CNN —  

We often hear about people splurging on the perfect gift, but what about a practical gift?

Sometimes, it’s nice to receive something you’ll use on a daily basis. For everyone, this could be a portable phone charger. For him, that could be a new grooming kit. And for her, maybe she’s been wanting to organize her workbag, which means a purse insert organizer is in order.

In addition to keeping the price below $30 when choosing the below gifts, we also recognize that these items, while practical, should also feel special to the recipient.

It’s a win-win for all when you can keep your spending down while improving someone else’s life with just the right present.
