Amazon Holiday Gift Guide

The 50 Best Gifts on Amazon Under $50 to Shop Early This Year

Don’t risk 2020’s long shipping times and anticipated sell-outs.

The season of giving is gaining on us, and this year's many curve balls mean our deadline for buying gifts is even sooner than we're accustomed to. While it may be customary to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to handle present shopping en masse and at a discount, pandemic-related complications could mean slower shipping times, more product sell-outs, and running the risk of an empty-handed gift exchange.

Rather than rolling the dice on 2020, we're outsmarting the odds this year by playing early and handling our shopping lists today. But that doesn't mean paying a premium: Amazon's across-the-board low prices mean the deals happening now are competitive with those expected from the upcoming shopping holidays.

We've carefully selected 50 of the absolute best gifts on Amazon that are $50 or less and guaranteed to win over your best friend, mom, white elephant coworker, or, honestly, yourself.
