Canadians, start your spending.

As the holiday season ramps up, it is incredibly easy for the gift list to spiral out of control, and as the number of recipients goes up, so does the credit card bill.

But we think we've found a pretty great way to help you keep your chequing account — and your blood pressure — under control this year. The key? Look for gifts that are $20 and under, and confine the big ticket items to truly only the closest people in your life.

Sound like too little to spend? Well, we have a pretty solid list that includes some pieces no one will ever suspect of dipping below the $50 range, and with a mix of kitchenware, kids' toys, electronics and stocking stuffers, there's plenty of cuteness and trends to go around.

If you're looking for other inspiration, there's also an A to Z guide to things that we just flat-out love, and 30 ideas for people you don't know all that well.
