Today’s gift guide is full of items (mostly) under $50. This is my favorite gift guide to put together! I’ve been gathering ideas all year.
I included pairings for all of them so you can mix and match or choose one if you’re looking for a lower price point. I think of these ideas for friends, teachers, hostess gifts. Even stocking stuffers for yourself! Items I personally own and love are marked with an asterisk.
2020 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts Under $50
ONE // Anthropologie Latte Bowls* ($30) + Ice Cream Subscription (might I suggest Jeni’s) ($61): I received the latte bowls for Christmas several years ago. They’ve made it through two moves and are our go to bowls for everything from ice cream to cereal. Add a delivery of ice cream and it’s guaranteed to be a hit.
TWO // Billie Subscription* ($27) + L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil* ($25): Okay, gifting a razor subscription is sort of random, but hear me out. I’ve been using the Billie razor for two years. I would always forget to buy replacements. Now I don’t have to worry about it. Each month a supply arrives in my mailbox. It’s really easy to skip if you need to. The subscription makes my life easier. As for the shower oil, it is truly a little luxury, especially in the winter. They now sell refill packs too!
THREE // Vogue Jigsaw Puzzle ($18) + Bottle of Wine + Bulletproof Activated Coconut Charcoal* ($18): With this trio, I picture a night spent drinking a bottle of wine while putting together a cool puzzle. Before bed, take an activated charcoal pill to prevent any headache the next day. My friend swore by the pills and now that I’ve used them I can confirm they definitely help!
FOUR // French Press + Coffee Beans: Admittedly, I don’t drink coffee, but I know a lot of people do! (If tea is more your thing, I’ve got you covered with #8.) My parents swear by making coffee in a French press and this one gets the best reviews. A friend started Cafe Corazon in Costa Rica based on the principle of sustainability, clean watersheds and wildlife conservation. My brother has tried their medium roast coffee beans and given them a big 👍🏼. You can order a bag or start a subscription (a 3-month subscription is $45)
FIVE // Silipat Baking Mat* ($28) + The Defined Dish* ($18) + Weekly Meal Planning Notepad* ($11): For the friend that’s determined to meal plan in 2021, I suggest my go to cookbook, a meal planning notepad and a mat to make those sheet pan dinners.
SIX // Hudson & Bleeker Travel Cosmetic Case* ($39) + Kosas Lip Oil in Jellyfish ($27): I searched over a year for a clear cosmetic case to hold my liquids when traveling and finally found the perfect one from Hudson & Bleeker. It fits a travel size shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, hair spray, lotion, body wash, and a few other items. It’s been a big upgrade from the plastic ziplock bag I had been using! Add the Kosas lip oil for a fun treat. I own it in a bright pink, but the jellyfish shade is much more subtle and looks good on anyone.
SEVEN // Fight Evil, Read Books Tee ($30) + The Happy Ever After Playlist* ($14): For the book lover in your life, this super soft tee shirt and one of my favorite books of 2020. The tee goes as well with jeans or joggers as it does under a blazer or cardigan.
EIGHT // Harney & Sons Tea + Pitcher* ($20): I am a broken record when it comes to Harney & Sons tea. It’s not an exaggeration to say it’s been the highlight of many days over the last several months. My favorite iced tea flavors are peach black, vanilla black, and green coconut. For the cooler months, I’m going to order the peppermint and holiday teas. Grab a few different flavors, pair it with an iced tea pitcher (and maybe a mug for hot tea), and you’ve got a perfect gift for any tea lover.
NINE // Brightland Olive Oil* ($37) + Spout* ($9) + Local Homemade Bread (Moxie): If theres anyone on your list that loves high quality foods, Brightland olive oil is a great option. I’d add a really pretty spout and a loaf of homemade bread from a local bakery. I use my “special olive oil” for salads, avocado toast and with tomatoes.
TEN // Sara Fitz Notepad ($13) + Pens ($10) + Brittany Fuson Coloring Book ($14) + Markers ($15): If you have a friend that loves to make lists (🙋♀️), all of the notepads from Sara Fitz are adorable. Coloring is one of my favorite activities to do with Lawson and Sybil. It’s relaxing and calming. Of course, I am drawn to a fashion inspired coloring book!
ELEVEN // Remodelista: The Organized Home* ($25) + Stasher Bags* ($40): For the minimalist, or want to be minimalist, a book about organizing your home and a set of reusable silicone bags. Stasher bags are in the running for one of my top products of 2020.
TWELVE // Beautycounter Hand Cream* ($30) + Olive & June Cuticle Oil* ($16): I received the Beautycounter hand cream as a gift from my Mom last year. I keep it next to our kitchen sink and it saved my dry hands, especially during the winter months. As for the cuticle oil, I don’t use it every day, but when I do it’s such a treat and makes a big difference. : Who doesn’t like a luxe hand cream in the winter months? My mom gave me this last year and I kept it next to my kitchen sink. It saved my dry hands in the winter. I keep the cuticle oil in my tote. I don’t remember to use it every day but when I do it’s such a treat.
THIRTEEN // Erin Gates Elements of Style* ($25) + Sunday Candle Co. El Sol candle* ($26): Two of my favorites, this interior design coffee table book is actually worth reading. I’ve relied on it a lot since we’ve been doing more home projects the last six months. I came across Sunday Candle Co. on Instagram last year. I’ve now ordered 6 candles. They are all great, but my very favorite is el sol (although spiced pumpkin isn’t far behind).
FOURTEEN // Aesop Rinse-Free Hand Wash ($10) + Lele Sadoughi Face Covering* ($40 for set of 3): If this gift doesn’t signify 2020, I don’t know what does. The best hand sanitizer along with my favorite “stylish” face coverings. I use both of these every time we leave the house.
FIFTEEN // Susan Gordon Ring Dish ($25) + slip Silk Scrunchie* ($30): This ring dish is so pretty. It would look great on a nightstand or next to the bathroom or kitchen sink. I’ve raved about these scrunchies for months. They don’t leave a crease and keep my hair curled longer. raved about the silk scrunchies for months. They don’t leave a crease and extend my hair when I actually take the time to curl it.
