This was one of my most highly requested gift guides! All of these gifts are $25 or under – they’d be great for a Secret Santa type exchange or a stocking stuffer, and some of them could be combined if you’re looking for a little higher budget, too.
Thymes’ Frasier Fir candle is such a holiday staple for me – I burn it myself, and I love giving them as gifts, too. They just smell so perfectly crisp, and they burn really nicely. In the same vein, gifting a special ornament is always fun! I love this pretty stack of books, and this champagne bottle on ice is great for someone who had something to celebrate in the past year.
Jewelry is often outside a $25 price limit, but I love this sweet wishing bracelet from Catbird. The wearer makes a wish, ties it on, and when it falls off their wish is supposed to come true – it’s a cute gesture. This “jewelry as poetry” trinket tray is such a pretty option for jewelry storage, too. I also love the idea of a little lip kit. I wear these tinted balms from Nars all the time, and the Laneige sleeping mask is a cult favorite, loved by influencers and teenagers alike! I have this terry cloth headband and use it all the time, it’s one of those things that makes a nice gift because people don’t like to splurge on it for themselves. And I’ve never heard of anyone who didn’t appreciate a pair of cozy, fuzzy socks, and these come in a cute leopard print.
For gifts that are a little more unique, this murder mystery in a puzzle is very cool. You have to complete a set of puzzles to solve the mystery given to you! And this Dog People coffee table book is such a great addition for any dog lover (I personally would love to display this!).
And finally – sometimes, the best thing to do is to go with a food / drink related gift! This inital mug is so cute, it’s kind of art deco themed and looks really chic. And this Stojo is something I have and love – a collapsible, reusable travel mug! You could even add a tin of this holiday themed tea from my favorite Palais des Thes. These chocolate bars that are made in collaboration with the US National Parks sound delicious, and you can learn a little bit about the different parks while snacking, which is cool. Sugarfina champagne bears are a classic that you can’t go wrong with. And while a full-sized Le Creuset is (well) above a $25 price limit, this mini sized one is not, and is so cute!
