Gifts under $25

By Aylin Bilgin, Dec 14


GIFTS UNDER $25

During Calgary’s economic downturn, we understand if you're not able to maximize your budget,

but that doesn't mean you’ll have to compromise on bringing smiles to peoples faces.

That's why we’ve found presents for your friends and family that are $25 and under,

so you can give gifts with prices that slay sleigh, rather than scare you away.

Chatters: Hemp and Moroccan Hair and Body Minis $25

Although we’re Canadians, even we want to flee from the cold from time to time, and the Christmas holidays are the best time.

The perfect gift for the winter traveler? Travel- size Hemp and Moroccan Hair and Body Minis.

It keeps their skin hydrated, and hair soft and silky with the drying saltwater we know they’ll be swimming in.

Trust us, they’ll thank you later.

Artesano Galleria: Baking dish $15 each, potholder and dishtowel $20 and spatula$13.95

Take a dish, leave a dish! The best gift for hostess that she'll be enjoying for dinners to come.

Create your favourite holiday treat and leave it in the dish for your hostess to keep.

This is great for the self-proclaimed foodies out there!

The Body Shop: Hand Wash and Lotion $20 OR Start of mini body butters$25

The harsh winters in Calgary are very drying, so moisturizer is a must.

The Body Shop offers an array of smells with their hand lotions and mini body butters such as pink grapefruit, strawberry and fuji green tea.

Do you hate that after washing your hands, the smell is gone?

Us too, and that's why they have some of the same scents for their hand wash.

How could you go wrong with this combo?

L’Occitane: Ornaments with mini samples in each $14

 

Holt Renfrew: Fortnum and Mason biscuits, jams and tea (individually each under $25) Eighty Seventh St. cards ($25)

Next to the iconic Tiffany blue would be the Holt Renfrew magenta pink bag! 

With their Holiday pop-up shop in full force, shop the Fortnum and Mason gifts. 

From Holiday biscuits to fesitive jams, theres something on everyones list. 

No need to get wrap as the magenta bag does all the talking!

Rocky Mountain Soap: each bath bomb is $5.95 each, wellness kits $26

For the lover of natural products or the one you love, give them the gift of natural relaxation.

Rocky Mountain Soap offers many bath bombs to choose from, but our favourite is the oatmeal & honey.

You can even opt for a wellness kit which includes an essential oil paired with a

wellness bath bomb for all those hard working elves in need of serenity.

H&M: Fuzzy Socks $14.99 or socks in ornaments $6.99

Christmas time means winter, and winter means snowy cold nights.

One of our favourite pastimes is to grab a book (say something about Indigo books for less than $25 too?),

throw on some warm clothes and read by the fireplace. H&M has a great selection of these fuzzy socks,

and you can even buy them inside little ornaments to hang on the tree.

Christmas morning, you and your family can pick them off the branches, slip them on your feet and stay warm all day long.

 

Cookies by George: Tinettes (6 cookies) $17.95

This is a great gift for the office, as everyone can split and share as they choose.

Pick from flavours such as chewy ginger, cappuccino chocolate chunk and double trouble chocolate chunk.

Grab their December feature cookie of shortbread and pecans before Santa eats them all!
