Gift Guide Under $50

Have you finished all of your Christmas shopping yet? If not, look no further for the best gifts under $50 (and under $25!) I tried to make sure to include items from retailers like Nordstrom, where you can easily order online and then pick up in-store or curbside. Plus, there are quite a few unisex gifts on here that you could gift to both women and men.

As a reminder, I shared about all of the shipping deadlines along with retailers offering curbside pick-up in this post along with gifts under $250 and under $100. Many stores are cutting off shipping on Tuesday in order to get it for Christmas.

Under $50
