Christmas Eve gift ideas for adults under $20 that you’re going to love

If you’re looking for Christmas Eve box fillers for adults, you’re in the right place, as this post is all about stuff you can buy for your Christmas Eve box for adults.

Presents don’t have to be expensive. What matters is the meaning behind them. You can give someone a present that costs $500, but if it has no meaning for them or you, then what’s the point?

As you know, Christmas is coming soon. If you’re anything like me, you’ll leave the gift shopping until the very last minute. This year I’m going to prevent that and, luckily for you, I’ve come up with a gift guide to help you out. Without further ado, let’s dive into it!

A face mask combo pack is one of those cheap but thoughtful Christmas Eve gift ideas, because who doesn’t love pampering themselves? There are a lot of different masks for different skin types, so do your research before buying.

However, you can never go wrong with this affordable face mask combo pack that consists of 24 different types of sheet masks that will make your skin healthier, clearer, and more elastic. I really like it as it offers a wide variety of masks, so everyone will find something suitable for them.


If you’re looking for $20 box fillers for someone who’s really into movies, then this 100 movie scratch-off poster is a perfect choice. It’s a scratchable, must-see movie poster that keeps things fun and fresh by letting you discover brand new movies to watch under easy-to-scratch foil.

What’s also fun is that it has a built-in star rating system, so you can pretend to be a film critic and express your opinion about the movies you’ve watched. It also includes a wooden frame, so you can hang it wherever you’d like to.


This skincare gift set by Burt’s Bees is so cute. It consists of six travel-size products: Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Cream, Coconut Foot Cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Almond & Milk Hand Cream, and Hand Salve and Pomegranate Lip Balm.

It’s made of natural ingredients that both soften and hydrate dry skin from head to toe. I really like sets that consist of travel-size products, as it gives me the opportunity to try out different products without being afraid that they’d go to waste.

You’re probably not surprised to see this very chic essential oil diffuser among these Christmas Eve box fillers for adults. If you haven’t heard of diffusers before, let’s talk about what these bad boys can do.

Diffusers are primarily used to 1. humidify the room, keeping your airways moist, and 2. disperse essential oils throughout the air. Certain essential oils can boost your mood and immune system and make it easier for you to breathe.


Coloring books for adults? Yes, please. I’ve talked about the soothing effects of art before, but I’m going to mention it again. Adult coloring can relax you because it takes attention away from yourself, it relaxes your brain, and the low stakes make it pleasurable (it’s quite hard to mess up, right?).

This cool adult coloring book set has over 100+ images of animals, mandalas (geometric shapes), and different scenery. The patterns are actually pretty stress-relieving and can be colored by both beginners and experts.


This thin wireless charger is certainly among my favorite Christmas Eve gift ideas for adults. I’m not very good with wires and cables. I tend to break or damage them. That’s when wireless chargers come in handy.

This charger is a must-have for tech-lovers (but first, make sure it’s compatible with their phone). It looks chic, and it actually keeps your desk really organized. Besides, it supports fast charging, which is a must-have nowadays, since we’re all always busy and in a hurry.


A screen magnifier for your phone so that you can watch movies on a bigger screen? Oh, where have I been? This is another must-have for tech-lovers or teenagers who watch a lot of Netflix.

This cool 12″ screen magnifier is compatible with most phones and, believe it or not, does not require batteries. It’s lightweight and portable and actually helps to relieve the visual fatigue and discomfort that come from focusing on a small screen for long periods of time.


This mini portable microphone is a fun present for people who appreciate a good joke. You can just plug it in and start recording, anytime, anywhere, without an external power supply. It’s also lightweight, high-quality, and easy to take along. What else do you need from a mini microphone?


This super affordable mini waffle maker comes in 19 different AWESOME designs, so there’s something suitable for everyone. A little sneak peek: they have a heart-shaped waffle machine and also a bunny-shaped one!!! Ugh, I need them all…

Besides being super affordable, it’s also super easy to use and clean. And!!! Last but not least, it’s not meant only for waffles. You can use it to make hash browns, cookies, and even biscuit pizzas! 


When I was looking for Christmas Eve box ideas for adults, I stumbled across this chic egg cooker that you can use to cook hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and even individual omelets.

