Shopping for the perfect gift isn’t as easy as Hallmark Christmas movies would like you to believe.

Almost every film features a scene where the main character and her friend pop happily in and out of boutique stores with colorful bags hanging from their wrists. In the background, perfectly proportioned snow drifts border the sidewalk.

Instead, reality often looks a lot like a list full of people who are practically impossible to buy for while navigating grinch-like crowds at the local shopping mall who are also scrambling to find a last-minute gift.

But if you’re looking for a few ways to make holiday gift-giving a breeze, you’ve come to exactly the right place!

(Psst. The Christmas Gift Planner will make your entire planning and budgeting experience so much easier!)

I’ve rounded up all my hand-selected picks for different personality types, themes, and stage of life. And you won’t stumble upon a brilliant gift idea only to experience eye-widening sticker shock. That’s because every gift comes in under $30!

Have fun, and happy gifting!
