Listen, I get it! You wanna spoil your bestie, partner, mom, sister, etc. with something reallyyyy nice, but you also don’t want to break the bank. Relatable! We work hard for our money, okay? And though we love our loved ones very much, we also know that we don’t need to fork over tons of $$$ for a cool and thoughtful gift. Which is probs why you’re here, looking at gift ideas under $ 30. (You’re a smart cookie, has anyone ever told ya that?)
Let’s just get right into it: Below, you’ll find tons of cool gift ideas that your giftee will never guess cost less than an overpriced make-your-own salad bowl with extra avocado (moment of silence for sad desk lunches of yore) . I’m talking chic finds like trendy baguette bags and retro sunglasses to whole-ass dresses and comfy bed sheets (c’mon, that’s a lot of fabric for something so inexpensive). This is all to say that no matter what your loved one is into, I’m sure you’ll find something within this list of 30 gift ideas (a sort of 30 under $ 30, if you will), below!
