Between white elephant gift exchanges and last minute holiday parties, it’s important to have a go-to list of affordable gifts to draw from. Here are my favorite gift ideas under $25.
1) California Dish Towel
How adorable are these U.S. of A. dish towels? I love their whimsical silk screen illustrations and hand embroidered embellishments.
2) Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
The first time I had Meyer lemon olive oil was on a trip to Palm Springs and I seriously wanted to eat the entire bottle. Fresh and zesty, it has an amazing flavor that will be the highlight of any dish.
3) Cat Eye Mask
This Japanese designer makes beautiful unmentionables you’d find in a French boudoir, and her accessories are the perfect bedtime accent.
4) Agate Trivets
These colorful trivets can be used as coasters, underneath pottery or as stand-alone tabletop accents.
5) iPhone Case
I’m an old school girl and this rotary dial phone cover takes me back. Waaay back. Back into time.
6) Dual Nail Polish
This pretty nail polish pen gives you a pop of color AND gold sparklies. Sold.
7) Zebra Dish
The cutest way to display your tiniest things.
Illustrator Judy Kaufmann created this colorful wallet of famous people. Anything with a sketch of David Bowe is a wallet I want to own.
9) Floating Earrings
The optical illusion of these earrings is stunning yet understated. Every time I wear them I get compliments.
10) Slushy Maker
Pop the inner core in the freezer for 8 hours and then add your own liquid and stir. Voila! Instant slushies, milkshakes or smoothies.
11) Flavored Marshmallows
Made from sweet, magic air these pillowy confections take a cup of hot cocoa to the next level.
12) Humbug Tote Bag
Bah Humbug? Never! But a bah humbug handbag? Too cute to pass up.
