Rule of thumb (especially in 2022): Gifts don’t have to be expensive. They just need to be carefully picked, to match the quirkiness of the recipients and make them feel like a million bucks. So here is a list of affordable gifts that won’t come across as cheap at all.

For that single friend who won’t commit but has a great sense of humor

Not only does it reach full growth in 72 hours (instead of 30 years), but you can take it all over again, without the need of a therapist to help you solve your problems!

For those who will never skip breakfast, or a good opportunity to laugh

Perfect for those who start their days with a laid back breakfast and some me time. This spoon will work wonders and instantly add a touch of good mood to the perfect breakfast recipe they have already developed over the years.

For the actual serial killer

Now that we’ve dealt with the cereal killer, let’s turn our attention to the true serial killer. The one who will kill even the cactus that survives the desert. The one who can’t stand the green leaves. Or even if (s)he does, one can’t tell by the color of their plants.

For those who need a kind reminder to join the conversation

We might also need one of those, right? Well, with all the family and friends reunions, the poster might be useful for everyone.

For those who like it hot

The food, we’re talking about food! We all have that friend or family member who enjoys some extra hotness, right? If a face comes to your mind, then this mini, yet mighty set is the perfect gift.

For those who like it loud

Who said chic wireless headphones have to cost a ton? This pair looks amazing and is under $30.

For the techies

So hard to find a present for the tech enthusiasts without breaking the bank. This Google Nest Mini might a nice toy for them, telling the temperature outside, playing their favorite songs and being able to learn the answers to random trivia questions. 

For the science guy/gal + wine lover

When the passion for science meets the love for wine, there are sparkles all around. Because, you know, moderation is subjective.

For the chic traveler

Yes, there is such a thing. And once you’ve used it, you’ll be wondering how you have ever lived without it.

For all the homebodies out there

Let’s be real. Who wouldn’t want to bury their feet in these super lush slippers? Rest my case!

For the other homebodies who didn’t get the slippers

This plush sweatshirt feels like a cozy blanket. It’s designed to lounge around the house in style and comfort, and features a front pocket with a fleece hood.

For the foodies who are always on a diet

That friend who’s always on a diet, usually starting on Monday, and who constantly talks about food will enjoy this gift.

For the multi-taskers…

This wine glass holder makes it possible to sip in the shower or the bathtub. The recipient can use it for wine glasses, beer cans or even some coffee mugs — whatever their heart (or stomach) desires.

For the evolved parents

Sick of the same old dated games every game night? This instant classic was made and played by parents like you. With age-appropriate toilet humor and funny innuendos for the adults, it can be enjoyed by all ages.

For the friend/family member always looking for something

Useful cheap (just the way we like it!) tech gift, that will help the recipient keep track of keys, bags, or any other item it’s attached to.
