Affordable (Yes, Affordable!) Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on Updated on

When I see these holiday gift guides online, I am just like…what?! Gifts under $100? Gifts under $50? That’s fine and all, but I’m looking for something a little bit more budget friendly. So, I decided to make it my mission to find great gift options for under $25! I believe that’s manageable for most.

(Anyone can find handsoap and candles, so I did my best to keep those off the list)

My Piperlime Picks (I love this website for myself, and you’re supposed to give gifts that you would want for yourself, right?):

Kate Spade socks // Pim + Larkin necklace (get additional 50% off with code GIFT until 12/15)//Hive and Honey Gold Wheel Hoop Earrings //Tinley Road Faceted Stone Earrings

Anthropologie Affordability:

Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life // Polka Dot Potholders // Gilded Borders Jewelry Box

Spreading J.Crew Joy (additional 30% off most items using code: GIFTNOW through 12/24/13)

Pinch Provisions for J.Crew Emergency Kit // Glitter Notebook // Stamps and Ink Pad

My Forever 21 Finds:

Disco Earphones // Metallic Rhinestone Phone Case // Stress-Free Head Massager

And, these are just some random items I’ve come across that I thought would make fun gifts!!

Hex Amber Leather Earrings by The Grey Button // Donut Leggings (via @kristina_bor on Instagram), sold at JCPenney (not available online) // Kiss the Cook Apron H&M

Here are a few other options for great gift ideas:

C. Wonder, Francesca’s, Windsorstore and Lulu’s

There’s one thing I recommend NOT getting your friends: Anything Christmas-themed! I always wonder why I am receiving a Christmas platter or towels for Christmas when it’s too late to use them by then!

I hope your holiday giving is filled with ease. And I hope your holiday receiving will make you cheese (you, know…as in smile really big! I’m sorry, that’s the best I could do)!
