Gifts don’t have to be expensive to be appreciated; they only have to be thoughtful. But knowing how to pick the right present doesn’t come naturally to everyone—especially when you factor in the complication of not knowing the recipient well (for example, someone hosting a party, or a child’s teacher).
Trying to stick to a specific budget adds even more of a challenge. Because no, not everyone on your list warrants a high-ticket luxury gift for her or him. For many, it’s enough to fall back on basic standbys like flowers, chocolate, or fruit baskets. But no need! Here, we’ve rounded up the best luxury gifts under $50 to suit any gift recipient, from foodies to fashionistas and everyone in between.
