Gift-giving is a skill. (Ask anyone who’s ever given socks as a present; they’ll probably agree with you.) It takes foresight and patience to decide on the perfect gift for a loved one — but when your budget limits you, it can feel almost impossible to pick out the right thing. Still, there are tons of affordable fashion gifts out there that feel just as personal as something with a hefty price tag. 

Have a friend who’s always asking you to take her outfit photo? Gift her a disposable camera, then offer to get the film developed. Shopping for a family member who’s always losing her AirPods? Gift her a chic case that she’d be hard-pressed to lose track of. Can’t think of anything for the friend that just moved upstate? A chunky wool scarf should come in handy. 

Ahead, 21 smart, budget-friendly fashion gifts for everyone on your list.
