Gift Ideas Under $50

Gift Ideas Under $50 — Week One

It’s that time of year when we bang our heads trying to find thoughtful and appreciated gifts for those we love. This year I’m going for a Christmas that won’t break the bank. Every week before Christmas, I’ll pick out items I think are good buys.

Come see what I’ve found this year.  Click on the pictures or links for more information.

Full Disclosure: I do get a tiny percentage back from Amazon for anything you buy through these links. Your support helps me stay online. Thank you!


Personal Alarm
These are so cool. Push the button and it send out a piercing siren to alert bystanders that you’re in trouble.

Very cheap security.



Tile Mate Tracker

I got to see these in action while my niece was visiting. We lost some keys somewhere on our six acres IN THE DARK. Despite a forest of trees and vegetation, she picked up the signal and we found the keys asap. It was great




Star Wars Monopoly. We have Classic Monopoly, but this one lets you use the Force.






Harry Potter’s Wand. It even illuminates!





Adult Coloring Book Set





Dual Tip Markers for brush & detail

I never realized how popular adult coloring books were until several friends mentioned that they buy them for stress relief. Healthier than alcohol.







Ninja Express Chop
Shopping for a cook? Here’s a little gadget for cooks who don’t want to drag out the big food processor.





Jelly Belly Machine
Let’s not forget the foodie.





Identity Theft Protection. This makes it much easier than shredding documents.




Emergency Car Kit
At my last company, they always gave us one nice gift a year. This was one of my favorites, maybe because it was so useful. It’s been 20 years and I still have it.

If you have a kid, spouse, or friend who’s in the car a lot, this is a thoughtful gift.


I’ll have more ideas for you next week. Stay tuned!
