It’s the most wonderful time of the year and for many of us, it’s also the most expensive. Finding a thoughtful gift can be challenging and end up hurting your wallet more than you’d like. It’s enough to fill even the most savvy shopper with dread.
This year in particular promises to present some challenges. Supply chain shortages may prevent some gifts from making it under the tree in time. Inflation continues to affect the cost of everyday items, including things you might give as gifts.
Despite all this, finding fun ideas for the best gifts and stocking stuffers for your friend or family member doesn’t have to stress you out. (Although it’s a good idea to start shopping early — if you haven’t already — to make sure the gifts you want to buy are in stock.)
Here are 50 of the best cheap gifts for $10 or less that will please even the pickiest of recipients at your next gift exchange.
Note: Prices may fluctuate.
