I love the holiday season for many reasons, but one of my most favorite things is giving gifts to family and friends. I’ve put together six holiday gift ideas under $25… they’re simple, thoughtful and won’t break the bank!
A huge thanks to Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart for partnering with me on this post. As always, all opinions are mine. Affiliate links are included below for your convenience. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.
I headed to Walmart to shop one of my favorite brands…Better Homes & Gardens. I love their products for gift giving, but also for packaging–I can always find the perfect basket or bin. Then it’s really two gifts in one–the gift, and the basket too!
Holiday Gift Idea #1: Vintage Style Christmas Plates + Holiday Treats
Yummy treats piled high on a cute plate is one of my go-to gifts to give. I adore these Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms, and they’re so festive…perfect for Christmas! The vintage style plates are from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart, and they have a couple of different ones to choose from. They’re all the same on the edges, but with a different picture in the center, so you can mix and match…or keep them all the same. They’re part of the Heritage Collection, and there are so many serve ware options. You can give a set of 3 or 4 plates, tied up with an adorable ribbon, or fill a plate or platter with holiday goodies.
As a side note, all of these are available in store only. I used the location search to find a store in my area that had them in stock, then headed there to purchase them.
Holiday Gift Ideas #2: A Gift for Baking Lovers
Does someone in your life love to bake, or enjoy being in the kitchen? Put together an adorable basket full of fun holiday baking items for less than $25! I found the most perfect (and super cute–love those handles!) kitchen bin by Better Homes & Gardens, then filled it with sugar cookie mix, wooden spoons, Christmas cookie cutters & sprinkles. After tying it all up with an adorable red gingham ribbon, it’s ready to give! You can also tailor what put inside the basket, depending on who you’re giving it to.
I found the rest of the supplies at Walmart too!
Holiday Gift Ideas #3: Cozy Throw Blanket
Who doesn’t love a cozy throw blanket? They’re the best for snuggling up on the couch and also for adding to your holiday decor–which makes them such a great gift. I found this super soft and generously sized blanket in a beautiful cream color, but it also comes in a festive red. One other thing I love about it is how big it is…this is a full/queen size, which means I can use it on a couch or a bed. And yep, you guessed it…under $25! (They also have a king size which is a little more.) Tie a cute wreath on to the top (it comes folded, with the ribbon), and it’s ready to go in minutes.
Holiday Gift Ideas #4: Kitchen Gift Basket
I just love yummy smelling hand and dish soap, so I thought it would be fun to find a super cute basket, and put a few kitchen items together for a fun holiday gift. I looked for the basket first, and struck gold with a basket I found in the bath section! It’s a great size and look, and could be used in the kitchen or the bathroom. In addition to the hand soap and dish soap, I also included a cleaning spray and darling apron. Love!
Holiday Gift Ideas #5: Farmhouse Lantern
A lantern is such darling gift idea, and definitely one of my favorites. I found the most adorable Farmhouse Lantern. It’s perfectly rustic, comes in two different sizes, and can be filled with other cute things for giving. Last year I added a small Christmas tree inside a galvanized lantern, and I loved it so much, I knew I wanted to do it again! You could also fill it with yummy-smelling pine cones or fun Christmas ornaments.
Holiday Gift Ideas #6: Hot Chocolate Mug Gift
I’m always looking for fun and budget conscious gifts I can give to the people around me, and in my children’s lives. Something simple but adorable, and that shows them that I’m thinking of them that holiday season. I decided to put together a darling mug filled with hot chocolate mix, and tied up with a cute tag, red baker’s twine, and a candy cane. I adore the scalloped white mugs by Better Homes & Gardens, and they come in a set of 6 for less than $10. That means I can put together quite a few gifts for a really great price. And they’re so cute!!
They’re super easy to make:
I filled clear plastic treat sacks with chocolate mix, printed the tag, then tied the top with red baker’s twine. I slipped a candy cane through the center of the bow, then tucked the bag into a white mug. That’s it!
Happy Giving!!! xoxo
