Last minute Christmas gift ideas under $25 in Albany

Great local Christmas gift ideas for under $25

Christmas is right around corner and it never fails that I have forgotten someone or have some “Dirty Santa” party I still need a gift for.  We can always hit the local Walmart or Target but those lines are always a battle.  So if you are pressed for time, wanting to be frugal, and also want to shop local, here are some great gift ideas specific to the Albany area that you can grab for the guys and gals.


Candles and Koozies from Knights

Swan Creek candles and a SouthLife leather can koozie 

We all love a good koozie and these hand-crafted leather koozies by SouthLife Supply Company are a perfect Christmas gift for guys and gals.  Do you know the person you are shopping for loves candles?  The Swan Creek Candle company offers these gorgeous candles that are clean burning and 100% Soy!  Knights has about everything for the guy or gal on your Christmas list. 

Grab both at $20 a piece.

A growler from Creekside Market

A 64 oz. growler from Creekside Market

64 ounces of beer or Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is a great gift that keeps on giving all year round (Cousin Eddie approved).  Creekside Market in Lee County is one of a kind in the area and serves craft brews from all over the state of Georgia.  

Grab a full one for $20.

Bandannas by jojo 

These one of a kind designs by jojo are gorgeous.  The bandannas can be worn casually, as a dressy look, or if you want to be a cowboy/girl for a day.  They are multi-useful, throw them on your place setting as a decorative napkin or they could give your pet that bit of pizzazz they’ve always wanted.

Grab one for $20 at many local places like Blush or Backstage.

Hand crafted bowls by Levie Rainey

These great bowls (and cups) are hand-made right here in South GA.  They offer that unique one-of-a-kind look that is hard to find anywhere else. Grab a cup of the delicious coffee at Temp Coffee and Brew in Lee County while browsing these great designs.

Grab yours for $25

#ChooseLocal Gift Cards

Everyone loves to eat and drink!  Gift cards are always an easy gift to get anyone on your list.  You can grab a gift card about anywhere in the Albany area but some places offer a bonus for getting a gift card from them.  Austin’s Firegrill & Oyster Bar, Newk’s Eatery, and Locos Grill and Pub all offer a $5 bonus gift card for every $25 increment.  Give a little to someone and get a little back!
