Still shopping for gifts? I have some awesome and affordable ideas for pretty much everyone in your life: a beauty junkie, a style-obsessed fashion lover, the guy, the homemaker and a book and movie addict.


A beauty lover is probably easiest person to shop for. There are so many fun and beautiful gift sets released during this time of year. I would recommend that you avoid buying things like foundation- unless you know the recipient’s exact shade. Eyeshadow palettes are always a great gift option, as are gift cards to places like Sephora or Ulta. When buying gifts, I love buying beauty products that I know that particular person doesn’t splurge for very often, like a high-end nail polish (Dior polishes are in my opinion about the only high-end polishes worth the price, they have an amazing formula and are very long lasting) or a cheek product like the cult Shimmer Brick from Bobbi Brown.
