I feel like there are a bunch of small things that are under $50 that I always have my eye on but am not sure if I want to purchase. It might just be something that I’m hoping goes on sale soon or am holding off on buying because I can’t justify it. I mean, there’s no reason for me to own a popcorn maker but I want one. And I’m sure our friends and family feel the same way so I feel like these are usually the items that make for the best gift!

From fun kitchen gadgets to small luxury spurges, I hope this Gift Guide under $50 can give you some great ideas of what to give to your loved ones this holiday season.
