Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you can't wow your family and friends with some thoughtful and unique gifts. Listen, I'm all for splurging and being generous with loved ones, but sometimes the best gifts are ones that don't cost a ton of money. My attitude toward gifting is that as long as there's some meaning behind a present, it doesn't matter if it's a $100 gift or a $5 one.
That's why I always like giving wellness-inspired gifts—because even if it's a $15 bath bomb, I know my friend will get some relaxation and "me" time from it. When I share a wellness gift with someone, I'm essentially telling them I care about their well-being and what to help them take care of themselves. These types of presents are always useful, and I'd say they get good reviews pretty much 100% of the time.
I've compiled a list of wellness gift ideas that don't cost more than $25. Trust me—your loved ones will appreciate them.
