Local Holiday Gift Ideas Under $25
It feels like every year, the list of people who I need to buy holiday gifts for grows exponentially. I put pressure on myself to think up unique gifts for each special person in my life. This long list of gift recipients coupled with a desire to give something other than a Starbucks gift card can become quite stressful. If you’re in a similar pickle, I’ve grouped together some great options for some types of people you might have in your life. Everything on this list is under $25 and from a local shop in Jersey City!
