Let's face it: During the holidays, our budgets often become a bit tight. There are hosted parties, travel expenses for cover and, of course, gifts for purchase. But not every party can be outrageous, not every holiday vacation can be exotic, and not every gift can be outrageous. We are thinking economists, after all, and careful consumables are spreading their resources.

In criticism, we never stop thinking of smart spending. Everything we try-from refrigerators in reusable straws – see through the eyes of a savvy buyer who wants to maximize their dollar. So, this festive season, we in Reviewed decided to get a list of some of our favorite products for less than $ 50. They are affordable, yes, but they are not cheap, and this is a very important distinction.

Turn back and relax – no one is in a better position than us to help you spend your money wisely. These are the best gifts under $ 50 of 2018, according to the Reviewed:

1. For the one that is hard to shop: A classic gift tradition

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears (Photo: Harry & David)

If you are the type of person who just read it and thought of himself, "Fruit? As a gift, then you clearly have not tried a Harry & David Royal Riviera pear.

Here's what you need to know: These are life-changing accessories. They will destroy your pears. You do not buy only a few pears, you get sick for their ability to enjoy natural pears forever. After eating one of these, each individual pear, soft, variety of garden-variety will crush you with frustration.

I mean, you can eat them with a spoon – that's how delightful it is. Any confusion that arises from staying in the gift of this gift lasts exactly the amount of time it takes to open the box and get a bite of one of them. I promise.

Whether it's your brother, your sister, your seven-year-old friend named Brendan or your roommate, some folks have a bad habit of getting to other people's Amazon Prime accounts. If this sounds like someone you know, you might want to consider Brendan (or anyone) three months Amazon Prime for just $ 39.

Not only is it a practical gift but also sends a message to your brother / cousin / ungrateful friend Brendan / roommate who may be time to spread their wings and start paying for things like free 2-day shipping and new episodes of The Tick on the Amazon video.

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Glass Soother Reused by Hummingbird (Photo: Review)

One of the easiest things we can do to tackle our planet more responsibly is to limit our plastics for one single use. For this reason, our Courtney Campbell has recently begun to find the best reusable straws you can buy. After extensive testing, we came to the conclusion that this set of four glass straws from the Hummingbird was the best bet for most people.

They look great, they are durable and will not change the taste of what you drink. It's a thoughtful, practical gift for the person in your life who wants to save the Earth, a baby step every time.

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Zojirushi Travel Mug (Photo: Review)

Earlier this year, we poured a handful of the most popular travel mugs into a good cage race. When the dust was installed, this stainless steel mug made by Zojirushi appeared as the champion on our list the best travel mugs you can buy.

We love how easy it is to use the Zojirushi cup and that the temperature-retaining capabilities completely exude our controller Sarah Zorn. Zojirushi is available in a ridiculous amount of color, very ideal for the face of your life that is always on the move.

Take the 16-Oz. Zojirushi Travel Mug for $ 23.99

5. For the one who needs more sleep: The most comfortable eye mask out there

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Nidra Deep Sleep Eye Mask (Photo: Review)

My colleague Jessica Tayce is not only a full-time editor here at the Reviewed-it's also a full-time dog. Simply put, when the day is over and Redford's puppy is finally down for the count, she appreciates the sleep of a good night.

Jessica recently wrote a list of the best sleep masks you can buy and the winner-the Nidra Deep Rest-mask is a total player. The adjustable Velcro strap keeps the mask firmly in place throughout the night and the foam pads sit comfortably on your face without being annoying.

"Every time I wear it," Jessica wrote, "I wake up the next morning well-rested – and in utter darkness." This holiday season, give someone who loves the Zzzs gift for less than $ 15.

6. For the serious homemaker: The best cast iron cast iron

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Lodge 12-Inch Cast Iron (Photo: Lodge / Amazon)

Cast iron cookware offers one of the most reliable and satisfying cooking experiences that one can hope for, but decrypting all of the marketing holes that come with it can be a daunting task. That's why we tried everyone and made a list of the best cast iron utensils you can buy right now. The winner? None of the favorite Lodge.

