We all have many, many gifts we need to buy during the holiday season, and sometimes I find the smaller gifts like lip gloss, makeup, pens and pencils, etc are often the most useful.
Buying someone a great present definitely doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money and while I can’t help you fight for a mall parking spot or wrap your gifts (I totally would too. I wrap a mean present), I can help you find some fun items!
Here are a few gift ideas that won’t break the bank, leaving you with plenty extra change for a non fat gingerbread latte or two. (Or three. No judgement.)
Such an adorable idea and it has a very whimsical Anthropologie feel without the Anthropologie price tag.
2. C.O. Bigelow Barber Body Lotion – $10.00
Can’t forget the guys! Give the guys in your life a nice little pampering gift.
You are never too old for colored pencils.
4. Trompe L’Oeil Pencil Case – $12.00
Even though this is labelled as a pencil case, it could just as easily be a cosmetics bag. Who doesn’t need a whimsical little bag as a catch all for their purse?
5. ThinkGeek Games of Thrones Coasters – $9.99
Okay, this ups the gift guide nerd factor by a lot. But I know a few people who would go nuts for these and I’m sure you would as well.
6. Home Classics Geometric Fleece Throw – $5.99
I am all about soft throws to cuddle on the couch with and I love geometric prints. West Elm has some great ones as well right now, but this one from Kohl’s is a fraction of the price. So, basically what I’m saying is, who wants to buy this for my couch?
7. Cost Plus One Gallon Glass Storage Jar – $13.99
A glass storage jar is an elegant kitchen home decor gift and would also work in a living room or bathroom. A simple and chic storage option.
8. Benefit Cosmetics Full Glam! Ahead – $12.00
I love little cosmetics sets that let you sample different products before purchasing their full sized versions. Plus, the packaging is always super cute.
