Finally, after months of waiting, the holiday season has finally approached! Despite the lack of snow and cold weather so far, it is quite easy to get into the holiday spirit with the plethora of music that is played throughout the season. Until the big day, there is always the stress of what to get for family members and friends for the holidays. If you are a last minute person and want to purchase something under $25, here are 3 ideas for gifts that you can give to your friends and family that they will love.

1. Lokai Bracelet
The Lokai brand bracelet has become increasingly popular due to its story about balance. The two main beads on the bracelet are said to represent the highest and lowest point in one’s life, as based on the life of the creator, Steven Izen.
According to the website, he said,“A few years ago, I found myself in a moment of sadness, for my grandfather who had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.”

From the experience, he designed the bracelet so that the black bead represents mud from the Dead Sea, or the lowest point, and the white bead represents water from Mt. Everest, or the highest point.
This gift is perfect for those who love jewelry with a meaning, similar to Alex and Ani bracelets.

2. Candles
With the temperatures starting to drop, what could be better than a warm, scented candle? Candles are always a perfect gift for anyone who wants to keep cozy in the winter as the days continue to get shorter. Furthermore, candles are easy because they come in a myriad of scents, which allows them to be personalized for anyone!

3. Gift Basket
This may be one of the most generic gifts, but you can personalize it to make it perfect for whoever is receiving the gift.
For example, if someone is a sugar lover, you could give them an assortment of wrapped candy and present this in a small basket with a ribbon.

Or if they like to read, give them a selection of their favorite type of books to read so that they can have some new material to read for the new year!

Gift baskets are a fun surprise for anyone who likes multiple and smaller items rather than one single item.