It’s a must-have present for people who live alone or even students who don’t have time to cook. It’s compact, lightweight (so it’s suitable for small apartments), and trust me, it’s very easy to use. If you know someone who eats a lot of eggs, this is the perfect present for them.


A cheap wireless key finder like this one is a perfect present for people who always forget where their stuff is (hi, me!). This tracker helps you locate your belongings from up to 131ft (40 meters) away in open space.

It comes with four color-coded receivers to attach keys, wallets, remotes, glasses, phones, dog collars, or other things that are easy to lose through the provided keyrings. All you have to do is press the matching button, follow the beep sound and locate them conveniently.


If you’re looking for Christmas Eve box fillers for adults, or even for adults, this 16-color moon lamp is one of the most useful things you should consider. It has a realistic full-moon shape, and you can choose between 16 colors that can flash, fade, or strobe.

It’s a great present for people who are afraid of the dark (hi, me, again!). Besides changing colors, you can also adjust the brightness. And let’s be honest, it makes a really great home decor element as well.

If you haven’t read the You Are a Badass book before, I highly suggest you give it a go. This You Are a Badass day-to-day calendar is based on that book, and it basically encourages you to take control of your life, increase your positive energy, and create your dream life.

It’s a perfect gift idea for someone who wants to up their personal development game. It has daily quotes that will help you let go of your inner critic, it has tear-off pages, and it’s overall a really great calendar to help you organize your life.


A popsocket that comes with a lip balm is one of those really cheap but thoughtful ideas. Actually, it’s one of those things I would give my teenage sisters, as I know they’d really appreciate it.

This popsocket with a lip balm is super useful. The popsocket itself helps you to easily hold and stand your phone, and, as a nice bonus, it includes a REFILLABLE lip balm that’s made of natural ingredients.


I know that portable travel bottles aren’t the first thing that comes to your mind, but hear me out. These portable travel bottles really come in handy during these tense times. You can fill them with hand sanitizer and, since they’re both leakproof and quite tiny, you can take them everywhere.

I really like that they’re refillable. I’m all about eco-friendly products and this is something I would give to someone who is trying to contribute to saving the world. And besides, you can actually fill them with whatever you want – shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, and so on.


A toolbox among affordable Christmas Eve box fillers? Absolutely! People think toolboxes are expensive, and I’m here to prove you wrong. Of course, there are toolboxes that are expensive, but you can get the ones that fulfill your basic needs for quite a cheap price.

This pink, 39-piece toolset makes a great present for an independent woman who doesn’t need a man to repair and fix things. As I said, it contains the tools you need for most small repairs around your home.


Stainless steel straws are sustainable, reusable, and also reduce plastic pollution quite significantly. It’s a must-have present for people who prefer ethical presents.

This set of 4 stainless steel straws is seriously cheap, so it’s a nice eco-friendly present if you’re on a tight budget. It consists of two straight straws, two bent straws, and a scrub brush as well.

If you want to buy more straws, here’s an affordable set of 16 steel straws as well.


A funny food blanket certainly belongs among some really cool ideas. This burrito blanket is made from flannel. It’s another funny present to give to someone who appreciates a good joke. Or just really loves burritos.

You can always give people simple fleece blankets, but I feel like this food blanket would be a much more fun idea. Think about it—you can simply lie down inside this incredibly soft and warm blanket, roll yourself up, and literally become a burrito.


Yeah, I know, bath bombs as Christmas gifts. How original! But really, I don’t know anyone who has a bath and doesn’t like using bath bombs to make the experience more pleasant. It’s a good way to relax after a long and hard day.

This bath bomb set consists of 25 organic bath bombs. Yes, 25! And you’ll also get three bubble bath bars as a bonus. They are handmade, vegan, cruelty-free, and made of materials that are completely soluble in water, with no residual residue, and will not contaminate your bathtub.


A water bottle is one of those cheap but thoughtful ideas if you know someone who wants to drink more water and just needs that little push (aka a new water bottle).

I really like this water bottle that comes with straws. It also comes with four lids—a basic lid, a sports lid, a climbing hook lid, and a straw lid with two straws. It’s really high-quality and long-lasting. You can choose between four colors, so there’s something for everyone.
