Here we go again. Gotta hand it to consumerism for making us buy all of our holiday gifts before December 1st.
Cyber Monday is officially in full swing, and in the spirit of budget-friendly finds, I'm rounding up my favorite under-50 gift picks with 6 gift guides for ya today!
See my ideas for The Trendsetter (I own half of these items), The Beauty Guru, The Guys (all Joe approved), The Homebody, The Hostess & Your Coworkers.
Simply click on any of the items in the collages below to shop!
And ICYMI, you can find my Cyber Week Master List here, with a huge round-up of gift picks from 20+ of my favorite retailers.
For the style lovers in my life, I like to focus on on-trend basics that they're bound to get use out of this season. Can't believe the price on these cognac pointed-toe boots; Purchased this scarf for myself and I haven't stopped wearing it..the colors are perfect; If you're looking for a more personalized gift, try Kendra Scott's Charms Collections (read more in this post). Love the bright eye charm.
With someone who's into beauty, it can be hard to know where to start, especially if they're always trying out the latest and greatest. A few of my personal favorites that won't go to waste: Tarte's Shape Your Money Maker Palette, complete with all the perfect golden neutrals; BeautyBio Bright Eyes cooling + deputing eye gels (comes with 5); Dr. Jart+ Sheet Masks (this is my favorite masking brand) and at $12, you can mix and match a few!
Buying for the men in my life is sometimes tricky, because it seems like they have everything. The guide below is all things I have bought in the past or am buying for Joe this year. He loves Herschel Supply Co. (I've got him drop kits, luggage, wallets, you name it). Got him this backpack last year for work and travel, and he takes it everywhere; Joe swears Dr. Jart+ Hydro Gel is god's gift for dry skin. His quote exactly, "It's like putting water directly into your pores. It's magical."; Bought this Old Navy layering jacket for Joe + my brother this year; Literally shook at the price of these Levi's sneaks.
Comfy cozy gifts for your friend who likes to never leave the house in the Winter? I got you covered. First up is this AE Cloudspun sweater which I've 'gifted' to myself and plan to gift to pretty much every woman in my family because it's that good. Candles are also a great neutral gift if you're really at a loss..but you need the right scent! Capri Blue's Volcano is one of the most widely-loved ones out there and smells absolutely delicious. The Roku is also a fun gift (and one we use in our house all the time). Plug it into your HDMI and have immediate access to Hulu, Netflix and all that is good in the world.
I love buying gifts for the home and could have a total field day at Anthropologie. You can never go wrong with a one-of-a-kind serving dish for the woman who loves to entertain, or a fun set of wine charms. Speaking of wine, this electric wine opener is a life-saver.
So the first question is...how much do you really like your coworkers? If you're doing an under $20 grab bag, you can't go wrong with something cozy like this AE color block scarf. Want to get a little more personal? You can do a monogrammed mug with this necklace inside (whole gift under $30). If all else fails and you need something foolproof, Sugarfina's bento boxes are the perfect under-30 option (because everyone likes candy, duh).
