50+ Cheap Christmas Gift Ideas For Everyone On Your List.

The holiday season is right around the corner. 

It can be hard trying to figure out the best gifts and presents for the people that mean the world to you… and that goes triple if you can’t afford it.

Because if you don’t know how to pay for those gifts, then this is a good time to make a solid plan, and a Christmas budget, and then determine the best course of action.

In myhot mess days, I would just procrastinate and hope that it would figure itself out, or I would come into some extra money in the weeks up to Christmas (hint: it never did), and then ended up using my credit cards and spending way OVER what I could afford.

If you look at your budget and figure it out though,  even if you make the same decisions that you would have if you waited until the last minute and use a credit card, you’re in a MUCH better place.  Because you’re going to have a plan, you’re going to limit the amount you spend rather than “panic buying” last minute.

So to help you plan ahead… We have an array of Christmas Presents for anyone on your list including best friends, family members, college students, extended family, kids, neighbors… there’s something on this list for everyone.

Let’s get started…

1. Mixology Dice®– Around $25

This is a game changer for someone who loves to make drinks or who likes to entertain.  The mixology dice will help them create next level drinks like a pro!  Even if have no experience bartending.   And the best part?  The cost is about $25 this is a great gift for any budget.

2. Whirley Pop -Around $40

If you’re shopping for someone who is addicted to popcorn then there’s really only one option. You need a Whirley Pop, which is a stovetop popcorn popper with a special vented lid and a popcorn mixer built into the pot top.

Years ago, our friend taught us how to make popcorn low and slow in the Whirley Pop.  These stovetop popcorn makers make insanely crunchy popcorn they’ll love.  When it’s done right, it should have a snap when you pinch it.
