Are you one of those people who worry about Christmas being around the corner because a) too many friends and relatives to give gifts to, b) very less money or c) all of the above? Well, I am one of those people and the festive season actually makes me worry more than it makes me jump with joy. And you realize these things only when you become an adult. When you are a kid, Christmas presents is something you wait all year for. I feel sad for the day I wished I wanted to become an adult soon. Now I know the pain. Either you have too many people to gift because it is the biggest gifting season of the year. Or you just have less cash on you because you spent the money on, well, yourself. Or you have the worst case where you have too many people and too less money, which makes Christmas presents feel like a nightmare.
I thought the solution to this would be asking people to not get me any gifts. I tried it once and failed miserably. The reason is that people would get you gifts no matter what because it is the season of joy and people are a little extra generous. And this makes you end up feeling tinier than ever. So, I went online for my solution. And guess what, I found the perfect one – unique Christmas gifts under $50! Yes, I kid you not, but this is the best solution for anyone who is a little broke during the festive season. You get to choose from an abundance of cool Christmas gifts that won’t burn a hole in your pocket and won’t make the receiver feel weird because hello, the gifts are cool!
