Whether you’re participating in Secret Santa, White Elephant or maybe you just need a small gift for a coworker or neighbor, look no further. I scoured the web in search of 25 gifts for $25 or less. Shop the gift guide below!




25 Gifts Under $25


  1. iRing ($20): Not just for the selfie takers, the iRing helps you hold your phone securely and it even doubles as a stand. I can’t live without mine!
  2. Himalayan Salt Rock Lamp ($18): Appropriate for any Millennial, this decorative crystal claims to enhance the ionic balance of your living spaces.
  3. Philosophy Amazing Grace Holiday Set ($18): I rarely purchase perfumed soaps for myself, so when I receive them as gifts, I feel oh-so-pampered. 
  4. Makeup Brush Cleaning Mat ($22):  Know a beauty junkie? Gift them this textured silicon mat to help wash away gunk and grime from their makeup brushes. 
  5. Tancendes Waterproof Travel Makeup Bag ($9): I was skeptical at first, but the sleek, unique design lured me in. The lightweight travel bag holds more than it appears and keeps each product secure inside. 
  6. Sriracha Keychain Gift Set ($17):  When you need a universally appealing present for a group gift exchange.
  7. Mario Badescu Mask & Mist Duo ($21): This under-the-radar turned cult-following beauty brand is perfect for skincare enthusiasts.

  9. Bob Ross Chia Pet ($24): Add some happy (trees) to a friend’s space. 
  10. The Oregon Trail Card Game ($15): If they don’t know the Oregon Trail game, they’re too young for you, bro. And if their favorite part was hunting bison, there’s this version: Hunt For Food.
