There’s something about an affordable find (and especially one with Prime shipping) that I just can’t say no to. I think it’s because when I hear about a product that my friends are loving, I feel like I HAVE to try it for myself. I like to know first hand if something is great, and when it’s under $25 it feels like a no-brainer. And since Christmas shopping is fully upon us, I have even more excuses to place frivolous Amazon orders, ha!
Today I’m sharing 25 items under $25 that I absolutely love from Amazon. I had stockings in mind while writing this post, and I think every single thing on this list would be a perfect little stocking stuffer. I’ve put all of these ideas + a few more things into an Amazon Idea List called Stocking Stuffers for Her in case you want to shop that way!
Let’s get right into it!
I bought this portable charging power bank right before all of the traveling I did for work over the last two weeks. I knew I’d be using my phone even more than usual at those work conferences, and I figured a slim power bank that didn’t have a ton of cords attached to it would be nice. I LOVED having this thing. The size was small enough to put in my clutch for evening events, and it will fully charge an iPhone 14 one time. I just plugged the power bank into it’s charger at night beside my phone so that it was never dead.
Everyone needs one of these in their stocking this Christmas. I’m serious. Every single person.
I’ve been using and loving this volumizing foam in my hair for years now. The ingredients are clean and safe, and I’m able to achieve the natural looking volume I want without my hair feeling “crunchy”. I use it on wet hair before I blow dry.
I loved these ginger chews before I was pregnant with Thomas, but they literally saved me while I was pregnant (and nauseous) with Thomas. And they’re helping again this go-round with baby #2. If you’re not pregnant, I love how these cleanse my palette after a meal. They’re a sweet treat too, which helps.
I’ve tried a few different brands and I’m honestly not that picky. You can read all about the benefits of ginger chews in this blog post I wrote a few years back.
If you’ve never used a PopSocket on your phone, you’ll be forever changed once you do. It helps you hold on your phone easily without straining your hand. And if you lay your phone on a surface horizontally, it will prop it up so that you can see your screen (great for kids shows in a pinch). You can even buy other PopSocket accessories like this phone mount for your car that works with the PopSocket to prop your phone up on your air vent. Then you can be hands free with your navigation.
I also LOVE this silicone phone case. It’s sleek and pretty, but the PopSocket still sticks to the back. If you want to feel like you have a brand new phone, just order this case/PopSocket combo.
I’m weirdly obsessed with David’s Natural Toothpaste for a few reasons. It’s free of sodium lauryl sulfate, so it doesn’t create foam when you brush (I hate toothpaste that does this). It’s also made with all clean/safe ingredients, and uses a little key to help push the paste to the top of the tube. I love the retro design, and the actual toothpaste is great too.
If you’ve never used a microfiber hair towel, you will LOVE this thing. It removes much more water than a regular towel so hair dries faster. I also love that I don’t have to wear a heavy towel on my head while I get ready when I use this. It’s light, comfortable, and gets my hair 70% dry before I blow it out. This would be a great stocking stuffer for a daughter or mom.
I discovered this Lululemon lookalike a year ago and have used it weekly since! It’s exactly like the Lululemon version but only $15! The Amazon version comes in more colors, ships faster, and looks (and feels) almost identical. I did a side by side comparison and I genuinely think this one is just as great as the Lulu version.
I discovered the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask for the first time at the Amazon Creator Summit and could not believe I didn’t know about it sooner. I’ve been using it for a few weeks sense and love how it feels when I apply it, and I truly do notice a difference in my lips in the morning. I also really like the scent. Definitely put this in your cart to gift to girlfriends this Christmas.
Until you have one of these phone stands, you don’t know how useful they are. I love using it on top of my desk so that I can see my phone while I work, but if you aren’t an office girl, you may prefer to use it when looking at recipes while cooking, watching reels while you do your makeup (no shame!), or something similar. Teen or college age girls will LOVE this.
You don’t know a good shave until you use this Billie shaving cream. Not only is the cream itself super smooth and amazing, but the packaging is already great. You squeeze this plastic bottle rather than dispensing through a metal can, so you never get rust stains in your shower. Throw this in everyone’s stockings this year.
