Holiday Gift Guide 2016: Gifts Under $25

I feel you. Nobody wants to be a Grinch but you don’t have unlimited funds for holiday gifts for ALL of your friends and family either. No worries! I found some great gifts that all come in under $25. Welcome to Presentville…

1. Hard Candy Makeup Set, $24

I really love Hard Candy because their products work, are cruelty free and are totally affordable. A grand slam. This kit contains all of their best/most popular products like; extreme mascara, daring lip gloss, eye shadow prime, eye shadow palette, metallic eye shadow, perfecting primer, baked blush, baked bronzer, heavy duty concealer and an eyeliner pencil. Everything your friend will need to be party ready!

2. TOOLETRIES Mighty Toothbrush Holder – Silicone toothbrush holder for bathroom mirror, $14.99

I just discovered TOOLETRIES. The Mighty Toothbrush Holder combines a toothbrush holder, razor rack, jewelry dish and compact shower caddy all-in-one. You can create a new storage space above the bathroom sink or store your toiletries in the shower. The grip works best on shiny, glass-like surfaces.

3. BP. Knit Beanie with Faux Fur Pompom, $19

Who doesn’t want or need a pompom beanie or 4? This one is a steal.

4. Retrospect Group “There’s a Chance This Is Wine Mug” in Gift Box, $16.95

Probably not meant for the office.

5. Bogobrush, $14.25

Minimalist quality toothbrush that it comes with it’s own stand.

6. Craig Set of 2 Portable Bluetooth Speakers in Gift Box, $16.56

These ultra-portable speakers allow one to stream any playlist wirelessly via Bluetooth, using a micro SD memory card, or with the included auxiliary cables. This gift includes two speakers, two gift boxes, two USB charging cables, and two auxiliary cables. They come in a variety of colors too.

7. Birchbox The Ingredient-Conscious Skincare Kit, $22

This kit makes it easy to explore and try ingredient-conscious skincare. Every product has been certified free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and petrochemicals. This is the perfect and affordable way to spread the “green” beauty love. This set contains; a facial scrub, charcoal mask, face cream, a radiance mask and an instant firming shot.

8. QVC Beauty Must Haves 6-piece Kit, $21.46

QVC’s customer beauty faves in one kit. It includes small sizes of Josie Maran Argan Oil, Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Cleansing Gel, Julep Color Treat Nail Polish, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Mally H3 Color Wand Lip Crayon and Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm.

9. The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lipstick, $10

Did you know The Body Shop has makeup now? Their Matte Lip Liquid provides long lasting intense color and a soft matte finish. The non-drying formula provides the perfect bold matte lip for this holiday season. It’s cruelty-free, gluten free and vegetarian.

10. Bright Endeavors Holiday Candle Collection, $24.99

I always love a gift that gives back! Bright Endeavors transforms the lives of young moms by teaching them to craft premium soy candles in a supportive, professional environment. 100% of the proceeds supports their employees. Chose from Holiday Citrus, Pumpkin Chia, or Whitebark Pine for a soy wax and phthalate-free fragrance scented candle in in 110z signature glass with a burn time of 40 hours.

11. LATHER Vanilla Bath Fizz, $18

I am a HUGE fan of LATHER natural skincare products. These effervescent mineral and emollient-rich bath set come in two different aromas, each inspired by the balancing properties of vanilla. Vanilla tonka blend releases a sweet, comforting and relaxing aroma. Vanilla citrus blend includes a bright, cheerful note. Epsom salt (sodium bicarbonate) helps relieve sore muscles and promote relaxation. They also contain moisturizing botanicals including jojoba, coconut, sweet almond and kukui nut oils to condition skin.

12. Skinnies Cocktail Mixers Variety Pack – 4 boxes, $19

SKINNIES are amazing Zero Calorie cocktail mixers made with 100% all natural plant based ingredients. In the variety pack there are 4 boxes with 6 single serve packets. Add booze and soda and you are off to the races, pretty much guilt free. Great to stick in a bag or pocket.

13. Tooletries Mighty Mirror, $12.99

I love this anti-fog mirror! It’s is made of shatterproof glass and is designed to grip onto shiny surfaces without the use of suction cups. Great for the shower.

14. Soap & Glory Take Your Pink, $18

Soap & Glory’s marvelous medley of minis, all in their fruity-floral Original Pink fragrance make the perfect gift. This set contains Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel, Scrub Of Your Life Body Buffer, The Righteous Body Butter, Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream and a super-sudsy shower puff.

15. NUDESTIX 3-piece Discovery Collection For the Lips, $25

I was recently introduced to NUDESTIX everyday lip pencils and I adore them. They can also be used on the cheeks. In this set are 3 soft, non-drying matte lipstick/liner/cheek blush pencils in colors Purity, Kiss and Sin. They are infused with shea butter and vitamin E, and peptides to leave lips looking youthful and radiant. The black tin also contains a mirror and sharpener.
