20 Gifts Under $20 to Send to Your Family This Year
  • Opening Intro -

    The holidays are here, but the thought might bring more anxiety than joy if you’re on a budget. How can you delight your loved ones on the cheap?


Have no fear. These 20 gifts under $20 will delight your family this holiday season, so you can start 2021 without a depleted bank account.

1. A Selection of Herbal Teas

Few things taste better on cold winter mornings than a hot, soothing mug of tea. Why not give the gift of a holiday assortment, all neatly arranged in stackable tins? Your idea does double duty, as your recipient can reuse the containers.

2. A Beef Jerky Box

Are your folks in love with keto this year? Help them stick to their resolutions with a gourmet beef jerky sampler full of snacks approved for their lifestyle. They’ll get a protein punch while shrinking their waistlines.

3. A Pair of Custom Cat Socks

Do your folks consider their kitty their second “baby?” If so, let them wear their precious purring pal with a pair of socks complete with their pet’s picture. Such items also provide a touch of whimsy for your younger sibling who wants to spice up their school uniform.

4. A Month of Audible Credit

Do you love someone who faces a monster commute daily? Enliven their drive time with a month of Audible credit that they can redeem for the audiobook of their choice.

5. A Plush Throw

‘Tis the season to get cozy! Help your loved ones stay snug this winter with a plush throw that’s so heavenly soft that they may never emerge from their latest Netflix couch binge.

6. A Chia Pet

Chia pets offer retro chic, and the more houseplants your folks have, the better their indoor air quality will be. Give them a taste of their childhood holidays — you can even find “The Child” for fans of “The Mandalorian.”

7. A Windowsill Herb Garden

What’s the secret ingredient top chefs use to make their dishes sparkle? It isn’t stale herbs, that’s for sure. Make sure Mom always has fresh basil for her pasta sauce with a windowsill herb garden that lets her dig in the dirt all year long.

8. An Aromatherapy Mister

Lots of folks love fragrance, but paraffin wax candles release toxins such as toluene into your indoor air. Instead, give the gift of an aromatherapy mister, so your folks can create custom essential oil blends and breathe more comfortably.

9. A New Set of Earbuds

If your younger siblings still share a bedroom, they could drive each other nuts with conflicting musical tastes. Help keep the peace with a new set of earbuds — at these prices, you can afford a pair for each.

10. A Board Game for Game Night

Does family game night always end with someone getting mad and flipping the Monopoly board? Why not mix up the fun with a new board game you can all enjoy and leave the outbursts behind?

11. An Adult Coloring Book

Coloring qualifies as a mindfulness activity, and everyone seems to want to get in on that trend. You can find adult coloring books from mild to wild — you can even top off your gift with a set of markers or crayons from your local dollar store.

12. An Oven Pan

Does one of your loved ones transform into Martha Stewart’s twin during the holidays? Help them get their baking jam on with a new set of oven pans or one high-quality model in a shape they lack.

13. A Glass Straw Set

You know tons of ocean pollution comes from plastic — including the humble drinking straw. While you can find reusable models from various materials, glass ones preserve beverages’ flavor — and you can find them for less than $20.

14. A Moleskine Notebook

Journaling is a fabulous stress-busting activity — who doesn’t need more of those after 2020? Give the gift of a quality Moleskine model that invites your loved one to pen their innermost thoughts.

15. A Succulent Gift Set

Does your parents’ home lack houseplants? These living works of art do more than add beauty — they help clear the air. If they don’t have much in the way of green thumbs, a succulent gift set requires minimum maintenance.

16. A Set of Cable Bites

Do your loved ones fly through cellphone charger cables due to fraying and breakage? Help their expensive cords last longer with a set of cable bites that make it look like a whimsical tiny mouse is nibbling at their iPhone.

17. A Dollar Shave Club Starter Set

If the women in your life still pay retail prices for razors, they’re probably getting a raw deal — manufacturers continue to tack a “pink tax” on products designed for women. However, with apologies to Gertrude Stein, a razor is a razor is a razor. Get them a starter set from Dollar Shave Club and help them save money each month.

18. A Soy Candle

Paraffin wax is notorious for adversely affecting indoor air quality. Soy wax burns more cleanly, and you can find sets under $20.

19. A Cold-Brew Maker

Does someone on your list have a coffee shop addiction? Help them keep more green in their wallet with a high-quality cold press that will make a heavenly cup of joe much tastier than what their barista creates.

20. A Freezable Wine Bag

Everyone knows “that” person — the one who rolls into every family event with a bottle of libation tucked in their purse or backpack. Help them keep their sauvignon blanc at the perfect serving temperature during transport with a freezable wine bag — you decide whether to include an extra gift of Two-Buck Chuck.
