12 Expensive-Looking Gifts That Actually Cost Less Than $25
Spare your bank account this holiday season by shopping smarter, not harder. Great gifts don’t have to set you back hundreds of dollars — in fact, we’d argue that some of the best presents cost less than a nice lunch.
Whether you're brainstorming gift ideas for Secret Santa or a White Elephant gift exchange, or shopping for stocking stuffers, we've rounded up the best cheap gifts (that look like they cost way more) from Amazon, Nordstrom, Saks, and beyond.
Read on below to see our top 12 picks for gifts under $25 — and add them to your cart now to make sure they arrive by Christmas.
ASTR The Label Araceli Mini Dress
It can be difficult to purchase clothes as gifts because people’s personal styles are unique and sometimes hard to read. Even so, we completely recommend this off-shoulder dress that’s currently available for a steal at just $25. Get this for your friend who loves Reformation and is travelling somewhere warm this season, and check out the tan version, which is even more affordable at just $15.
Mexcallen Mixing Bowls Set
Marika Josie Verdant Mid-Calf Leggings
If fitness or athleisure is their game, take note: There are a handful of great Marika leggings on sale right now. We love this brand for its reliable no-show fabric (even in complicated yoga poses), and its eye-catching prints. Get these while they’re on super-deep discount, and be thankful to have at least some of your holiday shopping handled. (And maybe pick up a few pairs for yourself while you’re at it.)

Free People 1809 Fragrances
Beloved brand, Free People, just launched its very first line of all natural fragrances, and, even though they are a touch over $25, we can’t wait to share them with everyone we know. Dubbed ‘1809’ after the address of the brand’s first office in Philadelphia, the fragrances come in three equally delicious scents: Camp, Surf, and Zen.
