My Christmas budget for this year is a little bit on the tight side, which means that I've got agreements with most people in my family of strict budgets and low expectations so that nobody is disappointed with their presents. We're not all on such a tight budget though — maybe you get a killer Christmas bonus or you only have one person to buy for so you can assign them your entire budget or perhaps you recently won the lottery and want to dish out those funds to your loved ones like a rapper at a strip club — so for those of us who can afford to spend a little bit more on Christmas this year, we present these holiday-winning gifts that all fall under the tidy sum of $500.

Don't despair if you look at these gifts and know you can't afford them, just quietly write them down on your Christmas wishlist and hope that your loved ones have heavier pockets than you. Then perhaps we can all agree that we're going to start putting a little bit of money aside each week so that by the time the holidays roll around next year we've got a lot more money to play with and won't be hurling ourselves head first into Christmas debt.

And here's a few more ...

    Funny that you mention the fujifilm instax instant smartphone printer- I actually put that on my wish list a few weeks ago! And I can attest that the coffee machine is great. My parents loved it for Christmas last year
