Gift Ideas $25 and Under

My posting has been sporadic but you know I’ll never miss a gift guide season! Similar to last year, I’m going to put together three guides: Under $25, Under $100, and splurge gifts. I’m also going link to a bunch of the picks here…unfortunately it will only let me share items from retailers that belong to the affiliate program I work with, which means leaving off some of the smaller businesses that are featured in these dedicated guides. So I’d recommend browsing the posts first, but if you’d prefer to view more across price points at once, feel free to pop over to the shop page.

As always, you can go back and shop my previous gift guides, too–those recommendations still stand :)

P.S. I’ll have a separate post with sales and will link that here when it’s live!

For the entertainer in your life: these incredibly beautiful, unique twisted candles! Just tie a velvet bow and call it a day for the easiest hostess gift.

A practical yet frivolous pick for someone who snacks on fruits + vegetables a lot and could benefit from using an appropriately-sized receptacle to rinse them instead of the oversized pasta colander they’re likely using now :)

Shop

Clocking in right at $10, a perfect stocking stuffer, and a practical addition to an at-home cocktail-lover’s bar cart!

These hairbrushes have been popular in the past year, but for good reason–they’re inexpensive, lightweight, super easy to clean, and do exactly what they promise: untangle wet hair quickly and painlessly.

Shop

Nécessaire makes my favorite body lotion and I’ve been tempted to try the hand cream, too. It’s fragrance-free (J likes the lotion for that reason as well). It would be a great white elephant gift.

If you caught my Instagram Stories earlier this week, you know how much I love Appointed planners + notebooks! We’ve used them for years and they would make a great gift. The quality is high, the calendar formatting is simple + practical, and they’re American made.

Shop

Harney & Sons has the best packaging, making their tea tins the perfect budget-friendly gift. Perfect for coworkers, delivery and postal workers, a neighbor, a white elephant…etc!

Shop

A small, TSA-friendly (so great if you’re flying and something carry-on-friendly) bottle of bitters, that would pair well with a bottle of liquor or be a great solo stocking stuffer.

After years of telling myself we didn’t need “fancy detergent,” I finally sprung for the Laundress’ Signature variety this fall and can confirm that we’re now a Laundress household! It’s pricey but a little goes a long way, and if someone you’re shopping for either loves to do laundry or appreciates a clean detergent that’s a little luxe, this is it.

Shop

I love everything Stonewall Kitchen but their Wild Maine Blueberry Jam is a classic for good reason.

Shop

I keep hearing about how good this cookbook is; it would be a great gift for someone who loves a fancy salad or is trying to cut down on pricey lunches out! It doesn’t hurt that all the recipes are especially pretty to look at, too.

Shop

Fancy pasta is an underrated indulgence and therefore the perfect gift. Splurge online or at the local shop that’s too fancy for everyday but justifiable when it comes to treating someone special!

Shop

I’m pretty sure this spatula has been featured in my gift guides for the past three years but I’m REALLY obsessed with it. It’s especially perfect for scrambling eggs and baking, and we love it so much that we registered for a large GIR set for our wedding!

Shop

Another elevated basic: luxe, silk hair ties that promise not to crease and also prevent breakage. I own a knockoff version and have a feeling the real deal is far superior!

Shop

These are my favorite notepads–we have a few and they take note writing + list making to the next level! Sara Fitz has also teased an upcoming sale so stay tuned for that later this week. I’m a huge fan of their note cards, too.
