Christmas gifts come in all shapes, sizes, and price points. Sure, it would be great if we could all afford to give a $10,000 watch or a luxurious trip to Bali or a car from one of those December savings events, but for most of us, buying gifts like that just isn’t realistic. Some of the best and most thoughtful gifts are those that don’t cost a lot while still bringing the holiday cheer (and maybe a little chocolate, too). Here are 10 gifts under $30 that won’t break the bank but will show how much you care.
Send a few chocolate and raspberry wishes with a box of Holiday Sweet Treats. This gift includes Moose Munch® Premium Popcorn and handcrafted silky-smooth chocolate truffles from the famed Harry & David candy kitchen. But the crowning jewels are the raspberry-filled tree-cutout shortbread cookies. One bite of these dandies, and they’ll be feeling the holiday spirit in no time.
Satisfy anyone’s savory cravings with this Holiday Meat and Cheese Gift Box filled with Thuringer sausage, cheddar cheese, mixed nuts, and Moose Munch® Premium Popcorn…and don’t forget about the honey hot mustard! We can only warn you if you forget it.
The fruitcake has been the punchline to many jokes, including one about how there’s only one in the world — it just gets passed around from house to house. This version is so delicious, not only will you not want it to leave your house, you won’t even pass it around the table. Should you want a jazzier one, there’s the Fruitcake Confection which has been described as less of a cake and more a chewy, gooey mix of nuts and large and delicious dried fruit held together by dough and then glazed to a gleaming, shiny perfection.
Sharing a box of gourmet chocolates is a wonderful holiday tradition. This Holiday Chocolate Collection comes with signature truffles in a variety of holiday flavors, including candy cane truffle, dulce de leche pears, and salted caramel cups. For an extra treat, add a bottle of red wine for a perfect pairing with the rich chocolate flavors.
Pears and Christmas go together like, well, we’re not quite sure if there’s anything more perfect than this combination. You’ll probably eat your edible pears within a few days, but this ceramic ornament will last throughout the holidays and you can hang it from your tree year after year. No ripening needed.
‘Tis the season for fleece blankets, snuggling on couches wrapped in said blankets, and sipping hot cocoa. Throw a movie in there, too, while you’re at it. The Holiday Hot Chocolate Duo Gift Box comes with milk chocolate and candy cane peppermint cocoa mix, along with marshmallow candy stir sticks. Make sure they open this gift first for happy sipping all day long.
Celebrate the holidays with buttery pecan cookies that melt in your mouth. Cheryl’s Pecan Butterball Gift Tin comes with 32 pecan butternut balls that are rolled in powdered sugar immediately after coming out of the oven. Similar to Mexican wedding cakes, these cookies will disappear within minutes of unwrapping them.
Create your own winter wonderland with Cheryl’s DIY Gingerbread House Kit. This kit comes with a house already baked, making your gingerbread tradition easier and fun for the whole family. Whether it’s your first time or your 50th, decorating your own gingerbread house will always make you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. (That feeling may also be from drinking too much eggnog.)
