When shopping for gifts, balance is key. After all, when the goal is to treat your loved ones, it’s easy to go overboard — and splurging out on everyone can leave a serious dent in your wallet. Luckily, sticking to a reasonable budget doesn’t require you to hand out presents you’re less than proud of. By choosing gifts that seem expensive but are actually affordable, you can genuinely impress the people on your list without maxing out your credit card in the process. For example, it’s shocking that these 51 amazing gifts cost less than $40 on Amazon — stick with gems like these, and when it’s all over, you’ll still have enough money left to splurge on yourself.

Although the products on this list span the categories of fashion, beauty, home, and more, they all have at least one thing in common: they cost $40 or less, but you'd never guess that by looking at them. Each and every item was carefully selected based on its quality, appearance, and customer reviews — and of course, their potential to make a great gift (whether it's for a family member, a friend, a coworker, or a special someone you only recently started seeing).
