2018 Gift Guide - Gifts $30 and under

When I started thinking about what holiday content I wanted to share on the blog I started by thinking of what holiday content I enjoy seeing from others. Gift Guides are the obvious go to for October through the end of the year, but if we're being honest those posts are the ones I'm least likely to open on other blogs. Now I'm not saying I never open gift guides, but I find most of them just don't appeal to me. Most feel like just a repeat of everything I could find by clicking the gifts section of Nordstrom and I think we're all smart enough to be able to do that without a linked gift guide. So after much thought I've decided to be much more selective in the gift guides I do publish this year and honestly today's may be the only one I publish.

Gifts $30 and under are my favorite gifts because they are so versatile. These can be for stocking stuffers, white elephant parties, coworkers or small just because. Most gifts in this category are a little frivolous but that's what make them so fun!

history of women mug - If I thought I had room for another coffee mug I would buy this one in a heart beat. I think coffee mugs are great gifts because they're available in such a wide variety of colors and prints and styles.
cow ornament - Ornaments are my favorite gift for someone I don't know well. Cute local boutiques have great options, but they're sometimes on the more expensive side. Department stores have great choices and are usually a great bargain!
glitter hour glass - There's no way you could open this and not smile! I think this would be such a fun gift for your favorite gal pal at work.
tumbler - Like ornaments, tumblers are some of my favorite gifts for people I don't know super well. Everyone needs to stay hydrated so this is a fun and practical gift.
peppermint bark - I can't stop won't stop eating peppermint bark. It is my holiday guilty pleasure and I thought this puppy paws version was extra cute!
earring supply kit - If you're trying to find a practical gift this is the one for you! It has a variety of earring backs and wires to help you make your favorite pair wearable again.
picture perfect picture frame - A framed photo is a great gift for someone when you know you want to give something meaningful, but maybe don't have a huge budget. This Kate Spade one is currently on sale and darling!
face mask set - This set is a great value; 4 masks for under $10! Add a bottle of wine or a candle and this is a super great gift for someone in need of a little self care and relaxation.
bubblebath - I love philosophy's holiday collection! These delicious scented bubble baths are such a  fun gift for any age

What are your favorite $30 and under gifts?
