Our Five under $25


You have your list and you’re checking it twice. We know. And that list keeps spiraling.
Especially now that you have that new gift category called the “no less important but much tougher to buy for people”.

We mean the school teacher, the dance instructor, the babysitter, not to mention Great Aunt Mildred, your secret Santa at the office, and your girlfriend who has everything already.

We combed the stores and websites to find you five great gift picks (all priced under $25) to help save you time and money and get you finished with that list.

(Even better, we made sure all our picks can be purchased online or over the phone and be delivered.)

Yup, time and money—keep reading.

image 1. For the Family – MannerIsms Game

Give the gift that teaches them how to be on their “best behaviour” with this fun-for-the-whole-family dinner game created by two Toronto mom entrepreneurs. (Parents might learn some manners too!)

Available online at Mannerisms

image 2. For the New Parents – Safe Baby Handling Kit

Give the gift that makes them laugh. The makers of the Parenting Wheel of Responsibility, Wry Baby, have come up with possibly the funniest parenting book ever. It will be sure to make those overwhelmed new parents chuckle with its hilarious “do’s and dont’s” on baby care (and—bonus—it also comes with stickers and a mini Wheel of Responsibility).

Available at Amazon

image 3. For Great Aunt Mildred – Serenity Angel

Gift the gift that captures the spirit of the holidays. These pewter angel ornaments are decorated with beautiful inscriptions from inspirational women such as Mother Theresa, Coco Chanel and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Available at any Sheridan Nursery store near you. Call (416) 481-6429 to order for delivery.

image 4. For the Babysitter/Gymnastics Coach/Piano Teacher – Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Body Wash

Give the gift that they can’t eat but they will want to. This stuff feels good, smells good and is just plain old good (like a cinnamon bun should be). No calories and all about relaxation—doesn’t get better than that.

Available online at sephora

image 5. For the Girlfriend/Neighbour (the one you agreed not to exchange with but she showed up with a gift anyway, love her)—Yummy Stuff Cookies

Our friends at Yummy Stuff have put together a special treat just for SavvyMom subscribers.
Give the gift of a beribboned box filled with the yummiest (and we mean yummiest) and most beautiful cookies you have ever seen. Each one is a true work of art—almost too special to share.

Available online from Yummy Stuff (they deliver)

Hey, no thanks required. It was fun to research!
