The month of December is when the stock market goes up due to people purchasing an abundance Christmas gifts. I love buying gifts for my family and friends but my shopping game can be too strong. There are times I don’t realize how much I spend after I put the bags down. Then I hear this voice that says, “Congrats now you’re poor. How are you going to buy Chipotle now?” This year, I decided to search for Christmas presents that are under $30 but were also the perfect present to give to love ones.
Anthropologie Golden Monogram Mug
Anthropologie released a limited edition monogram mug in gold. It’s like the black monogram mug but in gold (duh). I think these mugs are perfect for hot chocolate nights. This gorgeous mug is only $10.
Starbucks Advent Calendar
I went to get Starbucks with a friend and I found a Starbucks Advent Calendar. The dates are in reusable color tins that contains different types of treats and a surprise gift card. This is the perfect gift for Starbucks lovers; I got this for my coffee/ chocolate lover friend. This present is $29.95. I really liked this gift because my friend gets to open a gift every single day until Christmas.
LUSH has some of the most affordable Christmas presents. The best part is they are already pre-wrapped. LUSH has presents that are filled with bath bombs, shower gels, soaps and body butters. I think it just depends on the person’s favorite scent but here’s some Christmas pre-wrapped gifts under $30:
- Festive Friends ($29.95)
- Home for Christmas ($27.95)
- Golden Wonder ($19.95)
- Secret Santa ($19.95)
- Little Snow Fairy ($13.95)
If you know someone who loves to read and also loves Amy Poehler this is the present to get; Amy Poehler just wrote her first book called, Yes Please. This number one seller is only $14.50 on Amazon. I love Amy Poehler so this present is something that I would love to get (hint hint mother).
Benefit- The Real Steal
If you’ve read my blog posts in the past, I have talked about how much I love Benefit’s eyeliner. Recently, Benefit released a value set called The Real Steal. It has a sample size of the Benefit eyeliner AND a sample size of the benefit mascara. The value set’s name is true to its word; The Real Steal is $24. This is a steal!!! If you were to get the same eyeliner from the value set, but in a regular size, it costs $24. GO GET IT!!
One of my cousins had a baby shower and she received a Jellycat Giraffe. It is the softest stuffed animal I have ever felt. I was really tempted to take the giraffe home for myself… But I didn’t. I went online to see if they have any other animals and they do! This would be an amazing present for children and they cost around $20 at Nordstrom. I am pretty sure if you looked around, you can find a cheaper Jellycat animal.
December ending= a new year. Why not start your new year with a personalized calendar from Minted? You can personalize photo layouts, color options and add birthdays dates throughout the year. This calendar is 8″ x 11.5″ and is $29.
