The third Saturday of November is always a fun filled weekend for our family. In St. Augustine this is the weekend that the city turns on its lights and the Nights of Lights Festival begins. For our family light up the nights is the start of the Holiday Season. And, the start of the holidays means it’s time to start thinking about Christmas gifts. Believe it or not, you can get gifts for the guys you care about without breaking your budget.
I have come up with 10 affordable gift ideas for guys. The first five gifts you can get for under $20. The second five are all under $50. All of these are easy to find and can really mean a lot to whomever you are purchasing them for.

These might seem like something so simple or boring but you can find some great designs out there that are fun. And we like them. Really!

A specially printed tie or something plain tie can be a fun gift and also be something some guys will use often.

These work like a hole punch except they use old credit cards and make guitar picks. Perfect for someone who loves music!
