Blanket scarves are a big trend this season, and this one is full of jewel tones that are great for the holidays! At this price, might as well buy one for everyone.

BrightEndeavors Candle, $12.99


Perfect for the white elephant or secret santa, these candles smell fantastic AND give back! I tried out the Pumpkin Chai candle and am in LOVE!! This is great for moms/aunts/grandmas who are sometimes hard to shop for.

Christmas sweatshirt, $9.99

Cute and comfy option for all those holiday parties coming up! Also, under $10!!!

Velvet Choker, $10.90


Velvet and chokers are both hot this winter, and I LOVE this combo of the two. Chances are, your friend/sister/relative will, too!

Selfie Remote, $20

For the selfie queen in your life, give the gift that no one else can: the perfect angle 😉


$50 & Under

Curology, $19.95 per month


Clear skin is always a necessary accessory! Curology personalizes acne treatment to every specific skin type to make sure it is the most effective. I’m lucky in that I rarely get breakouts, but with my personalized treatment, the zits that popped up after a night out went away within A DAY! A DAY, people!!!!

Vineyard Vines Hat, $20+

For the jet-setting girl, what more perfect a gift than a cute passport holder?!

Colourpop Berry Bundle, $24.50


Cheaper than Kylie with the same great feel! I love all these colors and it’s a great value for the price (read: your friends will think this cost way more than it did!)

J. Crew Statement Necklace, $34.50

You can never go wrong with a piece of jewelry from J. Crew. This little number will dress up any sweater and take a winter outfit from drab to fab!

Glitter Kate Spade iPhone Case, $49

Glitter is synonymous with the holidays, and I love the saying on this case so much that I got it for myself, and it now also comes in “Fizz, Pop, Clink!” Plus, so fun to play with since the glitter floats around!!! This is a gift for someone who’s a tad bit extra 😉

Kendra Scott earrings, $50

I love anything Kendra Scott, and these are such a cute stocking stuffer! Comes in a variety of colors as well.

$100 & Under

Betsey Johnson Coffee Bag, $68coffee mug purse

For the girl who always has a coffee in her hand- put one on her shoulder! (Ha, get it?) But really, I think this is absolutely adorable.

Kate Spade Sparkly Star Studs, $78

Dazzle in these stunner studs. I think these would be great for someone who’s hard to give to since they’re unique and they probably don’t have something similar!

Rebecca Minkoff Metallic Clutch, $95

WHAT A STEAL! Metallic clutch + cute dress = instant holiday glam. This baby comes in 4 metallic shades to best fit your girl’s taste.

Patagonia Vest, $99

Warm, cozy, fluffy, and somehow still adorable. If you don’t want to buy this for someone else, buy it for yourself because this is SUCH a great price for it!!
