There’s an art to gift shopping, especially when you’re searching for gifts under $25. Feeling bad for sticking to a budget? In this economy? Can’t relate. Plus, a steeper price point doesn’t always mean everyone on your list gets the best gifts. Not only is it possible to find great affordable gifts—it’s surprisingly easy when you know where to look.
A $25 budget is the Goldilocks gifting amount: It won’t burn a hole in your pocket, but it’s also enough to find a thoughtful gift for your boyfriend, a practical present for your husband, or an unexpected gift for people who have everything that’ll make them starry-eyed once they’ve unwrapped their present (though, some of the holiday gift ideas in our list are so beautiful, you can skip the wrapping paper altogether). Many of these under-$25 picks can also be considered as some of the best gifts for women and best presents for teenage girls. Bonus: The price point is also perfect if you’re shopping for Secret Santa gifts or white elephant gifts.
So whether you’re on the hunt for something for that extended relative you don’t know very well or combing through your BFF’s feed for Easter eggs to find a best friend gift you know they’ll love, we found unique yet practical stocking stuffers that will have you saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?” From cat tarot cards (yes, you read that right) to cute beauty gift sets to a glass cloud that predicts the weather (and that TikTok is obsessed with), shop the best gifts under $25, below. (PS: If your budget is a bit higher this year, we’ve rounded up the best gifts under $100 too.)
