Eighteen Holiday Gifts Under $25

season-1985856_1280.jpg

Let’s talk about when it’s okay to be late—for a party, a dinner reservation (but no more than fifteen minutes) or to see family you hate (then just don't show up at all). But it’s NOT okay to be late with holiday gifts.

While I know it’s possible to pick up an emergency gift card at the supermarket or pharmacy—this really shows the recipient you couldn't care less . Lucky for you, it is completely possible to find a great gift without spending a lot of money or making much effort. Because who has time for that? Here are eighteen holiday gifts under $25 for every person on your list. If you’re spending more, just buy more than one.

For more holiday gifts, check out the Things We’re Too Lazy To Blog About Podcast gift guide or the actual episode.

DISCLAIMER: Prices can change, but the awesomeness of these gifts cannot.

BP Star Print Oblong Scarf

Do you have a fashionista on your list? I’ve got your gift. Stars are everywhere this season. Normally $26, this on trend scarf is currently on sale for $12.98.

Anthropologie Colorway Monogram Mug

These mugs are bright, adorable and fun. Buy a set for a family and everyone gets a mug with their initial on it, or maybe for your office Secret Santa, making it kind of a custom gift. They are currently on sale for $5.00 each.

Anthropologie Botanical Trinket Dish

Do you know someone who recently got married, is into décor or has way too much jewelry (okay, that isn’t possible, but you get my point)? This is the perfect gift for just $24.

Colour Me Good Books

Omg, I love the Colour Me Good series by Mel Elliot. Give your friend who is a fan of Ryan Gosling, Benedict Cumberbatch, or James Franco the ultimate gift. There’s also a Taylor Swift book, but it’s currently sold out. Add a set of colored pencils to make a package as complete as the subjects of these books.

Suck My Wick Candles

Candle-preneur Kyle Blitch was just on my podcast and he is hilarious. These candles not only smell good, but they also make you laugh with names like Motion of the Ocean. They normally cost $34.99 each, but if you use promo code SUCKMYWICKMAS, you get $10 off.

L’Ange Stocking Stuffer Holiday Collection

Package_02_2048x2048-2.jpg

Do you have a friend who constantly complains about her hair? This kit has full-sized bottles of L’Ange’s Rival Heat Shield, Deja Vu Dry Shampoo and Grand Debut Root Booster. It’s currently $30 but you can use promo code AMANDA for 30% off (and yes, it works for anything on the site). Or just buy it for yourself. Check out the Facebook Live I did for L'Ange to discover more of my favorite products.

Huda Contour & Strobe Lip Set

For just $25 you get a stobe (aka gloss), a liner and a matte. This is an easy idea for a While Elephant, Grab Bag with your girls or for any teenage girl.

Sephora Wonderful Stars & Eye Palette

This cute palette has nine eyeshadows, two blushes, a highlighter and a partridge in a pear tree. It’s $16, but a $48 value. I really want one for myself. So friends, if you are reading this...

Kate Spade Lafayette Three-Pack Sock Set

93EA00709_999.jpeg

Everyone loves Kate Spade, especially infants. Keep a friend’s baby or your baby stylish in these sweet socks for $20.

Kate Spade Pop By 3D Candy Tray

L875371_100.jpeg

You can use this tray for candy, sunglasses, jewelry or anything. I can’t believe it’s only $20.

Nest Holiday Votive Scented Candle

NMHB7HD_mu.jpg

Nest’s holiday candles smell like a holiday party at a mansion, but for $16, so can any apartment.

Moleskine Rolling Stones Denim Notebook

NMHB82L_mu.jpg

Do you have a friend who is too cool for everything or always writing things down on actual paper? For $25, you can make a grown man (or woman) cry.

Grill My Cheese: The Cookbook: From Slumdog Grillionaire to Justin Brieber: The Greatest Toasted Cheese Sandwiches Ever!

5135tkY6CfL._SX385_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

For the chef or someone who can at the very least make toast, this book is currently on sale for less than $12 and normally only $17. It’s also a treat for people who like puns!

Luggage Scale

fligh3013712208_q3_1-0._UX357_QL90_.jpg

Do you have a friend who has to stuff half their clothing in their carry-on at the check-in line making everyone behind them angry? For $18, you can make sure they are never embarrassed again. At least for that reason.

CB2 Prisma Gold Frames

img-7.jpeg

These ultra modern picture frames are super chic. Personalize the gift by including your own picture. It's a little more effort but totally worth it. There are several sizes currently on sale all under $20.

