It’s the most wonderful time of the year—except for your bank account. Even the most tactful shoppers can attest: It takes a lot of digging to find the best gifts under $100. You know the unicorns we’re talking about… those great gifts that look and feel luxe but still fit your budget.
For the skeptics out there, it really is possible to score the title of Christmas-gift giver of the year and manage to keep your balance in the black. The trick is to scout out unique presents, and luckily for you, we’ve already done all the legwork to help you find the best gifts for women and men (and everyone in between). Yep, even the people who have everything.
A few hints? If you’re searching for gifts for husbands or boyfriends that aren’t just another set of whiskey stones or more joggers, start with multitools and tech gifts. If a holiday gift for Mom is top of your list, there are plenty of personalized gifts and dainty jewelry to show her how much you care. And if gifts for teens have you stumped (we feel you!), there are plenty of TikTok-approved tumblers, viral Amazon bestsellers, and stylish fanny packs to be had. Best of all? Many of our faves are affordable gifts that clock in under $25.
