Holiday Gift Guide: Under $20

I am still incredibly shaken that it is November 9th. Like, where did this fall go? It blows my mind that I am already beginning my gift guide posts and thinking about what I'll be getting each of my friends for their presents. This year I am doing my guides a little differently, so let me know if you like/don't like it this way. Usually I pair gifts with a specific theme (hostess, best friend, etc.) but this year there will be an Under $20 (below), Under $40, Under $60, Under $80 and Under $100. So there will be more stuff and more fun (hopefully?). 

Cactus Bottle Opener // Lemon Pin // Zip Pouch // Lip Tint // City Coasters // Holiday Card 1, Holiday Card 2 // Pencils // Notebook // Monogram Champagne Flutes // Geode Coasters // Wool Socks // Stickers // Face Mask 1, Face Mask 2, Face Mask 3, Face Mask 4

Cactus Bottle Opener - How cute is this? I have discovered that so many of my friends who are just now turning 21 do not have essentials like bottle openers & wine openers. This is such a practical gift that can be so flipping cute. This one is perfect for my gals living in Texas (or New Mexico, Arizona) but there is this cute Lilly one as well for my FL ladies.

Lemon Pin - I have never been super into pins, whether you put them on your backpack or your trendy jean jacket but this collection from Rifle Paper Co. might be too cute to pass up. They also have this one, this one and this adorable one

 Zip Pouch - Everyone always needs a new zip pouch so this is another practical but super cute gift. You can use it for make-up, pens, yarn (if you're into that). It doesn't matter it is just so cute. Also, if you are getting creative with gifts you could get a few small things (maybe their favorite candies) and put them in this pouch. If this Audrey Hepburn-esque one isn't for you, check out this one or this one

Lip Tint - I've been a recent lover of lip tints after someone gave me a sample from Benefit. I really like the look of this one and it would be a great small gift to get a friend in your life. I love receiving beauty products from friends because I am not one to buy them for myself. It also comes in this color

City Coasters - These would make a great hostess gift if your hostess loves to travel. They come in a set with all different far off places and are just so adorable. 

Geode Coasters - Much like above these are the perfect item for a hostess. It cracks me up because last December I bought Hannah geode coasters on Amazon. They were so expensive on every site but now they must be popular because so many sites are selling them at reasonable prices. 

Holiday Card 1 & Holiday Card 2 - To go along with any of the gifts you need a cute little card. Evelyn Henson is one of my favorite artists and these cards are too adorable. You can even make these into little works of art after the holiday season is over by putting them on core-board or making them into magnets. 

Pencils - Pencils are such an underrated tool once you graduate from school. But using a pencil can be so nice (I recently started using them for one of my classes and I never realized how much I missed them). Plus, these are inspirational so you're bestie can get some stuff done when she uses them. I also like this set (there are tons on Etsy). 

Notebook - If your friend or hostess loves to write, makes lots of to-do lists or is a planner in general, get them a cute notebook! I like the one above from Lilly but Kate Spade has some adorable ones (here and here). 

Monogram Champagne Flutes - Some of my friends are lovers of the champs so this would be such a cute gift for them but it's also adorable for hostesses. These aren't the most traditional but dang I love them. You can get them monogramed with their first or last name letter. 

Wool Socks - This is probably just a me thing, but I am obsessed with comfy socks. Like...I have so many pairs and I always ask for more. Camp socks are the legitimate best thing and why not get these? I also shop for mine at TJ Maxx and the Mast Store.

Stickers - How cute are these? I think laptop stickers would be such an adorable present for a new friend or if you know someone who loves to cover their laptop/water bottle in them. I personally love to buy my stickers from Red Bubble

Face Mask 1Face Mask 2Face Mask 3 & Face Mask 4 - One time a friend got me a ton of face masks for a secret santa present. Seriously one of the greatest gifts because the holiday season can be stressful, or it is during your finals and face masks are the loveliest thing to go home to. Plus, you can find some real fun retro ones right by the cash register at Ulta. 

If you love any of these gift ideas, let me know below-xoxo darling, Hayden.
