad habit of either losing their cell phones often or can’t seem to ever charge their phones, this stand will help them with both problems. This will look good on your countertop or desk and makes it easy to see any incoming messages without frantically searching for your phone.

  4. Wine Chilling Carafe Be sure to gift a bottle of their favorite wine to go with this wine chilling carafe especially if you’re in need of a host/hostess gift. It will keep wine chilled for up to 90 minutes without effecting the taste and is dish washer safe.

  5. Iowa Shaped Bamboo Cutting & Serving Board– You can get this in any state in the United States but if you have someone who is especially proud of being an Iowan, this is an awesome gift that they’ll be sure to use on a daily basis. Bamboo is the most renewable resource in the world so you’ll know your gift is good for the environment as well as durable.

  6. Camera Lens Travel ThermosA great gift for the photographer in your life who also happens to want to take their coffee on the go. Made to look like a realistic Canon SLR lens, this mug will keep their coffee warm while they go out on their photography sessions.

  7. Moodycards Mood Flip Over Messages Do you know someone who has trouble expressing themselves at work but still wants others to have an insight into their current mood? These flip over messages will tell their co-workers exactly what’s on their mind especially if they utilize the blank page to write whatever they want with the included erasable marker.

  8. Stoneware Berry Baskets For the Farmer’s Market fans in your life, these baskets are a more elegant way to display their berries and will probably encourage their family members to eat the fruit much faster than if left in their original packaging.  Great way to store small trinkets like jewelry or paper clips too.

  9.             Perfect Day Sky Umbrella This umbrella may be more on the practical side but it’s sure to bring a little bit of joy to the person you gift it to every time they have to use it. Built with an automatic open and made with a durable wooden handle.

  10. Holiday Dog BasketFor the person who is hard to buy for and happens to love their dogs more than most people, this dog gift basket comes with a bag of treats, rawhide chews and many other dog oriented treats.