Beautycounter discontinued their amazing makeup remover wipes so I had to search high and low for a new brand, and these Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes have been the perfect alternative! They aren’t rough on the skin, they have no harmful ingredients, and they are individually packaged which makes them so easy to throw in your gym bag, purse, travel toiletry bag, etc.
I am absolutely blown away by this $21 travel essential. I used to take 3 separate toiletry bags on trips (one for skincare, one for makeup, one for hair). Now, I’m able to fit all of my makeup and all of my skincare (which is a 6 step routine) in this one bag. And it takes up less space than my Barrington bag did with just my makeup. I recorded a video showing you how much it fits and how small it zips up, so you can have an idea for just how great this thing is.
This new squeeze bottle design is becoming a big trend for olive oils right now because of this brand! Graza makes two olive oils, a finishing oil that’s for tasting, and an olive oil for cooking. They’re on the pricey end for olive oils, but if you have a cook in your life (or you just like a fun kitchen find like this), you’ll like Graza!! It has a touch of kick to it and a lot of flavor.
Another gift you will thank me for later. I may just be lazy, but I despise fishing for my phone charger once I’m already in bed. This little cord wrangler is magnetic and your cords just sit right on top so they’re ready when you need them.
If you have any lingering smells in your home that you can’t seem to shake, these little odor removing gel containers are your answer. These are used by lots of interior designers because they don’t add any smell to your room or attempt to mask it, but this gel actually absorbs the bad smells. They’re great under furniture and help keep your house smelling fresh. Hannah bought a couch on Facebook Marketplace that didn’t smell totally new, and these have helped a lot!
These Nippies Nipple Covers are technically $26, but I had to include them since they’re such a great wardrobe staple for me. These little covers work perfectly for unlined swimsuits, dresses that don’t require a real bra, and anything you wear that needs a little more coverage.
I ordered this faux cashmere blanket for our living room this spring, and I love how it looks! It’s thin and lightweight, so it’s a perfect option for your outdoor living space or a hostess gift. I love all of the color options.
I know that not everyone has specific pen needs ;), but if you like a fine tip pen, you will love this set of 20 gel pens! For $11, it’s hard to beat 20 colors.
I truly believe everyone needs one of these small space drying racks. It saves so much space! If you’re someone who hang dries your clothes, you’ll like this so much more than a full-size drying rack. I put it on the back of my door since I can’t reach the shower curtain rod, but it’d be easier to use on a rod!
This little hook goes on the back of your passenger seat head rest and holds your bag. It’s so nice to have a place to hang my purse since I hate when it rolls around on the floorboard and the contents spill out when I have a passenger in my front seat.
I love this little ring cleaner pen! I use it to clean off my engagment ring every so often. And since the pen is so easy to use, my ring stays clean all the time. I keep this little pen in my purse. Snag this set of two and give one to a newly engaged friend.
This Simple Modern 40 oz Tumbler is another item that’s just over the $25 budget, but it’s worth including since it’s only $29 and SO great. I like it much more than the Stanley tumbler that everyone raves about. This one is cheaper, doesn’t leak, is lighter in your hand, and holds just as much water.
These dishcloths are so much better than a regular sponge. They still clean all of the grit and grime off of your dishes, but they dry faster and can be easily washed in your dishwasher, so they don’t spell bad as quickly.
I actually go get my nails done pretty regularly since I am on camera for my job, but when I don’t have time to get a manicure, I always use this LONDONTOWN Illuminating Nail Concealer. It’s like a clear coat, but with just enough pigment to mask any imperfections on your nails. It’s super natural, and just gives the appearance that your hands and nails are clean. It’s the perfect everyday shade for anyone who likes to have something on their nails.
There are a few shades, but milky is the most natural in my option.
I have thick hair and I hate when ponytail holders leave a crease! These hair ties are magic. They hold my hair up all day and don’t leave any “dents” in my hair.
If you have any $25 or below Amazon favorites, I would love to know! Leave a link in the comments!
