Christmas is coming! If you’re anything like me, the thought of Christmas shopping stresses you out. For me, that’s mostly because I don’t have a whole lot of extra cash to spend on gifts for my loved ones.
If you’re in the same boat, have no fear! I’ve created a simple, budget-friendly gift guide from which you’re sure to find a holiday gift for every special lady in your life.
1. The Caffeine Queen
The gift is for the woman who loves her coffee! Pick up a cute travel mug and a pack of her favorite K-Cups or a pound of her favorite roast. Tip: Starbucks always has cute mugs during the holiday season! (Mug, $19.95; K-Cups, $10.99)
2. The Letter Lover
If you have a friend who loves to write hand-written notes, create a stationary gift bundle! Find some cute note cards, like these Snail Mail ones from Kate Spade (I love these!). Then, pair them with a fancy pen that she can use for all of her writing. This will make for a letter lover’s dream! (Card Set, $25; Pen, $36)
3. The Writer
This is a gift that I recently bought for one of my best friends who loves to write. She is one of the most positive and grateful people I’ve ever met, so I thought of her as soon as I saw this. This journal is full of daily writing prompts that center around the theme of gratefulness. It’s perfect for the friend in your life who loves to write! (Daily Gratitude Journal, $9.99)
4. The Planner
If you have a friend who is in school, who blogs, or who is a girl boss, think about gifting her an awesome planner! I recently purchased my 2016 planner from Sugar Paper Planner for Target (I’ll do a review in January!). Most planner lines have different layouts, such as horizontal, vertical, or hourly, so you’re sure to find one that works best for her. Throw in some decorative washi tape, and you’re good to go! (Planner, $9.99; Washi Set, $4.95)
5. The Hostess
Who doesn’t love a good scented candle? A lady who loves to host might surely love to burn a nice scent, but this gift is honestly perfect for just about anyone! Candles add a comforting warmth to a home. Bath and Body Works has a great selection of candles, but don’t buy them until they’re on sale (they’re usually on sale for 2 for $25). (Candles, $22.50 ea.)
6. The Pamperer
Whether she lives a hectic life, or just loves to pamper herself, this Stress Relief gift set from Bath and Body Works is the perfect gift for your busy friend. With a candle, body lotion, hand wash, and shower gel, your friend is sure feel pampered at all moments of the day. The Eucalyptis and Spearmint scent of this kit is seriously relaxing, but I’d also recommend B&BW’s Sleep kit, too, which smells like lavender and vanilla (aka heavenly). (Stress Relief Kit, $38)
There you have it: a gift for every woman in your life! I hope this helped you find some budget-friendly gifts this holiday season.
