It’s that time of year again. Christmas is a magical time indeed, but for many people the very idea of choosing gifts is a little less magical. You almost certainly know what you’re getting to the members of your family, but what about friends and acquaintances? Giving them an expensive gift can make them feel obliged to return the favor and they might not be in a position to do so. If you aren’t very close to somebody, it would be a bit unusual to choose an extravagant gift. So, here are some ideas that might come in handy when you decide to do this year’s Christmas shopping.

Travel French Press and Coffee Mug ($9.49)

This practical gift is an excellent idea for those who travel a lot. They’ll appreciate the possibility to brew fresh coffee and take it on-the-go without worrying that it’ll go cold. It can also be used for tea and hot chocolate.

Sweet Words ($10)


Show someone that you care with these three-letter chocolate boxes. Spell out someone’s nickname or something catchy and sweeten up their day. This gift is both cute and delicious, as it’s made of quality ingredients.

High Polish Chrome Pocket Lighter

A Zippo pocket lighter is an excellent gift for a colleague or a boss. It’s elegant and fancy, so you can never go wrong with it. According to the producer, it can be refillable over and over again. It’s designed in such a manner that even strong winds can’t extinguish its flame.


Unisex Air iPad Mini Pouch ($4.95)

You most certainly know someone who is a fan of Apple products. This useful, durable, water resistant pouch is a great gift as their favorite gadget will be safe and sound from scratches, dust and rain.

e.l.f. 5-Piece Duo Eyeshadow Collection ($10)

Any girl who loves makeup would be happy to find this amazing kit under her Christmas tree. It consists of 4 duo eyeshadows and 1 dual-ended shadow brush and brightening eyeliner pencil. This makes a perfect gift for a co-worker or an acquaintance.

Parallel Beginner Calligraphy Fountain Pen ($9)


Now, this is an amazing gift for creative people. Designed by Pilot, this calligraphy fountain pen comes with two ink cartridges in black and red. Nowadays when people have forgotten the art of beautiful handwriting and replaced it with tech gadgets, this gift can spark interest in this old-fashioned skill.

Personalized Wristbands

If you want to give somebody a lovely little gift that will really be noticeable, customizable wristbands by Amazing wristbands can be exactly what you need. Choose from a huge selection of colors, designs and sizes. Print the name of the person you’re giving it to or a cute message on a wristband you like. You can even pick a writable wristband and make your message even more personal by writing it yourself with a permanent marker.


Intergalactic Bath Bomb ($7.75)

Lush offers this amazing mint scented bath bomb packed with popping candy which will turn any bath tub into an interstellar journey machine. When it’s dissolved, the water turns neon blue. Such a gift is always welcomed as everyone likes to end a stressful day with a hot bath.


Elephant Night Light ($9)

When it comes to gifts for children, this elephant-shaped night light is both cool and useful. As we know, some kids tend to be afraid of the dark, so help them scare it away with this soft-glowing plug-in wall lamp.

R2-D2 USB Drive ($9)

The new Star Wars adventure has already hit theatres all over the world, and this R2-D2 USB drive is a supercool gift for each fan of the franchise. Maybe 4GB isn’t sufficient according to the latest tech trends, but its charm makes up for that.

Any of these gift ideas will surely make their recipients happy, regardless of the fact that they cost only 10 bucks or less. It’s the thought that counts, right?
