Looking to give a little something special over the holidays, but not looking to break the bank?? I’ve compiled a list of gift ideas under $25, so whether it’s gift ideas for ALL those nieces and nephews, or maybe a Secret Santa, or stocking stuffer, this list should get the wheels spinning for all those small gift ideas!
DISCLAIMER: This post is in partnership with Cineplex; however, all opinions expressed are my own.
CINEPLEX GIFT CARDS
One of my favourite things to gift is experiences, and one of my favourite things to do is go to the movies! I love the popcorn, I love the big screens, I love the cozy seats. Honestly lately I love just leaving the house!
Movies are kind of like a mini vacation hey?? What better way to escape the hustle and bustle or perhaps learn something new, or see something from a different perspective, than to go to the movies!! I think it’s the perfect gift for anyone at any age!! And Cineplex is currently running a promotion that you are not going to want to miss!

ECO FRIENDLY BEAUTY + SELF CARE ITEMS
Create a little basket of goodies at Luminate they carry so many great eco friendly beauty and self care items, you’ll definitely find something. From shampoo bars, to bath bombs Sarah is always bringing in the best of the best, and I just adore everything she’s doing in terms of sustainable shopping and wellness. This is the future folks!!
JAVA BLEND MARGOT AND TODD BUNDLE AND/OR BLUME PRODUCTS
Most of of the coffee at Java Blend is under $25 of course, but I wanted to share the Margot and Todd bundle (technically $25.20), but it’s just SO fun and festive (obsessed with the packaging) great for the coffee and Christmas movie lover on your list 😉
Did you also know that Java Blend also now carries Blume products! Blume products are packed with healing and nutritious superfood ingredients, so whether you enjoy them as is, or add them to your coffee Blume products are such an easy (and delcious) way to get extra health benefits!!! From hormone balancing maca to anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric, or the zero crash of Matcha tea!
Level up on your at home lattes with a Blume Milk Frother, it’s so easy to use (and clean), and it comes with two attachments. A frother would make a great gift for any coffee or tea lover on your list!!
HALIFAX PAPER HEARTS LIGHTHOUSE PRINT
I love this lighthouse print from Halifax Paper Hearts ($19.95) I have it in my kitchen, and I just think it’s the cutest! There’s also tote bags, and ornaments! This shop is adorable, Stef curates the best items you’ll definitely find something under $25!!
GIFT CARD FOR A NEW BUSINESS
I loveeee trying new places, and of course it cannot have been easy to open a business during the pandemic, so why not support someone who’s just getting started! Whether it’s a new bakery, bistro, decor shop, or service business they would LOVE your support.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MOM (OR DAD, GRANDMA, GRANDPA ETC).
This one comes way under budget at just $14.25, but I just think it’s just the cutest thing. So basically it’s a “WHAT I LOVE ABOUT______ ” book with prompts for you to personalize all the things you love about that special person in your life. So whether you’re looking for that extra special gift idea for your mom, dad, grandma, or grandpa whoever (there’s lots of options) this gift is definitely for the sentimental person in your life!!
CREATIVE MIND HAPPY SOUL JOURNAL FROM DOODLE LOVELY
I got my hands on one of these Creative Mind Happy Soup Journals last year, and it’s such a fun, and interactive little journal! If you have a doodler on your Christmas list, or someone you think would love to combine their love of journaling WITH doodling this is THE GIFT for them!
ALL NATURAL FRAGRANCE FREE BODY BUTTER
It can be REALLY tricky to find gifts for the people in our lives with super duper sensitive skin. This body body from Simply Go Natural ticks all the boxes and some!!
“50 THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT YOU” DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
If you’re familiar with editing software like ADOBE Illustrator you can download the digital template for the “50 THING WE LOVE ABOUT YOU” and print it your self. Which saves you not only on shipping costs, but you can also decide how you want to frame it etc.
OUR BEST NS JOURNAL
How cute is this little journal to record your travel adventures!! The Our Best NS Journal is such a fun gift idea, and at 24.99 it’s right under budget!!
LOVE AND LORE TRAVEL WALLET
Speaking of travel, my friend got me one of these, Love and Lore Travel Wallets (currently on sale for $17) a while back and it’s honestly just been the best thing ever. I recently used it on my road trip to Boston, and it could not have been more perfect to hold all my travel documents, but also all the extra Covid documents that we need now too!
ALL NATURAL LIP BALM
Who doesn’t need a little TLC for their lips this time of year! I love this local brand all natural cruelty free Eclair Lips Lip balm! They have so many different varieties, and some with really empowering messaging too!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Hopefully today’s blog post sparked some gift ideas for you!! Bottom line gifts don’t need to break the bank to have a big impact, so whether it’s tickets to go see that new IT movie, or a yummy lip balm to stash in every pocket during those cooler months: you can’t go wrong with any of the above, or any gift from the heart!!! It really and truly is the gift that counts!
Love this!!! Thanks for the ideas
These are awesome ideas! So nice to have more affordable options!!
1. I miss going to movies but definitely have been loving the at home cineplex for now.
2. Need a frother…and totally going to check out Luminate for some gifts and the next spa night.
3. Love Jojoba oil anything for my sensitive skin so I want that body butter!
