14 Awesome Christmas Presents You Can Get For Under $5

I am not calling you a cheapskate here–I would never–but I am pretty sure that, if the opportunity presented itself, you would love to give the people in your life some gifts that are cheap. Preferably very cheap. Like, under five dollars.

“What?” I am sure you are saying. “That’s impossible. I’ve looked everywhere for those kinds of gifts, and they don’t even exist. Shut up.”

But no. It is you who should shut up, for it is entirely possible to give your friends and some totally acceptable–cool, even–christmas gifts that are under five dollars. You just have to know where to look. Fortunately for you, I do know where to look, and I happened to round up the very best sub-five dollar gifts for you. Check them out here:
