Some people enjoy purchasing extravagant wedding gifts of offering up a ton of cash on this day for the happy couple. However, if you’re on a budget, you can still give a valuable wedding gift for $25 or less.
Instead of going big and over the top, just opt for a more sentimental personal gift that the couple can cherish and enjoy long term. Check out these awesome wedding gifts for under $25.

If you can’t think of anything, consider wedding picture frames and decor as a wedding gift that will be greatly appreciated.
6. Kitchen Items
Kitchen items and cookware are other great wedding gifts for under $25. The newlyweds may even have some items on their registry. My husband and I added practical items to our wedding registry like glass containers, cutting boards, and a crock pot.

Consider customizing the item you get by having the couple’s name engraved or their wedding date. This personalized bamboo cutting board looks amazing and it’s only around $21.
