Under $50

When you’re searching for a gift that will be well appreciated, but don’t have a lot to spend, shopping can be tough. As there are many occasions, friends and family in your life you would like to buy gifts for, this can pose a bit of a problem. There are many unique gifts under $50 that not only will delight friends, but will be kept as keepsakes for years to come. Whether you are shopping for a colleague, your other half, a friend or a family member, there is something that perfectly and uniquely fits your needs.


Shopping for business associates can be a bit rough. You may need a gift for your boss, a colleague or perhaps even an employee. It’s tough to shop for someone you don’t know very well, all while keeping it within the business realm. Look for fun and bright office products such as personalized sticky note cubes, note cards or acrylic catchalls. A colleague may also appreciate an monogrammed journal, desk calendar or letter opener to display proudly on the desk. When in doubt, choose items that relate to the office only, and go for warm, simple tones if you’re unsure of the person’s taste.


Shopping for a housewarming party for a couple you may not know very well can also be a bit tough. Everyone opts for the standard bottle of wine, but you want to try something different. There are many barware and glassware items under $50, such as a handblown pitcher, matching handblown glasses and champagne flutes to begin their new home together. Copper martini glasses and copper mugs are also good choices for couples, or for anyone in your life that enjoys a cocktail.


Shopping for baby showers or push presents for new moms can get quite overwhelming as well. There are many different types of jewelry and keepsake gifts that any new mom would appreciate. Choose from fun rope bracelets, hair barrettes and bracelets to really make a mom’s day. So many gifts focus on the baby, and neglect to pamper the new mom. Remember that every gift from Mark and Graham can be personalized and monogrammed, so any gift for a new mom can have the newborn’s initials, mom’s initials or other small word or phrase of meaning. Even baby accessories such as blankets and bibs can feature personalization.


Gifts for your spouse can be a tough call too, especially when it’s one of those holidays where you said you weren’t going to buy anything. A small token of appreciation is always welcome. When shopping for him there are some unique gifts under $50, such as monogrammed money clips, iPhone cases, earbud cases, pocket squares and even ties. Men may also appreciate a keychain or fob, or deck of playing cards for game night with their buddies. When shopping for men, always consider business-themed gifts as well, such as business card holders and desk ornaments. When shopping for her, bags and totes are always a sure bet, and there are many available for someone shopping on a budget. Opt for cozy beach totes for summer fun, personalized and monogrammed cosmetic cases to store toiletries or small hand purses for dinners or lunches. Simple, monogrammed jewelry is also a terrific idea for women.


Other unique gifts under $50 that work well for nearly anyone include trick-or-treat sacks or Halloween decorations for the family, cheese boards and corkscrews for the couple or family who enjoys entertaining, or leather coasters perfect for mom or dad. No matter the occasion, there are plenty of choices if you’re on a budget that are unique and wonderful keepsakes that are well-appreciated by friends and family.
