Let’s face it. The holidays are expensive. When it comes to gift ideas we at MAKE naturally advocate making your gifts because it can be a lot cheaper and, well, we’re MAKE. That’s what we do. But if you’re busy like us, there’s no way you’re making all your gifts. You’ve got to buy some of them. But fear not. We asked around the office for maker-friendly gifts that won’t break your holiday budget. And if you don’t get want you want this year, think about buying one of these items for yourself. They’re all less than $25. You’re worth at least that much.

See all our 2013 holiday gift guides here.
