Our 10 Favorite Gifts Under $25
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: merry and bright, chestnuts roasting, and jingle bells!
But, let’s be honest, it’s also super stressful and so crazy expensive. Of course, we love being generous this time of year. But we also love being able to pay our bills after the tree hits the curb or goes back in the box, right?
To help you stay within a reasonable budget, we’ve assembled a list of some of our 10 favorite gifts under $25.
#1 Socks that Fight Hunger: $17

#4 Do Something Dice: $12
Remember those vultures from the Jungle Book that could never decide what to do? If you have a friend or family member like that, Do Something Dice is the perfect gift. Each die offers six suggestions in four categories: eating, sightseeing, exercise, and nightlife. You’ll never hear, “I dunno. What do you wanna do?” again.

#6 Mini Waffle Maker: $9.99
Um, waffles? Anytime we want ‘em? Yes, please! Who wouldn’t want this mini waffle maker under the tree? Available in pink, aqua, black, red, silver, and white. And if the person on your list isn’t all about waffles, check out the Mini Maker Griddle or Mini Maker Grill. (Prices vary depending on color and purpose.)
#7 Utter Nonsense Family Game: $24.99
In this card game, players combine silly accents with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous. If you’re looking for a way to avoid post-Christmas-dinner political arguments, wrap this one up!

#10 Experience Gifts
If you’re tired of giving stuff and would rather give an experience, options are endless. Check out behind-the-scenes opportunities at a local zoo or museum. Buy movie tickets and wrap them up with a big box of candy. Create a “choose-your-own adventure” plan for your loved one, and block that day on the calendar for the both of you. Find a cooking class you can take together at a local gourmet supermarket. By spending some time getting creative, you’ll give a meaningful gift and create lifelong memories. Get more ideas here.
