I loved this suggestion for a gift guide when I asked on Instastories. It’s such a good category because buying for an unknown person can be often difficult, plus it has to be unisex and within a tighter budget.
I scoured the web in search of the best things under $30 that would work mostly for everyone that are cool, functional and on trend. I hope this helps!
BLANKET SCARF | UNIVERSAL MULTI-DEVICE PORTABLE CHARGER — NOW HALF PRICE $25! | SELFIE RING LIGHT + LENS | ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER | KING SIZE BLANKET | 3-PACK METAL BOWLS | SMART PHONE PROJECTOR | PERSONAL E-ALARM | ADJUSTABLE NECK SMART PHONE MOUNT | SNEAKER SAFETY LIGHT | POM POM BLANKET | LEATHER JEWELRY TRAVEL CASE | AMAZON GIFT CARD
These things would also make great gifts for a colleague or those family members you’re not quite sure what to get.
BLANKET SCARF | I love these kinds of scarves and technically would work for both sexes.
UNIVERSAL MULTI-DEVICE PORTABLE CHARGER — NOW HALF PRICE $25! | This thing is awesome! You can sit your phone on top of it and it will charge it or you can plug in multiple devices to charge (works with various brands).
SELFIE RING LIGHT + LENS | My brother-in-law got me this for Christmas last year and it’s so awesome! I brought it with me to Montreal for my bachelorette and it helped us light photos (not just selfies) when it was super dark. Bonus, it’s super inexpensive so you could add it on to something else.
ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER | Such a great price for this and it comes with a few oils to get you started!
KING SIZE BLANKET | Possibly the best value of this entire list–what a steal! Comes in various colours and is great for your own bed or a guest bed.
3-PACK METAL BOWLS | Pretty bowls for anyone that likes to host.
SMART PHONE PROJECTOR | Okay, this is too cute and such a fun throwback for new technology. This would make a great gift for a teen too!
PERSONAL E-ALARM | Especially great for women who are outside in the dark (gets so dark early now!), this could clip right onto your jacket and is the size of a USB stick. You push the button and the alarm will sound continuously for up to 30 minutes–great and easy safety device for anyone.
ADJUSTABLE NECK SMART PHONE MOUNT | I laughed when I first saw this, then did a double take. Like waiiiiitaminute, this actually would be pretty useful. Seriously though, how often are you holding your phone up or looking down at it for long periods of time (for me: watching YouTube videos). It would definitely get a good laugh at a gift exchange party but also probably get used.
SNEAKER SAFETY LIGHT | Love these sneaker lights! Perfect for someone who likes to run outside, but would also work for dog-walkers, kids, people who walk back and forth to work. or even throwing in your backpack in case you find yourself outside at night in need of a safety light.
POM POM BLANKET | Cozy and a great addition to any household (also totally the kind of thing you want but may not want to buy).
LEATHER JEWELRY TRAVEL CASE | Love these pretty cases for jewelry when travelling or just everyday life. Would work for both genders if you went with a neutral colour.
AMAZON GIFT CARD | And lastly, when all else fails, who doesn’t love a gift card?
