59 Best Gifts Under $30

Ad failed to load

Sometimes, $40 dollars just seems like too much to spend on products. Usually around the first of the month (rent time of course!), I'm not ready to drop two $20 bills, but I still can't help but want to buy stuff. That's me, and that's why I can't resist genius things on Amazon under $30.

Somehow, I can totally reason why $30 is the perfect amount to drop while I'm on, say, a delayed subway that miraculously has phone service and I just paid my electric bill. But when I find things that are actually brilliant and will change my life for the better? Well, somehow $30 doesn't even seem enough. I'm talking about an avocado tool that makes guacamole instantly without cutting my fingers when I try to get the seed out, an aromatherapy wrap that warms my sore muscles, and a shampoo made from charcoal. It does great things for my hair, but it also looks cool in my shower. That's the kind of stuff that's really priceless.

These clever products are all under $30, and they're worth the price tag — and you'll still have a little extra to keep in your wallet, before you ultimately spend it on something you don't even want, like a bottle of Kombucha. Just saying.
