Christmas Gifts for Her Under $50 Plus a Giveaway


I love shopping for make-up, jewelry and all things sparkly. The following are some fun Christmas stocking/gift ideas for “her” that are sure to make any girly girl smile πŸ™‚

Love this set from Bare Minerals called “Fired Up” for $39.Β  Any make up loving gal would be thrilled to find this under the tree.

Love these PJ tops from Forever 21. They are each $22.80 and go great with your favorite pair of leggings. Love Pullover. Jumbo Heart Pullover.

I have a little obsession with Essie Nail Polish and I’m loving these pretty shades of pink. Left: Strawberry Shortcake, Nude Beach and True Love. You can find Essie at Target now for about $7 a bottle, yay!

I am in love with this set by Fresh called Sugar Berry Merriment. What a great deal for $28.

My very favorite purse essential is this “Cherry Me” stick by Maybelline. It’s about $3, feels like chapstick with the perfect amount of tint. This is available at most drugstores. Perfect as a stocking stuffer!

Loving this J.Crew bangle that is on sale for $22! You better hurry if you like this one, I have a feeling it’s going to be sold out very soon.


This fun set is by Tarte and it’s called The Stand Outs. For $25, it’s a great stocking stuffer!

Loving these Dreamy Cotton pants from J.Crew. A little pricy for $48, but I figure that when I wear loungwear as my “uniform” it’s nice to splurge on some comfies πŸ™‚

One of my favorite Stella and Dot rings is on sale for $19.50! This is the Midnight Bloom Ring, that is regularly $39.00 so it’s a smokin’ deal right now. I love that it is adjustable too, so you know it’ll fit πŸ™‚

Stella & Dot has some of the best stud earrings. I own 2 out of 3 of these and they are my favorite “go to” earrings. Beautiful quality and what a perk that they come in the cutest gift box ready for giving πŸ™‚Β  From left to right we have the Black Gigi Studs for $24 The Swallow Studs for $19 and the lovely Vintage Studs for $29.

Contest is now closed. Heather, entry #687 has been chosen and notified as the winner.

I’ll be giving away this gorgeous adjustable Midnight Bloom Ring from Stella & Dot and the sweet Swallow StudsΒ  They are so pretty in person and they come in the cutest packaging too.

    I’m almost 27 and my mom still fills a stocking for me, my husband and my 2 kids. She always puts a new toothbrush in all of our stockings and oddly I look forward to it just because it’s always been a tradition for me.

    My mom always gives us See’s butterscotch hard candies to fill up the empty spaces in our stockings. Even though I’ve somewhat lost my sweet tooth as I’ve grown up, it’s still a fun tradition.
