Contrary to popular belief, gift giving (yes, even holiday gift giving) should not raise your blood pressure, induce an anxiety attack, or spark anger. Rather it can and should be quite the pleasant experience — so much so, you may even score a gem or two for yourself along the way. How does one achieve such gifting bliss? By keeping it simple. And if there’s one retailer that knows how to make a shopping spree stress-free, it’s Free People.

So whether you’re getting a head start on holiday shopping, sifting through inventories for a special occasion, or hey, simply celebrating yourself — scroll on for 24 utterly dashing Free People gifts. Oh, and did we mention they’re all under $50?
The Best Cozy Free People Gifts Under $50
Balsam Fir Candle, $48
Cold weather is the perfect excuse to stock up on the coziest buys. And while we wholeheartedly recommend cashing in on Free People’s supple fabrics — faux fur scarves, velvet socks, fuzzy bags, and the like — we mustn’t forget the potent, cozy essence of a (bestselling) balsam fir candle.
The Best Stylish Free People Gifts Under $50
For the loved one who always shows up and shows out at the annual holiday party, look no further than Free People’s clothing aisle. Yes, most of the brand’s top-rated apparel surpasses the $50 mark — but dig a little deeper and you’ll find all kinds of outfit-elevating buys. We’re talking chic layering tops, lacy bralettes, adorable knit boleros, and bold beanies.

Free Throw Crop Tank, $30
Did a gym-obsessed bestie make their way onto your nice list this year? Treat them to some new, sporty accessories for their next sweat sesh from Free People’s popular in-house brand, FP movement. It even features a few finds for those who like a little adventure (i.e. an aprés ski balaclava).
