2020 Holiday Gift Guide (All under $200!)
This year taught us a lot, and reminded us of what’s really important in life. One of my main takeaways this year was finding beauty in simplicity + remembering to be grateful for the smallest of things. Some of these things include the air in my lungs, sunshine, food + water, hot showers ~ I’m talking the simplest of things, guys. It’s been a profound mindshift that has really strengthened my mental health + led me to more clarity + happiness, overall. While finding joy in the small stuff is a great way to live (and I strongly encourage everyone to live this way!) it’s still exciting to get festive this time of year + start thinking about fun gift ideas for your loved ones. Real talk: I know this year a lot of our bank accounts were on the struggle bus, so I made sure to keep these all under $200 or so. I also have exclusive codes for a few of these items, so make sure you peep at the list below to get your discount!
Happy Holidays + Happy Shopping!
FOR YOUR BFF
Everyone needs a phone stand to pop onto the back of their iphone, and this Boho Rattan one by Hirsch + Timber is my latest obsession (thanks, Crystal!) They also have a ton of other cute accessories, like rattan earrings, phone cases + more. Another little something that every girl needs + uses daily? Cute panties, of course! Bootay Bag is a super cute + affordable underwear subscription service that sends a few new panties to your doorstep each month. Starting at $10/month, you can’t go wrong with this cute + fun subscription gift. You can gift her two pairs of panties for three months for just $39. Moving right along on the booty theme (LOL) I SWEAR by this booty scrub by Anese. I have seen a noticeable difference in my derriere by using this stuff every other day or so. While we’re on shower stuff, Spongelle has THE cutest bath + body products, and great gift sets that are packaged perfectly.
If you have a little more to spend, I’m obsessed with these High Top "Superstar Up" Adidas, and actually just got a pair for my birthday (thanks other Crystal, hehe!). Of course, everyone knows my all-time favorite perfume is Le Labo’s Santal 33 so although a little pricey, I had to include it on here.
FOR YOUR BOO
This backpack by Nomatic is every guy on the go’s dreammmm. I bought this for an ex + he absolutely loved it. This bag literally has so many different compartments + pockets, it’s perfect for your guy + everywhere he needs to go. Speaking of on the go, this collapsible to-go tumbler by Stojo is a must-have. I personally like the black or white, but it comes in nine different colors!
I gotta admit ~ I’m a sucker for a guy in a hoodie, and comfy PJ’s or loungewear is a close second. I’m loving these sweatpants from Outdoor Voices ~ perfect for a Netflix+ chill night in or a morning walk to brunch. Pair these with some Moccasins + you’ve helped your guy perfect the perfect comfy meets cool outfit. This bamboo charger deck is all kinds of cool, and will look great on his desk or bedside table, whether he’s a modern guy or more boho. Last but not least, the most classic gift for your man ~ a watch! I’m in love with anything Nixon makes, but I’m especially loving this gold band with green face this season.
FOR YOUR MAMA
You can never go wrong with a good fragrance, and I’ve been wanting a bottle of Viktor Rolf’s Flowerbomb Perfume ever since I tried it in store a few months ago. It’s fresh + flower-y, and a perfect everyday feminine scent. Tea is always a pleasant gift, and Tea Drops not only has the cutest packaging that your mom will just adore, but some really cool gift boxes including an iced matcha kit + even bubble tea (say whaaaat!?) I love this brand because it’s female (and minority!) owned + their little tea drops in cute shapes like flowers + hearts make drinking tea that much easier + mess-free. A cute stocking stuffer for mom is this yummy ginger sugar overnight lip scrub by Aritaum ~ available on Amazon Prime, we love that.
If your mama isn’t into pampas grass, now is the time sister. You know I’m absolutely obsessed with the stuff so I could not NOT go without adding this in. This larger than life pampas by Pampas Mama is so beautiful, and will get anyone on a pampas kick, quick. Add in one of my all-time favorite candles, a Pomegranate Orange Voluspa Candle, and you have a sweet gift that she will enjoy thoroughly during this time at home. Fuzzy slippers are the perfect gift for mom, and these from Target are just the cutest.
FOR THE BRIDE-TO-BE
Brides-to-be have a lot on their plates, so she’s going to love this CBD oil by Beam to chill out ~ it’s seriously the bomb. I also love their dream capsules. Pair this with some incense, and you’ll have her prepared for a zen night in to take a breather from wedding planning. All the decisions that go into planning a big day like a wedding, not to mention all of the emotions that go into the process of putting together the big production, so it’s definitely a time for your bride-to-be to get her mind right + stay focused on her mental health. You can give her the priceless gift of virtual therapy via the app Bloom + help her become the best version of herself for the most important day of her life. One of my favorite bloggers, In The Frow, recently partnered with Edge of Ember + created a stunning line of mixed metal pieces. I’m obsessed with the ear cuff, but there are so many other pieces that the bride-to-be in your life can wear for her wedding festivities, whether it be her engagement party, welcome dinner, or the wedding day itself.
ANOTHER EDGE OF EMBER X IN THE FROW FAVORITE: THE GOLD ZODIAC NECKLACE
Last but not least, a cookbook is a great gift idea for many reasons. Not only can it get excited to become a wifey very soon, but cooking is yet another way she can relax + wind down after a long week of thinking about wedding plans.
Some of my fave cookbooks right now:
Do What Feels Good by Hannah Bronfman
Cravings by Chrissy Teigen
Hungry for More by Chrissy Teigen
Eat Clean Play Dirty by Danielle Duboise + Whitney Tingle
