Everyone wants to be the secret santa holiday hero, which is seemingly unfeasible without breaking the bank. Sure, you’d absolutely kill the game if you bought Bob a new bike or Jane the iPhone X; but, while we’d love to splurge on friends and coworkers, our budgets don’t quite budge for the holidays. Yet, how can one possibly find a gift that’s both affordable and awesome? It’s a dirty job but somebody’s gotta do it, so we went ahead and combed through the coal to find a few epic gifts under twenty bucks that, indeed, do not suck.
The best gifts are those you’re passionate about giving. So, for us, tequila + literature is a sure winner. This novel-inspired anthology of cocktail recipes invites you to mix a bit of character into the next dinner party you host. Vermouth the Bell Tolls? Brilliant.
For the adventurous, eco-conscious friend we all have, snag one of these inflatable and solar-powered lanterns. Not only are these little lights uber chic and easy on the eyes, but they’re also super portable and sustainable.
While this jam box may be small, it sure packs a punch. For the music lover in your life, this portable bluetooth speaker is perfect for the beach, small dinner parties, lounging by the pool, cooking and dancing in the kitchen. Let the imagination and tunes run wild.
Everyone needs and appreciates a good candle. But, is it just us or do prices seem exorbitantly high recently? Nest makes some of the best in the business, and this small holiday-scented votive is just $16. Your giftee will smell the love.
If you’re tired of giving and receiving knick knacks that will never be put to use, look no further than this genius toaster grilled cheese bag. For those on the go, this pouch makes for perfect, no mess-grilling — we’re just bitter we didn’t come up with it first.
For the cocktail or beer aficionado in your office, this keg tapping kit puts a fruity, creative spin on his or her favorite libation. All you have to do is carve out a summer melon or pumpkin, stick the tap in and drink straight from the source. This makes alcohol totally natural, right?
Gifting anything that involves bacon is an obvious victory. But, a gift that’s ideal for bacon lovers and health nuts alike? Pure triumph. This revolutionary bacon wave allows you to microwave up to 14 pieces at a time and separates the bacon from its grease. Which makes it healthy. Which means more bacon.
Carry On Cocktail Kit
There are two types of people over the holidays: those who look forward to family trips and those who don’t. For the friend or coworker who’s dreading the flight to see his/her in-laws, this carry on cocktail kit is a must. When you’re able to kick back with a nice Old Fashioned, all is well in the world.
Yet another fantastic invention that has us kicking ourselves. For the taco lovers out there (you’re looking at us), this press allows you to fry up some fresh shells instead of opting for those from the box. The perfect taco is the answer to all of our childhood Christmas wishes.
Electric Cocktail Mixer
This one is for the coworker who doubles as a mixologist maven. The electric cocktail mixer shakes things up at the touch of a button, making any home bartender feel like a total boss behind the bar.
Again, for the taco savants out there, just because it isn’t Tuesday doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your favorite Mexican plato. These fun socks allow are a total fiesta for your feet, allowing you to spruce up a simple outfit with some color and spice.
