A gift doesn’t have to have a high price tag to be considered a “good” gift.
Something small and affordable can be thoughtful and meaningful!
With rising prices, finding a budget-friendly gift can be a bit complicated. So I wanted to lend a helping hand by putting together a list of affordable holiday gifts for $25 and under that won’t break the bank.
Take a look and let me know what you think!

Budget-Friendly Beauty Gifts
Pamper your closest pal with these beauty gifts for the holidays.
I’m a little biased… but I think these Just Jill lip balms by Mad Gabs are the best!
They have a vanilla mint flavor to them and they’re nourishing without feeling greasy.
Mad Gabs also makes a set of Moose Smooch lip balms for just $22! Or holiday smooch lip balm tins for $25!
Help them start off the new year with a fresh skincare routine.
This gentle foam cleanser from PEAK 10 SKIN is made with ingredients like rosehip and vitamins A, C and E to remove dirt and regenerate skin cells.
I’m guilty of keeping brushes around for longer than I should. And if you have a friend that needs a brush upgrade, this Sephora Collection winter brush set is a great choice.
It comes with five brushes designed for applying eye makeup so they can nail that perfect makeup look!
Whether they prefer a bath or a shower, you can upgrade their routine with relaxing shower steamers and bath balms from Musee.
Don’t forget the hand cream! Because we all know how this winter weather can wreak havoc on our skin…
Great for stocking stuffers!
If you’re a fan of florals, try this discovery set of fragrances from Floral Street.
It includes eight mini perfume bottles to help you find a scent that fits YOU! They’re also ideal for the person that likes to swap personal fragrances throughout the year.
My favorite MAC lipstick comes in SO many colors… making it a great gift!
It has a satin texture so it’s not matte but not super glossy, and I love how smoothly it goes on.
Money Saving Style Finds
Spruce up their wardrobe with these stylish finds for everyone on your list.
This Gratitude Blessing Bracelet from My Saint My Hero is a reminder that your life has meaning. The world is a better place with you in it!
So if you know someone that could use this message, this bracelet will be a meaningful gift to unwrap.
The chilly weather is here! And if you want to feel warm without sacrificing style, take a peek at this knit beanie.
It comes in a few colors and I love the sweet little pom-pom on the top!
Pair the hat with this super cozy plaid winter scarf.
It features perfectly combined colors and a pattern that won’t go out of style. Not to mention texture that adds dimension!
These Key Finders push the under $25 limit by $1… but with four finders in this set, each one comes out to under $7!
You can give them as a bundle or separate them into multiple gifts.
If you have a younger gal on your gifting list, she’ll love this scrunchie pack from Slip.
Scrunchies started making a comeback a couple of years ago and they’re here to stay! What’s great about these ones is that they’re made with silk meaning they won’t snag hair and they’ll fight against breakage.
While we’re on the topic of hair accessories, how neat are these scrunchies with hidden pockets??
Each one includes a small concealed pocket for things like keys, money lip balm (great for our Just Jill lip balm) and more.
For the person who’s purse looks more like the aftermath of a tornado, gift them this double-zip wallet that will keep change, cards and cash in order!
Kitchen Gifts Under $25
Need a present for the baker, cook and entertainer? You’ll find some items that they’ll love below!
First is this set of Seasonal Temp-tations loaf pans. While they’re designed with Christmas colors, I like that they’re not overly Christmasy.
And if you want to give them a gift that they’ll enjoy AND their stomachs will enjoy, bake some bread in these pans before you gift them!
Yes… this 4.5-quart Crock-Pot is under $25!
Crock-pot is a quality slow cooker brand and it’s bound to make cooking and meal prep much easier. Especially when making all of those holiday dishes!
Speaking of holiday dishes. Are you one to make WAY too much food like me?
No worries! Snag this 12-piece set of food storage containers to keep all of those leftovers fresh for days.
This Dash electric popcorn maker is just the cutest.
And how fun would it be to include this in a gift box with kernels, cute bowls and popcorn seasonings?
Keep your gravy warm on your holiday table with this ceramic gravy boat.
It comes with a warming tray and I love the neutral tone that will go with anyone’s table decor.
Other Affordable Holiday Gifts
But wait… there’s more! Check out some $25 and under holiday gifts here.
If you watched my Facebook Live last night, you were introduced to this sweet angel that’s now available in the Just Jill Shop!
She has a beautiful porcelain body that glows when turned on. She’s lovely when illuminated and lovely during the day!
I don’t know what I’d do without a water bottle by my side. Staying hydrated is SO important!
To help someone feel great and refreshed, you can give them this insulated water bottle.
Don’t forget to get them a WanderFull bag too! That way they won’t have to worry about it taking up valuable hand space.
When in doubt, a Christmas ornament is always a good idea! I love the classic and nostalgic look of these Norman Rockwell ornaments.
A timeless treasure!
The new year is a time for change.
And if you know someone wanting to create some new lifestyle habits, you can support them by giving them this hanging habit tracker.
Don’t know what to get that “hard to shop for” person on your list? Your best bet may be a gift card!
We now offer e-gift cards in the Just Jill Shop starting at a value of $25. But you can also buy them in $50, and $100 amounts as well.
See? The gifting season doesn’t have to be all that expensive with these affordable holiday gifts.
But remember, any gift that you give from your heart is bound to be a great one. So if material gifts aren’t on your radar this year, gift them some homemade baked goods, quality time or some kind words.
