You can't exactly give your best friend a gift card for Christmas and expect her to think it's terribly thoughtful. Instead, consult our list of cheap thrills: Fifty gifts that are unique and luxurious, all for less than $50. There’s a ballpoint pen that goes incognito as a tube of lipstick (for the chic woman without a pen); a polka dot spare battery pack (for the friend who seems to always have a dead phone); and an azure-blue artisan decanter (for the design-obsessed hostess.) Click through our slideshow to see all fifty gifts under $50 – and we guarantee you'll find something on here for your wish list, too.
Check out the Cut's holiday shop, Shop the Cut, for our full list of gifts.
