The holiday season is now in full swing…holiday music is playing everywhere, Starbucks has their festive red cups, sweaters and boots are making an appearance, and beautiful trees and lights are going up everywhere! That also means holiday planning and shopping is in full swing, too. Here are some ideas we put together for the ladies in your life, our favorite gift ideas for her under $30.
1. Porcelain Typography Tray
I received this delicate initial tray for my birthday and LOVE it. They have all different sorts of cute designs. I use it everyday on my dresser…my favorite earrings, ring, any little trinket…it’s the perfect size. $10
2. Keep Calm and Caffeinate Mug
As a fellow, devoted coffee drinker, I saw this while I was shopping and fell in love. Sur La Table has several cute “Keep Calm” items…but this mug is my favorite! Add your favorite small bag of coffee, K-cups or Starbucks gift card inside the coffee mug, wrap it in clear cellophane and add some jingle balls to top it off – voila! $9.95
3. ESSIE – Winter 2013 Nail Polish Cube Collection
I saw this idea floating around somewhere, and thought it was adorable. Nab a cute Essie nail polish gift set…I like the winter color set at Ulta Beauty. Then, add a cute little gift tag, with a free “For Your Mistle Toes” printable. $17
4. Embroidered Purple Jewelry Box
This is a gorgeous jeweled paisley jewelry box from Pier One. Perfect for little baubles and treasures. $15.96
5. L’OCCITANE –
Shea Butter Hand Cream
I love L’Occitane beauty products – they always feel very luxurious. And, their Shea Butter Hand Cream is hands down (hee hee) the best there is. Great buy for a quality gift. $12 – $28
6.Dry Divas – Designer Shower Caps
I am obsessed with these. High quality, super cute, and a gift every woman can use. Use Dry Divas promo code TINYORANGES for 10% off. $24 – $30
7. Capabunga – Reusable Wine Caps
I stumbled upon this find at Anne’s Boutique Wines in Costa Mesa and have snatched up a handful for gifts. Not only do they come in clever sayings, but you can literally turn the bottle of wine upside down and not one drop will escape. Perfect for storing open whites on its side in the fridge. $7.95
8. Wine Enthusiast – Wine Glass Writer Metallic Pens
While we are on the topic of wine, I also found these darling metallic wine glass writing pens at Anne’s on the the same day. They are AWESOME! No more forgetting what symbol you are, clanking of a wine tag, or accidentally stealing someone else’s “already been sipped from” glass! Simply write your name on your glass and then wipe it clean at the end of the party. $19.95 for 6-pack online. Anne’s sell them in a 3 pack for $10, or find here on Amazon.
9. Minted – Personalized Journals
Even in today’s high tech age, a notebook can still always come in handy. Minted’s premium journals can be customized with names, even photos. Pattern shown above is Pretty Poppies [affiliate links.]
10. We Olive – Artisan Olive Oils and Vinegars
My husband and I happened on We Olive on a date night at the OC Mart Mix awhile back and after a glass of wine and flight of oils and vinegars to taste, we were hooked. We came home with the Aged Basalmic, Garlic Olive Oil and Fresh Basil Olive Oil and they are all truly to die for. I mix the basalmic and one of the oils for a salad dressing, and it is the best I have ever had. So fresh and flavorful. Around $21 per bottle, take your bottle back and refills are $14. Eco-love.
Happy shopping! And please comment below with any other great gift ideas for the special ladies on your list.
