Gift Guide: 20 Gift Ideas Under $25

We all wish we could splash money around and buy our loved ones all the gifts they ever dream about. But let’s be real, at this point we’re all looking at our own lists and trying to decide if we should ask for things we need, instead of fun things we actually want.

That’s why I’ve put together this gift guide of 20 ideas all under $25.  Keeping on a budget doesn’t mean you have to give up cute, fun, & functional!

1. Veggie Spiralizer

This is a more practical gift, but it’s also one people might be apprehensive about buying for themselves. This gift will give them the chance to try something new and change-up their meal routines!

2. Rose Gold Manicure Set

Having a small nail care set to carry around is so helpful! It’s also something that gets banged around and never replaced. This rose gold set is soo cute & with a hard case it can hold up to whatever you put it through. A great stocking stuffer idea!

3. Copper Fairy Lights

Fairy lights are so fun to decorate with, and the copper wire of this one makes it easy to form into whatever shape you need it to! This is perfect for a friend who wants to brighten up a dorm or new apartment.

4. Marble Travel Mug

Whether you have to start your day with coffee or tea, this adorable and classy mug will help you get going on the right foot. It even has its own tea infuser!

5. Cinema Light Box

How fun would this be to play with and leave messages on?!

6. Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone 

For the singers you know, or the ones who like to pretend, this Bluetooth karaoke microphone is a guaranteed hit for fun times.

7. Adult Coloring Books

These things have made a comeback for a reason, it’s the perfect gift for just about anyone. I personally like to use them when I need to step back, relax, and focus on something mindless for a bit.

8. ‘I Am Very Busy’ Tote Bag

For the friend who is always on the go. Or the friend who carries their entire life with them. Or the friend that just doesn’t want anyone to talk to them.

9. Light Up Makeup Mirror

This mirror is so cool with its portability, back-lighting, and kickstand to ensure the perfect makeup application conditions no matter where it has to take place.

10. Photo Clip Light String

With this you don’t have to pick between decorating with pics or lights. These light strings have photo clips attached for the perfect aesthetic.

11. ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ Business Card Holder

For the hustler, or the #girlboss, this cute case would be a perfect way to let a friend know you’ve got their back 100% on whatever their crazy dreams may be.

12. Bath Fizzies Gift Set

This is the ‘treat yourself’ gift. For the friends who need/like to take some time to themselves. Also good for yourself after getting through the holiday season & the end of the year.

13. Silicon Kitchen Utensil Set

For a more practical gift, this utensil set is still fun. I know I’ve got a lot of friends trying to figure out their way around a kitchen for the first time trying to make do with whatever they can piece together and steal from their parents kitchens lol.

14. ‘All In Good Taste’ Kate Spade Book

If you’ve got a Kate Spade kind of girl in your life (it’s totally me) this book is SUCH a good gift! A ‘guide’ for a modern-day hostess, there’s a wide variety of topics covered and it looks gorgeous on a coffee table.

15. Sports Earbud Headphones

The holidays are always the time of year I stock up on headphones, and that definitely means different kinds for different occasions. This pair is sweat resistant and made for sports/working out!

16. Light-Up Cocktail Shaker

For the 21+ over crew, add some color to your parties! This light-up cocktail shaker is a must for the hostess in your life.

17. Wooden Block Calendar

An absolutely adorable way to keep track of the year, this wooden block calendar is a gift that works for anyone!

18. Knit Beanie 

A simple but cozy gift perfect for Winter. No one ever has too many beanies!

19. Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

Some people just always need music, and those people need a portable Bluetooth speaker to make sure they can listen anytime, anywhere.

20. Inspirational Cards + Wooden Stand

If you’ve got a friend that needs a little encouragement, these cards are the perfect thing to make sure they always have an inspiring message.

      I wasn’t sure how much I would use one when I first got it, but I’ve found so many recipes and uses for it! Personally, making curly fries is my favorite use 🙂 This is the perfect time to try something new!

      I’ve actually tried the cheaper version of this brand, with only 3 blade options, and it worked for me for over a year before I upgraded! So yes I definitely recommend this one!!

    I love the photo clip light string. There’s just something about hanging up pictures that reminds me of decorating my room when I was a teenager.
