Sometimes choosing the perfect gift might be not as easy as you think. Here are 15 cool gift ideas!
These days everything is digital and electronic. Taking time to write physical letter and sending it to them is a pleasant surprise. Instead of buying a card, why not make your own? It's so fun, special, and you can be creative thinking about the person you are giving it to!
Crafts are DIYs budget-friendly, special, and memorable. Here are some I've made:
3. MIRA Vacuum Insulated Travel Bottle
This Travel Bottle is so convenient and perfect when you are traveling or working out! They have so many colors to choose from and can hold both hot and cold beverage for hours!
Mugs are perfect as they have so many designs these days! They are literally everywhere, some of my favorites are this personalized mug cup from Etsy, this y tho mug, babe mug, and this rainbow marble mug from Urban Outfitters, and few from Zazzle.
I think if you are not sure what to give someone, giftcards are the best. These days most of the brands have giftcard option so you just need to choose the brand. Most popular ones are Macy's, Nordstrom, Sephora, Barnes & Nobles, Amazon and many more.
When I think of socks, the first brand that comes to my mind is forever 21. Forever 21 has so many cute socks design in a really good price. They are also having 21% with the code CYBER21. This ruffle lace socks is so cute, as well as this red fuzzy socks, this sushi print socks, and this over the knee socks! There are so many to choose from!
Books are probably the best gifts for anyone because everyone can learn from the book. I normally buy books from Amazon or Barnes & Nobles. You can find many textbooks or just any book in a really good price on Amazon. Some of my favorite books I've read are:
There are a lot of planners out there whether it's for organizing your thoughts, bullet journal use, or even lined out planners. It's a necessary one that I even use everyday. Kate Spade has some cute planners as well as Ban.do and Lilly Pulitzer.
9. Buying Lunch/Dinner/Coffee
I think buying lunch, dinner or simply grabbing a coffee to catch up is really good present. I think it's simple yet cozy to spend time with someone you love. If you are in Houston, check out these brunch places, nice restaurants or dessert cafe! You can make reservations through OpenTable.
Big calendars are useful when you need to keep track of certain things, like rent, bills and more! I love having a calendar separate from my planner which makes my life easier.
I think tea is perfect if they prefer tea over coffee. I love getting my tea from Teavana, and they have so many choices! Some of my favorites are the youthberry wild orange tea and the winterberry tea blend.
Candles are definitely a nice touch. If you pick the right one, the sweet and clean candle scents can brighten up your friend's mood. Imagine their room, their house, and everything smelling fabulous! I'm sure they will thank you for that. You can get some from Yankee Candle, Bath and Body Works, or HEB!
13. Kitchen Gadgets
Kitchen gadgets are perfect, especially for people who love food like me or who enjoy cooking! These also save time and money in the long run. I have shared in my 5 efficient products post as well, but I need to recommend this Brita faucet filter system. This has been my favorite kitchen gadget which saves money in the long run since you don't have to buy water. I also think various kitchen utensil sets are necessary if you cook homemade food like me. It's really useful!
14. Phone Cases
If you are ever looking for pretty phone cases, I recommend them from Urban Outfitters! There are more from Otter box, which are normally protective cases, and some from LuMee. I currently have this daisy one, and it looks so pretty with my rose gold iPhone 6S.
I always think these light boxes make a great touch in the house or your room! This one from Amazon has great value as well as this one from Urban Outfitters!
Gifts under $50 doesn't always mean you are giving them something not thoughtful. 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. Hope this gave you some gift ideas!
