When it comes to handing out presents in the $25 and under price range, it’s clear we’re talking about stocking stuffers. Keep in mind, though, that the term doesn’t necessarily denote bottom-of-the-barrel gift ideas. Value doesn’t automatically translate into shoddiness. After all, it’s the smallest items that are oftentimes the most useful on a daily basis. A multi-tool, a utility bag to store all the cables and chargers that accompany your numerous electronic devices, and a good old-fashioned pocket notebook – these are the kinds of thoughtful gifts your friends, co-workers and family members will appreciate.
