Where to buy holiday gifts for under $50 in metro Detroit


Sometimes our hearts are bigger than our wallets, especially when it comes to gift-giving this time of year. And while pandemic shopping has been made all too easy — and impersonal — with Am*azon, metro Detroit shops and restaurants have been putting in the hard work to make sure they survived long enough to serve the community during the holidays. So, let's support them! Don't worry, you don't have to spend an arm or a leg (or your savings aka your Beanie Baby collection) to shop locally and thoughtfully. For this year's gift guide, Metro Times took our hard-hit budgets into consideration and discovered a whole Christmas list's worth of gifts all for under $50, all of which can be found in metro Detroit. While some stores remain open for in-person shopping, most, if not all, offer online/phone ordering for the homebound gift-giving experience.
