The 15 Best Home Gifts Under $50

Presented by

With the holidays in full swing, it’s imperative that we spruce up our living areas for incoming guests. Whether you’re trying to turn your home into a festive retreat for family and friends, or you’re focused on the gift of giving, there are a number of ways to ensure that you warm the hearts (and minds) of those you care about this season, especially when it comes to resplendent, residence-inspired presents.

For guys, the presentation of their apartment, condo, or home is of the utmost importance, meaning that design-savvy gifts are always welcomed. Whether they’re looking to take their interior space to the next level in terms of aesthetics, transition into a more tech-focused environment, or bring it back to basics with a new, minimalistic approach, there are a number of items that can aid in the process. The difficult part? Wading through the endless pages of products, brands, and genres can get a bit tiresome, making the gifting process seem all-the-more daunting. Luckily, we’ve got a grasp on some of the season’s most notable gifts for the home.
