While we’re all about giving this time of year, a little part of us (okay, a big part of us!) is also about minding our budgets. Can’t we get something nice for everyone on our shopping list without maxing out our credit cards? Obviously it IS possible — as long as we’re smart about where we shop. And that’s what brings us to Walmart today. The retailer has all sorts of chic holiday gifts that look SO MUCH more expensive than they really are. Here are 10 of our faves.

1. MoDRN Industrial Asymmetrical Hammered Water Pitcher

This stainless steel pitcher looks like it belongs in the Museum of Modern Art. Or a super high-end boutique. It holds up to 64.4 ounces and makes a great gift for anyone who likes to entertain or wants to drink more water in 2020.

2. MoDRN Scandinavian Silicone and Wood Kitchen Utensils

The Scandi-style stuff at Walmart is really spot-on these days, and these silicone and wood tools are no exception. Some stores would charge you $25 for a single tool, but here, you get a whole pack of essentials. We love this as a gift for anyone who’s just starting out or getting more serious about cooking.

3. MoDRN Scandinavian Bowl Set

We love all the Insta-worthy pottery that’s popping up on indie websites and Etsy lately, but we don’t always love the price tags that come with these pieces. A set of FOUR stoneware bowls for $13, though? Well, that’s very hard to beat.

4. MoDRN Industrial Copper Plated Moscow Mule Mugs

Moscow Mules are STILL having a moment! And we love the sleek, updated look of these mugs. (Those lines!) Throw in a bottle of ginger beer if you’re feeling extra giving.

5. MoDRN Glam Geo Candle Holder

Your loved one will have a hard time believing you when you tell her this candle holder came from Walmart. Get two and you’re still spending less than $20.

6. Tropical Toile Floral Appetizer Plates by Drew Barrymore Flower Home

Similar plates would cost you more than twice as much at, say, Anthropologie.

7. Fringe Napkins by Drew Barrymore Flower Home

We have a rule that we won’t pay more than $10 for a single cloth napkin. And these are just $4 each! We’re not sure what we like the most: the price tag, the fringe, or the mismatched color scheme.

8. The Pioneer Woman Willow 21-Inch Oval Platter

Ree Drummond does it again! This platter is fun but still pretty classic, which means it should work with any dishes your friend already happens to have.

9. Novogratz Athena Plant Stand

Your aunt who’s obsessed with plants knows that a little greenery can go a long way when it comes to livening up a kitchen or a dining room. Get her this chic plant stand and she’ll have even more places to put her little babies.

10. Abstract Vase Set by Drew Barrymore Flower Home

These vases seem very Floridian-slash-Golden-Girls to us. And that’s NOT a bad thing!

Buy: Abstract Vase Set of 3 by Drew Barrymore Flower Home, $20 for set of three
