Holiday Gifts for Under $50

Holiday shopping is hard — and expensive. We've made it easier (and cheaper!)

For the Hard-to-Buy-For

(Items are described beginning with the helicopter and moving clockwise.)

Give the gift of flight! You can operate the HELO TC touch-controlled helicopter with your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch ($49.99 at griffintechnology.com). For men who are flying in an actual plane, eShave’s Travel Kit is TSA-approved with all of the grooming essentials — including cream and a brush — for a smooth shave on-the-go ($40 at eshave.com). If you’re only traveling as far as the kitchen, the Bamboo Box Knife Holder ($49 from vivaterra.com) is filled with hundreds of bamboo skewers to keep your knives secure without dulling their blades. The Rabbit Corkscrew & Aerator Gift Set ($49.95 at surlatable.com) pops a wine bottle cork in three seconds and aerates it as you pour. Or revisit the ’90s with a SLAP Watch, which literally pops on with a flick of the wrist and comes in 11 creative colors, plus wilder options such as white zebra and pink leopard ($19.95 to $29.95 at slapwatch.com).
