Here’s a scary thought: There’s only 6 more Mondays until Christmas! As much as I advocate celebrating one holiday at a time (right now that would be Thanksgiving), I can’t deny the allure and practicalness of Christmas shopping early! In that spirit I have decided to do a gift guide a week until Christmas! All of my gifts will be under $50 because I am on that #brokecollegegirl budget and I feel like many of you are too! So many of my finds are going to be STEALS and you should get them FAST because I know they are going to be gone quick! Without further ado here is my gift ideas for my friends/roommates (who have way too expensive taste 😉 )
1. The Blanket Scarf- Simple Addiction
You know that thing that everyone has been wearing? Well don’t let your friends get left behind in the trend-following dust. I’ve found the perfect scarf (already have 2) at a great price! At $13 you might just have to buy one for yourself too (I know I did).
2. Kate Spade Necklace- Nordstrom
Nordstrom is having some like awesome fall sale and I am just going to roll with it. This necklace comes in four different colors including tortoise and would be the perfect piece of dazzling neck candy (yes neck candy). Plus who wouldn’t love a little Kate Spade in their life?
3. Kendra Scott Earrings- Nordstrom
Seriously the Nordstrom sale is awesome and if you have a little bit of time you should really check out all the great deals they have! These Kendra Scott earrings are mesmerizing and I know I’m putting them on my christmas list! I just know that some of my friends would swoon over these too.
4. Tommy Bahama Watch- MyHabit
So I recently discovered this website called myhabit.com. It’s a website that has crazy markdowns on designer items. Apparently Access Hollywood talks about it? Anyways that’s how my mom became hooked on it and now she’s got me addicted to it too! Watches are such a statement nowadays and my roomies would love to have this one gracing their arm.
5. The Happy Planner- Me and My Big Ideas
Absolutely OBSESSED with this planner. I actually originally saw it at Michaels and have been researching about it all day. The website I listed has a much greater selection and also carries all the accessories for it (who knew planners could have accessories?). Anyways I think this my next move planner-wise (sorry Lilly). I know many of my friends are off to grad-school next year and organization is going to be key to their success and sanity. Plus there’s a ton of cute stickers, flags and paperclips that just makes this the cutest and most useful gift.
