Whether you're shopping on a budget or you just need to scratch your Secret Santa off your to-buy-for list, there are plenty of options that don't cost a ton but still feel like a real gift. Because the last thing you want is to drain your bank account, or make anyone feel shafted.
Here are 11 food-themed presents for $25 or less.
- Yay! Tray, $22 at Gretel: Yay, indeed! This typographic tray looks like it should have cost so much more.
- Coffee & Donut Earrings, $20 at Yellow Owl Workshop: Give these earrings — with 22-karat-gold and hypoallergenic posts — to the teen in your life who's 13 going on 30.
- Disco Cactus Sipper Cup, $12 at Urban Outfitters: The lucky recipient of this rose gold cactus cup doesn't need to have a green thumb — she just needs to be thirsty.
- Farmers Are Heroes Tote Bag, $20 at Brika: Truer words have never been printed on a tote bag. Get this for your friend who never misses a Saturday morning trip to the farmers market.
- Food & Drink Quiz Game, $12 at Bloomingdale's: Cards Against Humanity is fun and all, but it's not quite food-related enough for our tastes. This trivia game, however, is all about food, asking questions about Lindt chocolate and pesto, for example.
- White Butter Knife, $12 at Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.: Got a friend who only eats bread because it's a vehicle to deliver butter to her mouth? She needs this enamel-coated steel knife, which can also be used for soft cheese and nut butter.
- Pineapple Trivet, $19 at West Elm: This brass-finished trivet is pretty enough to sit out on the table when not in use. And it might inspire your Secret Santa to eat more fruit.
- Friends and Beer Keytag, $15 at Seltzer Goods: Featuring two of the most important things in life, this leather keychain is simple and to the point — just like your BFF.
- Matcha Whisk, $25 at W&P Design: For your friend who's newly into matcha, this battery-powered whisk will help her make it at home. Bonus: She can also use it to froth milk or mix sauces.
- Crinkle Bowls, $7 each at CB2: These playful stoneware bowls look like cupcake wrappers and can be used to hold nuts or candy during parties.
- LED Egg Light, $10 at Kikkerland: This porcelain egg light is touted for being great in kids' rooms, but we love it for an office white elephant swap to help brighten up a coworker's desk. There's also a pineapple light we love for $12.50
