Holiday Gift Guide 2016: 16 Gifts Under $25

The perfect gifts for hostesses, stocking stuffers or for the Secret Santa on your list

While it may still technically be “early” December, we are already well into that time of year where we should all be checking names of our lists and picking up gifts for our loved ones.

And as more parties and events keep popping up, so does the need for some amazing, but inexpensive, gifts. Not to mention those stockings we have to stuff!

So we’ve rounded up some great holiday gifts under $25 for everyone from your kid’s teacher to your Secret Santa.

Star Wars Salt And Pepper Shakers

With the release of the latest Star Wars film quickly approaching, there is sure to be at least one fan(atic) on your list this holiday season. We are obsessed with these Darth Vader and Storm Trooper salt and pepper shakers from Hallmark. Talk about adorable! Available at Hallmark, $19.95

A Festive Mug

Coffee and tea drinkers alike will love these mugs from Indigo. The fun sayings are great for the holidays but ring true all year round. Available at, $12.00

A Sled

A winter classic if there ever was one, a sled is a great gift for any kid on your list. And sure, it might seem a small Christmas miracle to get a sled for less than $25, but Canadian Tire has a ton of great options. We like this Snow Slider in the shape of a penguin. Available at, $25.00

Cute Kids’ Toques

Leave it to The Children’s Place to come up with some of the most adorable accessories for kids. We think the Cupcake Knit Beanie and the Puppy Knit Beanie make the perfect stocking stuffers for any kids on your list. Available at The Children’s Place, $7.47 each

Sassy Chocolate

What are the holidays if not a time to over-indulge? For the person with a discerning sweet tooth on your list, why not pick up a Makers and Merchants chocolate bar. Choose from dark, milk or milk with sea salt. Bonus: each flavour comes with a different sassy label! Available at, $7.20 each

In-Bottle Beer Chillers

A great gift for dad or your co-worker who loves a beer on Friday afternoons, these Amazerods are an in-bottle chiller that will keep your drink cold from the first sip all the way until the last sip! Perfect for stocking, too. Available at, $24.50

A Classic Tote

When we said, classic, we really meant it! This Radio CBC canvas tote from The Drake General Store is perfect to carry your everyday essentials and rep the True North all at once. Available at, $22.00

Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments

Help get their tree looking tip-top shape this year with these adorable handmade tree slice ornaments. Bring them the good vibes of peace love and joy for the holiday season. Available at, $16.45

Crocodile Rattle

Bring a smile to the face of a little one in your life with this too-cute crocodile rattle from Skip Hop. Made to fit in baby’s small hands, the rattle makes different sounds depending on how baby plays. Available at, $9.00

Scratch Map

For the world traveller on your list, this scratch map poster is perfect for keeping track of where they’ve been. The top layer of gold foil can be scratched away once they’ve visited a place. Bonus, this travel-size edition comes with a travel tube so it can go anywhere. Available at, $21.95

A Teddy Bear That Gives Back

Tolmie is the 11th annual HBC Charity Bear and 100% of his net proceeds go to support the HBC Foundation’s Strength in Stripes program. And as a bonus, you get Tolmie in his jaunty hat. Available at, $22.00

Beauty Crackers

Say goodbye to tiny paper hats and silly plastic toys: Quo is doing holiday crackers right this year. Each cracker comes with a lip colour and neutral eyeshadow and you get four crackers for $20. We love this! Available at Shoppers Drug Mart, $20.


Sounds boring, I know. But not when you are buying them a pair of Instance socks. Full of fun colours and patterns, you’re bound to find a pair that are perfect for everyone on your list, even kids. Available at, $11.00-$24.00 a pair

A Board Game

Looking for something that the whole family will love? What about board game? Pick one that will work for the family you’re shopping for (age-wise and interest-wise). We love this Frozen inspired take on the classic, Trouble. Available at, $20.00

Coconut Beauty Bag

Make someone on your list feel beautiful from head to toe with this coconut set from The Body Shop. Because who doesn’t love smelling like a warm summer beach during the cold winter months. Available at, $15.00
