The holiday season can take a toll on your wallet. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans may spend about $478 on gifts for the family, and a few hundred more on top of that when you add in friends, coworkers, and others. But, as the old adage “it’s the thought that counts” reminds us, you don’t need something flashy to impress your loved ones.

With that in mind, we scoured the internet for 25 gifts $25 and under – all sold by Latino-owned shops and some you’ll want to keep for yourself.
