From your work wife to your IRL bestie to your favorite spin instructor, you’ve got a long list to shop for this season, which means finding high-quality, budget-friendly gifts is a must.
To help you spread the wellness vibes without breaking the bank, we rounded up our 12 picks that are all under $25. Grab a rose quartz gua sha skin-care tool (that looks way more expensive than it is), a matcha-lover’s dream kit, or a luxe snail gel facial serum from Dr.Organic®, and no one will believe how little you paid for everything (so snag something for yourself while you’re at it).
Scroll down for the wellness-inspired, budget-friendly gifts to add to your holiday shopping list.
Avocado Huggers, $11
How many times has an avocado died because you wanted to save half for later, but it turned too brown before you could eat it? Too many times. These avocado saviors are designed to fit tightly to the green fruit (the pits push in or out depending on which side you’re saving) to keep them fresher longer. Your giftee will love you almost as much as she loves avocados.
Who needs over-priced skin treatments when you can score products that are effective and affordable? Skip the gift card for an expensive facial, and instead treat your friend (and yourself, while you’re at it) to a luxurious, moisturizing facial experience with this delicately scented, ultra-softening day cream. It’s made with select organic ingredients that are cruelty-free and clean (no parabens, phthalates, petroleum, etc.), so not only will your skin look great, but you’ll feel good about what you’re gifting.
Keep the DIY spa vibes going with a set of non-toxic nail polishes that are made for an at-home self-care moment—without dishing out dollars on a professional manicure.
Keep her newly pedicured toes warm (after the polish dries, of course) with these cheeky socks reminding her to take a moment to chill—as often as possible.
Let your beauty-loving BFF in on a little Korean beauty secret: Dr.Organic snail gel is naturally rich in collagen, elastin, and glycolic acid to help soften fine lines and wrinkles. Made with select organic ingredients, it’s affordable and free from parabens, artificial colors, petroleum, glycols, mineral oil, and silicones—and it’s cruelty free. (She’ll be hitting you up for beauty insider tips all year long.)
Rather than splurging on a tropical vacation, wrap up this coconut-scented incense for your hygge-loving friend with a card that says, “I know you’d rather stay home anyway.”
Everyday Matcha Bowl, $20
Matcha is the quintessential wellness drink, but you can take her passion for it to the next level with this sleek porcelain whisking bowl so she can whip up barista-level lattes at home. Bonus points if you include a bamboo chasen to round out the set.
Go Sage Yourself Mug, $24
Because every good matcha deserves a good mug. Grab one of these for your friend who isn’t a morning person as a reminder not to talk to anyone before getting her energy in check (AKA being properly caffeinated).
For those mornings when she’s on-the-go but still wants her homemade matcha fix, hook her up with these handy travel packs she can stir into the reusable insulated cup you got her last year. They’re the budget-friendly gifts that keep on giving.
Everyone needs a reliable face wash they can count on, and this one combines organic aloe vera and calendula flowers (without any parabens, phthalates, petroleum, etc.) for a hydration-plus-cleansing double team. Is that like two gifts for the price of one?
Peach Bands Hip Band Set, $24.99
These resistance bands sneak in right under the $25 cap, but they’re worth the extra cents. Your fitness-focused friend will love that the fabric design means they won’t roll up while she’s working out (if you know how annoying that is, you know) and that they come in a handy pouch for taking to the gym.
For the wellness-loving friend who already has all the basics, snag this pretty gua sha skin-care tool that’s designed to help her glow (thanks to the facial massaging techniques used to promote lymphatic drainage) even more than she already does.
