Whether you celebrate Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or Festivus (and who doesn’t love the Airing of Grievances?), holiday gift-giving is in full swing. To that end, we’ve put together a few of our favorites for the people on your list.

And don’t worry, we know even though there’s talk of economic recovery, most of us are still a little light in the wallet. So we made sure most of these gifts fall securely under the $50 mark.

Happy shopping.


Cookie Fries
The Cookie Joint’s “cookie fries” make for fun meeting snacks or take-home gifts. Baked in the shape of crinkle-cut fries and served in french fry packaging, the shortbread cookies come in flavors such as cinnamon spice and chocolate toffee crunch. Accompanying dipping sauces—including salted caramel, marshmallow, and peanut butter—are served in small paper ketchup containers.


Salt Essentials Collection
What to get the food geek who has everything? Salt of course!
Fancy salt from Cyprus, Himalaya, Australia and France to be specific. It doesn’t matter if you think the salt on your French fries is good enough to use everywhere, because foodies love this stuff and they’ll think you’re completely thoughtful and brilliant for finding such a thing.

Polaroid Instant Mobile Printer
Got a friend who constantly takes and posts photos from their phone? Well now they can instantly print those shots too. Which, depending on what they’re photographing at the time, could be a good thing or a bad thing.

Picnic-Basket Set
With work and personal obligations constantly coming up, romance has a tendency to take a backseat to more pressing issues. So what better way to reignite that spark than to provide a beleaguered couple with the makings of a lovely picnic meant for two?
