Security, style and simplicity for under $30? We can help with that. Try these gift ideas if you’re on a budget or need a stocking stuffer.


180-Degree Flashlight

This wide-beam light makes any under-the-sink, beneath-the-car, in-the-dark-garage project easier than ever. It even comes in a mini version with a lanyard. Perfect for DIYers who work in less-than-ideal lighting conditions.

eTape16 Digital Tape Measure

Help your loved one get it right the first time with this digital tape measure that also saves the last measurements, converts inches from feet and more. Perfect for tech-savvy DIYers and those who want to make “measure twice, cut once” easier than ever.

USB Wall Charger Night Light

There’s something for everyone with this two-in-one solution that lets you charge multiple smart devices and find your way around at nighttime. You can rest easy that the loved one who receives this gift will be less likely to stumble in the dark. Perfect for kids, older adults concerned about mobility and balance, and travelers.

Craftsman Magnetic Pickup Tool

A bolt dropped somewhere under the hood of the car, a screw fallen behind the sink, a nail slipped through a crack in the deck. Whoever gets this gift can retrieve lost items easily with this ultra-magnetic tool. Perfect for mechanics and handymen with a slippery grip.

Home Spa

Not everyone can afford a day at the spa or even a gift card to help them get there. If that’s the case, try creating an at-home spa basket with bath oils, bubbles and a candle in their favorite relaxing scent. Perfect for overworked parents, new homeowners with sore “box-lifting” muscles and the luxury-on-a-dime set.

Ice Roller

Help your loved one practice self-care on a budget. This roller helps reduce puffiness around the eyes for a fresh face every day. Even better, it can help with migraines and other daily headaches. Perfect for those who need a little refresh and fans of at-home spa treatments.

Silicone straws

These budget-friendly silicone straws, plus squeegees for easy cleaning, will help them eliminate single-use plastics and still enjoy those brunch beverages or cool drinks on the porch. Perfect for those who are committed to sustainable alternatives but don’t want to compromise on style or convenience.

Savvy Infusion Water Bottle

If the smart water bottle is a bit steep for your budget, try this infusion bottle instead. Dishwasher-safe and available in several colors, this is an easy way for your loved one to stay hydrated and add a bit of flavor to their water at the same time. Perfect for healthy eaters and drinkers, and those who like to stay active and on the go.

Magnetic Dry Erase Calendar

Whether they’re creating a family command center or simply need a calendar for the fridge, most people could use a little help getting organized. Try this dry erase option to help your loved ones reduce chaos and stress. Perfect for busy families and the mom (or dad) who does it all.

Window-mounted birdfeeder

If your loved one likes to do a bit of birdwatching from the comfort of their own home, they need this clear plastic birdfeeder. It’s one of the easiest to set up. They just stick it to a window using suction cups, no need to drill into or hang from a tree. Perfect for bird lovers and house cats.
