Ho ho ho! We’ve rounded up the best gifts under $100. From Star Wars waffle makers and skin care creams to real-life spy thrillers and boozy treats, we’ve got something for everyone on your list in this budget-friendly gift guide. And there’s more cliches where that one came from!
The 25 Best Holiday Gifts Under $100
Lord Jones is like the Bentley of CBD, and their famous gumdrops, each of which contain a potent 20mg of CBD are like… the Bentley of Bentleys. Choose from two holiday flavors: sugarplum and mango chili. According to Starbucks, Gingerbread was so last year.
MaroCevalo.com, $115 ($69 with promo code CAKE)
We’re partial to anything that’s in black and pink (#onbrand), but we think this sleek timepiece from watchmakers Maro Cevalo should be on everyone’s wish list this year. Not only does it tell time correctly, a portion of every sale goes to Equality Now, a nonprofit improving the rights of women and girls around the globe. We like all of this so much that we’re giving you an exclusive promo code. Just type in CAKE when you check out, and you’ll get it for $69. Which is a dollar under $70!
Keep your drink super-cold with a set of stainless steel tumblers from the ultimate outdoorsy brand. These stackable pints come with lids to prevent spills, whether you’re sitting by a campfire or smuggling wine into an Uber.
Dermatology queen Kate Somerville launched this moisturizer that combines retinol and vitamin C to brighten skin so you look like a person who actually hydrates and gets an appropriate amount of sleep.
While we were busy Instagramming our way through our twenties, former CIA operative Amayrills Fox spent hers deep undercover negotiating with terrorists. No way rosé! Yes way. And in this autobiography, she details it all.
You don’t even need to be a certified germaphobe to get behind this concept that fits all phone sizes. Our phones are basically petri dishes, and this bacteria-zapping gadget will get them clean again. Now if only it could clean up our 2 a.m. search history, too.
8. Geode Puzzle
Kick holiday puzzle time up a notch with these agate-inspired puzzles — the pieces are laser-cut from birch and mimic the crystalline structure of a geode. They come in pink, blue, and family drama.
This gilded cage is the perfect way for the Potterhead in your life to display their 24K gold time-turner necklace. Accio diamonds!!! (Why isn’t this working?)
If your bestie is the type to get lost. I mean really really lost, you might want to get her this combo featuring a beechwood hatchet with a carbon steel blade and David Canterbury’s 101 wilderness survival guide Bushcraft 101. We’re guessing the latter is made out of paper.
If you know someone who’s seriously obsessed with their hometown or is missing home, these serving platters highlight the 28 best elements of each state. 15 of Alaska’s just happen to be snow.
This sleek, spicy candle is a perfect gift for anyone who wants to refresh their space for up to 60 hours with a sophisticated, woodsy scent but who frowns upon you bringing actual dirt into their home.
Don’t go chasing waterfalls, unless you lose this 17oz. steel water bottle down Angkor Wat’s stairs. These S’well bottles feature images from National Geographic photographers, a portion of the proceeds funds conservation, and each comes with a one-year digital subscription to National Geographic Magazine. A magazine you can read in digital form? What will they think of next?
If you’re looking for something to fill that bottle with, might we suggest this joven mezcal from Casamigos? George Clooney and Rande Gerber collaborated with a fourth generation family of Mezcaleros to produce this smooth, smoky, handcrafted mezcal that is probably not as hydrating as actual water. But it sure is delicious!
The gift of education is priceless, which means you automatically win at holidays when you give your loved one a MasterClass. Online classes are available in singing, cooking, business, basketball, and so much more — and instructors include Christina Aguilera, Steph Curry, Martin Scorsese, Simon Biles, Gordon Ramsay, and Anna Wintour. Pick a single class for $90 and stay under budget or split the cost with a friend and get the unlimited membership for $180.
Get ready for a galactic bath with this set of solar system-inspired bath bombs in soothing fragrances like blackberry and vanilla. Hey, did you get excited for a minute and think they included Pluto? Psych, the ninth bath bomb is the sun. Sorry, Pluto!
18. NASA Tank Top
If you can’t gift your loved one a seat on Virgin Galactic, perhaps a NASA tank will suffice in the meantime. This one’s soft and comfortable, with a chic vintage vibe. It’s the perfect thing to throw on after a luxurious soak in the sun.
You know you’re a grownup when getting socks for Christmas is a good thing — especially when it’s a supercool pair, like these pepperoni-printed socks that come in a pizza box. We’re starving. Can you order some burrito socks too?
Nothing says “I love animals” like a spiky mammal wrapped around your finger. This time we mean this brass, enamel, and 18K gold hedgehog ring.
This kit of small-batch seasonal extract from Woodward Extract Co. features four holiday flavors: nutmeg, Douglas Fir, and allspice. Founder Amy Nazer worked with Brooklyn distillers to craft the blends and we bet the Douglas Fir flavor would make a killer Christmassy gin spritz.
You could get someone chocolate, or you could get them bourbon chocolate (you should also make our bourbon caramel bread pudding just saying). This collection of cocktail-inspired treats from luxury candy maker Sugarfina also includes Cuba Libre gummies and chocolate-covered Maple Bourbon Caramels. Try not to salivate on your keyboard.
Gone are the days of tea that sears off the top layer of your tongue, or repeated trips to the microwave to reheat tepid coffee. This mug keeps your coffee at the exact temperature you prefer to drink it, even if you’ve forgotten to take a single sip in the past half hour.
No matter your thoughts on UGG boots and their place within society/outside the home, there’s no denying that they’re insanely comfortable. These soft and cozy slippers are ideal for winter, particularly if you have hardwood or tile floors at home. We won’t judge if you accidentally-on-purpose wear them to the grocery store, too.
Skyzone.com, $22 and up a month
A gift membership to a trampoline park says lots of things. You’re bouncy! You like leaving the house! I don’t know what else to get you!
