According to Buddy the Elf, one of the best ways to “spread Christmas cheer is to sing a song for all to hear.” According to us at The Quality Edit one of the best ways to spread Christmas cheer is gifting one of your favorite direct-to-consumer items. 

And because there is a lot of cheer to spread, you aren’t going to want to break the bank while doing so. That’s where this list of gifts under $100 comes in handy. Last year, the average American household spent $998 on holiday gifts. And this year, shoppers should plan on spending more because of rising goods costs and supply chain issues. 

The good news is there are ways to save and awesome gifts that won’t have you dishing out hundred-dollar bills. Keep reading for our favorite gifts for under $100.
