Top 10 Holiday Gifts Under $50


Buying Christmas presents doesn't always have to break the bank! Join WatchMojo.com as we count down our picks for the Top 10 Holiday Gifts Under $50!

For this list, we’ve looked at the best gifts available on a modest budget. These are the stocking stuffers that’ll leave their recipients smiling widest. Note, of course, that the prices are always subject to change, based on the season, your location, shipping and availability.

#10: Paladone Pac-Man Ghost Light

Geek chic rocks, no matter what price tag it carries! This Pac-Man light is the perfect gift for the retro gamer, or for anyone who simply likes to cover his or her life with cool things. Set it to standard mode and watch it phase through 16 different colours on a loop. Or switch to party mode, and have yourself a nerdy disco as it changes to the rhythm of the music. Or, buy two or three of these things and chase your friends around the living room, pretending Pac-Man is a real sport. Your choice.

#9: Leatherman 830846 Skeletool Multitool

Our next gift is a little more aimed at adults, and the ‘Do it Yourself’ odd-jobber in particular. Leatherman’s Skeletool Multitool is a 7-piece instrument, which includes a combo blade, pliers, and a bottle opener – among other things – as well as a removable pocket clip for easy attachment! All of that and it weighs just 5 ounces – making it the lightest on the market! In terms of good, cheapgifts, this thing hits the nail on the head – quite literally. It’s a toolbox in your back pocket.

#8: Birchbox: Monthly Subscriptions

Christmas gift giving is all about surprises, but why let the surprises stop onChristmas Day itself? With a Birchbox subscription – yours for just $10 a month – you’re extending the fun beyond just the festive period. A hand picked selection of five beauty items will be delivered to your recipient’s doorstep, potentially brightening up those post-Christmas blues in January, February, March and beyond. Birchbox brands itself as ‘a better way to beautiful’, but it’s also an affordable way to awesome.

#7: Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480

Tech gadgets are an automatic go-to for the modern gift-buyer, but they’re not always available for affordable sums of money. However, the Logitech wireless keyboard is one way to wow your friends or family members, without laying waste to your overdraft! It’s a type-on-anything, universal product, switchable between a PC, a tablet and a smart phone all at the same time, and it’s also compatible with both Windows and Mac. It’s a no strings attached, and no wires necessary, bargain.

#6: Pandora Symbol of Love Bracelet, Clear CZ

Probably the most feminine under-$50 to feature today, the Pandora ‘Symbol of Love’ Bracelet could be ideal for many a female loved one. It can be worn on its own, or as part of the traditional-style Pandora approach, in which bead-style charms are collected together. A sterling silver chain and simple heart detail, it’s a fairly safe bet for the jewellery lover in your life, but carries enough character and reputation to stand out from other competitors on the market.

#5: Harry D. Koenig & Co. 4-Piece Shave Set in Silver for Men

Men are usually bombarded with shaving products at Christmas, usually enough to see them through until at least the summer. But this Harry D. Koening set is a cut above the typical trimmer. The razor, bowl, soap and brush come with a stylish stand, making this a shave-set worth proudly displaying in any bathroom. You might even include some Sandalwood Shaving Cream by Taylor of Old Bond Street if you’re feeling extra generous. At $17, you won’t find a nicer smelling stocking stuffer.

#4: Sedum Terrarium

Do you know a budding environmentalist who’s tied down to their desk all day? If so, then Sedum Terrarium is exactly the gift you require! An ecosystem in a bottle, it’s the perfect office accessory for anyone who wishes they could work outside, but doesn’t. Mix seeds with a soil-like substance, decorate with pebbles, water occasionally, and then sit back, relax and watch your handheld garden flourish. It’s the gift that keeps on growing.

#3: Menu Winebreather Carafe

Alcohol-inspired gadgets go down well at any party, especially aroundChristmas! For just a tipple over $40, the Winebreather Carafe is a must have for all Merlot, Shiraz or Chardonnay enthusiasts. A stylish secondary vessel for your vino, it aerates a bottle of wine in seconds, and then can be used as a decanter for serving if necessary. Customer reviews consistently comment on the noticeable change that it inspires in the wine, bringing out a better taste on almost every occasion. We’ll drink to that!

#2: DKnight Magicbox Ultra-Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

The modern market is awash with wireless Bluetooth speakers, but the DKnight Magicbox is one of the best out there, and it’s available for a price that’s hard to beat. For under $30, you get Bluetooth 3.0 technology, an 8-10 hour battery life, and a speaker strong enough to fill a room. The portability of this gift is one of its major plus points, making it ideal for an indoor occasion or an outdoor event. Just imagine how good Mariah Carey’s gonna sound on this, when you’re all sat down for Christmas dinner.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Grateful Gnome Bird Feeder
- Kikkerland Design Putter Cup Golf Mug
- Boxing Gloves Oven Mitt Set
- UncommonGoods Birdie Yarn Bowl
- Rejuvelle Bath Bombs Gift Set
- Our Own Candle Company ‘Smell My Nuts’ Scented 13oz Mason Jar Candle

#1: Corkcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller

If there’s one thing that’ll ruin Christmas, it’s a warm beer. But deal with that disappointment no more, thanks to the smart and simple Corkcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller. The Chillsner is a kind of slurpy straw for adults, with the added bonus that it can be frozen beforehand. Once inserted into your favourite beverage, it maintains an optimum temperature until that beverage is no more. Warm beer is enough to send Santa back up the chimney, but give this gift thisChristmas and he’ll be even merrier than usual!
