Unique Holiday Gifts for $25 and Under

We all have those people in our lives (it might actually be you) who are impossible to shop for--not because they are difficult, but because they have everything. So we've created a list of creative gifts we're pretty sure they don't have, won't re-gift, and will use or display with pride.


Marimo Moss Ball in a Repurposed Light Bulb ($17.50-$19.50).This cute little moss ball in an upcycled light bulb is a living algae that is so low maintenance even the blackest of thumbs can tend to it's needs. Plus, it looks super cool on a shelf or side table.


"Where I've Been" Scratch Map Travel Edition ($25). Everyone loves to travel so why not let the person in question scratch out where they've been? Or perhaps they'd like to plan where they'd like to go next. With it's lotto-style scratch off front and white map on the back to chart out flight patterns, this is an awesome conversation piece for anyone on your list.


TankBooks flip-top cigarette book ($11.90 each). No, we're not endorsing smoking---these are actual books, the size of a cigarette box. Perfect for someone on the move, or in place of a coffee table book (Us New Yorkers don't have a lot of room, so we often have to opt for smaller items) The titles are by authors of great stature, complete and unabridged with a type size that'??s easy to read.
