As Christmas morning quickly approaches, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite gift ideas! For him, for her, and whether you’re on a budget or not, these are sure to put a smile on their face! Just so that this list doesn’t turn into my ‘favorite last-minute gift ideas’, try and pick a few of these up this weekend! Only fourteen more sleeps!
GIFTS FOR HER UNDER $20
Nail polish and perfume sets are sure to make her chuckle because you’ve been paying attention to what she likes, why YES, she DID get a new haircut, go YOU! Blanket scarves are all the rage, keep her cozy and in style! The infinity necklace is like your love, infinite and cheesy!
GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $20
This bonsai tree will be like your love fern; if he can keep it alive then he’ll be great with the future babies you have together right? Right! Make him fall in love with you all over again with this ultra cool drink koozie! Love says, “I’ll bring you a beer AND make sure it’s nice and chill, like me, because I’m a COOL girlfriend”. Pun intended. Also, his sock game can be on POINT now, just slip these into his stocking. The other socks he owns are probably holey or missing its pair anyway!
GIFTS FOR HER UNDER $50
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than an engraved bracelet, and this has the bow to go with it! Kate Spade you just get us. Eyeshadow and makeup palettes are always a good gift! We love the many options because lets face it- we change our makeup look like we change our outfits … ok maybe wrong analogy. If she loves to write, doodle, or sketch out her first name paired with your last name … she’ll love this sophisticated and sleek stationary set! Do it!!!
GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $50
The fastest way to a man’s heart … is through his belly! Not a beer belly per say, BUT this makes a wonderful gift set! It’ll make him kiss you faster than he can make the beer! If he’s all about that Axe body spray life (ahem Joe!) and you want to ease him into a sexy man scent, try gifting him with a cologne that you LOVE! He’ll love it too and he’ll appreciate the extra sniffs and nuzzles from you! Flannels are just as sexy as they are fashionable in my opinion, and nothing screams, “I’m a sexy AND strong lumberjack”, quite like a flannel does! Or a man bun. And a burly beard.
GIFTS FOR HER UNDER $100
Team building skills are best created through adventures and activities! Make some memories and find some incredible things for the two of you to do on sites like Living Social and Groupon! Double that with a polaroid camera to capture all the moments because you KNOW how much she likes taking photos of YOUR food! Besides, nothing makes a better Instagram photo than a collage of polaroids! Speaking of collages, you can one-up that gift by creating beautiful frames and art work with those photos by using services like Shutterfly and other photo making programs! Look at you, you’re a gifting PRO! PS she totally needs this getaway bag to go with, because truth!
GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $100Men love taking selfies with us and FOR us, just about as much as they like talking about how AWESOME our love fern/bonsai gift was! Why not at least let him capture the moments HE loves, in style! Gift him with a rad camera … and be the 1st photo he takes with it! See, win win! Accessories really polish a man’s look off with just the right amount of taste and class. I think he’ll absolutely LOVE this watch with its man band and all! Last but not least, for the gamer inside of every man, be the coolest girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/ husband ever by surprising him with a new game or accessory! It shows that you semi-approve of all the time he spends gaming, AND that you’re actually listening to him talk about the game through all of those eye rolls of yours!
I hope this quick gift guide helps you in picking up a gift or FIVE the next time you’re out scrambling with the rest of us, in a frenzy at the mall the night before Christmas!
Happy holidays from me to you and let me know what your go-to gift is for that special lady or fella in your life!
