Christmas is only a couple of weeks away. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably still unprepared. And with good reason — the holiday season can be overwhelming! Sometimes it seems like there are far too many choices and not enough time to sift through everything. Add to that the budget you’re probably trying to stick to, and procrastination sets in.
But don’t worry – there’s still time to find something fabulous for the important people in your life. Here are some gift ideas from the GoGirl Team that will help check everyone off your shopping list.
Christmas Gifts Under $50
For the Philanthropist: Have someone in your life that prefers to give than to receive? Try giving them the gift that keeps on giving with a GiveNow Card. JustGive.org offers give cards in various denominations where your recipient can select the charity of their choice to receive the amount of the give card. From the website: “You choose the value of the cards; your recipient chooses the charity; their charity receives a donation—everyone wins.” Sounds pretty good to us!
For the Foodie: Help your favorite cook expand their skills with a little professional instruction. Sur La Table offers cooking class gift cards in the denomination of your choosing. Classes range from date night themes like Paris Holiday and Seasfood Bistro Classes, to classes on French Macarons, Italian Gnocchi, and Artisan Pizza Workshop. Yes, please!
For the Bookworm or Commuter: Have someone on your list who loves books on tape? Or someone who spends a lot of time commuting? A gift membership to Audible, an Amazon company, will help the time fly by as they commute to work and listen to classics or current bestsellers. Members have access to over 150,000 titles through their app. Memberships start at $45 for three months.
For the Fitness Aficionado: Know a fitness fanatic or someone who is hoping to gear up her exercise plan before Jan 1? Think about gifting some products that will make her routine easier. With Black Mountain Products’ portable resistance band set and carrying case a workout is possible anywhere.
For the Travel Junkie: Who doesn’t want to document A telescopic lens and tripod kit makes photo documentation on the move easier than ever. If you’re following a globe-trotting friend’s Instagram account from home think about surprising her with a few of your favorite shots. You can get everything from posters to magnets to photo books on Printstagram.
For the Fashionista: Who doesn’t want a session with a personal stylist? Stitch Fix is an online personal shopping service for women. Customers create a style profile and are sent 5 hand picked items. Keep one or them all. Gift cards start at $20.
For Your Better Half: There’s lots you can buy for your partner, of course, but we’re big on gifting experiences. How about a home cooked meal for your love? If you’re still not an expert in the kitchen think about enlisting a recipe delivery service like Blue Apron, Plated, or Hello Fresh. With a little help from one of these even the novice will be able to prepare a gourmet meal!
