Morning Show crew finds holiday gifts for $30 or less


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As many of you are shopping for that special someone on your holiday list, we know it might be hard to find something affordable, especially if you're shopping for several people this year.

We want to help.

The Morning Show team set a budget of $30 for each of us to see what we could find.

We hope it will give you some ideas.


When I travel alone, taking just a carry-on is not a problem. But when Christy and Emily go, it’s another story. So I was looking for an inexpensive solution. And I found these packing cubes. They make a great gift too!

My son is remodeling his bathroom and was complaining his shower has really lousy water pressure and all the shower head replacements were too expensive, so I found this one on Amazon for under $30.

I have a friend who wants to buy his teenage daughter a waterproof sports action cam but didn’t want to spend the money for one of the expensive Go Pro’s, so I found this on Amazon for just under $30.


If you wake with an alarm clock for any shift or you just love coffee, this is a must have: the Planetary Design double shot French press coffee maker.


Finding a gift for my 15-year-old son is tough. When I ask him, he says, “no homework," or “to be able to play with his friends on the computer for as long as he’d like." Well, that’s not going to happen!

But I did find a fun gift for him under $30: A bluetooth beanie for $12.99.

I also found two more: Inspirational pencils for $12 and a scratch art box of rainbow reminder notes for $6.22.


With my kids in mind, I found three gifts -- and each cost $25.99:


I like giving personalized gifts, so I found a blanket that you can add family photos to for $28.79.

And for those of us looking to eat healthier in the new year, you can find a Groupon for a week of Hello Fresh meals for as little as $21.
