8 Great Last-Minute Gifts — All Under $30!

Great Christmas gift ideasEven if you knew you shouldn’t leave holiday gift shopping til the last minute, relax, you can still find great presents without making a huge dent in your budget. Chances are that even if you did a thorough list weeks ago, you missed somebody or need to make a gift you hadn’t planned for.

Since this is happening to me and I honestly don’t have an unlimited budget for Christmas and Hanukkah shopping, I searched online so at least I could save on shipping. If all else fails, you can always get a gift card.

Here are my personal favorite finds for her, him and children. All of these gift ideas are under $30, some are $20 or less. Get ready, set, shop!
