Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me, there’s always something/someone I forget. It’s nothing personal, it’s just how my brain is wired! So, I’ve rounded up 10 of my top last minute gift ideas that are under $25!! These under $25 gifts could be for you to have a few on hand just in case you get put into that awkward position I find myself in some years. You know the one where you forget your mind and forget that you’re playing dirty Santa (it was in fine print at the bottom of the invite that you “scanned” over) at the 7:00pm Christmas Party you’re literally walking out the door to at 6:58pm!! (story of my liiiiiiife). Or the time where friends say “we aren’t doing gifts this year”, but then give you a gift randomly in the parking lot of the school your kids attend right before pick up!(I know keep gifts in my car for this reason). These are the gifts that aren’t too personal, but still something any friend would love to have!
Let’s start with this scarf for starters!!
This doesn’t require you to know your friend’s size, and therefore no hurt feelings over sizing mistakes. (been there, done that). I love a fun scarf to add to my coat or any outfit and now is the perfect time to be wearing them in coastal Alabama! And the best thing is you can pick something like this up anywhere locally if you don’t have time to shop online!
But since there are still days to have one shipped……Here are a few more cute ones under $25….
Gift Idea #2 – a $25 gift certificate to the local “go to” nail salon! $25 at the salon I go to will easily cover a manicure! I always get about 4 of these during the holiday season to have on hand. And if I don’t end up gifting, I can definitely put them to use myself! So easy and any friend would love to be gifted this!
Gift Idea #3 – a diffuser. I love our’s and really want one for every room in our house. I’m running thieves essential oils in mine right now like crazy! They even make portable ones for travel which make for a great gift. You can find these at a lot of local places. Here are some that I found online that are under $25.
Gift Idea #4 – a fabulous coffee table book! There are so many great ones you can find at places like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Tuesday Morning, and even Target. …..Here are a few of my favs under $25.
Gift Idea #5 – A Candle….especially one from my all time favorite line, Nest! I love the Grapefruit scent. Although the larger ones in this line are over $25, you can still gift a mini and it’s around $16! I have sometimes scored deals on this line at Nordstrom Rack.
Gift Idea #6 – A Cute cosmetic Pouch – I am such a bag person! If you could see my purse, it’s like pouch inside of pouch, inside of pouch, inside of pouch! In my crazy brain, I think this is some type of organization! But, I love cute pouches and a ton of my friends do too! You can always find them for under $25…..here are a few of my favs!
Gift Idea #7 – Silk Pillow Case – This is the new rage in keeping your skin wrinkle free (or at least preventing some) so I’ve heard! But who wouldn’t love to lay their head down every night on some silk! I know this girl right here would!
Gift Idea #8 – A fun board/card game – the popular one this Christmas is Cards Against Humanity and I can’t wait to play it! I also love What Do You Meme”.
Gift Idea #9 – A handmade Christmas Ornament (from a local artist) – I gave a ton of these last year! I love the fact that friends will use them for years and think of you each time they get out and put on their tree, year after year! A local artist I love to buy these from is Jennifer Vickers. Also these blessing beads from Yae Beads are also a great gift idea and these local artists usually have a few on hand last minute if you need a few.
Gift Idea #10 – A beauty/skincare/haircare set – I can find a lot of these under $25 and they are always some of my most used gifts that I receive! They always have these sets this time of year at all of the local TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Target stores. Here are a few of my favorite sets for this season!
