Five thoughtful holiday gifts under $25

Find the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list — all while supporting the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.


The holidays might look a little different this year, but you may still be faced with the age-old search for a gift that's both useful and meaningful. If you're looking to give an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift, we’ve created a short list of gender-neutral gifts under $25 that almost anyone can appreciate. What's even better is knowing that each of these doubles as a charity donation.

Every item on our list benefits the work being done at St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. There's no better way to get in the holiday spirit than to give back with each purchase on your list.


1. Chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake dip mix


Every word in the title of this dip will make your mouth water. Simple enough for those who don't like to cook (just add cream cheese and chocolate chips!), while also delicious enough to impress those with gourmet tastes, this dip makes an inexpensive and tasty gift.
