Foodie Gift Guide: 12 Gifts Under $25

If you’re like me, you’re probably way behind on holiday tasks: getting gifts, making treats, and mailing (or making…) your Christmas cards. A fun little habit I have is avoiding stress by pretending to-do list tasks don’t exist. Smart, right? Yeah. Until you’re LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY FROM CHRISTMAS AND YOU STILL HAVE PACKAGES TO MAIL AND A MILLION THINGS TO DO. Ahhhh. *commence internal panicking*

The holiday stress is why I made this list: a perfect gift-giving guide for the food lovers in your life; and what’s more, all the gifts are super affordable! #budgetbenefits

Here’s to enjoying gift-giving, without the holiday hyperventilation! Hoo-rah.
