So you want to find fun Christmas gift ideas for your friends and loved ones. That’s fantastic! Giving practical gifts are all well and good as it helps ensure that those you care about have everything they need in order to venture into the New Year, but Christmas gifts shouldn’t just be about what people need or expect. It is important to remind others (and yourself) that Christmas is a not just a season for giving, but a season for sharing gentle embraces and laughter as well. Thus, providing one or two fun mini-gifts along with your main ‘Santa Gift’ is a great way to spread some smiles! And I can help provide you with a few fun ideas right away that are all under $25!

I don’t know about you, but I have always been bonkers for Nessie! Who wouldn’t be? The creature is portrayed as a gigantic lovable dinosaur who lives in the Loch Ness Lake in Scotland- and now he can live in your tea while delivering your favourite flavours! The infuser is made from silicone and is dishwasher safe.

Much like the Loch Ness Monster infuser- these animal card-holders are also made of silicone. They are rich in colour and design, and are great for holding small cards or memos. The holders come in the shapes of turtles, hedgehogs and armadillos. (CLICK HERE to see the different colour options).

We all know that hiding a spare key to your home outdoors isn’t the safest thing to do these days. HOWEVER, if you are super creative, there are ways of hiding your key outside where only YOU will find it- and this item is one of them! The key holder is made of highly realistic design to fool anyone into believing that it is just another rock in your garden. But secretly it opens up so you can hide your spare key inside it. A great gift for anyone who has a habit of locking themselves out of their house 😉 It would also make a great gag-gift or holder for extra planting seed.

Do you have a friend or loved one who’s constantly being badgered by their other half to take-out the recycling? If so, they would probably get a huge kick out of this novelty mug! The item is ceramic and made to look like the blue recycling bins for those who are environmentally conscious 🙂 The mug can hold up to 12 ounces of fluid, but must be hand washed only. A very amusing gift indeed! (I want to get one for my hubby 😉 )

Yep, this sounds familiar! Life can be extremely demanding- we work, go to school, take care of our family and pets- and it is so hard to remember everything else we planned to do during the weeks to come. So in most cases- we just don’t bother. But having a journal around would go a long way to being more productive! Especially when the journal has a humerus title to remind us! I bet if someone were to keep this by their bedside they would remember that being productive is both important and fun!
It’s a gift that’s both practical and jolly… works for me!

Not very many people use physical posted notes anymore, but even if we don’t use them for work reminders or grocery lists- we can still use them to leave little love messages for our partners 🙂 And it’s really hard (in my opinion) to not use small slips of paper when they are being given to you by an adorable little kitty! That’s right. This cute device dispenses post-it notes. If you need to get a fun gift for a cat lover- you can’t go wrong with this one!
That’s all the ‘fun’ gifts I have for now folks, but I hope you got a kick out of this article as well as some really cool ideas for the upcoming holiday! Please feel free to leave a comment below. I would love to hear your thoughts.
