Do you give gifts to your neighbors and/or co-workers for the holidays? I think it’s such a fun way to connect with others and share something to show you’re thinking of them during a busy season. My favorite gifts are both thoughtful and practical, which can be a hard line to walk when you’re on a budget. But our neighbor/co-worker holiday gift guide for 2021 fits the bill! Check out these tried and true ideas—all for under $25!
