$50 and Under for Her Gift Guide

50-and-under-for-her-gift-guide

I honestly cannot believe Christmas is this week!

I’ve yet to wrap my gifts and I need to figure out what I’m going to wear for Midnight Mass and for the big day. In actuality, I just have been putting off a-lot of Christmas related things as it had not felt like that time of the year down here until this past weekend (yay for cooler temps!).

Here’s to the most wonderful and stressful time of the year!

$25 and Under Gift Guide for Her

2016-gift-guide-25-and-under-for-her

 

As much as we all love the holiday season, it can honestly be a really be a stressful time, especially when you are shopping for others. Don’t worry y’all, no matter if they’re a a music lover, planner, bibliophile, beauty junkie, cat lover, or a wannabe chef, you’ll find something for everyone who is on your list.

And for those who are struggling to find that perfect gift, I have cultivated a few lists of some of my personal favorites (starting with this one) to help you out. I personally love to go with more quirky gifts, hence the cat coloring book for the cat lover in your life (seriously though…they probably have enough stuffed cats as it is) or a sassy mug for the bibliophile.

Just remember that they’ll be happy just with knowing you thought of them this holiday season.

Happy holiday shopping y’all!

With a larger budget, it honestly feels way easier to spend more frivolously or to splurge on specific materials and brands. I love the shape of the Topshop Girlfriend Blazer and the beaded peony clutch found at Anthropologie is so unique. When it comes to gifts like those, quality and rarity of a print matter.

Another splurge are PJ Salvage pajamas. They’re a little more pricy than the pajamas you’d find at Target, but I love their prints and they last forever (I’ve had my pair for coming on 10 years now).

Gifts like these really focus on quality over quantity–which I’ve always been for.

When it comes to gift giving, I generally am pretty practical. If I know someone who has limited amount of winter clothes, I’ll give them gloves or a beanie or a nice scarf. Or if I have a friend who’s either a beauty or music junkie, I know the latest album or palette will be used/listened to repeatedly.

I always figured it’s best to give someone a gift that you know they’ll actually use versus something they just want.

2015 Gift Guide for Her--25 and under

 

There are officially four Wednesdays before Christmas day, so instead of posting a “Wednesday Want” I’ll be posting gift guides. The gift guides will be divided by price range, as I know budgeting for the holidays is something many of us keep in mind.

This one, like many of the others, includes items that I am currently coveting. I mean, who wouldn’t want to get on the fringe trend train for a cheap fare? Also, I just adore the book covers for the Jane Austen classic novels at Anthropologie.

I hope each and every one of these helps you in your search for the perfect gift.

Best, 

C
