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 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.
Holiday Sweet Treats
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, and they’ll be having the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny Kaye. $29.99
Moose Munch Premium Popcorn Mini Holiday Tin
Who doesn’t love a sweet and salty snack during the holidays? Can’t think of anyone, right? The Moose Munch Premium Popcorn Mini Holiday Tin offers one bag each of classic caramel, peppermint bark, and milk and dark chocolate popcorn — and the chocolate is truffle quality, so you know it’s excellent. $29.99
Holiday Snack Gift Box
Satisfy anyone’s savory cravings with the Holiday Snack Gift Box filled with Thuringer sausage, cheddar cheese, mixed nuts, and Moose Munch Premium Popcorn…and don’t forget about the honey hot mustard! It makes for a fantastic dipping sauce for the sausage. Don’t say we didn’t tell you. $29.99
The fruitcake has been the punchline to many jokes, including one about how there’s only one in the world and it just gets passed around from house to house. This version, however, is so delicious that 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 of a chewy, gooey mix of nuts and large and delicious dried fruit held together by dough and then glazed to a gleaming, shiny perfection. We’re not sure who described it that way, but if you miss out on trying this, the joke’s on you. $29.99
Mini Chocolate Tower
This Mini Chocolate Tower may be, well, mini, but it takes chocolate gifts to the max! It comes with milk chocolate mini mints, milk chocolate-covered cherries, and milk chocolate popcorn. Who doesn’t love a triple dose of chocolate during the holidays? $29.99
Chocolate Chip Cookie Holiday Gift Box
When it comes to treats, you can never go wrong with a classic, and nothing is more classic than a chocolate chip cookie. Made using a top secret recipe, the cookies inside this tin will bring smiles to everyone’s face. Glass of milk not included. $29.99
Keepsake Pear Ornament
Pears and Christmas go together like, well, we’re not quite sure if there’s anything more perfect than this combination during the holiday season. You’ll probably eat your 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. Better yet, you don’t need to ripen it. $14.99
Holiday Hot Chocolate Tin Collection
‘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 Tin Collection comes with milk chocolate-, peppermint-, and caramel-flavored hot cocoa mixes all packed in their own holiday tin. Make sure they open this gift first for happy sipping all day long. $29.99
Buttercream Frosted Candy Cane Flavored Cookie Flavor Box
If you know someone who is all about peppermint, then look no further. The Buttercream Frosted Candy Cane Flavored Cookie Flavor Box comes with 12 buttercream frosted cookies all boasting that festive candy cane flavor. Each cookie comes individually wrapped for easy sharing and storage if, by some miracle, there are leftovers. $29.99
DIY Paint Your Own Holiday Cookie Kit

I would like to know how to get the pears ripe enough to eat?
Monique, great question!
To make sure your pears are ripe, we encourage you to keep them in the box they come in at room temperature. You’ll want to check daily to see if the flesh on the base of the stem yields slightly when gently pressed by your thumb. We then have ripe pears. Once at this stage, you can use right away or store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. We hope this helps.
Please accept our apology for the delay in responding. If you have any further questions, we would be happy to help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These ideas are so cute!! I especially love the date night in a tin idea. Literally so simple, just things we’d usually buy but with an extra special feel! I’ll definitely be doing this to surprise my boyfriend.
I also like the fact that you can make a basket out of literally any theme so it’s the perfect gift for anyone!
Thanks so much!!!
Yummy! I had Moose Munch for the very first time when I visited Michigan this past August. As a Canadian foodie who shockingly had never heard of your store before, i was in LOVE immediately! Wish I could have access to your yummy products all the time!
