14 of the best gifts under $50 to ask for and give in 2020
For the work-from-home workin’ machine
So you’re work from home, huh? If you’re rolling out of bed and opening up your laptop and “clocking in” with your slippers and pajamas on, we are one in the same!. Work from home (aka WFH) has obviously changed up the traditional workspace as well as the day-to-day routine. With virtual meetings and a crowded working space, we understand that this year has been a huge transition...which is why we’re so excited about these two amazing finds: the Rocketbook smart reusable notebook and the lap desk.
As the #1 best seller in spiral notebooks on Amazon with over 27,000 reviews, the Rocketbook smart reusable notebook lives up to the hype. Although it feels like a traditional notebook, the Rocketbook is endlessly reusable and connects to all your favorite cloud services – Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, Box, OneNote, Slack, iCloud and more. By using the free Rocketbook application for iOS and Android, all handwritten notes can be sent to the cloud. Once you’ve uploaded your notes, simply erase the notes with a damp cloth and get ready for your next brainstorm session with a clean slate. With pages made from synthetic materials that provide an extremely smooth writing experience, this notebook is a must-have WFH essential for 2021.
The lap desk is compatible, comfortable and portable. Fitting up to 15.6” laptops and most tablets, the lap desk also contains a phone slot and an integrated mouse pad to maximize efficiency and productivity. An innovative, dual-bolster cushion conforms to your lap for optimal comfort. This smooth and flat surface allows for proper laptop ventilation, so your lap stays cool without overheating. With a 4.8-star rating and the #1 best seller in lap desks, adding this to the cart seems like the only logical choice.
Gifts for the whole family
Known as the new pun-based card game that will shuffle your boredom, the Punderdome card game is for pun lovers and fun-havers. From the father-daughter duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition, this game is an amusing way to connect with family either in-person or remotely over Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. With a 4.2-star rating and a “...witty way to get families to put cellphones and other technology away for a bit and interact with each other,” Punderdome will be the family activity everyone requests for all holiday events.
The USA family puzzle is perfect for all age groups. This 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle measures 27” x 20” and requires everyone to put their heads together and phones down. Featuring vibrant illustrations of the attributes of the 50 states, this challenging yet engaging puzzle is just the activity to get all the fam in one room for some screen-free fun. An Amazon Choice product with a 4.7-star rating, this creative puzzle is ready to test you and your family’s geographical knowledge (but perhaps stay away from the states game as seen in Friends – let’s keep things light).
Gifts for the one who never takes a break
We all know someone who has a hard time shutting down and logging off; all work and no play kind of vibes. It’s important to have separation and take some “me time” – in fact, fitting in time for yourself is essential for healthy habits. Do that special someone on your holiday list (even if it’s yourself) a favor and get them the heated microwaveable neck and shoulder wrap and some baebody eye gel.
Crafted by Mars Wellness Company, this heated microwaveable neck and shoulder wrap delivers soothing, long-lasting, deep penetration for hot and cold weighted therapy. With aromatherapy of lavender, peppermint, chamomile and other natural herbs, this wrap relieves stress, tension, muscle pain, stiffness or cramping anytime of the day. The high collar and large curved shape easily wraps around the neck and upper shoulders. Whether you opt for heating it in the microwave or chilling it in the freezer, this wrap goes best with morning coffee, afternoon naps, surprise phone calls from your boss or after work couch sitting. We won’t blame you if you’ve also added this item to your list.
Baebody’s eye gel is frequently ranked the #1 best-selling eye gel on Amazon. Reducing the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, under eye bags and wrinkles, this lightweight gel is the holy grail for those who never stop grinding. And if there’s anything mask-wearing has taught us, it’s that the eyes tell all. A powerful blend of vitamin E, Matrixyl 3000 and peptide complex, this cruelty and gluten-free gel is essential for your morning and nighttime routine. Ditch the under-eye patches and get this eye gel because that “5 more minutes and I’ll log off” person on your list needs it.
Gifts for the lady in your life
Sister, mom, aunt, cousin, girlfriend – you definitely have one of these on your list. As a team of mostly women (who just so happen to love shopping), we know what women are looking for this holiday season; a gift that’s thoughtful while also managing to tap into a little (a lot) of me time. A soy candle set and baebody’s coconut body scrub? Bingo. Now you’re on to something!
A good smelling house is the key to a woman’s happiness – and this soy candle set will make that dream come true. Amazon’s #1 best seller in candle sets, this set includes four tins of scented candles from lavender, lemon, Mediterranean fig and fresh spring. Made from natural soy wax and pure-grade natural essential oils, these candles burn up to 25-30 hours. As a bonus, these beautiful tins can be reused as a decorative storage container once they’ve been burned. A 4.4-star rating, this candle set is sure to leave a smile on that special lady on your list’s face.
