3 Genius Holiday Gift Ideas If Your Budget Is Under $50

Sponsor Content Created With Walmart

I like to think I know my friends and family members really well. After all, I talk with many of them weekly even when we're not together. Yet somehow, year after year, I find myself second guessing the perfect holiday gift to buy each of them. My brother and dad are easy (new sneakers and anything wine-related, respectively), but the women are a bit trickier.

To get out of my gifting rut, I asked a few stylish people for their best picks. One such person, whose advice I found the most helpful, was West Coast–based Christine Le. As soon as she shared the three types of products she swears by gifting this year, I knew she was right. Keep scrolling to see what they are and my budget-friendly picks for each category. You won't find anything over $50 here—you're welcome.

Everyone is wearing loungewear more than usual right now, whether they'd admit it or not, so a new stylish sweatshirt or matching set is a genius gift idea. I personally put on my sweats as soon as my video meetings are over for the day and not a minute later, so I can vouch for how excited I'd be to receive a new comfy piece. "I love a cute matching set and tie-dye is so on-trend right now," Le says of this Scoop outfit she's been living in.

Next up, Le suggests gifting a cozy knit, like an oversize cardigan or fitted turtleneck sweater, that can be styled with anything from denim to leggings. Her favorite pick right now is this ultra-cozy cardi, which she calls "a perfect layering piece that makes it very versatile."

If you don't want to gift clothing, then you really can't go wrong with accessories like a scarf, slippers, or in Le's case some simple gold jewelry. "I love the look of gold jewelry and these are great pieces that won’t break the bank", she say.
