We all know that feeling: You want to surprise a loved one with a great gift—butttt your wallet is saying otherwise.
Have no fear, because gift giving doesn’t have to break the bank! With some help from the Shine community, we gathered the best gifts under $20 that you can give for whatever holiday or occasion you have coming up.

3. Little Book of House Plants by Emma Sibley
For the person in your life who has a green thumb but might not really know where to start (or the one—yourself included—that might have a hard time keeping plant children alive).

Chrissy Teigen's recipies are delicious (have you seen her Instagram!?) and the gift of her cookbook is perfect for that person who wants to dive into the kitchen but doesn't know where to start.
