Ad failed to load

Just because you really want to express how much you love someone — or how grateful you are to have them in your life — doesn't mean you have to spend your entire paycheck on a present. There are tons of great gifts under $30 on Amazon that are creative, useful, and actually pretty thoughtful, too.

Whether you're trying to find the perfect gift for people who are hard to shop for, the in-law you don't know that well, or the dad who claims he wants nothing (but really only says that because he doesn't want to see you spend your money), these gifts are guaranteed to delight. They're one part useful, one part practical, and one part out-of-the-box. Each one is innovative enough to ensure your lucky gift recipient doesn't already own one (but will never be able to do without one ever again — avocado slicer, I'm looking at you).

So go on: Order that soothing aromatherapy neck pillow for your partner's sister who has six kids, or that veggie spiralizer for your best friend whose New Year's resolution is to go vegetarian every single year. And stay stress-free knowing that buying through Amazon means your purchases will come pre-boxed in only a couple of days, without ever having to set foot in a store.
