15 Unique Gifts for Christmas: $20 Crowd-Pleaser Gift Ideas!

Need some easy & awesome Christmas gift ideas? These 15 unique items are perfect for your $20 Christmas Grab-bag! Each gift is a great, neutral, holiday crowd-pleaser!

Grab-bag style Christmas parties can be fun, if you don’t end up stuck with the ugly Christmas sweater. Unless you actually wanted it…

Ugly, hipster Christmas sweaters are totally in now! Ha ha.

Weather you are attending a family party, work party, seeing the in-laws or a get-together with friends, unique Christmas grab-bag gift ideas may be a challenge. (By the way, there are no ugly sweaters on my great gift guide!)


Hey Boss Mama, I know you probably already have a crazy long list of people to buy holiday gifts for this season… just like every year. Some of you may find it even more stressful to have to find a grab-bag gift. When the gift is for a general audience, it may feel like it doesn’t seem personal. And you don’t want to get a generic, useless or cheesy gift. It’s tough to please everyone, for sure! I understand. You need a crowd-pleaser gift! That’s why I am here to help, and offer some great suggestions!

Have you also thought about your holiday budget? Did you go waaaaaaaay over budget last year? Did you set a budget at all?… The little extras, last-minute gifts, and impulse purchases can get out of hand! I know so many families that are capping off their Christmas spending by setting a strict budget this year. I plan to do the same this season! We have to tame that debt!! That is why my list is specifically set for $20 gift ideas!

Everyone is thinking more frugally, organizing the finances, and prioritizing extra spending. We can all probably use a little reminder to be aware of our household budgets during the holidays! I’ve got you covered with that, too! I can help you control and organize your household and holiday budget!
