Gift ideas for under $50 on Rewardhub

If you’re like us, chances are you’ve already blown your Christmas budget and wondering how to create the most impact for the least amount of dollars. Sound accurate?

Besides, giving decent gifts shouldn’t cost you the earth. It’s the gesture that counts.

But if you’re overwhelmed with all the deals, discounts and deals being advertised all over the place and simply can’t see the wood from the trees, you might find yourself down with a case of too-many-option fatigue; when having too many options becomes counterintuitive and you’re left grappling to make a decision.

So, what is overchoice fatigue and how do you know if you have it? Overchoice happens when having too many equally good options becomes mentally draining because each option comes with its own potential outcomes and risks and you have to weigh them up against one another. Yeah, we’re puffed from just reading this paragraph too.

Cut through the noise and snap up one (or all) of these incredible gift ideas under $50 for the outstanding loved ones on your list. They’re all available via Rewardhub which means your dollar gets to go even further, with these brands making donations on your behalf to causes in need.
