We are almost halfway through November (say WHAT?!) and you know what that means!!! This is by far the best time of year and starting to see all of the holiday commercials on TV is making me so excited to start my holiday shopping! I know I know, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet but every year it seems like the sales start earlier - I've been seeing sales and even know some people who started to shop mid October. Shopping for the holidays is often stressful but it shouldn't be which is one of the many benefits of shopping earlier rather than later. This way you can also see what you've bought and still need to buy. I always find gift guides super helpful each year, so being able to create my own is so very exciting:
This gift guide will kick off one of my first series' of posts on my blog and I couldn't be more happy that this is the series to start with! My Holiday Gift List Series has officially begun - today with a list of things (ALL under $50!!) to buy for your best friends!
Shopping for my friends is usually the easier of the bunch on my list to shop for, mostly because I can think about things I would love to receive and go from there. Gift giving can get pretty expensive, which is why all of these picks are under $50! The best part is these are all great choices and could all be paired together if you wanted to give one of your BFF's a couple of things.
While treating your friends to a Starbucks gift card is something she'll no doubt love, wouldn't it be nice to change it up this year?! I love the idea of creating a little gift bag with a few things my friends will love, like this lip gloss for a beauty themed gift or a cute notebook set for your more organized friends. With blanket scarves being so popular this season, getting your girls a cute blanket scarf like this one or my absolute favorite scarf like this colorful and soft scarf is something she'll love and get lots of use out of this season too!
Each year I like to pick up a couple extra things just in case I forget something or need something extra. Here are some of my favorite extra little things to buy and keep at hand each holiday season:
