Most of these games are in the $25–35 price range, so you can easily afford to buy them regardless of your budget.
2. Retro Toys
While gifts such as holiday gift baskets are great options because they can include just about anything, if you’re buying for individuals of a certain age, retro toys are extremely popular. For toys that both kids and adults will appreciate, try reel viewers, hula hoops, Slinkies, play-doh, handheld games, tops, and small collectible cars.
If you know that a certain friend collects a particular item, you can buy them one of those, or buy them something unique that they can use to start collecting from that point forward.

These kits normally cost under $30 and are therefore affordable for everyone, but both kids and adults alike will enjoy not only learning to make homemade root beer but also drinking it afterwards.
4. Grilling Baskets for Kabobs
If you know someone who loves grilling shish kabobs, these baskets make the perfect gift. They are long and narrow but have plenty of room to hold an entire shish kabob, and they keep all of the items in place as you grill so that none of them fall into the bottom of the grill. They also have long handles that don’t get hot as you’re grilling your kabobs, which means they’re super-easy to use. Priced at around $30, they make a great gift for anyone who loves to grill without breaking the bank.
5. Scratch-Off Poster
Everyone has a bucket list, and whether your bucket list includes movies you wish to see or visiting iconic landmarks, these posters allow you to scratch off a small square each time you accomplish your goal. The posters usually contain 75-100 different spots, and once you accomplish all 75-100 tasks, you’ll have an amazing poster you can look at and show off to your friends. They are also very inexpensive at around $20 each, making them affordable for everyone.
6. Birthstone Wine Bottle Stoppers
The companies that make wine bottle stoppers can be very creative, and one of the most interesting designs is stoppers that look like birthstone jewels. As you might’ve already guessed, they come in 12 different colours and styles, so whether you were born in March, December, or June, you can easily find a wine stopper whose colour matches that particular birth month. Finding unique wine bottle stoppers is easier than you think.
7. Eyeglasses Holders
Holders for eyeglasses come in all sizes and shapes, including holders that look like a face with a very distinct nose you can put the glasses on. These holders are made to stand up straight and hold your glasses tight so they don’t fall off at any point. They can also be made to look like just about anything, from human faces to animals and so much more. Even better, they’re reasonably priced and usually cost under $35–40.
8. Warming Coasters
Coasters always make great Christmas gifts, but warming coasters are even better because they are filled with a certain type of spice and are heat-activated, which means they’ll keep your drink warm the entire time you’re using it.
These are round coasters that are also fairly thick, which means the temperature of the cup or glass will never ruin the surface of the end table or coffee table. Most of these coasters contain something like cinnamon or cloves, so not only do they work great, but they smell terrific, too!
