Guide: Gift ideas for under $50

The team at finder.com.au has found the best online retailers for the Christmas season and assembled the top gifts, all for under $50.

If you're trying to decide how much to spend on someone, $50 is usually a pretty good limit to set yourself. Setting price limits on gifts for occasions like Christmas is also a great option for families, your workplace, or even in your circle of friends. A price limit ensures no one overspends or underspends and gives people a framework for picking gifts. It also helps you budget for a season which usually involves a lot of spending. We have found the best products from a huge range of online retailers to help you find something for everyone you're looking for.

How to choose a gift they'll love

The art of gift giving is no easy skill to master. You may want your gift to say something meaningful to a family member, or you may just want to impress your boss. Maybe you've drawn a random coworkers name for Secret Santa and now need to buy something lighthearted yet appropriate. Whatever the goal of your gift, there are a few ways you can help choose something to buy.

  1. Ask around. The easiest way to find out what someone wants is to ask those closest to them. If you are one of the people who are closest to them you can ask a few other people to help you decide because they may have a better idea than you do.
  2. Listen. When big gift-giving occasions like Christmas are looming you'd be surprised at how often people are dropping hints as to what they'd like. They may even be discussing things they're buying for other people which might give you an idea. If you pay attention you may just hear something that sparks some inspiration.
  3. Research. A lot of online retailers have gift-giving guides available in the lead-up to Christmas. While you're browsing through sites with a large range of products you might see something someone would like or you may get some ideas for other gifts.

Buying presents for guys seems like it should be simple, but it isn't. It's hard to narrow down products because more often than not they don't know what they want, or they do know what they want but they've already bought it for themselves. A good option is sometimes buying something they wouldn't normally buy for themselves, or something they don't know they want or need. This may involve a little thinking outside of the box, but we've found some great gifts to help you choose.
