11 Ornaments Under $20 That Make Fun Gifts
These thoughtful Christmas ornaments are proof that good things really do come in small packages.
In my opinion, a meaningful ornament is the perfect, budget-friendly Christmas present. It's pretty yet practical (read: virtually guaranteed to be used at least once a year), typically costs just $10-$20 and yet carries a lot of sentimental value. In turn, it's a great gift for acquaintances and close friends alike.
So, if you want to spoil a few lucky people on your list while sticking to budget, I say go with a heartfelt or hilarious ornament. Here are 11 special gems for every person and occasion.
