The Best 20 Christmas Gift Ideas Under $25

Today I am sharing my 20 best Christmas gift ideas. They are inexpensive, awesome, and gifts I think all of you might like.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Guess what I just did. I shopped. And I found the best 20 Christmas finds under $25.

Ok, that’s a lie. I found way more than twenty gift ideas. But there is one common denominator. I want them all.

I know I was probably supposed to come up with a list for every member of your family. But I started shopping and kind of lost track and picked out twenty plus things that I want. 

I think you might like them too. 

It is day 10 of  Twelve Days to Get Ready for Christmas. My dear friend KariAnne @Thistlewood and I are sharing Our 20 Best Christmas Finds Under $25. Be sure and visit KariAnne’s blog to see her amazing ideas.

Surprisingly, all of my items fit into a few categories. They are Cooking, Entertaining, and Reading.

Christmas Gift Ideas in the Kitchen


I use a lot of herbs in our kitchen. I love to add extra seasoning to my recipes and here are two items that can be very helpful.


It doesn’t matter if you grow your own herbs or buy them in the produce section, this herb stripper is a must. Don’t even ask why I don’t own one already.

There is one dried herb that everyone should have in their kitchen. Herbs de Provence consists of dried Provençal herbs and spices, which include thyme, basil, rosemary, tarragon, savory, marjoram, oregano, and bay leaf. Just looking at the list makes it apparent how many recipes this can be added to.

Here are three baking items that I absolutely love (and need).

Ok, maybe I don’t need these copper mixing bowls, but I really want them. They cost a tad bit more than $25 but they are amazing.

I also don’t need any more pie pans, but two white fluted dishes for $19 is the steal of the century!

I would love some new Silicone Baking Mats. If you don’t have these, you should get them. They are very reasonably priced and they are what I line every baking sheet with when I bake.

White Porcelain Cake Stand

You probably know I am obsessed with white cake stands and anytime I can find one close to $25 (this one is $29) it’s a good thing. I love the height and the larger size.

I  also love these mini white porcelain cupcake stands and this whitewashed wooden cake stand

I also need some small bowls and I love these hand-painted pink bowls!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Entertaining 

Christmas Dinner Final

Entertaining is my favorite thing to do and I will throw a party whenever I can. This summer I tried to upgrade almost every family dinner and I can;t wait to do the same over the holidays.

This is my favorite copper bowl and I am going to gift this to some of my sisters.

I have a lot of the new Spode Christmas Tree Gold dinner plates but they have a 6″ bowl that would be so great to add to my collection.

You all know that I already own these copper candlesticks as I used them all summer long. But I need one more set so that I can really load up some of my tables with candles. In case you didn’t know, these copper candlesticks come in a set of three for $24.

To add to my copper collection, I really want these copper napkin rings. They come in a set of four for under $20.

I am also in love with a few vintage style Christmas items. 

These Mercury Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments are spectacular and I love that I can use these all year long!

I also love this Antique Mercury Glass Container that I want to fill with some small ornaments.

This Rose and Eucalyptus Wreath is under $20 and I think it would be so cute hanging in front of a vintage cabinet or on a door.

Flower arranging is one of my favorite pastimes during the holidays and there is one item I would love to have. These Bonsai scissors are what everyone uses and I really need a pair.

  1. Just a note to let you know that I am enjoying your getting ready for Christmas series
    Todays was fun and I added several of the items to my list. Enjoy your day

  2. Great ideas! I have a question, how did you attach the ribbon to the wreaths in your kitchen windows and what did you use to hang them? I’m not so crafty lol. I bought 2 gorgeous boxwood wreaths today and have my ribbon already but I am stuck now

  3. Renee Barreira, I am sure you could use the Command Strips found at Target, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. They do not need a nail to hang they are hung by adhesive and when you take them down, there is no damage. Good luck!!

    100 year old home~~ I too loved seeing your picks for Christmas. I love them all. Love the getting ready for Christmas posts!!
