Hi everyone! December is finally here, which means Christmas is near! (Hey, that rhymed.) If you’re absolutely freaking out because you have no idea what to get the special people in your life – stop fretting, ’cause I’m here to help.
I’m going to be posting a few gift guides for you, to help you pick the perfect gift for your pals, parents, significant other, pets, etc. Feel free to request a certain one in the comments, too!
Aaand, my first Gift Guide is… *drum-roll*
Gift Guide for Girls: Under $20
Look, I know you already knew that from the title of this post, but Christmas season brings out this relentless energy and excitement in me, so you’ll just have to learn to love my sporadic drum-rolls and bursts of glee… or at least tolerate them.
I’m posting this guide first, because all through highschool I struggled knowing what to get my girlfriends. It doesn’t help that my only source of income came from a part time, minimum wage job, so I couldn’t splash out and buy my friends fancy cars and jewelry like I do now. (Just kidding. They’re lucky if they get a card.) So, with that in mind, I thought this guide might be of some help to others in the same situation that I was in.

With that being said, let’s jump right into my Christmas Gift Guide!
If your friend enjoys cooking and the occasional cheeky beverage, this may be the perfect option for them. I actually own this book, but I have absolutely zero idea where it is… I bought it when I was living away from home for a few months, but I never got around to using it. Now that it’s back on my radar, I can’t wait to hunt it down and try out some of the recipes for the next time I’m feeling… under the weather… *cough*
I love products from The Body Shop. They always smell so fruity and delicious, I can never get enough. This treat box comes with body butter, shower gel, and a small bath lily (or a loofah) and I think it’s the perfect combination of products for a cute gift for your friend/sister etc.
We all know a girl who loves her fake tan, don’t we? Give it to her in this cute Christmas cracker packaging! Or make her earn her gift by pulling it with you (hey, you might get to keep it for yourself! Isn’t that what Christmas is all about?)
I simply could not scroll past this without adding it to my list. I love how simple it is, yet so adorable. Bonus points if you put your own personal photos of you & the receiver before giving!
How cute are these? I’ve got a fairly extreme bath bomb collection, but it never crossed my mind that I was missing out on gingerbread bath bombs – what a perfect combination for Christmas!
This product from Lush really gets me excited for Christmas! It includes a Father Christmas bath bomb (the Christmas ones are always my favourite!) and a Santa’s Belly shower jelly! (Heh, rhyming again.)
If you’ve got a friend who can’t talk until she’s had her cup of coffee in the morning (or just wants to let strangers on public transport know not to talk to her) this gift may be the perfect thing for that sassy, coffee loving gal pal.
These two lipstick colours are so beautiful, and Christmassy – especially the red one! I’ve never tried a Stila lipstick before so I can’t comment on the quality, but they look lovely to me. Let me know if you have & what you think!
Give your female companion a little ego booster with this gift. And hey, even if they don’t manage to kick ass, at least they have a cute trinket tray from their awesome friend/sister/brother (whoever you are to them!)
Got a friend who struggles to get out of bed in the mornings? Or after a nap? Or when they’re meant to be on their way meeting you? Then these pillow cases may be the perfect gift, passive aggressive gift for them!
I hope you guys enjoyed this Christmas Gift Guide and that it helped you! I had a lot of fun putting it together, and I can’t wait to do another one for you.
Which gift is your favourite?
