If you're looking for a quick and easy present ahead of Christmas, Squishmallows are a great shout. Besides being pretty affordable on the whole, they're also the latest 'in' thing after having taken over TikTok and earning big-name fans like Lady Gaga. 

To help you cross another gift off the list, we've got the rundown of where you can find the most popular Squishmallows for less. In fact, the vast majority of the following offers should arrive just in time for Christmas if you act fast. That includes licensed options (like Disney Squishmallows such as Abu from Aladdin or a particularly cute one from Hello Kitty) along with original plushies ranging from animals to desert. Just make sure you hit checkout sooner than later.

Oh, and don't worry about these plushies not being legit either. We've done our best to make sure that no bootleg Squishmallows are included within this roundup. (It's always worth keeping an eye on user reviews to get a better lay of the land, especially for sites like Walmart - we've seen more than a few rip-offs masquerading as actual Squishmallow products.)

Squishmallows Violet the Octopus (8") | $44.99 $17.77 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
