Holiday Gift Guide: Under $25 and Stocking Stuffers

Probably the most fun category to roundup gifts for is the under $25 and stocking stuffers! When it comes to gifts for friends, coworkers, hostess gifts, and more, this list has great options!

  1. Capri Blue Mini Candle – Hands down, the best candle out there. The scent is a universal favorite and the size is perfect to drop in a stocking or give to a coworker.
  2. BrüMate Can Cooler Set – A good stocking stuffer for that gal or guy that loves drinks out of cans, whether it be pop, beer, or their favorite sparkling water. It’s one of those gifts that someone may not buy for themselves, but they will use it now that they have it!
  3. EA Everyday Stud Trio Set – For the girl that loves stud earrings, give her the gift of options with this trio set!
  4. Bluetooth Earbuds – A little over $25, but worth the price! These hold a charge for weeks at a time and have great sound.
  5. J.Crew Factory Moccasin Slippers – I have these and they’re great for the price! Wait to buy them on sale, so that they’re a bit more of an approachable price, but then buy them for every woman in your life!
  6. Essie Polish Set – A nail polish set in a festive holiday color makes a great stocking stuffer gift!
  7. Laneige Lip Set – I love this lip mask for sleeping. A beauty gift set is a great option for an all-in-one gift.
  8. Anthropologie Monogram Mug – One of my favorite mugs in my collection. You can’t go wrong with a personalized gift!
  9. Champagne Bottle Ornament – The first Christmas after we were married, I started buying 1-2 ornaments that represented the big thing(s) that happened that year. In 20+ years, we’ll have a collection of ornaments and be able to reminisce on all the memorable moments from our marriage and life together! My mom did the same thing for us growing up – gifting us an ornament every year that she thought we would like. At almost 30 years old, I have a whole box of my childhood ornaments that I cherish!
  10. Winter Hat Set – One of the more practical gifts, but it’s something that your husband/boyfriend/brother/son will continue using for seasons to come!
  11. Holiday Notepad – My dear friend owns this shop and has the best notepads around – I use them every single day in my office to keep track of all the things.
  12. Origins Mask Set – Such a fun gift for the skincare lover in your life! I love Origins masks, so you can’t go wrong with anything included in this kit.
  13. Travel Steamer – I can’t recommend one of these enough! It’s fantastic for travel (no more pulling out the questionable iron and board at the hotel) and great for everyday use at home, too.
  14. E.L.F. Powder Blush Palette – A convenient palette for the gal just getting into wearing makeup or as something fun to add on to another gift.
  15. Motivational Water Bottle – A pretty and practical way to make sure you’re drinking enough water during the day!
