NIUONSIX Weighted Wrap-around Heating Pad for Neck & Shoulders

The perfect companion to her heated eye mask. This wrap-around heating pad is a perfect gift for her, especially if she works a desk job or is prone to headaches and migraines. Just a great and easy way to soften stiff muscles at the end of the day.

  • Amazon Review: “Product itself delivered immediate relief. Good coverage. Nice and hot. Purchased more specifically for neck-fits great- couldn’t be better. Also used to wrap around lower back on top of sciatic nerve-great there also. Very happy with performance and ease of control.”

Mini Animal Waffle Maker

Unique gifts for friends, coworkers and gift exchanges

Whoever receives this gift is bound to laugh when they open it up to see that they can make seven different animal-shaped pancakes in this non-stick electric waffle iron. One of the shapes is even a reindeer to keep with the holiday theme. Plus, there are endless uses for waffle makers. So, this really is the gift that keeps on giving, especially if the recipient has kids at home.

Skil Rechargeable 4V Cordless Screwdriver Kit

holiday gifts under $50

Whether you need this in your garage or a drawer at home, a good screwdriver kit always comes in handy. This makes a great gift for any homeowner.

  • Amazon Review: “Always want one, finally decided to buy one at sale price. Love it, make it so much easier to unscrew, much better than my ratchet set. Like the bonus feature of voltage sensor, comes in handy so I don’t need a meter to check live voltage.”
  • Where to Buy: $27.99 on Amazon.


GoSport Slammo Game Set

holiday gifts under $50

I am not sure how this works because I know it as “Spikeball”. Not sure if this is a knockoff or the original. Either way, this is a fun game and great for the whole family. We have the Spikeball version and it’s a blast! The kids love it!

  • Amazon Review: “Slammo is definitely worth your time and money! It is exactly how you would expect it to be: fun, original, and fast paced. I did not believe the hype was warranted but, believe me ladies and gentleman, it definitely is.”
  • Where to Buy: $34.80 on Amazon.


Yillog Pickleball Paddles

holiday gifts under $50

Staying on the new and fun games, you can’t pass up Pickleball. I have to admit when I was first asked to play, I wasn’t too excited. However, after playing, it’s a blast! I play more often than I ever thought I would. This is a great set and the same one I own. You get a decent set for the novice at a reasonable price. Also, this set is lightweight and comfortable.

  • Amazon Review: “We bought this Pickleball Paddle Set for family fun. It is a great value and quality. It comes with four paddles, four balls, a carrying bag, and four cooling towels. The paddles are made of graphite and have a comfortable grip.”
  • Where to Buy: $41.99 on Amazon.


Retrospec Resistance Bands

holiday gifts under $50

Well, Jan 1st is almost here and you know what that means…

Yes, we trick ourselves into saying this year will be different: “I am getting in shape and working out!” Am I right?  Mine lasts about two days and then I start planning for next year. However, if you are serious, resistance band training is awesome. They don’t take up a lot of room and you can do full-body workouts plus stretching with these bands. These are also very travel-friendly and great for staying consistent with your workout schedule while on the road. They make a great gift.

  • Amazon Review: “The rubber used on these bands is very high quality, it’s not like the cheap ones that stick to and pinch your skin”
  • Where to Buy: $26.99 on Amazon.


Beer Mugs Set

holiday gifts under $50

I am not much of a beer drinker, but there is nothing like having a nice frosty mug of a cold beverage. Especially if you or your kids also like things like root beer floats. What I like about these is not only are they thick glasses, but the handle and the flat part on the handle top is perfect for your thumb to rest.

  • Amazon Review: “Great product. Sturdy and freezes well. Perfect for when I want a very cold beer. Reminds me kind of the old A&W mugs.”
  • Where to Buy: $27.99 on Amazon.


Kernel Sifting Popcorn Bowl

holiday gifts under $50

I love sitting down to watch a movie with a big bowl of popcorn. However, I always seem to bite down on an unpopped kernel during a critical scene. This popcorn bowl with kernel sifter from Uncommon Goods makes sure every bite is delicious and kernel-free!

  • Kiaya’s Review: “I love this bowl because it stops my 2 and 4 year-old from grabbing the unpopped kernels at the bottom of the popcorn bowl. It allows movie night to be anxiety-free without me having to first fish out every last kernel by hand.”
  • Where to Buy: $48 from Uncommon Goods, plus $5 off if you sign-up for mailing list.


Hydrogen Water Bottle

holiday gifts under $50

I am not sure if Hydrogen water is legit or just another fad, but I do hear a lot of people talking about how it helps with sleeping, inflammation, and more. If you are starting your new year with a new attitude, this might be something cool to look into. However, I am not a doctor…or at least that is what my doctor tells me every time I tell him how to do his job.

  • Amazon Review: “Hydrogen and water may be mixed steadily using electrolysis technology. This gadget produces hydrogen water and ionized water. It can electrolyze swiftly and alter the water’s quality in about three minutes. The bottle is suited for all types of water and makes drinking water safer and healthier.”
  • Where to Buy: $41.99 on Amazon.


Imarku Japanese Chef Knife

holiday gifts under $50

There is nothing like having a great knife when you’re in the kitchen working and this is a great knife all-around. What I like best about this knife compared to my more expensive knives is the value. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, but it has a great weight to it and it stays sharp longer than I thought it would. Best of all, I don’t feel like I have to baby it since it wasn’t an expensive knife.

  • Amazon Review: “It is probably the nicest knife I’ve ever bought, but ive never tried to buy nice knife sets before. It looks sleek and it does feel heavier in the handle than the Farberware set I have and you can just tell this is not a cheap knife from a set.”
  • Where to Buy: $39.99 on Amazon.
