You might be thinking it's way too early to shop for Christmas gifts, but I've personally got seven wrapped presents sitting in my closet right now. Why? Because with early holiday deals are happening pretty much everywhere, I'm taking advantage of savings now. Plus, I'd rather spread out my spending then attack it all in one go.
But what do you buy, and from where? I've scoured some popular online shopping destinations and have assembled a list of some of the best gifts you can shop now — "best" as in, you're getting the best value for your dollar. I dug around for the best sales and coupons to make sure we're not paying full price on anything. Just remember that since deals come and go, you want to grab 'em as you see 'em. I'll keep this post updated as I see more deals go live.

Best Gifts Under $5
Finding gifts under $5 is possible, you just got to know where to look. Five Below and Amazon both have a pretty good selection of gifts within this price range. As for Amazon, just note if you don't have a Prime membership, you'll have to pay for standard shipping, which is usually $6.99 (but varies based on your location). You can sign up for a free Prime membership trial to avoid these costs.
Best Gifts Under $10
Again, Amazon and Five Below have the better selection of items at prices under $10. I'm particularly a fan of the Stanley Quencher lookalike from Five Below. You can also check out our favorite items from the 2023 Amazon Wish Book.
Best Gifts Under $20
Now we have a little more options, from homeware to clothing. Heck, you can even get 70% off deals on tech for a limited time.
Best Gifts Under $30
Take advantage of timely sales at Amazon, JCPenney, and Shop Premium Outlets. Don't forget to clip those coupons on product listings when you come across one on Amazon.
Best Gifts Under $50
Luckily at this price point, you can more easily reach free shipping minimums, like the $75 threshold at JCPenney.