Baebody’s coconut milk body scrub is the perfect blend of sea salt, coconut milk and almond oil – the triple threat to good skin. An Amazon Choice product, this exfoliating scrub gets rid of pesky dead skin cells while also providing moisture for healthy looking, revitalized skin. While coconut milk is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that help prevent aging, almond oil contains high amounts of vitamin A and E, which helps soften and soothe skin while also reducing sun damage. Luxurious in the self-care department, your lady will be loving her skin and you a little bit extra after you get her this scrub.
Gifts for the men in your life
We’ve seen the TikToks and the tweets. We know how obsessed men are with video games, the setup of lugging multiple screens into one room for the “ultimate sports experience,” and apparently the Bachelor? We’ve got two big items that will keep your man happy and well groomed: the Roku streaming stick and baebody’s tea tree oil shampoo.
One of the best media streaming gifts of 2020, the Roku streaming stick has a 4.7-star rating and over 39,000 raving reviews. This wireless receiver provides an extended range and stronger signal for smooth streaming, even in rooms far away from the router. Supporting Netflix, Prime Video, HBO, Hulu with live TV, Apple TV, The Roku Channel, Showtime, Peacock, Google Play and more, this streaming stick provides all your favorites with sharp resolution and vivid color for excellent picture quality. You won’t have to switch around multiple remotes because you can power up your TV, adjust the volume, mute and control your streaming all with one remote. You can also use your voice to quickly search across channels, turn captions on and more. A real bang for your buck, this gift’s a winner.
Baebody’s tea tree oil shampoo will make the man in your life’s hair look and feel fabulous. (And you can also use it yourself!) Winter brings on dry weather and dry weather leads to a dry scalp...and the only thing we need snowing, is the weather. This 4.4-star deep-cleansing shampoo helps remove build up and impurities from the scalp while restoring the hair’s natural luster. Tea tree’s calming and healing properties is great for sensitive scalps because it helps hair grow at its normal rate while also preventing it from falling out. This is a gift his hair will thank you for.
Gifts for the boss who deserves something special
Ah, the boss. You might think, “Do I really need to get my boss something?” It’s 2020. Get your boss something and write a thank you card...or several. Whether you’re a new employee or you’ve been there for years and need help thinking outside of the box, we’ve got you covered – for the boss who took vacation to watch the Masters from home, go for the golf putt kit. And for the boss whose veins run with coffee, we suggest the cold-brew coffee maker.
The golf putt kit is a great gift because as we head into cooler weather, your boss won’t be able to hit the course. And to be honest, golf has been the saving grace for several people during this pandemic. As the #1 best seller in golf putting mats with over 7,000 ratings, the Putt-A-Bout grassroots putt kit contains built-in sand trap cutouts for missed shots and three practice cup cutouts. Supporting a non-slip grip that easily stays put on floors, your boss’s work from home office just scored a hole in one.
If your boss is always on Zoom with a cup of coffee, this Osaka glass cold-brew coffee maker is your move. Brewed in just a few easy steps, this coffee maker will be saving your boss mid-day trips to Starbucks. With an airtight design that keeps brew fresh for over a week, this coffee maker is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Wonderfully spill-proof, the handle and spout are designed to help you make an easy pour. Bonus – it fits in the fridge door. For the ultimate coffee experience, give your boss something he, she or they will use every day.
Gifts for the ones who love stocking stuffers
If you’ve got a stocking, we’ve got a gift. Stocking stuffers are so fun because you can fit so many items in just one beautifully stitched package. With all the stockings hung by the fire side, let us be your guide. Step aside Christmas tree – baebody’s collagen moisturizer and nügg’s aqua boost face masks bring a whole new kind of glow this holiday season.
If you’re looking for a product that has it all, baebody’s collagen moisturizer hits the sweet spot. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and provides strength and cushioning for bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The collagen peptides in baebody’s moisturizer emulates the collagen your body naturally produces, which helps rebuild the skin and promote new skin cell growth for younger looking skin. Reducing the appearance of fine lines, this plumping moisturizer has a 4.4-star rating and is one of the best stocking stuffers you can give...because it keeps on giving.
nügg’s aqua boost face masks are the perfect boost for holiday hydration. Good for all skin types, especially dry skin, this lightweight gel facial mask provides intense hydration power. Made with natural ingredients like camellia seed oil, rosehip oil, aloe juice and spirulina extract, these super moisturizers help retain skin’s natural moisture barrier with nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. A four-time winner of Allure’s Best of Beauty Award, this face mask provides glowing and dewy skin in just ten minutes. If you’re looking for that holiday glow, it’s a no-brainer.
