the ultimate gift guide for gifts $25 and under.

Gift Idea #1: Aloha Bags

water resistant makeup bag.

These Aloha Bags are the perfect mini pouch that can be used for so many things. Our favorite way to use it is as an organizer for the essentials–keys, phone, chapstick, etc. It’s even splash-proof so it gives you some extra comfort knowing it will do a good job protecting what’s inside! You could even use this little pouch as a makeup bag, but the options are endless. 

Gift Idea #2: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

laneige lip sleeping mask.

We are absolutely in love with the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. It moisturizes your lips in a way that regular chapstick can’t do alone. You apply the lip mask before bed every night and it will nourish and hydrate your lips all night long. You’ll wake up every morning with the softest lips and feel so refreshed every single time. They have several different flavors to choose from, so pick your favorite and give it a try! 

Gift Idea #3: Lululemon Makeup Bag

lululemon makeup bag.

This Lululemon Makeup Bag is the perfect thing to carry your makeup essentials in when you are on the go. If you are someone who tends to do makeup in the car, this bag is the best pick to organize it in. Not just because it’s cute, but because it’s designed for those on the move and has a durable fabric that is water-repellant. The bag comes in three different colors, so we are sure you’ll find one you love! 

Gift Idea #4: Summer Fridays Lip Gloss

the best hydrating natural lip gloss.

We feel so fancy in our Summer Fridays Lip Gloss. Not only does it make your lips look amazing, but it hydrates your lips in seconds. There are several different flavors to choose from, but our favorite is Vanilla Beige. We love that natural look it gives while also giving your lips that extra shine. It’s like taking your everyday look up a notch all while showing your lips some hydrating love. 

Gift Idea #5: Barefoot Dream Socks

the coziest socks for your feet.

Say hello to the coziest socks your feet will ever meet–the Barefoot Dream Socks. There’s nothing like slipping on a cozy pair of socks in the wintertime and snuggling up on your couch to watch a movie. Or, slip these on with a pair of booties and keep your feet warm and cozy while you’re out and about. Either way, these socks will make a great stocking stuffer and will make you (and your feet) so happy! 

Gift Idea #6: Olive and June Nail Polish Set

olive and june nail polish set.

Olive and June are such a high-quality chic company. It sells the absolute best nail accessories that any girl would love. We adore the nail polish set that comes with 4 bottles of nail polish. We prefer neutral colors because it goes with everything, but feel free to choose your favorite colors! The best part is that this set comes with a top coat, so your nail polish can stay protected and look fresh for longer. 

Gift Idea #7: Volcano Room Spray 

volcano room freshening spray.

We promise this Volcano Room Spray from Anthropologie will be one of the best things you ever smell. The Capri Blue scent is to die for and it’ll be a dream come true to have your home smell like this! And don’t worry, the room spray is formulated with a clean formula, so you can sniff in the aroma without a care in the world. There’s no better way to give your home a refresh than with a new attractive smell! 

Gift Idea #8: Vanilla and Fig Candle 

Vanilla and fig candle.

Now that we are on the topic of smell-good products, we have to talk about the Vanilla and Fig Candle from Anthropologie as well. A lit candle in a clean home is probably one of the best feelings in the world. This vanilla and fig-scented candle is one of our go-to favorites because it’s the perfect blend and will fill the air with the most delicious smell without it being too overwhelming. This candle would be a great gift to give to a friend this year or even to yourself! 

Gift Idea #9: Thymes Frazier Fir Diffuser Oil

Thyme diffuser oil.

We have another product that will bring the best smells to your home. If you’re not a fan of room spray or candles, maybe these diffuser oils will do the trick. This Thymes Frazier Fir Diffuser Oil is a fragrance that keeps on giving. You can use it all year long or pull it out just in time for the holidays. We can’t say enough good things about this fragrance. Plus, it’s so easy to use! You just drop 5-10 drops into your electric diffuser and let it work its magic! 

Gift Idea #10: Diffuser

essential oil diffuser.

If we talked you into the diffuser oil but you don’t have a diffuser, don’t worry, this Ceramic Diffuser is a great one to try. We love the look of this one because it’s white, sleek, and will easily blend in with the decor you already have set up in your home. You can choose to set the diffuser on a timer of 30 minutes up to 2 hours, or you can just leave it on the on option and turn it off whenever you’re done. 

Gift Idea #11: 2024 Planner

Neutral and minimalist 2024 planner.

If you are a planner type of person, you will love this 2024 planner. It features a fun watercolor design, high-quality thick paper, and a twin-wire gold binding. When you are a busy student, mom, or business person, writing out your weekly plans will help you get all of your to-dos out of your head and onto paper. And you might as well write it down in a cute planner. You’ll feel so put together using this planner and carrying it around with you! 

Gift Idea #12: Plush Throw Blanket

super cozy plush throw blanket for couch or arm chair.

This Plush Throw Blanket is the perfect way to upgrade your living space. Throws are such a fun way to add some layers and color to your living room, but when it’s a super soft and cozy one then it’s a double-win. We love this throw blanket because it exudes coziness and just gives our room the added texture it needs to feel more put together. 

Gift Idea #13: Stanley Mug

high quality on the go stanley mug.

This Stanley Mug is definitely worth the price! It keeps your drink hot or cold for a ridiculously long amount of time, it’s super durable and even comes with a lifetime warranty guaranteed. One of our favorite features about the mug is that you can take it on the go and sip it without worrying about it splashing or spilling over. It’s designed to be on the go, so you can take it with you trusting that it’ll do its job without you having to think twice about it. 

Gift Idea #14: Stanley Tumbler

the best stanley tumbler.

We couldn’t talk about the mug without mentioning the Stanley Tumbler. Have you joined the Stanley family yet? Once you do, you’ll never go back. It truly is one of the best tumblers to use for your drinks because of how durable it is and it’s overall high quality. This tumbler we linked is a 20 oz. and comes in three different colors. It’s the perfect size for keeping it with you while you run errands or even to just carry around your house! 

Gift Idea #15: Portable Speaker

You’ll be surprised how often this portable speaker comes in handy! It’s the perfect mini wireless speaker with surround sound. The speaker is great to use for house parties, by the pool, or could even be used for activities on the go. The speaker has several features that make it worth the price like dual pairing, 18-24 hour battery life, and waterproof!

This weighted sleep mask is actually really magical. You may have heard of a weighted blanket, but have you heard of a weight sleep mask? The mask is filled with beads and is made out of a super soft fabric that will help your eyes and face relax. It’s meant to add gentle pressure to help you sleep and release any tension you’re holding in your face. It’s like a hug for your head.
