Holiday Gifts Under $25

It’s gift guide season! I know everyone’s enthusiasm levels for the holidays are very different right now (I get it) but I am pretty ready for some holiday spirit. I am also last minute with EVERYTHING, so launching my gift guides now helps me get a little ahead of the game.

Similar to last year I am going to be splitting my gift guides up into categories by price. This was popular and hopefully helps everyone work with their budget. The gift guides this year are for gifts Under $25, Under $50, Under $100, Over $100, Books, and Heirloom Gifts. In each guide you’ll find gift ideas for everyone on your list, from grandparents and teachers to toddlers and friends. All of my gift guides include women-owned, BIPOC-owned and small businesses, along with many sustainable and eco-friendly gift ideas.

I love to encourage shopping local. Small retail businesses are the lifeblood of our communities and holiday shopping is always a wonderful way to support them.

Here are holiday gifts under $25.

Beauty Gifts Under $25

Jones Road Just A Sec

Jones Road Just A Sec

These shimmery Jones Road cream powder eye-shadows are so perfect for the holidays. They add that extra touch of holiday glam to your normal make-up routine but are just as good for everyday. Gift one to a friend, co-worker or MIL.

Nécessaire Hand Cream

Nécessaire Hand Cream

The best no-fuss hand cream out there. Especially in the winter I make sure to always have this on hand. It’s super nourishing, absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy. Even Craig uses it, and he likes that it’s not scented.

Kosas Lip Balm Trio

Kosas Lip Balm Trio

We absolutely love this lip trio from Kosas. Anyone who likes a functional, hydrating lip balm with the dual effect of both shine and subtle color makes this the perfect gift trio for easy everyday natural make-up lovers.

Talula Skincare Body Butter

Talula Skincare Body Butter

This Black, woman-owned brand is always at the top of my gifting list. The body butter is rich, creamy and moisturizing without being greasy and great for sensitive skin (including eczema). Comes in scented or unscented.

Brightland Vinegar

Brightland Vinegar

A BIPOC, woman-founded brand, Brightland has incredible oils and vinegars, made in California. I’ve tried both their balsamic and champagne vinegars. They’re delicious in dressings and for cooking. A great gift for anyone on your list who loves to cook.

Overseasoned Amy Dishcloth

Overseasoned Amy Dishcloth

We love this woman-owned small business. Their dish towels are amazing with great prints, fabric and functionality. They have fun slogans that would make the perfect gift for all the progressives or political junkies in your life.

Hand Painted Candles

Leave it to Etsy to have the most incredible hand painted taper candles. This shop has tons of festive holiday designs to choose from. What a gorgeous gift, especially for someone that’s hard to buy for!

Swedish Dishcloths

Swedish dish cloths make a great stocking stuffer and there are so many fun prints and designs to choose from! A totally functional and fun gift– you can’t go wrong. This set of 10 is a great value.

Kids Gifts Under $25

Mudpuppy 4-In-A-Box Puzzles

Mudpuppy 4-In-A-Box Puzzles

I love Mudpuppy books and puzzles. Marin loves the book sets, games and puzzles. Puzzles with 4, 6, 9 and 12 pieces provide different challenges for kids showing sweet scenes of kindness.

Yeti Rambler Junior

Yeti Rambler Junior

This YETI Rambler Junior is another great practical gift for kids. We are always looking for a water bottle to send to daycare or on an outing. It’s super sturdy and stainless steel.

Animal Paw Slippers

Animal Paw Slippers

The Toddler Gripper Slippers are so cute, comfortable and functional for our little ones. The grippers keep them from slipping and the slippers are warm and cozy for the cool winter ahead. A great gift for toddlers and kids.

Skida Alpine Neckwarmer

Skida Alpine Neckwarmer

You may remember the Skida neckwarmer from last winter, one of my favorite cold-weather accessories. They have styles for kids too. Marin actually loves wearing her neckwarmers and I love that they keep her face warm and protected from the bitter cold.
