It’s easy to get caught up in the spending hype during the holidays, but there are probably only a few people you really want to spoil. (To keep things nice and simple in our family, only the kids get the big gifts).

But the majority of the folks you’re shopping for this season are most likely like ours: work buddies, neighbors, gym friends, and PTA parents, with the occasional name you drew from the Secret Santa hat. For that group, you’re probably not going to spend more than $30 on a gift. But, this year, do better than just slapping a tinsel bow on a bottle of wine. Because, now you’ve got this shopping list, and we have a little something for everyone you’re gifting.

And, in all honesty, you’ll like these so much, you might find yourself shopping for some of them in pairs — you know, one for them, one for you.


Mini Spa Package

For the mother of three who could use a little pampering. This kit comes with a hot cleanser, hydrating mask and a luxurious muslin cloth to make her bathroom feel like an oasis.

Portable Bluetooth iHome Speaker

The perfect gift for the office manager who plans all the birthday parties and has an affinity for Alessia Cara. (We concur. She rules.)

We’ll never understand the obsession, but we’ll bet money that a toy drone will go over well with the kiddos and adult men, alike.
