’tis the season // under $50 gift guide for her

There’s something so fun and festive about publishing my first gift guide of the season. As I sit here sipping coffee with cheesy Christmas movies on in the background, the reality that Christmas is just a few weeks away is finally setting in. Jingle jingle, friends!

Today, I’m excited to share my 2019 under $50 gift guide for her! (You can find gift guides from years past here.) I’ve spent a ton of time including products I personally love, as well as researching gifts that pack a punch without a hefty price tag!

There are so many great ideas below, and I hope they make Christmas shopping fun for you instead of a chore!

Unlike most of my collages, this roundup isn’t click-able. But I have all the details linked at the end of the post… so keep scrolling for details!

one // my favorite lip. ever.


This Chanel stain + gloss in the shade Merry Rose has been my wear-every-day, ride-or-die for two years now. I recommend it to everyone, and continually get questions about it. This shade, Merry Rose, is the perfect, chic, subtle nude that looks good on everyone.

$29 + $49

This precious little catch-all has it… you guessed it.. all! Adorable color options, on-trend greek key detailing and, of course, a monogram! The small size runs for $29 and the large runs for $49.

Another blogger-favorite… this ice roller! Store this in the freezer and use to brighten and de-puff under eyes or to massage in essential oils and facial products. Perfect for the beauty guru!

I’m a big fan of the slip brand (Andrew got me a pillowcase for Valentine’s day one year!) and have been hearing rave reviews about these hair ties. Apparently they don’t tug or leave creases. Plus, they’re nothing short of luxurious!
