A Broke Girl’s Gift Guide: Gifts Under $75

A Broke Girl’s Gift Guide: Gifts Under $75

For all you budget shoppers out there, it can be hard to find great gifts that don’t break the bank. I feel ya! Thanks to my insanely high San Francisco rent, I never get to spend much on gifts. So, I rounded up the best affordable gifts under $75 for the 2015 holidays!

Andy Warhol  Stamped Lips Print – $72: I love how classy and feminine this print is. I could easily see this is any friend or mother’s house, adding a touch of color and whimsy to their walls.

Dog Books Ends – $32: How cute are these?! Any bookworm in your life will adore these dog book ends on their shelves. I think I need these for Robin – he really wants a wiener dog.

Geometric Picture Frame – $15: Frames can get really boring, which is why I love this geometric frame. It adds flare and personality to any desk and any photo.

2016 World Traveler Desk Calendar – $16: Everyone needs a good desk calendar, something inspiring. I personally love this world traveler calendar. The graphics are vintage styled, beautiful and makes me want to travel the world ASAP!

diptyque Rose Candle – $32: Candles are a staple for every household. They act as decor as well as a scent. I also really like this one, this one and this one.

Essie Nail Polish – $8: Essie is a well-known high-quality nail polish. Women covet their Essie polishes. Instead of just giving one or two, gift a whole set of colors to really make a lasting impression.

Wake Up, Kick Ass – $24: Words cannot explain how much I love this pouch! So sassy and inspiring at the same time. Any women in your life will love this.

Naked Palette – $54: I remember saving up for my first Naked Palette in college. It was more expensive than my normal makeup and I would have loved getting this as a gift because it is such a great eye shadow. I wear it almost every day! If you’re shopping for a younger girl or a makeup addict, this is a great gift to give.

Statement Pave X-Ring in Rose Gold – $60 : A friend once gave me a set of stacking rings and it was one of my favorite gifts. Small, subtle jewelry like this X-ring can be worn everyday.

Blue Wide Brim Fedora -$52: Hats make great gifts because people can be so iffy about hats. I feel like most times I’m not sure I can pull off a hat until someone else tells me I look good in it. Giving the gift of a fashionable hat like this one gives the gift of permission to try new styles.

Marc Jacobs Fragrance– $54: If a friend of yours hasn’t picked a statement scent, give her this Marc Jacobs perfume. I love the scent and she probably will to. Plus, the bottle is uber cute!
