Last Minute Local Gifts for Under $25

By Kearsten Shepherd

We all know how hard it is to shop for that one friend or family member that has everything, or that person in the office you don’t know that well but got stuck with for the office gift exchange. Well have no fear friends, GOTG is here to help you find the perfect gift for anyone!

Each year, Girls on the Grid gets together for our annual holiday party and gift exchange. We celebrate the year, eat delicious food made by some of our writers and share libations – it’s the very best. To make things interesting we all bring our gifts wrapped and exchange them that way until the end of the game -no stealing or anything like that. Each girl pulls a tag out of a “hat” that prompts them to exchange with someone specific in the room. Since you never know who will get your gift, you have to find something that will be universally loved. There are only two rules, it has to be around $25 and it has to be from somewhere local (on the grid or pretty close).

This year we all made out with some great things we want to share with you in hopes of helping you find a last minute gift for those in your life that may be difficult to shop for. Below is our gift guide –  some of our best finds from local retailers! Happy holidays from all of us here at Girls on the Grid!
