50 Cheap Gift Ideas Under 5 Dollars! (Part 2)


For those who are a little tight on cash and cannot be bothered with making DIY gifts, looking for much affordable and quality gifts should be a priority. This is especially important during the holidays, where most people have a list of friends and family that would like to receive a gift. Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year are a few of the holidays that fall into this category.

This is a list of the cheapest gift ideas found on Amazon. Note that I have included only ideas that I myself won’t mind giving someone I love. Also, these gift ideas are not only suitable for Christmas, Hanukkah or New Year’s Eve, but also on birthdays or pretty much any occasion that fits.

This is part two of the series of 50 under-five-bucks gifts, the part one is found here.
