Gift Exchange Gift Guide


Happy Friday! I’m sure I’m not the only to be relieved it’s the weekend. I had multiple final projects due this week, so I’m excited for a relaxing weekend full of Christmas movies and Alabama football.


One gift guide I am really excited to pull together this holiday season is list for a gift exchange. These can be tough, especially when you want to get something thoughtful that they’ll actually use. I rounded up a variety of products that are all under $25. A few of them can also be personalized by color too, making them versatile for those who are harder to shop for.


I can almost guarantee a waffle maker will be a unique gift at a gift exchange! I found this snowflake one for under $10 and think it would be such a fun surprise. In a season when going out to brunch is no longer the norm, this would be fun for creating brunch right at home.


The headband trend is great in my opinion because it’s easy to find ones that are affordable. This pink velvet headband is perfect for winter and also comes in a pretty deep bluish-purple color. It’s on sale today for under $10.


If there is one item I seem to always dig for in my backpack, it’s my AirPods. This case hooks right onto a key chain and comes in over ten colors. Though it’s $11, I think it would make a versatile gift for someone who may be harder to shop for.


Where are my seltzer girls at?! I love Truly Lemonades and have admittedly wanted a Brumate for a while. Slip your seltzer can in so you don’t have to hold a chilly can and you’re good to go! These also come in tons of colors and are under $20.

Shopping for a gift exchange that includes guys? A Yeti mug would be a great contribution that I can guarantee will be well used. I got one for my mom for Mother’s Day this year, and she uses it every day. This is another item that comes in many colors and is $25.


A classic mug is another fool-proof gift. These fun initial mugs from Target are really cute and personal. They are $5 making them inexpensive and could easily hold some yummy candy or a $5 gift card inside for a $10 price limit.


I’m a firm believer everyone needs an ice roller in their freezer, ha! I use mine almost every day and can feel how my face is less puffy afterward. This is another $25 gift that I think would be well-loved by any recipient.


Candles are a classic gift exchange choice. This pink grapefruit soy candle is under $25 and has glowing reviews. It has over 60 hours of burn time and is hand-poured. This is another gift that would be enjoyed beyond the holiday season.


If you know who you’re shopping for, this Evelyn Henson sticker set may be a great choice! The set is $6 and has yummy images of avocado toast, coffee and a charcuterie board. How fun?!


Mask-wearing will continue for the foreseeable future, and a mask chain would make a great gift that would get good use. This simple and elegant gold one is under $20 and would be versatile for different styles and age groups.


Though I love my Trulys, I love a good cocktail too. These fun citrus stirrers are under $20 and would be a fun gift for a friend.


I hope this post helps you in your gift exchange present planning this holiday season or added some inspiration for future ones!
