We love saving money on holiday gifts everyone will enjoy. Instead of wasting money on generic presents they won’t really use, consider leaning into your loved ones’ interests and hobbies. We looked into the best unisex gift ideas, including gift baskets for the foodies, cozy loungewear, and tech accessories, plus deals and sales to help you save on them.
Walmart and Amazon had lots of inexpensive gift sets and cheap unisex gift ideas. But we also found fun finds for 50% off at JCPenney and Kohl’s. Leading up to the holidays, watch these retailers for online coupon codes and free shipping offers so you can save even more this season. Here’s our list of the 30 best unisex gift ideas for under $30.

Tech Unisex Gift Ideas
1. Aurnoet iPhone Charger 5-Pack
Everyone could use new charger cords. We like this colorful Aurnoet iPhone Charger 5-Pack ($13.99, Amazon) because it averages out to $2.80 each. A Lightning to USB cable from Apple costs $19 for a single charging cord. Sometimes we’ll see Amazon offer instant savings of up to 20% on the product listing, so watch out for that. And FYI: these sell out quickly but often restock.

2. Visual Land Soundware Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
Score more than 60% off Visual Land Soundware Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds ($29.99, Kohl’s). We were really excited about this discounted price, especially when you compare these Bluetooth earbuds to Apple’s AirPods, which start at $129. These have been on sale for a while now, but we expect the price to go back up closer to Christmas.
3. Amazfit Band5
The Amazfit Band5 ($39.99, Amazon) costs about $60 less than the sale price of the similar fitness tracker, FitBit Charge 5. Plus, we’ve seen Amazon knock the price down often in the past few weeks, with up to 30% off discounts.
4. Echo Dot
Everyone on your list will be thrilled to unwrap the latest Echo Dot ($49.99, Amazon) this holiday season. For a limited time, you can snag it for 44% off, so definitely grab it while the sale’s still active.
5. Fire TV Stick 4K
Turn any TV into a smart TV with the Fire TV Stick 4K ($49.99, Amazon). We’ve seen it for as low as $26.99 in December 2022, so grab it while it’s on sale.
6. Wireless Charging Station
We saw this 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Station ($49.99, Amazon) go as low as $23.99 leading up to Black Friday, but the price also dropped down to $29.99 in December 2022. Either way, it packs a ton of value in being able to charge up to three devices at once.
Unisex Gift Ideas for the Home
7. Maud Borup Dip Mix Sampler
The foodie in your life will enjoy whipping up new recipes with this Maud Borup Dip Mix Sampler ($9.98, Walmart). This combo pack is a steal at $1.25 per mix packet compared to other places that sell a single dip mix packet for $4 or more.
8. Cuisinart Matte Black Cutlery Set
You can save an extra $3 on this Cuisinart Matte Black Cutlery Set ($19.99, JCPenney) with an online coupon code. The total savings is 46% on the original price.
9. Sharper Image Milk Frother
Help them take their coffee game to the next level with a Sharper Image Milk Frother ($21.99, JCPenney). JCPenney’s been offering discounts on and off this holiday season, and we’ve seen the price go down to $19.79 in the past few weeks — so keep an eye out.
10. Cuddl Duds Sherpa Throw
We saw this Cuddl Duds Sherpa Throw ($29.99, Kohl’s) go as low as $15.99 during Black Friday sales. While it may not get back that low price again this year, watch Kohl’s for last-minute holiday sales. You might be able to buy it for $23, based on the way Kohl’s sales are looking right now.
11. Toddy Insulated Cup
This leakproof Toddy Insulated Cup ($29.99, Brumate) works well for hot or cold beverages, but you have to spend at least $50 to get free shipping on their site. We found the same cups for the same price on Amazon. If you’re a Prime member, you can get free shipping without having to buy more.
12. Mixology Bartender Kit
This Mixology Bartender Kit ($33.99, Amazon) has everything but the booze. Sometimes Amazon gives you 10% off when you buy two, so there is an opportunity to save a little if you have more than one unisex gift exchange party to attend.
13. Hickory Farms Tree Board Gift Set
Gift them all the makings for a great charcuterie board — including the board! This Hickory Farms Tree Board Gift Set ($34.49, Target), which includes summer sausage, cheese, and a cheese knife, is a great deal when you compare it to the cost of a single wooden serving board with a price tag of $29.99.
14. Bestinnkits Smart Coffee Cup Warmer Set
Everyone wants to keep their coffee warmer longer. Compare the Bestinnkits Smart Coffee Cup Warmer Set ($42.99, Amazon) to Ember’s Temperature-Controlled Smart Mug ($129.95, Amazon). That’s an instant savings of about $87 for going with a no-name brand.
15. Sharper Image Electric Tabletop S’mores Maker
This Sharper Image Electric Tabletop S’mores Maker ($44.99, JCPenney) is already marked down from its original $59 price. However, watch out for JCPenney codes where you can get up to 30% off this holiday season.

17. Dr Teal’s Eucalyptus Epsom Salt & Foaming Bath Oil Sampler Gift Set
This relaxing Dr Teal’s Eucalyptus Epsom Salt and Foaming Bath Oil Sampler Gift Set ($9.99, Target) feels indulgent, and the price is not bad for a bath gift set. Amazon has the same spa set for about $5 more, so you’re getting the better deal here.

An Infinity Travel Bamboo Sleep Mask ($17.50, Amazon) is perfect for your family member or friend who racks up frequent flier miles. We’ve seen similar masks sell for $20 – $50.
19. Cleverfy Shower Steamers Aromatherapy
You’re paying $3.67 per shower bomb in this Cleverfy Shower Steamers Aromatherapy collection ($24.99, Amazon). While the overall price of this set is better, it’s also worth checking out a similar packet of 12 shower bombs ($26.99, Amazon) if you really want to save. It costs $2.25 per steamer.

23. Cashmere Feel Scarf
Give the feel of cashmere without the hefty price tag. Real cashmere scarves start at $50, but we’ve seen them sell for well over $100. This cashmere feel scarf ($14.99, Amazon) looks and feels more luxurious than it is, but we’ll never tell.
24. No Boundaries Faux Sherpa Trucker Jacket
Save $10 on a No Boundaries Faux Sherpa Trucker Jacket ($14.98, Walmart). Although it’s listed in the men’s section, it makes a cozy gift for anyone on your list.
