It’s that time of year again — the gift-giving season is here! With holiday parties, family gatherings, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years all happening over the course of just a few weeks, we are on the hunt for the best gifts of the year. But buying all of those presents can add up to a pretty hefty bill, so we have rounded up a few of our very favorite gifts (that anyone would love) that all retail for under $25. See them in action in the video above and shop them all below!
This little rice cooker is as useful as it is cute! Use this mini cooker/steamer to whip up personal-sized servings of everything from soup to pasta to oatmeal in just a few minutes. Simply fill up the non-stick pot with water and your uncooked food, and press the cook button to have a yummy dish ready to eat in under 20 minutes. We love this gift idea if you have a college student or a host-with-the-most on your holiday gift list.

Give the beauty queens in your life the viral makeup product that you’ve been seeing all over Instagram — Flower Balm by Winky Lux! This lip balm looks clear in the tube, but once applied, the balm transforms into the perfect pink shade for your skin tone as it reacts with the pH-levels on your lips! Not to mention, Winky Lux’s products are cruelty-free, paraben-free and vegan so you can feel good about buying a few extra items as stocking stuffers.

With this next gift, you can put your loved one’s names in lights — literally. The Make-Your-Own Neon Effect Sign Kit from Urban Outfitters allows you to create a custom mini neon-style sign, thanks to its bendable light-up wire. Just shape your wire into whatever you’d like and then choose if you want it to be lit up with a static light, a slow flashing light or a fast flashing light! This present is perfect for friends obsessed with interior design or gifts that have a personal touch.

Grow your own herbs at home with this vintage-inspired planter! Having fresh herbs on hand can help you to take your meals and cocktails to the next level, and this planter could not be easier to use: “Plant the included seeds of your choice, put water in the reservoir, place the jar in a sunny window, and get growing.”
Shop: Mason Jar Indoor Herb Garden, $20
Instead of gifting the typical candle or perfume this holiday, give your friends a reed diffuser that will give off a great scent 24/7! To get the scent started, simply put the included sticks into the bottle full of fragrance oil and the scent will start to diffuse throughout your room. Urban Outfitters reminds users to “flip sticks ever 1-2 weeks to prolong scent.”
Shop: P.F. Candle Co. Reed Diffuser, $22
