Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves: We are approaching peak gifting season. Some of us have been waiting all year for this moment, listening to the small hints and clues dropped by our friends and family for the presents they want the most, eager to surprise and get it just right. And some of us... well, let's just say some of us are less organized.

Whatever camp you fall into—whether you have a closet full of already-wrapped gifts ready to go, or are just starting to realize that it's not summer anymore—the reality is that there are people we left off our initial gift lists, or people who have stumped us in identifying the ideal present, or people we just met who we'd like to celebrate with a token of holiday affection. For all these circumstances (and more: Think friendly postal worker, regular barista, favorite colleague, next-door neighbor), we've put together a handy guide to the gifts in our Shop that are all under $50 each. There's something for everyone, without breaking your budget.
