Happy almost Friday ya’ll! I thought I would take a little break from the diet and workout updates to talk a little about gift giving. I really do LOVE giving gifts. However, that does not always mean that I have as much $$$$ on hand to spend as I would like. Luckily, what you spend is not nearly as important as the sentiment behind your gift. For example a truly special and thoughtful $10.00 gift trumps a random $50.00 gift card any day in my book. One of my most viewed blogs was a 5 under 25 segment from a couple Christmases back. Soooooo, since I aim to please here are 5 fun and cool gifts for the gals in your life that won’t break the bank. Happy Shopping!
For the Traveler/Commuter/Coffee Lover
I have to have my morning cup of coffee (or two) and sometimes that means taking it “to go”. A durable yet stylish travel mug is a must. Plus for the fashion savvy coffee drinkers in your life- Kate Spade = Style. If you catch it on sale then toss in a gift card from Starbucks or local coffee house too! PS- I have this mug and its awesome!
For the Homebody
Tall Knitted Slipper Boot $14.97 available at Walmart
Give the gift of warm and fuzzy. There are tons of knitted “bootie” slippers out there but I love the soft cream tones of this pair. Pair them with leggings at the cabin, jammies on Christmas morning, or whenever your toes need some snuggling. Since these clock in at $15.00 I would suggest pairing them with a favorite “blast from the past” movie from the sale bin OR a small bottle of soothing shea foot lotion.
For the All Natural Girl
Glass Dharma Straws (starting at) $6.00- Available at Glass Dharma
Not only are these straws quite eye catching but, as the name notes, they are glass. That means no waste, no using plastic, and no more giving up using a straw in those spinach smoothies. My absolute favorites are from the decorative dots collection above. I would actually really love this gift myself and think its a lovely thoughtful gesture for those looking to live a more natural lifestyle.
For the Golden Girl
Hear No Evil Gold Earbuds $20.00- Available at Nasty Gal
Either we know her or we are her (*cough cough*) the girl who loves all things gold and glittery. There are actually tons of gold ear buds out there (check out amazon for options as inexpensive as $6.00). These will match her gold phone and sparkling personality perfectly! If you go with a less expensive pair include a favorite blast from the past album or I-tunes gift card to round it out.
For the Foodie
Graze Box Gift Box or Paid Subscription- Available at Graze Box
This is one of my favorite under $20.00 ideas. For around $19.00 you can prepay for 3 months (1 box per month) of goodies as a gift. Graze boxes consist of 4 healthy natural snacks based on your preferences. If the subscription route is not your thing you can always just schedule a gift box be sent. PS: If any of you want to try graze box for free here is an invite code for you: SARAV7Z9P . (I actually *just* sent for my first box today and I am really jazzed to try it.)**