West Elm Coziest Throw

coziest-throw-solid-c.jpg

I need to pick my jaw up off the floor because I can’t believe this chic throw is on sale from West Elm for less than $15. You can also have it monogrammed for $9.50. What says you thought about things in advance more than a monogram?

Schmidt Brothers® New Natural Steak Knife Set

img-6.jpeg

Fancy steak knives can be pricey, but not these, which are currently on sale for $20. They look way more expensive than they are.

Foosball Bottle Openers

Especially around the holidays, there is nothing worse than needing a bottle opener and not having one. These fancy openers are from Neiman Marcus and are perfect for that anomaly of a guy who is equally bro-ey and sophisticated.

Ladies, Get It Together For Valentine's Day

Happy Tuesday! Did you realize while you were eating wings or cake during the Super Bowl on Sunday night that Valentine’s Day is a week away? Probably not. Have you bought your significant other a gift yet? Same answer as the first question. So, it’s time to get yourself together and start shopping. Valentine’s Day is not a good time to screw up this gift thing. But, don't worry about looking for the perfect gift because I over thought everything for you.

Also, let’s address the elephant in the room. You might be reading this because perhaps you are in a new relationship and you’re wondering if you should even buy him something. Of course you should. Think of Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to show you're into him, but not that you want him to propose to you yesterday. Get him something that shows you get him.

Here are some of my favorite Valentine's Day gifts for men. 

Harry’s Truman Set

All men shave. Even the one’s with Zach Galifianakbeards. One of my favorite things about Harry’s is that everything looks more expensive than it is, especially The Truman Set. It comes with a razor in the color of your choice (navy, orange or olive), shave gel or foam (you pick), three blades and a travel cover (because not having one can lead to scary accidents). I LOVE the shave gel. Seriously, most shaving products at this price point smell like desperation, but Harry’s Shave Gel smells like a fresh forest. Between us, it’s very likely you are going to steal this product from him. If you want to upgrade, add a razor stand, which is you can have engraved. Fancy, I know!

Spank The Yeti

In December, I included Spank The Yeti in my Special Snowflake Gift Guide and now I’m bringing it back. It's an inappropriate game that is appropriate for most occasions (not including Arbor Day). Spank The Yeti is kind of like F-, Marry, Kill on crack. It’s a must have for game lovers or people who like to have fun in general. After all, why would you ever date someone who doesn’t like to have fun? If you are, you might want to re-evaluate that relationship. This gift is especially good for new couples because it helps you learn more about each other in a non-threatening, completely un-therapeutic kind of way. 

J. Crew Harwick Weekender Bag

J. Crew’s Harwick Weekender Bag is the one gift on this list that cannot possibly fail. Who doesn’t need a new weekender? It’s durable and rugged, yet sophisticated. 

Hugo Boss Marros Scarf & Beanie Set

Nothing says “I care” more than helping him not freeze this winter. Hugo Boss’ Marros Scarf & Beanie Set is simple, yet stylish and will make him feel warm, but look cool. 

Wüsthof 4-Piece Steak Knife Set with Plum Wood Handles

wusthof-4-piece-steak-knife-set-with-plum-wood-handles-c-2.jpg

Nothing says you're taking a stab at love quite like knives. If your significant other likes to cook, they will really appreciate the quality and aesthetic of this set from Wüsthof. Although these knives were designed for (you guessed it) steak, they're also useful for cutting other things.

Mr. Beer Premium Gold Edition Homebrewing Craft Beer Making Kit

If your man is super picky about beer, tell him it’s time to him to stop complaining and start brewing his own. A fun project and a thoughtful gift, Mr. Beer’s Homebrewing Kit is perfect for beginners. If anything, it will give him something to do when you want to have a girls night and leave him at home.

B&O H2 Leather Headphones

B&O’s H2 Leather Headphones are so stylish might want to steal them. And by might, I mean you probably will. And yes, they sound as super sweet as they look. 

Gaiam Athletic Dynamat

For the man who’s into yoga, Gaiam’s Athletic Dynamat will be received with much gratitude. It’s designed to be longer and wider than most standard yoga mats, so he can spread out completely in pigeon pose. Add a gift card to his favorite local studio and he’ll want to namaste with you forever.

Prada Saffiano Leather Card Holder

Nothing says you spent a lot of money on him quite like Prada. The Saffiano Leather Card Holder is super sophisticated and luxurious. It's an accessory any card-carrying man can appreciate. 

Tsovet Stainless Steel and Leather Watch

Before cell phones, people used to wear these things called watches to check the time. While it’s an old school kind of gift, Tvoset’s Stainless Steel and Leather Watch has a simple but modern design.
