GIFT GUIDE: Under $50

It’s Wednesday and although the stomach bug interrupted the beginning of our week around here, I’m determined to get things back on track in order to finish out this week on a much better note! Today I’ve got a fun little under $50 gift guide to share with you all. Friends, family members, hosts, significant others…you should be able to find something on here for just about everyone.


Flannel: A great flannel is widely accepted and this one comes at a great price and in a number of color combos.

Water Bottle: Last year I made the resolution to drink more water. Half my body weight in ounces was my daily goal and although I didn’t hit that everyday I came much closer than ever before. The only reason was because I always kept (and continue to keep) a water bottle by my side. Maybe this would be a great goal for you and a friend. Plus, a cute bottle never hurt anyone.

Faux Fur: Any girlfriend of mine would love a little faux fur. Especially something simple like this that would add a little punch to any holiday outfit.

Lipstick: I get asked most about my lip color the most when I’m wearing this Stila lipstick. Not only do they have great color options, but the stuff really stays on. And since reapplication is not my jam, this stuff is my best friend. This set would make a great gift on it’s own or could be broken up to add to other gifts.

Cutting Board: A fun and festive gift that could be perfect for anyone that may be hosting you this year.

Earrings: I share these time and again. I love them because the shape is so flattering on everyone and they come in just about any color option. The gold is especially festive.

Cozy Minimalist Home: I’ve recently started following The Nester and love her and her motto that ‘it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful’. This is a book I’d love to get my hands on. Check her out on Instagram for a great follow.

Homebody tee: Does this tee speak to anyone else?! Not only do I love this tee, but I love the whole Proper Tee line by Chris Loves Julia. How cute is the MistleToe tee?

Travel Jewelry Box: What a perfect gift for the friend that does a lot of traveling. Makes a great stocking stuffer too.

Hat: Cold weather accessories are always practical this time of year, especially when they are classic and cute!

Slipper: I love these classy slippers in the form of a loafer. They also come in a blush pink if that’s more her thing.

French Press: For the coffee lover. This gift changed my coffee life last year. I don’t use it everyday, but we break it out a few times a week to enjoy a better/tastier cup of coffee.
