three gift guides // under $100, under $50, under $25

December first has arrived, y’all! I don’t know about you, but it officially feels like the Christmas season now. I even woke up to 40° weather here in Florida! Before you know it, the big day will be upon us.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that I enjoy the Christmas season so much more when I get all of my gifts taken care of and ordered straight away. There’s nothing more stressful than the last-minute gift hunt, is there?

Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers for just about every scenario, but especially when it comes to gift-giving. Their free shipping, free returns, expansive selection, and amazing customer service make them the obvious, hassle-free choice for the season.

I’m thrilled to be partnering with them today to share some gift guide inspiration for you across all price points! Whether you’re looking for budget-friendly stocking stuffers for your best friend, or something perfect for the guy in your life, you can find it all at Nordstrom.

I spent a lot of time putting these gift guides together, and I hope you enjoy! You’ll find gift guides for $100 and under, $50 and under, and $25 and under below. Happy shopping!

Please note, at the time of creation, certain items were on sale. If shopping this post after December 1, some items may have gone back to full price.

So many fabulous ideas, right?! I don’t know about you, but I’m not dying for the make-your-own microwave popcorn bowl! How cool that you don’t even need any oil… and it’s just $20!

I also have to point out my number one recommended gift, this Chanel lip gloss in the shade “Merry Rose.” It’s been my favorite for years now because of it’s perfect, neutral color (looks amazing on everyone) and non-sticky, luscious gloss. It’s under $50, but packs a huge punch because who doesn’t love receiving Chanel?!

Let me know if anything else caught your eye!

Love from the Sunshine State,
