Gifts under $25 for any party!


The holiday season can be a strain on your pocketbook. Considering the current economic climate, it may be even more apparent this year than in the recent past. But there are still plenty of inexpensive holiday gifts you can give this year - even for under $25 - that will help ring in the holiday cheer!

Godiva Chocolate - Godiva offers a number of chocolate selections for under $25. It's not only a delicious product, but receiving chocolate in a little gold box is about as iconic as receiving jewelry in a little blue box. Visit to see the various selections.

Bottle of Wine - A bottle of wine is a great gift of holiday cheer. And for $25, you can buy a nice bottle.

Christmas Tree Ornament - This gift is obviously contingent on the recipient celebrating Christmas. Nonetheless, it is a thoughtful present that can be kept forever. Depending on the ornament, some can be personalized with engraved messages, as well as the year they were purchased.

Lottery Tickets - This is another inexpensive gift you should consider. The idea of scratching off 25 lottery tickets can be a lot of fun. The gift gets even better if a number of the lottery tickets pay off. Tuck them inside a thoughtful card and you're all set.

French Press Coffee Pot - Every true coffee lover should have a French Press pot. And even if they already have one, they'll probably enjoy another one to keep in separate locations or to be used simultaneously for larger get-togethers.

A Journal and a Pen - One does not have to be a writer in order to find countless uses for a journal and a pen.

A Board Game - From single folks to families, board games provide the perfect entertainment at a gathering with friends, or even a quiet weekend night at home.

Homemade Gift Basket - Putting together a gift basket for someone allows you to tailor the gift precisely to the interests of the person who's receiving it. Gift basket themes are limitless and can fit into any budget.

Bath and Body Gifts - Everyone can use a little bit of pampering from time to time. With the variety of scented lotions and shower gels available today, you're sure to find something within your budget.

Gifts Certificate- Running out of imagination or not sure what the person would enjoy a gift certificate to the mall or at a popular coffee shop is always appreciated.

Subscription to a magazine – Especially kids who will remember you when they receive their monthly magazine in the mail.

Times may be tough, but that doesn't mean you need to completely forgo the tradition of holiday gift buying. You just have to be a bit more creative. Happy shopping...and happy holidays.
