It’s officially the holiday season and you know what that means…pretty presents under the tree! But if you are a college student (or just broke in general), buying gifts for your loved ones may stress you out.
Good news! You can still buy great gifts without having to break the bank. All of the gifts listed here in this guide are under $50!

Holiday Gifts All Under $50!
For the Beauty Lover
Have a friend who is constantly making trips to Sephora or dragging you to Ulta? She may be a beauty lover! All of these pretty picks are under $50 and will totally show her that you care, and pay attention to all those beauty gurus she follows on Instagram!
A few of my other favorites for beauty lovers include anything by Mario Badescu (especially this silver powder and drying lotion.) I’ve also given Soap & Glory products as gifts before because they have the cutest packaging ever, aren’t super expensive, and make great gift sets. This gift set is under $20 from Soap & Glory and looks amazing!
For the Fitness Junkie
If your friend hits the gym every day and never goes anywhere without her S’well bottle (another great gift!), she may be a fitness junkie. Receiving quality workout gear is always nice, and something people sometimes may not splurge on for themselves.
Another perfect present to give is a Lululemon headband. These headbands are seriously the best because they have little grips on them that catch all of your flyway hair. I’ve had mine for years and they never give up!
For Your Mom
You can’t forget about momma during the holidays!
While I’m sure your mom will appreciate anything you get her, I always think a well thought-out gift is best. What does your mom enjoy doing in her spare time?
If your mom likes to read, consider getting her a popular book or journal. If she likes to spend time outdoors, think about getting her some nice hiking gear or a fitness tracker. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!
For the Boyfriend/Husband
What is it that is so entertaining about shopping for boys? Who knows.
I love this coffee mug warmer for another gift idea. It keeps your drink hot while being minimalistic enough to keep on a work desk. Another idea is to get your man some merch to rep his favorite sports team. My hometown team is the Cavaliers, so the official NBA Champions shirt is always a go-to 😉
