Move over, Forbes! There’s a new 30 under 30 in town, and this one won’t make you feel bad about yourself and the state of your career. In fact, this list is geared to make you and your wallet feel good heading into the holiday season. From fancy salts to electric mug warmers, we’ve found the best holiday presents under $30. They’re thoughtful, sleek pieces that you’ll be proud to give — and more importantly, that your loved one will be happy to open.

These 30 amazing presents prove that good gift-giving doesn’t have to break the bank. The best presents aren’t always the biggest or most expensive items; sometimes they’re something your loved one will use every day, like a portable phone charger or at-home cold brew maker. Sometimes they’re something that feels a little luxurious, like a designer cologne or a soft leather notebook.

Whether you’re looking for something inexpensive but useful for a gift exchange or just want to stay on budget this winter, this list of presents has something for everyone — all $30 or under.
