The 2018 Ultimate Gift Guide

A couple weeks ago, I asked on my instagram stories if y’all would be interested in a gift guide this year, and 90% of you said yes, that you love them! Then, I asked if you prefer them by categories or by price point, and that poll was a little closer. But by price point won the majority, so this year’s gift guide is by price point, with some suggestions on who you may want to buy them for (or add them to your own wish list 😉).

So here are some of my favorites (and even some from my own wish list!) that I think your people will love too!

Under $25:

Cranberry Fusion Herbal Tea – This is perfect for that tea lover in your life (or for yourself)! This tea is only offered around the holidays, and it’s delicious – hot or cold! I always buy a couple for myself and to give as gifts.

Friendly Face Mug – These mugs are so cute! There are 4 options – I want Mrs. Claus! Add some tea or hot cocoa mix, and they would make the perfect gift for a co-worker or a stocking stuffer. (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

Rose Quartz Face Roller – Okay, this is $3 over, but it’s close enough and so worth it. A face roller feels so good, boosts circulation, reduces puffiness, relieves tension… it’s like a mini massage for your face. Anyone would love to get this – plus, it’s pretty 😍 (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

Chenille Cardigan Sweater – I mentioned this cardigan in this post earlier this month, and well, I finally received mine, and it’s by far one of my favorite cardigans this season. It’s so soft, cozy, and it surprisingly kept me really warm! Get this for your girlfriend, mom, sister, friend, nurse, hair dresser – seriously, I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love this cardigan. Right now, it’s on sale for $20!

This lipstick – I listed this as one of my beauty faves in my post last month, and it’s currently on sale! This is a perfect stocking stuffer for any lady in your life. I love the Ruby Grapefruit color – it’s a great pinky red for almost any skin tone. (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

Oil Roller/Lipstick Holder – This is supposed to be a lipstick holder, but you could easily buy this for your oily friends to hold their favorite oil rollers! A few dollars over this limit, but currently on sale to knock it down a few 😉 (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

I don’t know about you, but I love getting + giving candles as gifts. Especially “fancier,” luxury candles, ones that you may not buy for yourself. So here are some of my tried-and-true favorites:

This one – the scent is amazing! It’s really hard to describe – it’s deep, earthy, and a little sweet. Just trust me, it’s good. (Get it a little cheaper and with Prime here!)

Same brand, different scents – both of these scents smell so good – very fall + wintery. The tins are really pretty too!

This candle is a dupe for the famous Volcano candle. You know the candle they are always burning in Anthropologie? That bright, citrusy scent – this one smells just like it and is a fraction of the cost!

These mini sets are great for gifts! Give them as a set or split them up! I personally own 2 of the 3 in this set, and they both smell so good. The saijo persimmon smells very similar to that Volcano candle 😍

Pair any of the candles with this and you have a great gift anyone would be happy to receive!

Under $50:

Cozy Blanket Scarf – I had a similar scarf like this in my gift guide last year (I own that one and love it!), but it is no longer available. However, this one I think I may actually like better because it comes in 6 colors! I love the green, dark grey, and, dare I say it, even the dark orange. (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

Monogram Necklace – This necklace will forever be a go-to gift for me as long as they’re still making it. It makes a statement in a minimal way. And it’s personal with the monogram feature! (Anthro sale – 30% EVERYTHING! Discount applied in cart)

Vinyasa Scarf Rulu – This is another go-to scarf for me. It can be worn so may different ways! I love traveling with it too because it can double as a blanket on the plane. So many colors to choose from – even a grey and white stripe! Definitely a great value!

Minnetonka Slippers – I own these slippers (got them for Christmas) and love them! They have a sole on the bottom (which is great if you want to walk outside) and cozy, soft faux fur inside. I love the cinnamon suede color!


$50 & above:

These cozy things were on my list this year. I got the moccasin style last year and loved them, but I wanted something that covered my ankle too.

I shared this coat in my November faves post earlier this month, and I put it on my Christmas list! It’s warm, affordable, and cute! Win-win-win.

Okay, so you know you’re an adult when this makes your Christmas wish list. But I can’t express how much I love the one I have now! I’ve had it for several years now and need a new one. It’ll change how you clean forever! Once you go cordless, you won’t go back. It’s so easy and handy! Worth every penny in my opinion. There are several models out so look for the one of the cheaper ones (unless you want to go big – then go for it!) – they will still get the job done! THIS ONE is currently on sale for Cyber Week! 38% off!!

I got a sample of this in my last Nordstrom order, and I’m half loving it, half regretting it. I feel in love with this scent! (Naturally, I would fall in love with a spendy one 🤣) It’s unique, unisex, and just different than anything I’ve had before.

This kitchen gadget – I mentioned this in my most recent post, and I love having it! It’s one of those gadgets that you don’t really need, but it’s really nice to have when you do.


For the Boys (most under $25!):

This pouch is great for that special guy in your life who carries a bunch of small stuff around with him, but doesn’t want to carry a purse.. I mean, murse. They can stash their chapstick, extra cash, electronic cords, earbuds, and any other goodies, and then, throw it in their backpack, middle console, gym bag.

This waffle thermal is a basic staple, but nice enough to wear out to a casual dinner date with jeans and boots. It comes in 6 colors and is currently on sale! (Heck, I even kinda want one 🤣)

This robe is perfect for someone who wants a robe, but doesn’t want to be too hot while wearing one. It gives you that cozy feeling without all the weight.

This thermos for that coffee lover in your life.

This jogger PJ set looks cozy and stylish!

This monogram glass set for the craft beer connoisseur or to add to your bar cart!

I’ve heard everyone who has these loves them, including my guy – so I’m sure yours would love them too!
