Holiday Gift Guide: 50 Dollars & Under!

Monday, December 16, 2013



Welcome to my second instalment in my holiday gift guide! A 50 dollar budget is much more manageable in finding an awesome gift. You can opt for jewelry, cozy knits or fun home accessories. When looking for presents within this budget, I try to opt for larger items like home accessories, and (attempt to) stay away from the "kitschy" stuff (ie. bath products, candy, trinkets). I try to find key pieces that are quality, instead of spending it on multiple tiny, cheaper things. 

  1. "hit snooze" Pillow $39.50, Victoria's Secret PINK - body pillows are great for student living and this one would be a fun accessory in any girl's bedroom! 
  2. Jewelled Penguin Earrings $25, Juicy Couture - These are super adorable and make an amazing gift for a BFF! I love that they are jewelled but definitely not over-the-top
  3. Fleece Hudson's Bay Blanket $40, The Bay - The real version of this blanket will rack you up thousands of dollars, but this is a great, much less expensive option and looks great as a throw on any bed! 
  4. Infiniti Curling Wand $35 - I love my curling wand, and Wal-mart has great options at a variety of prices. Curling wands make perfect curls and beachy waves.
  5. TNA Brunswick Scarf $50, Aritzia - A pretty knit scarf makes an excellent gift for anyone during the holiday season. I went through a small obsession with oatmeal - it's a sweet colour to wear during the wintertime but is still a great transition piece once the weather gets warmer. Aritzia has tons of scarves to choose from! 
  6. Viva La Juicy Rollerball $30, Sephora - Viva la Juicy is my favourite scent of all time. Perfumes are quite personal, so once scent might not be the holy grail for all, so a luxe rollerball is a great way to try out different perfumes without committing to an entire bottle, and make awesome stocking stuffers as well. 
  7. Owl Teapot $26, Indigo - Cute kitchen and dining accessories not only are practical, but can also double as home decor! This owl tea pot is an amazing gift for any tea-lover out there, but would also look fabulous perched onto a bookshelf or in a kitchen cabinet display. 

Hope you guys enjoyed my second part of the Holiday Gift Guide Series! 

Love Always, Rachel
