It’s that time of year again. Who’s ready for the first gift guide of the season? Christmas is just a month away and we’re all trying to figure out what to get our loved ones. This year I’m going to be publishing multiple gift guides so hopefully, you’ll be able to find something perfect on my blog!
This year has been rough and I know there are people who are struggling financially so I decided to make an affordable gift guide for those who don’t have a lot to spend this year but still want to get something for everyone on their list. While looking for the perfect items, I made sure each one had great reviews. Also, Amazon is the perfect “one-stop” shop if you’re trying to get your shopping done quickly and effortlessly.
Let’s shop for…
The One Who’s All About Self-Care
We all know someone who is adamant about having a self-care day. You know, face masks, affirmations, and a good bubble bath. I’ll admit that I’m totally one of these people so trust me when I say that these are awesome self-care gifts!
Sheet Face Masks
First up are these sheet face masks that come in a pack of 12 for only $9.99! Sheet masks are so relaxing and perfect for a self-care day. These all contain collagen but each one is targeted specifically for a different skin issue. For example, there are ones for hydration, brightening, and even purifying!
If you have a bath lover on your list, they need these bath bombs in their life! There are so many places that sell expensive bath bombs so finding ones that are of excellent quality at an affordable price is so worth it. These bath bombs are all made of dead sea salt, shea butter, cocoa butter, and various essential oils.
A Guided Journal
Do you know somebody who loves to journal or maybe loves the idea but would rather have prompts to go off of? This awesome guided journal has lots of fun prompts and activities that help you focus on the positive things in life. Journaling is a great way to relax and is perfect for a self-care routine.
These cards are for that person who lives by positive affirmations. Positive affirmations are helpful to improve moods and bring motivation to every day.
I love these because they’re not overly serious or corny. There’s a touch of humor in each card which keeps it interesting!
Coloring Book to Destress
Coloring is a great stress-relieving activity in general but this “maybe swearing will help” book is the most calming way to get any frustration out on a bad day. With a mixture of motivation, puns, and curse words, what’s not to love? I own one of these and I personally think every adult should own one!
The One Who’s Always In The Kitchen
When you think of someone who absolutely loves baking and spending time perfecting new recipes, who comes to mind? I’m sure that whoever it is will love these kitchen items!
Pro Food Chopper
When it comes to cooking, I think a lot of people dread the whole chopping process. Well, the pro food chopper is coming to the rescue with two dicer blades, a spiral blade, and a ribbon blade. I would definitely look forward to making veggies with this thing!
Indoor Herb Garden
You don’t need to be a plant expert to have an indoor herb garden! I personally have a few herbs growing in my small apartment so trust me when I say it’s easy and possible. Being able to harvest your own fresh basil, cilantro, parsley, sage, and thyme is a cooks dream. This kit has everything you need for an awesome indoor herb garden.
HotPop Popcorn Maker
Making popcorn has never been easier with this popcorn maker! I’ve been using a loud electric popcorn maker for years and I’ve always hated how much space it takes up, how long it takes, and how loud it is. This popcorn maker collapses which is great for space and it takes minutes in the microwave! Not to mention it’s a much healthier option to the greasy prepackaged microwave popcorn!
Funny Kitchen Towels
Cute and funny kitchen towels are a must for some people. Especially me. They add personality to the kitchen and even sometimes sparks up a conversation if you have guests over. It’s really the little things that make people happy.
The One Who Loves All Things Cozy
I don’t know about you but I would never say no to a new blanket or fuzzy socks. From somebody who is obsessed with cozy items, I found the perfect gifts for the lover of all things cozy.
I don’t know anybody who wouldn’t love a new blanket for Christmas. Especially a super soft faux fur one at that! This blanket comes in multiple colors and sizes so you can find the perfect one for that blanket lover on your list.
Do you know somebody who has been wearing the same worn down slippers for way too long? It’s time for a new pair! Slippers are a must-have for a cozy night in. These slippers have a memory foam pad and plush fleece lining to keep your feet comfy and warm.
