The Holiday Gift Guide - For Her Under $100


When it comes to the women in our lives, we are rarely shopping for the same type of woman. Our best friend can be the beauty guru who is wanting the latest eyeshadow palette, or the friend who is always entertaining and can never have too many candles to add to her collection! No matter the bestie, sister, mom or co-worker you’re shopping for, I’ve rounded up some items below from the fashion, beauty, home, and accessories categories to make gifting the women in your life easy!

Gift her something to pamper herself like this Rose Quartz Workout Kit or a Drybar Gift Set for perfect hair no matter where she is! When it comes to beauty, she is sure to love anything that adds a little more me-time to her schedule! Think face masks, bath bombs & if all else fails to meet the standard, a mani-pedi gift card to her favorite salon is an easy go-to she’ll be sure to use!

For the fashionista gal, a pair of shoes is always a good idea! If you know a brand she loves and her shoe size, stick to the basics - a flat or pump that go with anything! I love these Sam Edelman Loafers - they’re perfect for a casual office setting and even weekend wear for a chic, yet practical look. Shopping for a gal who is a little more glam? Go for leopard print or a pump with a feminine touch like these bow heels, also by Sam Edelman.

Shopping for the girl who is always hosting or entertaining? Go the practical route with things she will continuously use like wine glasses or coasters! Ever since I’ve watched Scandal 5 years ago, I wanted the “Olivia Pope” wine glasses that didn’t break the bank and these look so similar! It’s also great to go neutral in color when shopping for someone’s home to ensure whatever you’re buying will match. Agate is a gorgeous and neutral option for most home styles and decor. I love these Agate Coasters and how they add a touch of glam to any room! They also are a great gift for a newly married couple with their last name initial!

Some inexpensive and full proof ideas for any girl are the practical gifts. A notebook or agenda she can use all year long, a new phone case in a fun color or cheeky pom beanie to keep her warm until the temperatures rise back above freezing! Check out my gift guide below for more ideas and happy shopping, y’all!

The Holiday Gift Guide - The Guys


When it comes to shopping for the men in our lives, it can be tough to find something they really love or even need. Why do they make it so difficult?! I basically have to beg Kollin to give me an idea of something he wants. He literally never asks for anything new unless the old something is falling apart so as you can imagine, a gift simply because you thought he’d love it is kind of a weird experience for him ha.

But, when it comes to the guys we love, there are a couple categories that are an easy go-to no matter what your man is like. First, clothing he’ll wear all the time. Whether he is into sports, working out or just lounging watching the game on Sunday, he can always use some sweatshirts, athletic t-shirts or his favorite sports team’s shirt. Kollin is a big Cubs fan so last year I couldn’t find anything I liked for him and just started buying a ton of Cubs items; t-shirts, golf club covers, sweatpants, etc. He loved all of it!

The second category that pleases most men is a watch. No matter their style, having a watch is something they can use for years to come. If you find an inexpensive one, pair it with a watch box so he can keep it safe and display his growing collection.

Lastly, the utility/functionality category is the easiest to fill. A new water bottle he can take to work or on his workout is something he’ll use all the time. A backpack or bag for work is a great option for the guy who is commuting, bringing work home or just likes to take things with him wherever he goes. I gifted Kollin this one when he got into law school and he LOVES it. It is on the pricey side, but comes with a lifetime warranty and is the perfect size for an everyday work bag or even travel personal bag.

I’ve added some more great gifts in a variety of price ranges below and hope this helps find something he will love! Be sure to check back to the blog for more gift guides leading up to Christmas! Thanks so much for reading!
