The Ultimate Under $50 Holiday Gift Guide

We offer up some under $50 Holiday gift guidance.

The season of gift giving is finally upon us! For the next seven weeks, crowds will be pouring into decorated shopping centers and intensely browsing websites to cross off the wish lists of friends and family members. It is the most wonderful time of the year, indeed! If you consider yourself a professional gift giver, the holidays are your jam. But if you are like me and have trouble finding those perfect gifts for your loved ones, (don’t fret!) I created a guide to help inspire you to form some ideas. And – get this – they are all under $50!

1. PopSocket

Get a grip! On your phone that is. Anyone else constantly dropping their phone? Enter PopSocket. These things are great for holding onto your phone (especially when taking selfies!) and for propping your phone or tablet up to be completely hands-free.
