Ho Ho Ho (and a Happy Hannukah, Kwanza and New Years) It is that festive time of the year again when shopping becomes both a blessing and a curse (as you circle the parking lot at the mall for the 15th time hoping to find a spot that isn’t in another state). Finding the perfect gift for (fill in the blank) without breaking the bank can be a chore even for those of us who love to shop. So, I have scoured the internet (so you can shop in pajamas without leaving your comfy bed) and have found some adorable and affordable items that would definitely bring a smile to the face of the recipient of your choice.
The trinkets and treasures are all less than $25 and would be perfect for an office Secret Santa, a hostess gift, or for any of the women in your life. I especially love the “Wish” snow globe with it’s gold and sparkle that makes me think of my childhood and feel hopeful about the future all at the same time. And what fashionista goddess wouldn’t love to start her morning off with the glamorous “But First Coffee” cup (good for your style quotient and the environment)? And, for the girl who has everything, how about a package of Sugarfina champagne gummy bears (decadent and delicious) or the humorous “Champagne Please” bell which would dress up any desk? I also adore the Pinch Provisions gym kit for my exercise-loving friends because it contains all the essentials for a post workout girl (like emergency socks and mini dry shampoo) in smile-worthy packaging that says “I don’t sweat, I sparkle”.
Whatever you choose, consider stocking up on some of these fantastic finds and keep them with a gift bag and holiday card nearby in case you need a last minute hostess gift or an unexpected present for the friend who stops by with something for you. And just think, if you do not need to give them out, you can always gift them to your favorite Secret Santa, yourself.
Happy shopping… xx Amanda Brooke
