Best Gifts Under $50 at a Glance


Best Gifts Under $50 Details

Here are my 2020 picks for best gifts under $50. I personally own and love many of these items.

Anthropologie Initial Necklace

I bought this Anthropologie initial necklace two years ago during their Black Friday weekend sale, and wear it all the time. This necklace makes a great gift for anyone because it suits a variety of styles. Although my style is very classic and preppy, I know people who have more of a trendy boho style that own this same necklace.

Vera Bradley Wristlet

A colorful Vera Bradley wristlet makes a great choice for gifts under $50. My personal favorite is this Disney Vera Bradley wristlet I featured in my Disney Gift Guide. This Vera Bradley wristlet would be perfect for a college sports fan.

Beautycounter Jellies

Best Gifts Under $50

These fun flavored lip glosses are on of my favorite Beautycounter holiday sets from this year. The set of 5 is under $50, but you can also break it up and gift to multiple people, making it an even more budget-friendly gift. These are 15% off through November 29, and I recommend grabbing them ASAP before they sell out!

Vera Bradley Medium Cosmetic Case

I have the Vera Bradley medium cosmetic case in two different Disney prints, and it’s also available in multiple classic Vera Bradley prints. It’s a great size for holding all your makeup essentials or travel sized toiletries.

Kate Spade Lunch Tote

Kate Spade has a couple cute lunch totes that would make great gifts. This one says “Save Room for Dessert.” Definitely a great life philosophy! And this one has polka dots and says “Out to Lunch.”

Beautycounter Hand Cream Trio

Best Gifts Under $50

This set of three aromatherapeutic hand creams is perfect for keeping your hands hydrated on the go during this season of cold weather and extra hand-washing. The three scents are Calm, Uplight, and Balance. This is another great set to break up and gift to multiple people.

Kate Spade Cherry Dot Insulated Food Container

I love anything with a fruit motif, and this Kate Spade insulated food container with a cherry on it is absolutely precious!

Beautycounter Citrus Mimosa Body Lotion

Best Gifts Under $50

This body lotion is one of my favorite Beautycounter products. It has a lovely citrus scent without any harmful artificial fragrance, and will make a foolproof gift for anyone!

Kate Spade Initial Mini Pendant

I also love this option from Kate Spade for an initial pendant. I own a slightly larger version of this necklace.

Candace Cameron Bure Love Over All T-Shirt

Candace Cameron Bure (aka “DJ Tanner”) has designed a line of gifts and apparel for DaySpring. I love this dusty rose “Love Over All” t-shirt design based on Colossians 3:14.

J.Crew Factory Flannel Pajama Pants

I had to include some cozy pajama pants in my best gifts under $50 guide! These come in several prints.

J.Crew Factory Plaid Scarf

I have a J.Crew Factory plaid scarf from a couple years ago that I love. This one comes in several different plaid color schemes.

Draper James Bow Pendant Necklace


This dainty bow necklace from Draper James is so cute, and it’s 30% off right now.

Best Gifts Under $50 Also Under $25

If you’re really on a budget, then check out these great gift ideas that are not only under $50, but also under $25!

Lilly Pulitzer Mug

I already featured this Lilly Pulitzer mug in my Cozy Gift Guide, but it’s worth sharing again here. This gorgeous mug is definitely one of my top picks for gifts under $25.

Vera Bradley ID Holder

I love ID holders for when you’re carrying a smaller bag and don’t want a full wallet taking up space. It’s also a bonus if it has a key ring, like this one from Vera Bradley.

Lilly Pulitzer Ink Pen Set

How pretty is this Lilly pen set? And it’s under $20. Plus it’s the perfect size for a stocking stuffer.

Kate Spade Striped Mug

I love Kate Spade coffee mugs, and anyone will love this classic navy & white striped one.

Lilly Pulitzer Pencil Pouch


This Lilly pencil pouch is only $14, and comes in such a pretty print. It’s a great size for holding miscellaneous loose items in your handbag, or even in a drawer.

Lilly Pulitzer Round Key Chain

Use this printed round key chain to put your keys around your wrist and free up a hand. It has an adorable orange slice charm attached as well.

Vera Bradley Lanyard

This fun printed lanyard from Vera Bradley is only $15, makes a great gift for anyone.

Kate Spade Travel Mug


I have a couple different Kate Spade travel mugs, and highly recommend as a great gift idea. This blue ombre travel mug currently available is so pretty!

Vera Bradley Mini Dome Cosmetic Case

This little Vera Bradley cosmetic case is the perfect size for holding lipstick, lip gloss, or lip balm in your bag. The Fruit Grove print (featured in my October 2020 Favorites Post) is my fave.

Kate Spade Dish Towel

Kate Spade dish towels are very affordable, and great quality. This “Eat Cake for Breakfast” one I have is back in stock, and it’s only $10. I also have and love this lemon print Kate Spade dish towel.

DaySpring Cross Necklace

DaySpring gifted me a cross necklace last year that I absolutely love. The exact necklace I have is no longer available, but this dainty cross pendant necklace is a great option to gift any Christian friend.

Happy Hand Lettering Book

Happy Hand Lettering by Maghon Taylor would make a great gift for anyone looking to take up a new hobby during this season of extra time at home. I included this book in my Under $50 gift guide last year, and it’s such a fun gift idea that it’s making an encore appearance this year.

Draper James Plaid Scrunchie

This Draper James plaid scrunchie would make the cutest stocking stuffer! Note that all Draper James items are currently 30% off-no code needed.

Draper James Compact Mirror

This compact mirror has a pretty light blue cover and says “hello beautiful” on it.

This stemless acrylic wine glass says “Cheers Y’all” on it.
