Holidays 2017: Top Picks for Gifts Under $50


Do you and your family members or friends put a limit on how much can be spent on each other for the holidays? For many, setting a price takes the pressure off of feeling obligated to spend a certain amount on someone. Agreeing to spend, say, no more than $50 per person, is a great way to keep things fair and equal across your family and friends that you typically buy gifts for. Fifty dollars is a great price range especially for those trying to keep a moderate budget for holiday spending; however, sometimes it can be hard deciding how to choose a gift under $50. This guide is dedicated to gifts under $50 and will you help select reasonably priced gifts for all of the men, women, and children in your life.

Hansel and Gretel Toy House and Storybook Playset by Storytime Toys

Perfect for any child who loves to read, imagine and create.

Oftentimes classic toys and games are overlooked in favor of toys that seem to provide some sort of “educational value” in the form of flashing lights. While gift giver intentions may be good, we prefer toys that don’t require batteries, are educational and fun! Finding this magical combo isn’t always easy, but we’ve found that toys that encourage our children to build, act, move and engage seem to have longer playtime than those that just make a lot of noise.

For example, the classic story of Hansel and Gretel has continued to entertain children for many generations. Storytime Toys brings this childhood classic to the next generation in a brand new way by providing a platform in which kids can read this classic tale; build their own “gingerbread house;” then use Hansel, Gretel and the Witch to act out the tale, play and imagine themselves as part of the story. Your kids can then turn to the back of the book to get extra creative with fun do-it-yourself projects.

Your kids will love it so much, that you’ll quickly be looking for another story to jump into!

Perfect for anyone who appreciates sustainable gifts that make the world a better place

A wallet is a classic gift. If you are giving a wallet for a gift this holiday season, consider thinking outside the box with a new company creating a new kind of wallet.

This keeps old socks out of landfills and when you use a sock with a pattern, you end up with a vibrant and unique wallet. The SHMEER wallet is slim but holds up to 20 plastic cards, or 16 plastic cards and 6 business cards. In addition to a up-cycled sock, this wallet is made with cork and organic cotton. Choose a sustainable and creative gift this year with a SHMEER wallet.
