2023 Gift Guide: Under $25 & Best Stocking Stuffers.


Gift guide week is HERE! We’re kicking this off with the best stocking stuffer gifts – these gifts are all under $25!

I love making gift guides and this is crazy – it’s my 13th year making them. This is always my favorite gift guide to make. It’s easily the price range where I find myself buying the most gifts – whether it’s for a grab bag family gift (we pick names in a few instances in our family and it’s GREAT – highly suggest doing this if you haven’t yet.), a stocking stuffer, a teacher gift, a work gift, etc. And I have SO MANY IDEAS for you here.

Most of the things you’ll find in my gifts guides won’t be a huge surprise – I’ve talked about most of them throughout the years in my monthly favorites posts. There are repeats from years past, because I want to make sure I’m recommending something I have, use, gifted and/or love. However, I’ve scoured the internet and lots of my favorite places to curate a guide of things I really, truly love, and plan on gifting. This is my favorite list!

As usual, I’m sharing gift guides in addition to my regular content, so if these aren’t of interest to you, there will still be new recipes and/or Crumbs content every day!


Everyday Dinners! My newest book is current under $20 – the best price I’ve seen so far! I have no idea when that price will change, so stock up for some holiday gifts!

The Pretty Dish. My second cookbook is also listed under $25 right now – a fantastic price for gifting!

Lidded Tree Mug. These are the star of the show on my hot cocoa bar this year.

  1. Excellent gift guide.  So Many good ideas.  Thanks for all your hard work putting this together.

  2. All nice ideas!!!

  3. A heads up! None of the Anthropologie links are working for me. 

    • oh no, really? they are working for me. what browser are you using??

      • My iPhone and iPad. So Safari? 

      • Works on my laptop.  So maybe it’s something with my iOS? It’s strange because only Anthropologie doesn’t load. Maybe my husband decided I needed to give them a break. 😂

  4. I LOVE your gift lists and suggestions. This time I got the personal popcorn popper. I’ve purchased several items suggested for kids too and all have been great. Oh, and your recipes are perfection too. Thank you.

  5. OMG, the best Gift Guide yet!!  Just bought at least 10 things from your list and checked off so many gifts.  Best thing is, I feel I found some unique and personal items that my friends and family will love.  Thanks for all of your suggestions!
