No matter who you’re shopping for, or the occasion, finding the perfect gift can be a difficult task. Especially if you’re looking for a thoughtful yet budget-friendly option that the lucky recipient will appreciate.

From puzzles to bud vases and beyond, there are tons of options out there that are under $20 yet still make for great gifts. While you shop, just be sure to consider each gift’s style, size, and functionality to ensure you’re finding the perfect pick.

Here, the best gifts under $20.

What to Look For in a Gift Under $20
Personalization

Just because something is under $20 doesn’t mean it’s a throwaway gift. While choosing a budget gift, try to add a personal touch that’ll make the gift even more special. From zodiac signs to a favorite color, there are always little ways to ensure the gift is personalized in a way that the recipient will appreciate.
Size

While you’re shopping for a budget-friendly gift, be sure to consider the size of the item. If the gift is for a gift exchange at work or is meant to be a stocking stuffer, you’ll want to make sure the item is small enough to fit on someone’s desk or inside a stocking.
Functionality

Functionality is a key component to consider when shopping for any gift, so be sure to think about the recipient’s interests and design style. For example, if someone is particular about their home fragrances, be mindful of choosing candles or other scented items. With that in mind, you’ll be able to find thoughtful gifts they’ll actually be able to use in their home.
