With holidays on the horizon, there are definitely some considerations we have to make as we embark on our gift giving mission. Certainly, there are those people for whom an expensive or over-the-top gift is simply not fitting, such as coworkers or “white elephant” recipients. Or perhaps you have a huge family and keeping a budget in mind when shopping is the only reasonable way to give everyone something special. Or perhaps you and your special someone have promised NOT to get each other gifts this year, but that really means you want to get SOMETHING small just because… Whatever the situation may be, it is always handy and wise to have a list of gifts under $25 to keep in mind.
For this reason, we’ve compiled a short list of awesome, handmade gifts under $25. We’ll post a few of these 25-And-Under lists as the holiday draws nearer, with a list of stocking stuffers included.
Christina Mrozik Enamel Pins ($15): The current trend of enamel pins falls somewhere in between wearing a broach and wearing a simple pin. They are artfully designed and crafted, and very collectible. They also bump up your jacket look.
