Whether you’re starting your holiday shopping or looking for a gift for another occasion, I’ve got you covered! All the items listed below are inexpensive and great gift ideas, as they all come in under $40.

California Sunset

Personalized gift from Walgreen’s photo shop – You can make a personalized gift for just about anyone. I received a calendar from my nieces one year that was made with family photos. They were able to include all the birthdays and anniversaries and it was probably the best gift ever! A few years ago, I snapped this picture while traveling with friends.When we returned from our trip, I had this picture turned into a canvas print for their home. It made a really great, inexpensive gift!

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker, Silver (25475A)

Breakfast Sandwich Maker by Hamilton Beach – Found this one on Amazon . This is perfect for a quick breakfast before starting work or school. It’s definitely more inexpensive than stopping on the way!

NETGEAR WiFi Range Extender EX3700

WiFi Range Extender by NETGEAR – help friends, family or even yourself fix the problem of “dead zones” in their home. With everyone working and schooling from home, this inexpensive and great gift would be well received!

Frank Lloyd Wright Double Sided Puzzle

Double-Sided Puzzle – If one puzzle isn’t enough, flip it over and start again! Found this one at, one of my favorite places to shop for unique gifts.

Brainwavz Hengja - The Desk Headphone Hanger Stand Mount, All Metal, Headset Holder

Headset Holder This handy little headset holder attaches to just about anywhere and keeps your headphones or headsets… well… handy!   You can find this on Amazon

IMStick Magnetic Cell Phone Stand

Magnetic Phone HolderMy friend Vikki was looking for a way to mount her phone for video calls and I found this beauty on Amazon.  I like it because it’s small enough to keep in a pocket, purse or backpack and it’s flexible, so you can mount a phone just about anywhere! AUKEY Wireless Power Bank with 18W Power Delivery, Wireless Charger Portable 8000mAh, USB C Power Bank with QC 3.0, Wireless Charging Compatible with iPhone 11/ 11 Pro/ Xs/XR, New Airpods, Samsung

Wireless Charger: Great for traveling or home, just place your Qi-compatible phone down on this handy little device and charge without cables. It does come with a cable as well, but sometimes outlets are hard to find. Weighing under 7 oz., I would definitely use this when stopping for a bite at the theme parks! 

While many of the inexpensive (and great) gift ideas here may seem to lean toward tech gadgets, they are also pretty useful for almost everyone on your list! Customizable and personalized gifts can always be found at online shops like Chrisanne’s Life and so many of those merchants will work with you to create the right gift for your friends and family, so don’t forget about them!