Our only complaint about this 12-inch cookware is that it is not accompanied by a Lodge Life Warranty. Luckily for the man who gives you the pan – and perhaps you – is such a durable beast of a panorama that will probably stand the test of time and become a family heirloom.

Take the Lodge 12-inch Cast Iron Pan to Amazon for $ 29.99

7. For the beginner cooking at home: A good chef knife in a great value

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Victorinox Fibrox Pro 8-inch Chef Knife (Photo: Review)

We had two goals when writing our list the best chef's knives: to identify the chef's knife (in this case, Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro) and recognize the chef's knife with the best value. In the end, we came to the conclusion that the chef's $ 45 Victorinox Fibrox Pro knife gave the biggest bang for the buck.

It's definitely not the most durable knife in the world, but the blade is stiff as a nail and strong enough to handle almost anything. Apart from how impressed he left us, this knife took over 5,000 reviews at Amazon with an average 4.8 star rating. This is the perfect knife for both beginner cooks and folks who want to collect their knife collection.

8. For the one who tries to be more organized: A super popular bullet

Best Gifts Under $ 50: Leuchtturm hardcover bullet journal (Photo: Review)

I will be absolutely frank: I have no idea what the bullet journal organization is. I I am doing I know, however, that I can not go more than two days without hearing someone reviving the virtues of the system vigorously.

This guide to the ball magazine I found on the internet seems to be a useful place to get started and the people behind the guide recommend getting this magazine bullet bullet Leuchtturm.

In fact, the more it searches bullet journaling the more I collect that this bullet journal's trademark is the best place to get started. It currently sits at an average Amazon rating of 4.5 stars to 5 with over 2,200 comments under its belt.

Our general choice for the best diffuser is also one of the most affordable and comes from InnoGear. My colleague, Sarah Kovac, loved InnoGear's colorful, adaptable InnoGear LED light, as well as the top cover of the diaphragm, which made it easier to move the diffuser without spilling water.

This is not your traditional recipe book. In fact, you will not find any prescription here. Instead, The Bible of Taste is a collection of almost every ingredient you can imagine with lists of complementary flavors and why these combinations tend to work.

love The Bible of Taste because it encourages me to deal with my food instead of working passively with a basic recipe. It's like weighing for gastronomic inspiration. while most cookbooks kindly ask me to stay on the trail, The Bible of Taste invites me to move away from the hit path and take risks. At the end of the day is not what is cooking?

18. Για τον συνεχή τικέρ: Το αγαπημένο μας πολυεργαλείο

Καλύτερα δώρα κάτω από $ 50: Gerber MP600 Multitool (Φωτογραφία: Επανεξέταση)

Όταν ο συνάδελφός μου Τζόναθαν Τσαν συνέθεσε τη λίστα του τα καλύτερα multitools που μπορείτε να αγοράσετε, αποχώρησε με δύο νικητές στο μυαλό: ένας "γενικός καλύτερος" νικητής και ένας "καλύτερος" νικητής. Το Gerber MP600 ήταν η επιλογή του για το πολυεργαλείο με την καλύτερη αξία.

Για περίπου $ 40, το MP600 προσφέρει μύτη βελόνας και τακτικές πένσες, κοφτερές κοπτικές ράβδους κοπής, τόσο οδοντωτό όσο και λεπτό μαχαίρι, το πολύ σημαντικό εργαλείο ανοίγματος για το κουτί και το μπουκάλι, ένα σταυροειδές σημείο, ένα χάρακα, , και μικρές, μεσαίες και μεγάλου μεγέθους επίπεδες κεφαλές.

Ο Jon αγάπησε το εύρος της πένσας καθώς και τη συνολική σκληρότητα του MP600. Είναι απλά ένα μεγάλο, φιλικό προς τον προϋπολογισμό πολυεργαλείο για τους λαούς που περνούν καλό χρονικό διασκεδασμό, σταθεροποίηση και μικροαλλαγές.

Αυτό το καλοκαίρι, μια ομάδα φίλων και εγώ συγκεντρώσαμε σε μια παραλία στην Ρόουντ Άιλαντ για μια εβδομάδα διακοπές.
