My Favorite Things: Friends + Family

With Christmas in just a short 23 days, now is the perfect time to finalize those gifts for the ones that are near and dear. Though some friends and family are easy to buy for, others are significantly harder, meaning that there is always room for wish lists and gift ideas. Some of my own Christmas gifts for my friends and family may be coming from these lists, and I may have shared it as a wish list of my own, as well, because my wish list never stops growing. These gift ideas are all $100 or under, making them fit right into your budget.
Christmas For Her

Jewelry is one of my favorite things to gift the ladies in my life, and my favorites on this list are the emerald Kendra Scott earrings {my best friend actually gave me a pair this year as an early Christmas present this year}. A jewelry organizer is also a great gift for the friend, sister, or mom that loves to display her pretty jewels. Though makeup is often a preferential thing, most of the gals I know would hardly turn down a beauty kit, like this Bobbi Brown lipstick trio or the all new Urban Decay Naked Travel Palette, which is now on my wish list as well. Fun accessories like a clutch, phone case, or pair of shoes are also the perfect gift.

When buying for the gents, I often go for the same type of gifts. My boyfriend, dad, and brother often receive the same gifts but I see them use or wear them often, so I take that as a sign. A standard is a great dress shirt, and though many may thing clothes are boring, my guy never complains about a new shirt. For the active guy, the FitBit squeezes in right under $100 and can make a great gift. A new timepiece is also a great gift option, and there is such a variety of watches out there that there is bound to be one that fits the man in your life’s taste. Other options are a wallet, cologne gift set {my dad has a favorite scent that he receives every Christmas}, a travel set, or a nice pair of headphones.

  27. I love Urban Decay Naked lip gloss. I picked some up from Sephora in Hawaii in June when I was there but sadly it is all gone :) On a brighter note Australia's very first Sephora store in opening in Sydney on Friday so we Aussies will soon be able to shop locally for all the brands we swoon over and travel for.

  29. I'm dying for the a Naked on the Run palette and might just make it a gift to myself! A standard gift my dad gets every year is a nice dress shirt and sweater! It's such a good idea and something you know they'll appreciate and use. Great lists!
