Gift Guide: Under $50

How fun are these gift guides turning out to be?! I mean I can't be the only one finding gifts (or items for myself) that I didn't even know were the perfect gift til I saw them! Lets to a 'Budget & $50 list' today! Does your family set limits on what you can spend? Do you have a lot of friends and people to buy for? Do you just not have a wallet like Scrooge McDuck (you know Duck Tales, whooo-HO! & all those gold coins that you could swim in?!)

We me either, so here is a great listing that won't break the bank, but still shows you know who they are and that you were thinking about them! Don't forget about this or this or this...and many of the others all fit into this under $50 category too! Don't forget to mix and match to make the perfect holiday treat! 

Lets start with a personalized gift! Do you have a Aunt who always plays hostess to over night guests or have a cool family cabin in the mountains? or what about a newlywed couple. Toss on their new monogram - what a cool treat! I personally love these carafes! Perfect for the nightstand, or to have placed in a guest room when you have guests arriving late! (Thinking one of these would be great to have in the bedroom...no more mounting pile of glasses or water bottles - just one and it is hawt!)

We all know how great a fresh mani is, right?! I mean come-on bring on the polish! I think this gift set would make the perfect stocking stuffer, great gift for a college aged fashionista....shoot us 20-somethings want this just as bad!!! This are the perfect size to throw in your bag as you head out on vacation - mini size just for touch-ups! I am loving this!

Have another fashionista (or any age) on your list??? We all know how hot fur is right now and what better way to stay current without looking like you tried too hard?! I am adding this to my Santa list! (Plus with the hidden chain - throw it over your shoulder and you can dance the night away, then tuck it back away, never have to sacrifice for fashion!

What about the annual family 'Secret Santa' gift exchange???? I love those, es if your family is large. It is always funny when you see Uncle Harry end up with the lacy shawl! But how about a game? Bring the family together for some bonding....but lets be real, after a few cocktails this game would be a riot! (Family game nights rock, nothing like seeing your smart brother not know an answer you totally do!)

Just like the nail-polish gift pack I am thinking this gift pack is going to be another instant hit!!! {Santa do you here me?! ;) } With the varying shades of shimmer and pink, this would be a welcome addition to any lady on your list!

  2. I love this list. I think that little clutch is divine!
    Also, I totally recommned NARS lip glosses. Even though I have a slight addiction to lip gloss, NARS is my favorite brand.
