100 Best Cheap Gift Ideas for Christmas Under $25

A huge gift guide of the best, highly rated, inexpensive cheap gift ideas under $25 for everyone on your Christmas shopping list or any time of year.

Whew! This was a BEAST of a gift guide to put together… mainly because it had a very tall order involved.

I wanted to provide y’all with tons of cheap gift ideas for the trickiest people on your list with items they will ACTUALLY use and love!

100 Cheap Gift Ideas for Christmas for everyone

(*All items are $25 at the time of this post publishing.)

“Cheap” is a totally relative term, of course. So maybe it’s better to say these are inexpensive Christmas gift ideas in comparison to inflation’s standards these days yet are still all highly rated that everyone loves.

Inexpensive Christmas Gift Resources

Like I said… a very tall, tricky task.

But I got so carried away with finding lots of affordable gifting inspiration that I ended up with a list of 100 cheap gift ideas! They’re all under $25 (some even as low as just $2) and come highly rated.

So many of these would be great as stocking stuffers too, and they’re proof you don’t have to spend a ton to find the perfect gift for someone. 

If this has been a tricky year for you financially, I hope this helps you stay within a reasonable budget this holiday season without making you feel like you had to skimp.

I’m wondering if maybe I should put together a gigantic “cheap gift ideas” guide for babies/kids/teens next. What do you think? Would that be helpful?

No matter what is under your tree though, I hope you know quality time (like spending an unplugged weekend together) or acts of service (like cleaning the house for a grandparent) is so much more valuable, and those are totally free.

It’s been a tough year, y’all. But we can do hard things. And love is simply priceless anyway, especially at Christmas.

Got any other budget friendly gifts you’d add to the holiday shopping list?
