The guide to Christmas gifts under $50

Christmas is so close, I can almost smell the egg nog. Buying presents for family and friends can go one of two ways, it can be really easy or extremely difficult. We all have those people in our lives that are a bit harder to buy for than others, which makes it very easy to blow your budget trying to keep everyone happy. So, to help make your Christmas shopping a little bit easier, here's a Christmas gift guide for presents under $50.

Last minute gifts (for Him and Her):

MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS A gift that lasts all year round, a 12 month magazine subscription. I have selected a few different choices for both men and women, but there are plenty more to choose from at the Australia Post shop, starting from just $19!

GIFT CARDS Most physical stores have gift cards, but you can also buy heaps of gift cards from the Australia Post online shop (which is super convenient for last minute gifts). If you cannot decide on the perfect present, a gift card is a great option, especially for those that might live far away. Here are my top three gift card ideas for Him and Her:

VOUCHERS Give the gift of an experience! Have you got someone that is super hard to buy for? Experience vouchers are a great option and guaranteed to impress. Here are my top picks for everyone:
