10 Ornaments Under $25 That Make Fun Gifts
These thoughtful Christmas ornaments are proof that good things really do come in small packages.
In my opinion, a meaningful ornament is the perfect budget-friendly Christmas present. It's pretty yet practical (read: virtually guaranteed to get used at least once a year), costs just $10-$20 and yet carries a lot of sentimental value. Not to mention that ornaments work for family, friends, and even neighbors or teachers.
So, if you want to spoil a few lucky people on your list while sticking to budget, I say go with a heartfelt ornament. Here are 10 special gems for every person and occasion.
Buying a house is a huge accomplishment and definitely calls for a special ornament. Congratulate the new homeowners and commemorate their first Christmas in their new space with this adorable wood sign that says, "There's no place like home for the holidays." You can customize the front with their new zip code and write the year on the back.
Whether they've just defined the relationship or they've been together for years, the happy couple in your life will swoon over this festive photo ornament. They can slip a favorite picture into the "cab" of the truck and make it look like they've just left a tree farm. It's pretty much guaranteed to give them those warm-and-fuzzy feelings.
Consider this the perfect ornament for parents, grandparents, neighbors and more. Show how much the family has grown in the last year with this laser-cut penguin portrait. You can customize the number of grown-ups and kiddos and change the greeting at the bottom of the iceberg.
Add even more excitement to your bestie's recent move, graduation or engagement by gifting them with this bottle-of-bubbly ornament. The metallic tassel makes it look like champagne is spraying from the top, while gold numbers write out "2021" on the sides.
The new or expecting parents on your list will be so touched when they receive this precious stork ornament. The whimsical bird descends from a strand of twine as though in mid-flight and carries a special delivery in its beak. It will make an incredible gift and a lovely heirloom in the future.
If they just brought home a new four-legged friend, then surprise them with this classic pet photo ornament. A small silver disc attaches to the scarlet ribbon and marks the year, so they'll always remember their first Christmas together.
Earn squeals of delight from a new friend or your long-distance BFF by sending them a pair of peppermint mochas. The interlocking design will instantly remind them of how close you are (even when you're far apart!) and have them reminiscing on your coffee dates and other memories.
Everyone deserves to feel appreciated, but especially teachers. Thank your child's favorite educator, administrator, classroom helper or cafeteria worker with this sweet wooden apple ornament. The front reads, "You are making a difference every day," while the back is blank so your kiddo can sign their name.
Know a family that's open to a fun new tradition? Gift them this glittery pickle ornament. In your card, you can briefly explain the rules: Someone will hide the pickle in the tree, and the first person to find it on Christmas morning gets either an extra gift or the honor of handing out presents. (Plus good luck for the rest of the year!)
