Best Gifts for Your Holiday Gift Swap (Under $25!)

All through school, Secret Santa was one of my all-time favorite traditions. Whether it was just contained in a group of friends or grade-wide, I loved dropping hints throughout the week and the big reveal at the end. Fun fact: I once made the girl I had start a conga line to get her hint for the day. So it’s an understatement that I take this kind of seriously. Here are my nine favorite under $25 gifts for whatever holiday gift swap you’re doing this year.

Thanksgiving Favorites

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it’s the only one where my entire family is together. Though a lot of my family lives in the same city as me, a good portion lives out of state. I love having everyone come together to celebrate and be thankful for each other and everything we have. The fall color scheme of the decor is gorgeous, everything is warm and cozy, and the food is delicious. I’ll be in the kitchen cooking with my grandma or laughing with my cousins in the living room. And one thing I absolutely can’t wait for are the pumpkin cupcakes with homemade whipped cream frosting I make every year! (That recipe’s coming to this blog soon!) I’m looking forward to being surrounded by my family, my friends coming to visit from out of town, and the delicious food. There’s so much to love about Thanksgiving and these nine things are only a few of my favorites to make the holiday picturesque.
