Gift Ideas for Her - All Under $50! Friday Favorites Edition!

Well, Christmas will be here before you know it, and if you're looking for a little something for your best friend, your mom, or even YOU, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite things I've found recently!

First up is this special edition almond oil from L'Occitane! Nordstrom is selling this limited edition set as part of a cute ornament, so it's already gift-wrapped and ready to give! It includes a small almond oil, cream and lotion. This would be a perfect teacher gift or stocking stuffer a friend or family member. At only $14, it's an amazing value!

I first tried this almond oil during a gift exchange my MOPS table was doing (that's mothers of preschoolers in case you haven't participated in it before). Anyhow, one December the rule was to buy your favorite item under $10, and we'd do a swap. I was given this tiny bottle of almond oil (not the beautiful gift set I've mentioned above, just the oil), and I wasn't quite sure what to do with it? The gal who gave it to me mentioned that it's all she uses when she shaves her legs. So I tried it, and OH MY GOSH, it's amazing! It smells delicious and that tiny bottle will last you ages! You truly only need a few drops of it!

Next up is probably one of my most favorite pair of earrings I've ever owned! Are you familiar with the Noonday Company? It's a company that supports women artisans around the world making jewelry, scarves, handbags and other handmade goods! They are ethically made and fairly paid, and the company also puts a portion of their profits towards adoption funds! I've owned several pieces of their jewelry over the past 5 years, and I love it! But I don't think I've ever been stopped and asked about a pair of earrings as much as I have when I wear these Equinox earrings!

I especially love these because they are made in Guatemala, one of my favorite countries! My husband was born there, and we've been back several times to visit. It's just such a special country, and the handicrafts there are exquisite! These earrings are no different.

Next up, the coziest, prettiest slippers you may have ever seen! I first saw these online when I was shopping for my husband and trying to find him some new jeans, but apparently I got distracted! I popped into the store today, and they were even prettier and more sparkly than I thought! They run true to size, even with the furry lining. I often wear a 7 - 7.5 and I was able to comfortably buy these in a 7. I used a 30% off coupon code, so they were only $17! I'm wearing the silver, but you can see in the pic below that they also come in a beautiful rose gold!

I'm so happy that leopard is making a major appearance this season! I love little pops of leopard print, and I thought leopard scarf was just perfect! I was surprised to find how much I loved it, especially since it's under $14! Since it is an "infinity" style, it looks very polished and is easy to wear! I was also so impressed by the quality! It's not too bulky, and not itchy at all!

Next up is one of my new, favorite fragrances! I have a tendency to wear the same perfumes over and over, but I really fell in love with this scent from Philosophy! This holiday gift set is a great value! I'm normally not a "rose" or overly floral perfume person, but this scent is so unique and not at all overpowering! At under $50, it'd make a wonderful gift! Remember, Nordstrom offers free returns (even on open and used products), so the risk is low with this one! It's difficult to find this scent in a set, so if you want to try it, now is the time!

Finally, if you or someone you know loves face masks, this little gift set from Origins would be the perfect Christmas present!

These are some of my favorite masks, and Origins is currently offering free shipping and gift wrap. They wrap their items in beautiful gift boxes with satin ribbon and include a gift note for your recipient, at no extra cost to you!

Well, that's all for today! I hope you've enjoyed this little holiday gift guide - I hope to bring you a few more before Christmas arrives!

Happy weekend!
