Gift Guide: For the Roomies

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 6.43.00 PM

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.

Bargain Bangs

So broke college girl here. And the even sadder thing is I’m a broke college girl who is addicted to shopping. I’m sure many of you share my disease. If you have shopaholics anonymous number holla at me. Been looking for that. Anyways I have been strategically scooped the internet, outlets, and other places of shopping that have the best deals for the cutest (no promises on quality). Here they are!

1.  simpleaddiction.com Sometimes it takes a little digging to find something I really want but I have now bought two dresses from there for $10! Best part is they always have promotions and shipping is only $2! I can’t wait to wear the below dress on game days! My pathetic minimum wage income can handle that! (Please excuse how wrinkled it is.)

2. tobi.com If you haven’t checked this site out yet then you have been living under a very sad rock. Go now! Seriously such fashion forward clothes for a small price, especially in their sale. The below shirt was only $9! And I bought one for my birthday for $12! Don’t worry how far you live because all shipping is FREE! Cannot argue with that. Also its 50% off your first order. This site is love. It always treats my buying jitters (similar to coffee jitters but not)

3. Gabriel Brothers or as I lovingly call it, Gabe’s. Okay so this place is a little disorganized and some of their stuff is uhhh questionable but I can always find at least one good piece of clothing there. Yes it does take patience and a little bit of luck but this place has awesome deals! Below I bought a fur vest from there for $5! YES FIVE WHOLE DOLLARS. And the jean jacket? $10! If you have not had the pleasure of being acquainted with this classy establishment, it is a TJ Maxx-esque department store with designer (and sometimes not designer) over stock.

If you have any great places that have great deals let me know! I am always looking for the next place to spend my grocery money at (priorities, am I right?)
