$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!

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.

Gift Guide for Her–$25 and under

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
