What are some cheap but thoughtful gift ideas? 

Christmas is about spreading holiday cheer and making new special memories with those closest to you. But shopping for gifts they’ll actually enjoy, or don't already have, can be tough. Although a gift card to their favorite store is easy and safe, a sentimental gift representing an inside joke, their personal interest, and their needs will go far further. 

Thoughtful gifts allow you to show your giftee just how much you know them. Whether it's a $10 pack of dill pickle chapsticks (opens in new tab) to represent their love for pickles or a $13 magnetic matching bracelet (opens in new tab) to symbolize your love no matter the distance, thoughtful gifts don’t have to break the bank. They'll appreciate your meaningful gifts and cherish them forever.
