Gift List: $25 and Under

Gifts don't have to break the bank. Whether you're stuffing stockings or grabbing several small things for loved ones, these gifts will only deliver a soft blow to your wallet...unless you buy all of them--and I can see how that might be tempting. Happy shopping.

1. I always need an extra outlet. I like the bright color and Tetris like look of this multi-outlet by Kikkerland. ($14)

2. This gift is based on a European tradition. Make a wish, set it aflame and let it fly into the universe. I'd never heard of the tradition before seeing these wish papers by Catbird but it's beautiful. I love these as a stocking stuffer.

3. I have an affinity for moscow mules. These traditional copper mugs by West Elm are the perfect vessel for the refreshing cocktail. ($9)

4. You don't know this but I've been collecting giraffe sculptures for a while. When I saw this accessory bowl by Anthropologie, I knew it had to make the gift list. ($16)

5. I love the bright pop of color these Poketo card cases offer. I also like that they are soft and not the traditional rectangular, metal ones that are so common. ($18)

6. Can't get the perfect angle on your selfie? Why not use a remote? Specifically, why not use the Shutterball? ($24.99)

7. I love trying new cocktails and Shake by Eric Prum and Josh Williams offers seasonal recipes limited to five ingredients or less. Try pairing it with a mason jar cocktail shaker (like this one from Williams Sonoma) for the perfect gift. ($25)

8. The color on this Les Petits (OMG) stationery by Connor is so rich and beautiful. It's the perfect gift for the person in your life that still hand writes notes. ($25)

9. Most people have a neck pillow for air travel, but what about one with a hoodie? As cold as I usually am on a flight, I kinda love this thing. The travel hoodiepillow is by Dormify and can be found here. ($19.95)

10. Every girl needs a good set of makeup brushes. I love the reasonable price point on these by Sonia Kashuk. ($21.99)

11. Another gift for the cocktail connoisseur in your life. I love this gold jigger by Cocktail Kingdom.($15.95)

12. I love this infinity bracelet by Louun. The infinity symbol is special to the women in my family but it carries a nice message for anyone you love. ($24)

13. Scented candles just hit a new high. Kentucky Fried Chicken scent? Yep. It's perfect for those same people who go for bacon scented products. Check them out at Scents of the Commonwealth. ($22)

14. These recycled bottle lanterns have the look of mercury glass. They are perfect for a deck, table centerpiece or dresser and available on Open Sky. ($20-$25)
