Welcome to our third and final week of 2023 TIA Holiday Gift Guides. This weeks hits all the items big or small and we are starting out with Holiday Gifts Under $25!
Holiday Gifts Under $25
A gift doesn’t have to be huge or expensive to mean a lot. What these items lack in price they make up for in thoughtfulness, laughs, or even having more fun with each other in the future.
Easy & delicious recipes using only 5 Ingredients or Less from Trader Joe’s. I don’t own this cookbook, but I own a similar vegetarian Trader Joe’s cookbook and it’s one of my favorites. Just an FYI, this style of cookbook often simplifies cooking by showing you how to merge some prepackaged foods with fresh ingredients for a satisfying, nutritious, and most importantly quick meal.
This is ideal for the Trader Joe’s fanatic in your life or someone who doesn’t have a ton of time to cook.
- Amazon Review: “I followed on IG and bought the book as a gift! I have made several recipes and it has made shopping easier to change up our weekly routine thank you!!”
- Where to Buy: On sale for $20.01, normal price $26.99.
This clip-on portable booklight has over 20k reviews and a 4.6 star rating. It’s probably from the steady hold it keeps and the warm light that allows you to read in the dark with less eye strain and promotes a relaxing atmosphere.
Also, available in six different colors.
- Amazon Review: “This little lite is great for reading at night without disturbing others. It’s is small and compact, folds up nicely. The yellow light is nice as it is not too glaringly bright. It clips right onto the pages nicely and stays in place. When charging, it has the nice indicator light to show that it is charging, and it turns off when the charge is complete.”
- Where to Buy: $9.99 on Amazon.
Have a friend or coworker who is notorious for losing their keys or whatnot? I don’t, but that’s because I’m that friend. Anyway, a great and useful gift whether you know who you are gifting or putting in a nameless pile like a white elephant.
- Amazon Review: “This is now the third batch of Tiles I’ve bought, they are the best trackers if you use an Android phone. I put them in my luggage when I travel, in my backpack when I commute, in my purse every day, and on my keys. I also have the app on my phone and tablet, so if I lose any of these items I can find them with the push of a button (literally). They helped me track my delayed luggage on a recent flight! I wish the batteries were replaceable, so I wouldn’t have to keep buying new Tiles every few years – I’d pay more per tile for this!”
- Where to Buy: $24.99 on Amazon.
“House shoes” is code for “fancy slippers”. I actually might be adding this to my cart as I’m in need of a new pair. However, what I like about house shoes over slippers is that house shoes are cozy while offering more support. If you have hard floors throughout your home you’ll notice a difference in your legs, knees, ankles, and possibly more areas once you switch to a better slipper. Makes them perfect for the family member or friend who is always complaining about their aching lower body!
Comes in six different color options and available in women’s whole sizes 6-11.
- Amazon Review: “Comfy. Thick and Warm. Great indoors or out. Sole is made to go outside to grab the paper. Black. Wonderfully cushioned inside. Especially love the fit around my ankles! Not tight, not floppy, due to the adjustable velcro strap. Seem durable and well made.”
- Where to Buy: $16.99-19.74 on Amazon.
- Men’s Styles: Also available on Amazon.
A one-of-a-kind durable premium golf tee specifically designed to stand throughout your game even against heavy swings. Designed to reduce ball spin so you “never have to sacrifice accuracy for distance.”
- Amazon Review: “I bought these tee’s out of curiosity. I was skeptical if they really made a difference and decided to give them a try. I am happy to say I really do think they do make a difference. It only takes a minute to realize you need to lean it back a little so the ball doesn’t fall off. I shared with my parents and they both thought it made a difference for them as well.”
- Where to Buy: $19.99 on Amazon.
Crossbody bags are all the rage and for good reason. They are the perfect size for her phone, money, and a few other items she wants to keep close to her and easy to get to. We love this one for the price. You could give her this with some smaller gifts inside to make it extra special. And you have almost 20 colors to choose from, so chances are you’ll even be able to pick her favorite color.
- Amazon Review: “I really liked this bag. I used is as a crossbody-type bag on vacation because I didn’t need to carry much. It fits a decent amount of stuff. I was able to put my wallet, AirPods, portable charger, and a small hand sanitizer in there. It did rub my arm a little the way I wore but that was easily adjustable.”
- Where to Buy: $9.99 from Amazon.
Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best. Making stovetop popcorn is practically a weekly tradition with my kids before we watch movies on the weekends. This kit adds a little variety in the form of different types of kernels and seasonings.
- Amazon Review: “I recently purchased the Popcorn Movie Night Supplies Popcorn Kernels and Popcorn Seasoning Set of 16 as a birthday gift for my popcorn-loving mother, and I must say, it was a fantastic choice! The set exceeded all expectations and made for an unforgettable movie night experience.”
- Where to Buy: $21.98 on Amazon.
Don’t lie. You were obsessed with the original game for at least a month like the rest of us. As someone who still plays Wordle regularly, the only thing I don’t like is I’m craving MORE WORDLE after my one daily game. This 2-4 player game lets you ride that Wordle high AND get your friends involved.
- Amazon Review: “My kids and I love Wordle. This is fun to play together. They’ve been playing almost every day…challenging each other with the hardest words they can think of. In an age of electronic entertainment, this is refreshing.”
- Where to Buy: $19.99 on Amazon.
As long as everyone is having a good time these shot glasses will for sure keep the good times coming. For $15 this is the best gag gift.
- Amazon Review:
- Where to Buy: $14.99 on Amazon.
Available in large and extra large assortments. Includes an assortment of seven different salty or sweet gourmet nuts.
- Amazon Review:
- Where to Buy: Large is $18.95, Extra Large is $27.95. Both sizes are available on Amazon.
Travel is fun, but packing is a pain. Make it easier on your travel friend with travel cubes. Travel cubes are a type of luggage organizer and you can use them to organize your clothes, toiletries, travel documents and more.
There are tons of different styles of travel cubes available. However, we like this set because the covering is sheer so you can see what’s inside each cube instead of guessing.
This set also comes in 14 color options.
- Amazon Review: “These bags were great to use for organizing items in your suitcase. They provided a good variety of sizes for different items, were well made and attractive. You could choose from a variety of colors. They served me well on a recent trip to Scotland.”
- Where to Buy: Amazon $19.99 (reg. $24.99)
Contains three of each six different scents. The scents include: rose, lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, ocean, and coconut. Each tablet is packaged to retain its scent until you’re ready to use it.
- Amazon Review: “This morning I used the pink one. Oooh what a delight. A shower filled with roses to start my day. It’s a vibe for sure.”
- Where to Buy: $16.99 on Amazon.
These vegetable choppers can slice, julienne, chop, dice and beyond. This makes prepping veggies easier and so much faster. Plus, now your recipient can make all the cool salads they see on Instagram!
- Amazon Review: “The Vegetable Chopper, Onion Chopper, Mandolin Slicer Pro 10-in-1 is an absolute game-changer in the kitchen. This multifunctional marvel has streamlined my food preparation process like never before, earning it a well-deserved 5-star rating.”
- Where to Buy: $29.99 but on sale for $16.99 on Amazon.
