Yes, I’m aware that Halloween was just last week, but I’m not alone in already thinking about my holiday gift list. You know the stores are already gearing up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so let’s face it, whether we’re decorating, planning menus, or gift shopping, the holiday season is upon us! So it’s time to start thinking about that gift list. It never hurts to start getting ideas or start shopping early.
When it comes to gift giving, I usually wait until the last minute and get great ideas after I’ve already given the gift. So if you’re anything like me and need some time to mull it over, I’ve compiled a list of all kinds of gifts for all occasions and the different people in your life. Also, the majority of these gifts are things I’ve received, given as gifts, or plan to give as gifts.
The best part, they’re all under $25!
Mother and Daughter Aprons – $24.99 -Amazon – These are a perfect gift for a special mother and daughter pair in your life, or even just a gift for you and your own daughter.
Grilling Apron –$18.99 – Kohl’s- This gift is perfect for the man that likes to grill. I know it’s too cold to grill in most of the country this time of year, however, it won’t always be. In the meantime, I imagine men wouldn’t mind wearing a cool apron in the kitchen with all kinds of pockets.
Mermaid Pillow – $10.59 – Amazon – This is a gift based purely on what’s popular right now. These pillows are so cute and so wonderfully distracting. Who knows if they will stand the test of time but I’ve heard they keep the kids busy for at least 30 minutes.
Blanket Scarf – $12.86 – Amazon – This is a gift for a woman who lives cold weather, even if you live in Florida. We get cold too! But it’s great because it really allows you to bundle up.

Sequence Board Game – $9.99 -Amazon – This might seem like it’s one for the kids but it’s actually great for anyone. My mom got this for my sister one year for Christmas. We opened it on Christmas Eve and my sister thought it was so lame until we started playing and she started winning. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to engage that competitive spirit.

Moscow Mule Set – $21.99 – Amazon – These are just plain cute. There, I said it! I know we’re not all drinking Moscow Mules, but the copper aesthetic is so charming and it keeps your drinks so cold! I’d recommend this gift as a Secret Santa or White Elephant gift. I brought these to a work Christmas party for White Elephant and they were almost as popular as the cash!

Shot Glass Set – $21.99 – Amazon – There are a million and one shot glass sets out there, I know. That’s why you want to get a set that’s themed. I’ve seen everything from sugar skulls to Marvel themed. This particular set I am recommending has the Tampa Bay Lighting logo on them. We probably all have someone in our lives that loves sports and alcohol. Try pairing it with a bottle of the recipient’s favorite alcohol.

Camera Lens Thermos – $11.99 – Amazon – This is such an adorable gift. I’ve actually gotten two of these as gifts and they’re so cute and practical. They’re great for anyone who’s even remotely interested in photography. But mostly they’re super just cute.
Animal Mug – $16.99– Amazon – This is a gift you can’t go wrong with. Unless someone doesn’t like animals, but that’s not likely. I recommend these adorable surprise cat and dog mugs. They’re shaped like the animal and when you’re finished with your drink, there is a nice little surprise animal inside!
Custom Necklace – $15.99– Amazon – This is a very thoughtful gift. Taking the time to customize a necklace or piece of jewelry shows a certain sincerity about the gift. I recommend this seller because I’ve ordered necklaces from them in the past and they’re great quality. It’s also fast shipping which I love!
Bonus: Philosophy: Snow Angel Duo – $27.00 – Ulta – (I know, it’s just over $25 but so worth it.) This was another winner from my mom. This is my all-time favorite scent and I highly recommend it because it’s only a seasonal scent. Get it while you can!
The beauty of this list is that most of these gifts can be found on Amazon. And if you’re like me and have a hard time finding a gift, deciding to buy it, and then when you finally do, it’s the week of said holiday, then Amazon is perfect for you. Especially Amazon Prime!
