I’ve been placed on a budget for Christmas gifts. This meant I had to get creative in deciding what to get my girlfriends that was meaningful and not too pricey. So I decided to look around and see what my favorite items were and collect them. I also have to look for items that won’t be too bulky to pack as I’m travelling home with them or shipping them. Because I know some of my friends read this blog I won’t go into details on specific products but just list options that would have them wondering :P. Everything below has a low to high price range so it is always up to you to decide where to get it from while considering the quality of item you are purchasing.
- Nail polish/treatment
- Eyebrow pencil/kit
- Lip gloss/lipstick
- Wristlet with a phone compartment
- Giftcards in stores that sell all of the above
You got the idea right?
I’ve personalized each gift with something that I see as unique to each girlfriend, something that speaks to wherever their interests/lives are right now. For example, one girlfriend is recently engaged, so something bridal may/may not be included in her gift.
When in doubt (or on a serious budget), Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, CVS and other pharmacy/drugstores can hook you up. But make sure it’s a product you’ve seen good reviews of or that you yourself consider to be a great product. It always helps that the product has special meaning to you. If you have no limit on spending Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Ulta may give you a headache deciding, but at least you know you will find something there that is also of good quality.
Hope this helps!
