Ok, so maybe you're like me and waited last minute to do your shopping and don't want to break the bank with your gift giving this year.  Don't fret, I got you.  This gift guide features nine items all under $25 that the ladies on your list will love.  Merry shopping!
  1. Birchbox Perfect Blowout Collection - How adorable is this haircare kit from Birchbox?  Featuring five best-selling products to achieve that salon worthy blow out and at only $22 any gal would love this, especially one with a DryBar addiction. 
  2. American Atelier Monogram Beauty Box - Love this cute jewelry box, it comes in three colors and you can personalize it with her initial. 
  3. Five Minute Journal - Probably my favorite item from this gift guide, this journal encourages you to focus on the positive at the start and end of each day and is filled with inspirational quotes and happiness tidbits.  
  4. BAN.DO 'But First, Coffee' Thermal Travel Mug - Prefect for the coffee addict on your list...because really who is productive before a cup of jo?
  5. Dogeared Coffee For President Tote - With all the presidential election hum drum swirling about, let's get real about who we should be electing in 2016.  I have so many gal pals who I know would love this!
  6. Vera Bradley Small Zip Cosmetic Bag - It's funny since I moved to Florida I've notice no one has Vera Bradley or knows about the company...maybe it's a northeast thing?  Well regardless, they're missing out.  Their cloth bags and accessories come in so many fun patterns and are superb quality, I especially love this travel cosmetic pouch. 
  7. Juliet & Company Forget Me Knot Earrings - These earrings look way more expensive than they actually are and fit the bill for the perfect understated jewelry gift that will go with everything in her wardrobe.  
  8. Bath & Body Works Marshmallow Fireside Candle - This candle is heaven on earth.  My favorite scent from the Bath & Body Works Holiday collection you will find Marshmallow Fireside burning in my apartment all season long.  
  9. Philosophy Holiday Cookies Trio - Philosophy makes the cutest holiday sets, am I right??  This aromatic trio features a shower gel, body lotion, and decadent lip gloss.  If I am ever stuck on what to get someone, one of these sets is always my go-to option.
If you're still searching for the perfect last minute gift why not go the DIY route?  This video from YouTuber Ingrid Nielsen features an adorable DIY Spa Jar and I love these easy to make gift ideas in Allison Andersen's video here.  Or if you're searching for a present for a new Mom why not plan a prepaid girls night out?  I know most mothers would take any chance to dress up and have some time out with friends.  Another favorite is a painted pottery piece from a paint your own pottery location ala, You Do The Dishes in Tampa.  Whether you paint an ornament, vase, or mug, a hand crafted item always add a nice personal touch.  

I hope you enjoyed this gift guide and may your holiday shopping be stress free!  This year I will be spending Christmas with my family in Upstate NY.  I just landed last night and can't wait to relax and spend quality time with my family and friends who I've missed dearly.  Blog content will be light the next week or so as I take a break to enjoy the holidays, but I have lots of fun and exciting things in store for the new year!  Thank you for all your support and I hope you have an absolutely darling holiday and are able to spend it with those you love.  Merry Christmas everyone!!

xoxo Nicole
