Very Merry $25 Gifts

Monday, December 8, 2014

Christmas shopping is always an event for anyone with a list of who to buy gifts for. Luckily there’s online shopping and popular retail places like Sephora only take 3 days to reach your door. If you’re like me, you’ll buy all through the year and set it aside in your closet until it’s wrapping time. Along with Christmas shopping comes managing your budget, so I compiled this list of my gifts and gift set picks that are under $25.00…hopefully one will catch your eye…

Soap & Glory Hand Food Trio $15.00

Soap & Glory makes amazing products, ranging from body wash to hand cream and body creams. If you’ve got friends who haven’t tried out Soap & Glory or if they have tried it and absolutely love this brand, then this is a great gift set for them. It has the most popular Hand Food Hand Cream in three different scents: Original Pink Hydrating, Fruitigo Hydrating, and Sugar Crush. From past knowledge I know Sugar Crush is very sweet without being too overstimulating. So if the person you’re buying for isn’t into sweet scents, this may not be for them.

Victoria’s Secret Eau de Parfum Gift Set $25.00

Every year, Victoria’s Secret comes out with beautiful and festive gift sets for that special someone. Gift sets are featured in almost every scent under the sun at Victoria’s Secret; there are also other sets like lip-glosses and PINK gift sets. This gift set, made up of ten of the top fragrances, gives women the chance to try out all the scents to help decide which is their favorite. With original favorites of Heavenly, Bombshell, and Noir Tease to newbies like Eau So Sexy, Fearless, and Angels Only, you really can’t go wrong with this gift set. It comes in the cutest packaging, too. Made to look like a long piece of candy with ribbon ties on the end, it could be added to a gift, thrown in a gift bag, or even handed right to someone; it makes life easier without the worry of wrapping.

Soap & Glory All the Right Smoothes $15.00

Another body care pick from the popular UK brand, these travel-sized body butters are perfect to separate into multiple gifts or give the set itself to a loved one! I love body butters because they’re thicker than lotions and keep my hands moisturized longer. This set contains The Righteous Butter Body Butter, Sugar Crush Body Buttercream, and Butter Yourself Super Rich Body Cream. I have the full size of the Sugar Crush Body Buttercream and I love it. It is a bit sweet but light at the same time; the smell of limes in this body buttercream reminds me of summer.

Benefit Goodies a Go-go Eye Kit $25.00

Called the Sweet & Seductive eye kit, the products are housed in what may be the cutest packaging on a gift set ever. It’s complete with the super popular They’re Real! Mascara deluxe sample, longwear powder shadows in Call my Buff, Thanks a Latte, Gilty Pleasure, and Kiss me, I’m Tipsy, and the Stay Don’t Stray eye primer deluxe sample. This gift set is perfect for anyone from a best friend, mother, or any family member no matter how little she may know about makeup. This set is very neutral but could be built up for a more dramatic eye look with other products. The packaging can even save you some time, just tie some ribbon around it, slap on a gift tag and you’re ready to go(-go)!

Ciaté Haute House Paint Pot Collection $25.00

I first laid eyes on this limited edition set on a blogger’s site based in the UK. It first came out in the United Kingdom in the beginning of fall and it has arrived in the States right in time for Christmas. With five metallic or ‘rich ink’ colors to pick from, these are all perfect shades for day or night. I’m not a huge metallic person but I love the way these look and I think they could be quite fun for those holiday parties where everything twinkles a little bit more.

LUSH Golden Wonder $19.95

LUSH’s gift sets are my new favorite things at the moment and they are to die for. You’re able to buy these gift sets already wrapped up in fun festive paper and sealed with a ribbon. They’re perfect for on the go or if you’re the person who hates wrapping presents. This set is perfect for people who don’t own anything from LUSH or who are die-hard fans. Inside the gold package are the limited edition Celebrate lotion, gold FUN multi-purpose bath soap, and the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb. The lotion is a new addition to my must-have list from LUSH and you can’t go wrong at all with a signature bath bomb, too. I really do love this set and it is a perfect $20 gift.

LUSH Festive Cheer $16.95

This one ranks as one of the most festive products. It literally smells like a winter dream. Underneath the orange and red Christmas tree and ornament wrapping lays the Hot Toddy body wash, which only comes out for the holidays. I am in love with this body wash at the moment, it has a special blend of spices that fills your nose and leaves skin feeling fresh after the shower. It’s also a very fun sparkly red color too. Along with the body wash comes a bar of soap that’s super festive too. The Yog Nog soap, a holiday exclusive too, is specially made with eggnog and soy yogurt to really cleanse skin richly. I’m not an egg nog lover by any means but this soap is very intriguing to me, especially since it has a dusting of cocoa powder and nutmeg on top too.

So now you’ve read my picks and hopefully one sticks out for you to gift or even pick up for yourself! Gift cards are also always a great go-to if you don’t have time to buy something. An ornament or a mini perfume from Victoria’s Secret is a great, inexpensive add-on possibility as well. The holidays are now in full swing at my home and I’ve got my list for people I still need to buy for. Keep an eye out for my $30.00 and up post following this one!
