Holiday Shopping - 5 Gifts Under $25

Writing holiday gift guides isn't particularly my forte, but this year, despite the bleak economy, I got into the holiday shopping mood a bit earlier than usual. In fact, I'm just about done with my holiday shopping. Having shopped at a variety of places including malls, discounters, big box retailers, and outlets this December, I've gained inspiration for a mini gift guide and I've decided to feature Marshalls and TJ Maxx, known for their wide variety of merchandise and low prices. Here are five gift ideas, all under $25 each.


1. For your best friend or sister - multi-strap patent Mary Janes, $24.99 at Marshalls. The glossy finish, medium-height heel, and slightly pointy toe makes these pumps chic and comfortable. They'd be just as perfect for a New Years celebration or for happy hour with co-workers.

2. For the ski bunny or junior fashionista - rainbow chevron striped vest by Jack by BB Dakota, $16.99 at Marshalls. With all of these bright colors, this 1980s-inspired vest is sure to cheer someone up. I'd bet that you'll never get lost in a crowd while wearing it.

3. For your dad, co-worker, or father-in-law - a cashmere Geoffrey Beene scarf, $7.99 at TJ Maxx. A scarf is such a versatile gift, it can be worn so many ways. The soft cashmere adds a nice touch of luxury to anyone's life, and they'll think you spent so much more.

4. For your mom, aunt, or co-worker - Etienne Aigner leopard gloves, $19.99 at TJ Maxx. The leopard print adds a touch of elegance to any outfit, and the thick construction means they'll last for years.

5. For anyone else who seems to have everything and isn't on a no-carb diet - various flavored teas and Santa Barbara Biscotti - $3.99 - $6.99 each at TJ Maxx. Why not get creative and put together a custom gift bag or basket filled with scrumptious snacks for your loved ones? They'll love the personal touch. Biscotti comes in anise almond, chocolate hazelnut, and pecan praline flavors - yum!
