Top Ten Inexpensive Holiday 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-$30- 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.  Avengers Endgame Electronic Fist-$17.76-  For the hardcore Avengers Endgame fan, this electronic fist will let you control the universe with lights and sounds to give it a more authentic feeling.  It’s designed to fit most kids hands but doesn’t appear to fit adults so if it’s for an adult, they may need to just use it more as décor.

  3. Cell Phone Stand-$9.99- 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-$26- 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$19.99- 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.  Frozen 2 Hair Accessory Kit-$9.99- Frozen 2 is here and what better way to help the little princess in your life feel special than this hair set featuring characters from the movie. It comes with 13 hair ties- which is a nice amount since hair ties are very easy to lose and multiple other accessories to make her hair beautiful.

  7. Moodycards Mood Flip Over Messages– $10.88- 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.  Crosley CR8005 Portable 3-Speed Turntable-$99.99- Does your friend both love records but hates being forced to leave them at home? Well, you’ve solved that problem with this portable record player. It comes in a multitude of colors to choose from as well as the option of Bluetooth.  This turntable will let your friend take the party with them no matter where they want to go.

  9.    Maxi-Matic 3-In-1 Multi function Breakfast Center– $36.20-  If you know someone who is short on counter space this would make a great addition to their kitchen.  There’s a toaster oven to toast small items, a 4 cup coffeemaker, and the top can heat up bacon or cook an egg on the small heating round.  Great gift for a college student or someone who just got their first apartment.     

  10.  Oji-Emoji Premium Professional Practice Golf Balls -$19.99- For the golfter in your life who also has a sense of humor, these practice balls make a practical way to help them practice their favorite sport while also making it incredibly easy to determine which their balls when it comes time to wrangle them up. They will definitely be a conversation starter on the course.
