25+ Christmas Gift Ideas for family & friends (under $50)

These are thoughtful and personal gift ideas my family would love to receive. Best of all is that they fall under $50. Most of them...well under that $50!

Ultimate list of Christmas Gift ideas for families

For a food-loving family:

  • A favorite cookbook. Be sure to include one that is kid-friendly, if there are small children. I recommend this one from Ree Drummond. Mark your favorite recipe with a little note for that special touch.
  • Create a gift set with a cookbook, kitchen towel, utensils, and cute apron from the dollar store items. Gift sets are always special!
  • Or, make a cookbook from your family and gift to others. I recommend blurb.com as an easy place to get started.
  • Think about gifting a set of videos from a t.v. cooking star. These are fun to watch as a family! Season 1 of the Great British Bake-Off is a suggestion.
  • What about gingerbread house kit or cookie cutter set to encourage family fun? Dolly Parton has a cookie cutter set. I mean...so cool!
  • Cute little holiday messages stamped into tasty shortbread cookies. What's not to love?

For a traveling family


For the coffee-loving family


For the board-game loving family:

  • We love board games in our family and this game square looks like a must-have for us! We would grab coffee, treats, and sit for hours to work on this.
  • Who wouldn't love a tabletop cornhole game? Especially those in the cold weather states!
  • Mad Libs. It's a classic :)
  • tabletop bingo. Because who wouldn't like to host their own bingo nights?
  • last year my family stumbled upon Superfight and have had an absolute blast fighting, all for the game!
  • Lazer-cut mazes that are sooo good-looking (and a great price!)

For the family that has everything:
