Choosing gifts for holidays, friend's birthday, boyfriend, girlfriend, family, or others could be sometimes difficult. (They say the best gift is money LOL because you will never go wrong)
But that doesn't mean you can't give a thoughtful gift!
Take a look at the guide below :)
Simply write a love, bff (best friend forever) , thank you, congrats, sorry letters to people!
Instead of buying a card, make your own!
It's so fun, special, and you can be creative thinking about the person you are giving it to!
DIYs budget-friendly, special, and memorable.
Some of the things I made were :
'open when' cards - write cards with a title of (ex. open when you feel sad) and put something inside
'100 reasons why I love you' jar - write 100 reasons why you love them and put it inside a jar
'painted initial cardboards' - paint significant dates or numbers and give it to them
'candy cards' - gather candy (ex. gummy bears) and then give it to the person with a note
'photo book' - color print out all the memories and put it inside the photo album, and then decorate it!
and more! :P
3. S'well Bottle
Great present for anyone! The marble design can never go wrong! :)
Similar to bottles, but mugs these days have artsy designs. They are literally everywhere!
Favorite mug shops: Urban Outfitters, Zazzle, Etsy
Well, technically it's money, but for a specific shop.
I normally give giftcards for Amazon, Victoria Secret, Barnes & Noble, or Starbucks.
Cute socks are another great present for all seasons!
I recommend forever 21, since it's cheap but has all different cute designs!
Books are thoughtful gift to anyone.
It makes them knowledgable, smart, and it's useful.
My all time favorite is "How to Win Friends & Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. Definitely a great book to read, lot to learn, and it changed my life.
Try giving them a book you really like, or a book you want to share with. <3
These ones are necessary for everyone.
It lets you keep track of your daily tasks and important plans.
Kate Spade has cute planners, as well as Ban.do .
(I found Ban.do in Nordstrom and their designs are cute!)
9. Buying Lunch/Coffee
If dinner might end up drinking, consider lunch!
Lunch is a great time to catch up with friends or family.
Why not celebrate a special day over lunch? Simple and cozy!
10. Nail Polish
Women, and sometimes men love nail polish.
It makes your nails pop! and pretty! <3
Few nail polish from target, walmart, or sephora will do the trick!
Any products your family or friends wanted, this is a good time.
Remember what they needed, and when you gift them the product, they will love it!
If you pick the right one, the sweet and clean candle scents can brighten someone's mood!
Their room will smell good, their house will smell good, their everything will smell fabulous :P
Some shops are Yankee Candle, Bath and Body Works, or Urban Outfitters.
Who doesn't like cute caps or beanies?
Hats make great gifts for friends, family, and others!
My favorite tea shop is Teavanna! They have a lot of delicious tea to sample from, and I think it's a great gift for all seasons (since you can buy it either cold or hot). I prefer sweet fruit flavor!
Some others are Yogi, Twining's, & Tazo.
I always go to those complimentary tea section in Galleria while shopping :P
Backpacks are must-haves. Whether you are using for school, work, outdoor and indoor activites, or personally, one backpack holds a lot of items!
Other than the list, here are also few cool websites for gift ideas!
Gifts under $50 doesn't always mean you are giving them something useless.
The list I came up with, I really thought would be great gift(s).
It's also true that these items on the list can go over $50,
but you can always find decent quality and nice ones if you choose right :)
