We’ve found great budget-friendly gifts, whether you’re searching for friends, family or the best present for the neighborhood gift exchange.

They range from fun yet practical, like a tortilla blanket, to tasty items like barbecue rubs. We’ve included a few for outdoor activities, including a beanie with a built-in rechargeable light and compact binoculars to use for bird-watching, hiking or attending a concert.

And we couldn’t forget some family games, so fun to play during holiday gatherings and to get everyone off their screens. There’s a larger version of Twister and a game inspired by words of comedian Jeff Foxworthy. 

All gifts are available on Amazon.
