The best gifts under $30 | April 2018

Whether you’re trying to buy a present for your best friend, boyfriend, sister, or the coworker you pulled out of the hat for Secret Santa, it’s tough buying gifts on a budget.

If you’re stuck for ideas on what to buy, finder.com has put together the best gifts from around the web for under $30.

Whether the person you’re buying for is into technology, books, or food, we’ll make sure you’ll find something affordable and amazing. The best part is you also have exclusive access to our range of coupons and promo codes so you are guaranteed to get the best deal on the web.

How to choose the best gifts on a budget

If you’re on a tight budget, don’t worry. You can choose affordable gifts for most of your friends and family that still impress your loved ones. Make sure you choose gifts they’ll really love to show how much you care.

When buying gifts for family, consider gifts you’ve exchanged with them in the past. Think if there’s anything you can buy which may have sentimental value attached to it, such as a framed photo of your family or a charm which may represent something personal. If the gift is for close friends or your significant other you can also buy sentimental gifts, or perhaps something that they want or need.

If the gift is for a coworker but you aren’t sure of what they’d like, pay attention to the things they talk about at work or take a look at their desk or workstation and see if there’s anything obvious they need. If all else fails, a fun, quirky gift is always appreciated.
