We’re firmly in the midst of gift-buying season, so chances are you’re making a list of people to shop for and brainstorming what to get them for the holidays. Certain people are easy to shop for—for instance, my mom and I have very similar tastes, so I just get her something I’d like. On the other hand, there are people who tend to be trickier—I honestly never know what to get my brother.
No matter who you’re shopping for right now, you’ll definitely find something they’d like from Wayfair. While known for their affordable furniture, Wayfair actually has a wide range of budget-friendly home products, many of which would make great gifts! Here are 20 of our favorite gifts from Wayfair that cost less than $50.
1. Our favorite ice cream maker
I’m a firm believer that everyone needs an ice cream maker—because who doesn’t love ice cream? This model from Cuisinart took home our award for Best Ice Cream Maker thanks to its easy-to-use design and delicious end results, and it would make a great gift for any family or ice-cream lover on your list. You can even sweeten the pot by including an ice cream scoop or other little accessory with it.
2. A big set of poker chips and accessories
If you have a friend who’s always hosting game nights, there’s no better gift than a poker set! This set includes 500 striped poker chips and two decks of playing cards in an aluminum case with foam cushions inside. There are even “Big Blind,” “Little Blind,” and “Dealer” chips—basically, it includes everything you need to host a legitimate poker night.
3. A cute statue to bring good vibes into the home
It can be tough to shop for someone who seemingly has everything, so why not get them a piece of decor for their home? This little trio of “wise monkeys” would make an adorable addition to any room, and they embody the proverb, “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”
Fun fact: The monkeys actually have names—Kikazaru, Iwazaru, and Mizaru.
4. A stack of cute farm animals
For those with a more rustic or farmhouse aesthetic, this stack of farm animals would make a sweet present. The figurine features a cow, pig, and chicken stacked up on top of one another, and it’s made from natural stone and resin. This product has more than 1,000 5-star reviews from people who say it’s an adorable accent in any home.
5. A sleek air fryer that’s perfect for two people
Many air fryers have a utilitarian appearance, but not this one. The Dash Air Fryer is as cute as it is functional! It has a 2-quart capacity that’s ideal for one or two people, and it comes in a range of pretty colors. This appliance has hundreds of positive reviews, and really, what’s not to love about creating healthier versions of your favorite fried foods?
6. A stylish galaxy-inspired essential oil diffuser
Everyone needs an essential oil diffuser in their home, if you ask me. This particular ultrasonic diffuser has a pretty galaxy-inspired design with a dark exterior that’s dotted with “stars.” It can hold up to 100 milliliters of water and can run for up to six hours, and it features two mist modes and seven LED colors. It would be a lovely gift, especially when paired with a few bottles of essential oils.
7. A whimsical set of mini furniture for fairies
For anyone who enjoys gardening, this set of miniature furniture would make a magical gift! The six-piece set of “fairy garden” decor includes two chairs, a table, a gazebo, a planter, and a bicycle. The adorable decorations are made from metal, and they’d make a perfect home for fairies when nestled among someone’s flowers.
8. A DIY kit for making kettle corn—yum!
Kettle corn is one of my favorite treats, but it’s hard to find unless you’re at some kind of fair. For the kettle corn-lover in your life, this kettle corn snack pack would be the ultimate holiday gift. It includes a stovetop popcorn maker, popcorn kernels, two kettle corn popping kits, and two seasonings—peppermint twist and sweet cinnamon. Plus, as an added bonus, your recipient will probably share their delicious creations with you. Win-win!
9. A sweet holiday doormat
Shopping for someone who loves seasonal decor? Or maybe someone who moved into a new home? Then this Christmas doormat would be a fun present! The all-weather outdoor mat is made from coir and will stand up to being stepped out every day, and you can’t deny that the tree-lugging truck is a cute and festive holiday design.
10. A stunning hanging bird bath for their garden
Pedestal bird baths are so last season. This year, it’s all about hanging bird baths like this one! The beautiful garden feature is made from colored glass, and it includes chains that you can use to hang it outside. Reviewers call this bird bath beautiful and heavy-duty, and it would be an eye-catching addition to any front yard.
11. A soothing salt lamp
Whether you believe in their “mystical healing powers” or not, salt lamps are still a novel gift to give during the holidays. Some people believe these lamps can counteract the effects of electronic devices and purify the air (it’s not proven, though), but even if that’s not true, they do give off a soothing orange light and make a fun piece of decor.
12. An affordable cast iron Dutch oven
Dutch ovens from well-known brands can cost several hundred dollars, but in our testing, this budget-friendly pot performed impressively well, earning it the title of Best Value. The Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven comes in eight colors and four sizes, and it’s a favorite among reviewers, who say they’re beautiful, durable, and highly efficient for cooking.
13. A cozy blanket to curl up with during the winter
If you live in a cold climate, you know the importance of having several throw blankets at the ready for when freezing temperatures come to town. This particular faux fur blanket looks incredibly warm and welcoming, and it’s available in more than a dozen colors and five sizes, too. I know I’d be happy to receive it as a gift!
14. An adorable art print for dog lovers
People often say that we don’t deserve dogs, and they’re not wrong. This framed piece of text art outlines all the lessons we can learn from our pooches, including, “Greet everyone with enthusiasm,” “Explore everything,” and more. It would make a lovely holiday present for any pet parents.
15. A wine decanter set for your favorite connoisseur
This decanter set is both affordable and attractive. It comes with a 77-ounce glass decanter, a glass stopper, and four matching glasses, and all the pieces have a textured copper embellishment along the bottom. It would be a perfect addition to anyone’s home bar or bar cart, and reviewers call the set “absolutely beautiful.”
16. This unique wind chime made from a bottle
Why buy regular wind chimes when you can get these whimsical bottle chimes instead. These wind chimes are made from colored bottles, and their chimes are match pieces of glass. You can choose between blue, purple, or yellow bottles, and the chimes will make a peaceful sound when they blow in the wind.
17. A drinking game for your wild friends
If you’re looking for something to put into a Yankee Swap or other holiday game, this wild game is sure to be a hit. The Shot Roulette drinking game is designed to resemble a casino game—you spin the roulette wheel, and whichever number the metal ball lands on, you have to drink the corresponding shot of alcohol. It’s a whole lot of fun, but expect things to get a little crazy!
18. A set of two rustic decorative windmills
Here’s another piece of fun decor to wrap up under the tree. These windmill sculptures have a rustic, farmhouse vibe, thanks to their metal details and distressed gray finish. They’re actually quite big—the large one is 19.5 inches tall and the smaller ones is 16 inches tall—so it really is a great value for the price.
19. An awesome breakfast sandwich-making appliance
Do you know someone who loves nothing more than a breakfast sandwich? Then they need this Hamilton Beach appliance. The breakfast sandwich maker can be used two cook two meals at a time—there are spots for your bread and a fresh egg, and you can layer in cheese and meats, as well. In just five minutes, the machine will turn out two deliciously hot and fresh breakfast sandwiches!
20. A pretty personalized cutting board
Wayfair has a whole section of monogrammed products, and we particularly love this bamboo cutting board. You can have it engraved with a custom initial, name, and date, so it makes a wonderful personalized gift for newlyweds or any other family.
