Below, we’ve rounded up 15 little gifts they’ll love, all for $25 or less. So, if you’re stuffing a stocking or giving a gift on the 6th night of Hanukkah, keep reading. All of these picks prove that you don’t need to spend a fortune to make someone feel special this holiday season.
Funky Stud Earrings ($20)
Creating the perfect earscape is an art. It’s a subtle, but fun way to show off one’s style, and maybe even interests or passions. For little earrings they’ll be giddy about receiving, Studs is the go-to. The aptly-named brand has tons of cool studs for $20 or less. From simple gold balls to colorful, enamel smiley faces, minimalists and maximalists alike are guaranteed to find something they’ll love in the selection.
Luxe Body Lotion ($25)
I know what you’re probably thinking...lotion? Yes, lotion. This stuff feels luxurious in every sense of the word. The chic, shelfie-worthy minimalist packaging, the natural, nourishing ingredients, and a silky-smooth texture that skin soaks right up. Anyone with an epidermis will appreciate this one.
A Colorful Pair of Socks ($18)
Socks are the ultimate holiday gift. Everyone needs them, but most people don’t want to spend too much on a pair of socks for themselves. That’s where you come in. Comrad’s Ankle Compression Socks are lightweight, breathable, and are designed with genius details (like extra heel padding and slide-free cuffs) that’ll keep their toes comfortable all day long. We love the colorways too.
A Set Of Silk Scrunchies ($15)
A simple, but chic upgrade anyone will be appreciative of. These silk scrunchies from Slip are so gentle on hair and help prevent creasing and breakage. They come in tons of colors and patterns, and they’ll look really nice hanging out on their wrists. Plus, there’s something about silk that just feels automatically luxurious.
A CBD Flight ($20)
The holiday season stress is real. Hosting people, cooking + meal-prepping for days, spending hours on zoom connecting with family and friends -- it takes it toll. Help them wind down and relax with The Flight by Feals. The perfect entryway into CBD, The Flight features three servings of Feals’ full-spectrum CBD oil in three different strengths, so they can find the CBD that feels best for their body.
A season full of late nights, holiday treats, and festive libations takes its toll on skin. So, who wouldn’t love this cooling, de-puffing jade roller? It’s the perfect size for travel -- so they can take it with them for soothing self-care wherever they go. Hot (or cold) tip: tell them to store it in the freezer for an even more rejuvenating experience.
A Reusable Bag ($12)
Everyone needs a good reusable bag. Baggu makes some of the best on the market. Each bag can hold up to 50 pounds and is made of recycled ripstop nylon, so they never have to worry about the bag breaking when they load it up with groceries, laundry, or whatever they decide to use it for. When it's empty, the bag can be folded down to fit in their pocket. Did we mention it’s machine washable and comes in over 60 fun colorways too?
If they always talk about wanting to get more into skincare, but can’t bear the thought of a 10-step nighttime routine, this is the perfect gift. The Happy Dance CBD Coconut Melt can be used as a makeup remover, hair mask, skin moisturizer, cuticle oil, and post-shave cream. With just two ingredients (coconut oil and CBD) this product will simplify their skincare regimen and keep them smelling like a tropical breeze.
Hand sanitizer is here to stay, so why not treat them to one they’ll really enjoy using. The Touchland Power Mist won’t dry their hands out, has no alcoholic smell, and won’t leave behind a sticky residue. The super-fine mist makes it easy to get an even coat of sanitizer every time. And, look at this packaging? That, paired with the colorful liquid and fun scent combinations, makes for a sanitizer they’ll get excited about.
Even coffee connoisseurs need a break from brewing sometimes. Jot is an ultra-concentrated liquid coffee -- just one tablespoon of the stuff has the same amount of caffeine as a strong cup of black coffee. They can add Jot to hot milk to make a latte, cold water for a classic iced coffee, or even on top of ice cream for an affogato. The options are endless and delicious. Even the biggest coffee snob in your circle will approve.
Flavored lip balm sets were one of my absolute favorite gifts growing up. I collected Lip Smackers like it was my job. I like to think of the Tower28 ShineOn Lip Jelly as the adult version of those. The colors, names, and packaging have all of the whimsy of their favorite childhood lip glosses, with shades and a nontoxic formula that take things to the 21st century. I have a feeling this gloss will live in their bag until it’s empty --it’s that good.
Your favorite jetsetter will thank you for this new way to stay organized. Cadence’s capsules are refillable organizational containers that can be used to store anything from jewelry to facial moisturizer. Each pod is airtight, waterproof, BPA-free, and each side is magnetic so they can buy as many as they’d like and stick them together to create their own little organizational honeycomb. When they’re not on the go, these still make for super functional storage. You can even add a free custom label, making this a perfect personalized gift.
A warm, frothy latte is one of life’s simple pleasures. Golde’s latte blends are loaded with superfoods like matcha, cacao, and turmeric. Even better, they’re super easy to make. All they have to do is blend the sachet with water, milk, or any liquid of their choice.
You can never go wrong with gifting face masks. Not only are they practical, but they’re fun to use and make for an excuse for a little self-care time, which everyone deserves over the holidays. This set from Loops comes with five masks that address all different skin concerns like anti-aging, dryness, and dullness.
A Fresh, Zingy Vinegar ($22)
Any home cook worth their salt understands the magical powers of acid. Acid brightens and balances flavors in everything it touches, from salad dressings to stir fries. This zesty champagne vinegar from Brightland will add a bright, slightly citrusy flavor to everything they make. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get to try some of the fruits of their labor.
