We're not going to lie, holidays are expensive. It always seems like there are countless people to shop for, whether it's mommy dearest or your newly engaged bestie. Don't even get us started on the gifts to buy for Secret Santas or White Elephants. Plus, with Black Friday and the extension of Cyber Monday deals, there are far too many good sales to save your entire shopping budget for others. While sometimes a lavish luxury gift is in order, not every budget (or recipient) requires such an outlay. For the women you want to wow for less, we've curated a list of the best cheap gifts that'll leave them in awe — and you with a bit of money in the bank.
Our gift guide will take you from affordable stocking stuffers for the beauty guru in your life to outfit-making accessories for the fashion-loving friend — all under $50. Our list even includes the best inexpensive gifts for the woman who has everything, like colorful tapered candles with dried floral inlays, 2-for-one and 3-for-one beauty deals, and more. Scroll on to shop the best cheap gifts for women ahead.

Who doesn't love sweet little stocking stuffers that pack a big punch? If you haven't already realized from the rise of balletcore, bows are back. Keep all the fashionable gals in your circle in check with a set of 10 dainty velvet bow clips. While you're at it, don't forget the soft, natural-looking blush from NARS or Caudalie's limited-edition 3-for-1 hand cream set to keep their hands moisturized all year long — my favorite is the lavender-colored Vinotherapist one.
