Gifts under $20 are so important to us during the holidays! We love the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. But with so many people we want to show our thanks to with special gifts, it’s really special to us to find gifts under $20 that are meaningful, thoughtful and unique.
These are our picks for everyone on your list. Whether it’s a teacher gift, a host gift or something for a friend or neighbour, this list will cover all your bases and help you stay on budget.
1. Beautiful decor for the holidays and after
We LOVE these candle holders. Not only do they make beautiful centrepieces during the holidays, they work with any kind of decor all year. This is something that we would give to a family member or close friend.
If you want to add something special, we also love switching our our candles for an LED version! These are really handy to keep on hand when you have kids, or don’t to worry about running out of tea lights. These are a thoughtful gift on their own, but if you want to push a little past $20, we love adding these!
2. A classic cheeseboard
This is a winning option for truly anyone on your list. This cheese board is a great size AND it comes with the cheese knives! If there’s someone on your list who loves to entertain, or maybe someone who recently moved, they would love this serving board that’s a nice decor element for kitchens, too. We love the rustic but trendy vibe!
3. Fresh coffee every day
This French press is beautiful and thoughtful. If you have a friend or neighbour who loves coffee, they might not have tried a French press. It’s a simple way to make coffee every day and we love this simple, modern design.
4. Double-walled mugs — a trend we love
How great are these?! We love them. They go with any decor and keep your drink warm but they stay cool to the touch. This is a trend we’ve noticed catching on and we think your friends and family would love them, too. These come in a set of 2 and in Kitchen Stuff Plus stores, they are Buy One, Get One 50% off, so you can get 4 for less than $20!
5. Himalayan salt lamp to help them relax
Of the gifts under $20 we hear about a lot, everyone loves the Himalayan salt lamps. Whether it’s for a niece, aunt or host, they are popular with basically anyone into wellness. They are so versatile and are perfect for a bedroom, office or living room!
6. Modern and metallic serveware
How fun are these? Perfect for the holiday season and definitely something your friend would love using for the rest of the year, too. The gold and silver dots are really metallic and add a pop to any holiday party. You could gift the set or separate them and choose something else from our list to go with them!
7. The ultimate host gift
Okay, so these are some of our favourite gifts under $20. You have lots of options with this one!
This wine box set is an easy gift that has everything your friend or family member needs but they might not have. Along with the lovely wood box, it includes a corkscrew, wine topper and all the accessories they need.
You could pair the wine gift box above with wine glass markers or wine glass charms. Both are perfect for anyone you know who enjoys entertaining.
Both help identify whose wine glass is whose, and the markers can make parties fun by writing jokes on them! Another fun party ideas – these wine charms have LED lights, so it’s really easy to keep track of them.
8. Classic wine glasses
Another option for pairing is to include wine glasses with a bottle of wine or some snacks. How amazing is this deal? The entire set of 4 is just $14.99! This is a simple gift that will always come in handy and be appreciated.
9. A crushed bamboo paddle for the charcuterie fan
Isn’t this just gorgeous? Of all our gifts under $20, this is one your friend would never know is this affordable! It’s lovely quality and anyone who entertains will love to use it throughout the year.
10. Nutcracker mug set
11. With the matching nutcracker plate set!
We are obsessed with this pattern! Nutcrackers are one of the best symbols of Christmastime. No matter which option you choose, any friend or family member who enjoys the holidays, will love sipping their favourite drink or enjoying a holiday treat!
Plus, if you pair them together, you’re pretty close to another great gift under $20!
This is one of our personal all-time favourites! These bakeware dishes are so versatile. You can make anything in them and they look so good on the table. Plus, nobody would guess they are under $20! You could pair it with some snacks or even bring a home-baked dish to a holiday party and have them keep the bakeware as a gift. Love!
13. For anyone who loves baking
Looking for something thoughtful that is full of festive cheer? We love pairing a nice set of holiday tea towels with a handy silicone spatula. If you have a neighbour who loves to bake, this is the best combination.
14. Festive holiday lantern
Easy mantel decor is a gift everyone appreciates this time of year! We LOVE these lanterns. Along with placing them on a mantel, they can really be placed in any room for that instant cozy feeling.
15. Because a cheese gift is always a great gift
These brie bakers are so popular – for good reason! They come in beautiful packaging but obviously we love giving them to our friends because they always appreciate a gift that involves cheese! Who wouldn’t, right?
16. Help them stock their bar cart
This set is perfect for anyone who’s hard to shop for! This will look nice in their cabinet or bar cart, and makes it easy to host guests. Can you believe it’s less that $20 for the decanter AND six glasses? Love it.
17. Festive serveware for easy holiday hosting
This set of serving dishes is always a crowd-pleaser! It saves space and makes it easy to serve treats and snacks. There’s definitely someone on your list who would love to use this!
18. The cutest elephant tea pot
How adorable is this? And can you believe it’s under $10! You can easily pair it with your friend or family member’s favourite tea for a thoughtful gift under $20.
19. An elegant marble candle
We are SURE everyone on your list would love one (or two!) of these. They look so beautiful and they smell AMAZING. They are only $14.99 each and in-store, they are Buy One, Get One 50% off!
20. Help them relax over the holidays
The perfect easy gift. Really. Can you believe these festive reed diffusers are only $7.49 each? There are many scents to choose from and we love that they are so pretty, you don’t even have to wrap them!
To make it a gift (well under!) $20, you could pair it with a set of fun bath bombs. The ultimate holiday spa treat!
