10 Gifts Under $100 for Gals

Not to sound cliché, but it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived, yet Christmas decorations seem to be popping up left and right. Between the lights, music and storefront window displays, retail stores are practically begging us to enter their shops and spend money.

Each year, however, regardless of how early the decorations go up, I find myself scrambling to finish off my holiday shopping in time for Christmas. Rather than race to the finish line this time around, I decided I would get a bit more organized and create a list of awesome gift ideas for girls. When it was all said and done, I found ten items that I’m absolutely obsessed with. So, without further ado, here are my top ten choices for the 2013 holiday season.

Collage 2-1

1. J.Crew Leather Passport Case: $45

Between the cost of airfare and other travel expenses, most people don’t think to buy themselves cute travel accessories like this leather J.Crew passport case. That, my friend, is where you come in. Choose from several colors.

2. The New Black Nail Polish Kit: $22

It’s no secret most girls love beauty products. This nail polish kit is part of Demi Lovato’s new nail line at Ulta. I’m really loving some of the colors!

3. Vintage 35mm Canon AE-1: $85+

Skip the annual debacle over which new tech item reigns supreme by going old school instead. Vintage photography is in, people.

4. Tea Sampling Kit: $6.99

Personally, I’m an English breakfast kind of tea drinker. But just say “Raspberry Earl” or “Egyptian Mint” and I’m there. Sampler packs like these are the best.

5. Bath and Body Works 3-Wick Candles: $20

Candle lovers know that the secret to the perfect candle is quality. Albeit a little pricey, Bath and Body Works 3-wick candles are slow burning, so you’ll get more use out of them. Oh, and they smell amazing. Seriously.

6. Society6 Tote Bag: $22

Society6 has nailed the art of being random. Their collection of tote bags span over 80 pages, so whatever design you’re looking for, they’ll have. (Almost) guaranteed.

7. StickyGram Instagram Photo Magnets: $14.99

For the friend who seems to have everything, I present you your ticket out of shopping hell. Don’t spend hours looking through stores for the perfect gift. Make something fun and personal, like StickyGram’s photo magnets. They’re easy to create and ship for free!

8. Cute Coffee Table Coasters: $8

Coasters for a Christmas present? Sure, why not. These are cute and affordable, and definitely not something the average girl would think to buy for herself.

9. Starbucks Gold Mug: $8.95

Starbucks deserves an award for the holiday items they’ve been putting out lately. This adorable gold mug is only $8.95, or 25% off with a purchase of four. And they’re stackable.

10. Kate Spade Shady Lady Mittens: $68

Finally, if you have a little extra to splurge on someone this year, why not buy these fun Kate Spade mittens? They’re warm, fashionable and scream “winter.” Not to mention the fact that you can never go wrong with a little Kate Spade.