Nothing says cozy better than lighting a candle and wrapping up in a blanket. Now I love my bath & body works candles but this candle is my next favorite! It’s made with natural essential oils and has an amazing throw but it’s not overwhelming at the same time.
The Beauty Lover
I know we all know someone who is obsessed with beauty. Whether it’s new makeup or skincare products, these items will not disappoint.
New makeup brushes are always an awesome gift for a makeup lover. Even if they have many, they’ll appreciate new ones to add to their collection. This makeup brush set comes with 16 brushes for every purpose.
Facial Cleansing Brush System
When it comes to washing your face, your hands just aren’t enough. Every body not only deserves a nice cleansing brush but a brush with 7 attachments for various uses. This brush system has you covered when it comes to face washing, exfoliating, callus removal, and massaging!
Makeup Vanity Mirror
Coming from a makeup lover herself, I have to say that one mirror isn’t enough when applying makeup. I actually have this exact mirror from Amazon and I love it. It makes doing my eyebrows and eyeshadow so much easier with the magnified mirrors and built-in lights. The storage tray is also great for holding jewelry.
Scrunchies are very popular again so seeing 60 scrunchies for only $8 even makes me excited! Not only are they cute and comfortable when they’re holding your hair up but they double as a cute bracelet.
The Gym Rat
These gifts are for the one who’s serious about their workout routine and bettering themselves.
Yoga Exercise Cards
These cards are perfect for that yoga lover. These were made by a certified yoga instructor and the poses range from beginner to intermediate. Each card also has a QR code that you can scan with your phone to be directed to an instructional video for that pose!
Motivational Water Bottle
Everyone needs to drink more water but especially if they’re physically active. This water bottle, which comes in multiple colors, makes drinking water so much easier while keeping you motivated throughout the day. Dehydration? What’s that?
It’s important to keep track of your progress throughout your fitness journey. If you have goals, you should write them down. This fitness journal not only gives you the space to write down your daily workouts and progress in detail but it also has a helpful workout guide inside.
When going on a run or working out at the gym, this lightweight belt can keep your belongings in place comfortably. The phone holder holds most smartphones so you don’t have to worry about it being too small. It even comes with a headphone holder which is especially helpful if you like listening to music while working out.
The One Who Loves To Plan
Do you know somebody who needs to always jot things down in their planner, write notes, and needs to stay organized at all times?
I’m somebody who needs to write down their schedule and plans every single week in their planner. I completely understand the need to have a good planner. I currently have this weekly planner and I love it. Included are life coaching pages to help you figure out your plan for the year and a sheet of stickers which I love.
The one thing that I hate more than writing in my planner with a boring black pen is having my colored pens bleed through the pages. That doesn’t happen with these pens!
Adding stickers to planners makes planning fun and even therapeutic! This sticker pack comes with 1378 stickers! They range from purely decorative to productive and functional.
If they own multiple notebooks and planners, it’s likely that they need some cute organization for all of their items. This set comes with 5 organizers and has a variety of colors to choose from.
The Men In Your Life
As a woman, shopping for men is not my forte but after looking at amazon and asking a few men in my life what men typically like, I’m confident that the men in your life will love these gifts!
Beard Grooming Kit
If I do know anything about men is if they have a big full beard, they take care of it like women take care of their own hair. This kit comes with everything they need to properly care for their beard. A free ebook on beard care is also included!
Any guy on your list will appreciate this heavy-duty 10 in 1 tactical pen. Included is a flashlight, multitool head, screwdriver, knife, glass breaker, batteries, and ballpoint refills.
Smoked Spices Set
If he loves cooking, he’ll appreciate these spices that add delicious smokey flavors to his favorite dishes. These spices are also certified organic and kosher which is always nice!
Listening to music or talking on the phone just got easier and warmer! Nobody likes battling headphone cords when going on a run or heading to the store anyway.
I hope you all were able to find at least one awesome gift through this affordable gift guide. There will be more gift guides coming to my blog very soon so make sure you’re on the email list so you don’t miss them!
