Weather it’s because you have a big family, are stuffing stockings, or are simply on a tight budget this year, there are tons of fabulous gift options under $30.  Having a few of these on your shopping list is never a bad idea.

The classic black and white stripe make this beanie would be perfect for a cousin, friend, or even your brother’s new girlfriend.  This is hands down the best hand creme I’ve ever used it comes in two sizes small and large.  I love the small as a stocking stuffer. And while you’re at it, why not add this cult classic as well.  Pretty paper goods are fun gifts that fall into the “wouldn’t buy it for yourself” category. Who wouldn’t love to see this in the morning, and take this into afternoon meetings.  More than just a headband, I can tell you from experience this sucker doesn’t move, making it ideal for your yogi or runner friends.  Someone you can’t satisfy with espresso?  This is adorable, and would make morning loose tea that much more fun to make.  There’s a glamour girl on everyone’s list, and this would satisfy just about every single one.  With freezing temps, this reminder to have a warm heart is cute and practical.

While some of the gifts above can be great hostess gifts, I also wanted to share this set of small candles.  It’s a perfect choice if you have multiple parties to attend, as you can break up the set into individual gifts.

And before you ask, I haven’t forgotten about the guys.  Sometimes you need to know your strong suit and shopping for guys, even my guy, is not mine. If it’s a men’s gift guide you need here’s one that covers your bases from button downs, to tech.  See, even one of my favorite bloggers, Emily, farmed this task out to her hubby.
