Best Gifts Under $25

A couple weeks ago, I asked you guys on Insta if you wanted to see gift guides and what type of guides you wanted to see. A bunch of you asked for guides under $30, so I thought it would be fun to put together a guide for under $25! These presents will work well for pretty much anyone on your list, and best of all, they won’t break the bank!

I went into Marshalls to look for a few gifts and when I left I had crossed off at least a dozen people on my list. They have the cutest gift sections and a wide variety of designer merchandise for great prices. I love all the holiday decor and wrapping – it always makes me feel so festive! From stocking stuffers to large items, the options are endless, and there’s nothing better than seeing the excitement on someone’s face when they open your gift.

I feel like I always end up holiday shopping up until right before Christmas, but this year I had a few people on my list who I wanted to deliver presents to before the 25th, so here are 10 gifts under $25 for this holiday season.

FOR THE HOSTESS: Festive hand towels (love this cute print that’s perfect for this time of year!) or a yummy candle to set the mood for their next event. You never want to show up empty handed to a holiday party, and hosts always appreciate the thoughtful gift. There are so many options at Marshalls at incredible prices, from kitchen accessories to home decor and more.

FOR THE MAILMAN (or woman): Gifts to keep them warn. It’s easy to overlook your mailman since you probably don’t get a lot of face-to-face time, but don’t forget them during the holidays! Here in Utah, the winters are pretty cold and snowy. A good thermos or something to keep him/her warm during the winter like a hat, scarf, or mittens won’t go unappreciated (or unused).

FOR THE BOSS: Pretty office decor. What better way to get on your boss’ good side right before your Christmas bonus than giving them a gift for the holidays? I found all these pretty ceramic pieces at Marshalls and loved the look of all of them! So hard to choose.

FOR THE NEIGHBORS: Gourmet kitchen accessories. What better way to say ‘invite me over for dinner’ than with gourmet accessories? Joking aside, you can’t go wrong with pretty staples – even something as simple as really nice pepper and salt grinders or a cute mason-jar cookie kit that the whole family will love!

FOR THE KIDS: A fun Christmas game. Half of the fun of the holiday season is the anticipation building before the 25th, so a holiday-themed board game is a great way to get the whole family in the Christmas spirit. Our schedules are busy, particularly during this time of year, so we’re always looking for ways to slow down and just spend time together. (Plus bonus points for letting the kids open something early πŸ˜‰

FOR THE NIECES & NEPHEWS: Your favorite Christmas book. I love all the Christmas classics, so getting one of your favorites for your nieces and nephews is a fun tradition.

FOR THE TEACHER: Portable Speakers. Don’t forget to get your kids’ teacher a little surprise before winter break! The sky is the limit for teacher gifts.Β  I love this cute, sleek portable speaker they can set on their desk for any lessons or to listen to their favorite playlists during breaks and after school.

FOR YOUR S/O: Phone chargers. Is it just me, or do phone chargers disappear all the time? Cody and I always seem to lose our chargers, but with all of the hustle and bustle of the season, it gets even harder to share your charger. Skip it as a stocking stuffer and give your S/O a new extra long charging cable they can use during the season and all year. It’ll be especially useful on any upcoming trips.

FOR SANTA: A milk and cookie set. I love the chalkboard detail on this gift that let’s you personalize a message! Set Santa’s cookies out a few nights early and leave him a special note! I’m sure his little elves (or any little kids) will have fun getting to sample the cookies before Santa comes on Christmas morning.

FOR YOUR DESK-MATE: There’s nothing worse than being caught without a gift when someone gets you something, so always be prepared! You never know when it comes to coworkers, so have a couple great basics available. A hand lotion gift set is perfect and also love this pretty soap!

Who am I missing guys? Do you have any one else on your Christmas gift list? Check out Marshalls’ website for more gifting tips.
