Holiday Gift Guide $25 and Under

Happy late November!!

I hope you are staying warm! It’s cold in Iowa but we are seeing some sunshine today so that always helps.

Are you ready for the Holiday shopping to begin? Have you already started? I know some folks that are completely done! I totally understand if you want to enjoy Thanksgiving and think about shopping at a later date. I was just telling someone I don’t even decorate my house for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for and I want to be mindful of that. But let’s be clear, once Thanksgiving is over the gloves are off people. LOL

I recently took a small poll on FB asking my readers what they wanted to see as far as gift guides. The vote was between gifts $25-$50 or gifts $25 and under. Gift’s $25 and under took the cake! And I could not be more pleased!! It’s hard to find a decent gift under that price point these days. If you are like me and want to give a good gift but sometimes end up spending more then the allotted amount to achieve that goal -spend no more. I have looked over a lot of gift ideas to bring you some good gifts for $25 and under. Let’s do this thing!! #iamanerd

Gifts For HER

1. These J.Crew studs are normally $14.50 and are currently on sale for $7.50. (Not sure how long that sale will last.) These are the perfect touch of sparkle to give as a stocking stuffer, Secret Santa, or as an add on to a bigger gift.       Shopping Link:

2.  Who doesn’t love a beautiful coffee cup? You can never have too many-especially if they are as beautiful as this one. This monogramed cup will be a hit either on it’s own or paired with coffee or tea. Shopping Link:

3.  Have you even heard of Good Chemistry at Target? I stumbled across this fragrance line and have been totally smitten ever since. This company is cruelty free which is a plus in my book!!  My favorite scent is Queen Bee but there are several options. I love that it comes in a rollerball because it makes it easier to apply and better for travel. Shopping Link:

4.  This BP Scarf is adorable and right on trend with the leopard design. Also, it’s a steal for $19. This scarf would be perfect for your daughter, friend, or even your mama. Shopping Link:

5. Do you know someone who loves to cook or bake? This spatula from Anthropologie is so gorgeous and would be the perfect go to tool for any culinary lover. Also, at $8 it just feels right. Doesn’t it? Shopping Link:

6. This J. Crew Factory statement necklace it normally $34.50 but is currently on sale for $19.99. (Not sure how long the sale will last.) I tell no lies-I actually want this for myself. I think it would look so gorgeous with jeans and t-shirt or an evening gown-very versatile. Shopping Link:

7.  Do you know someone who loves to read? I found this 100 Book Scratch Off Poster and I think it would be so fun to give as gift. It has 100 iconic books listed and you can scratch them off as you complete them to reveal artwork underneath.                    Shopping Link:

8. These Anthropologie notebooks would be a nice gift going into the new year. Great as a traditional journal or just a notebook for reminders and lists. They are beautiful and small enough to throw in your purse or tote and not take up too much space.        Shopping Link:

9. Everyone needs a classic crossbody bag for all seasons!! American Eagle Outfitters has this saddle bag that comes in either black or off white for just $24.99! Shopping Link:

10. And last,but not least, this Sephora Favorites Best Hair Ever is loaded with some really great products!! This would allow people to test out some hair products before having to purchase the regular sized/full priced versions. It would be a great gift for the beauty lover and at $25 even it just meets the price requirement.             Shopping Link:

Gifts for Him

1.  This restorative hand rescue cream by Olivina Men would make a nice gift for a guy who has to make it through a cold winter or works with his hands. It is practical and the type of gift they might not buy themselves but will be thankful they have. Shopping Link:

2.  This orbit docking station from Uncommon Goods is worth the price at $15. It can keep your phone safe while it’s charging and once your finished you can store the cord and plug within the disk. This is a great gift for anyone!   Shopping Link:

3. The next gift idea is for the craft beer connoisseur. This scratch off poster has found the 100 best craft brews. As the beer lover scratches them off the “bucket list” they can have a guide to refer back to. Shopping Link:

4. If you have a golfer in your family or are friends with one this Nike golf shoe tote would be a nice addition. It has a handle for carrying, a mesh panel to help air out the shoes, and would be handy for traveling. Shopping Link:

5. Anyone ever play Cards Against Humanity?? This adult game is fun and sure to get the party goers talking and laughing. This would be a fun gift for someone who enjoys games and being a joker. Shopping Link:

6.  This sport style cotton t-shirt from Under Armour is a great basic that any guy would love to get during the holidays. My husband has several shirts similar to this one and he prefers them over any other brand. This particular style comes in a couple different colors so you have some options! Shopping Link:

I hope this guide gives you some ideas to get your holiday shopping underway!! It can feel overwhelming but remember it’s suppose to be fun and bring some joy into your heart. I need that reminder too:) I am hoping to get the next Holiday Gift Guide with gifts $25-50 up on the blog soon!! Stay tuned!!
