How is the shopping going?

Are you almost done?

Halfway done?

Just getting started?

Everything was wrapped about a month ago and you are spending your Christmas vacation with cheese and Christmas movies.

Me? I’m in the home stretch. I have a lot of gifts I’m wrapping, but I keep thinking of people that I need to check off the list.

So today I thought I might try and be a little helpful and do a little research for myself (and for all of my friends) on inexpensive gift ideas that will show up on your doorstep before Christmas. I’ve grouped them into categories and listed out everything that I’ve found for tried and true gift ideas.

Here are 51 Gift Ideas Under $25.

A couple of quick notes on how to shop this post:

  1. I found everything on Walmart. You know how many affordable finds I’ve discovered there throughout the year and Christmas time is no exception. They have an entire gift finder here with everything grouped into categories. You can see it here.
  2. I take these recommendations very seriously. I went through the categories and recommended things either that a.) I already ordered (like my books) b.) had amazing reviews or c.) friends and family had recommended it to me.
  3. I put everything under each of the graphics (feel free to ask me questions about anything) but I also loaded everything onto a shopping widget under each picture (you can use the arrows to see everything on the graphic) as well as my LTK page, too, and you can also shop it over there as well.
  4. Some of these things I linked have a high-sell out rate. If you happen to see anything that’s sold out, just let me know and I’ll try and research a similar options (like I did with the candles and the wreaths).

And now?

Here are all the lists and gift ideas.

Tech Gift Ideas Under $25

Book Gift Ideas Under $25

Games and Toy Gift Ideas Under $25

Gift Ideas For The Cook Under $25

Gift Exchange Ideas Under $25

Gift Ideas For Men Under $25

I hope this was a little helpful.

If you are almost done with Christmas shopping you may find a few things for your list.

Halfway done? There may be a few categories you want to check out.

Just getting started? These lists might save you so much time.

    My son will be arriving home from college on Thursday, so I have a wrapping deadline. Wanna come to Michigan and do it for me? 😉 Is it ok if I'm looking at those makeup brushes for me?? Happy Monday morning, KariAnne.

    Thank you for all the hard work on this. The punk mug warmer is out of stock. There is another one listed but has a lower rating. This list is very helpful, especially for guys.

    What a fabulous curated list for great affordable gift ideas, KA! Thanks for doing all that legwork to save us time and energy!!! WOW Walmart has certainly stepped up its game, huh? I loved a huge portion of that list for myself. THAT is always a good indicator, haha. Thanks again. Time to head on over to their website and maybe finish up. Have a wonderful week!
