Today is my birthday! I can't believe another year has already come and gone. Reflecting back on the past year so much has happened. I started a new job, settled into a new city and had many ups and downs while doing so. Even though, life wasn't perfect I learned so much, traveled the country and spent time with loved ones. I am beyond thankful for my loving family, my supportive boyfriend, my great job and my amazing friends.
In my world, it's birthday season. With so many loved ones with birthdays around the corner, I put together a gift guide for under $50. I love getting creative gifts for my friends and family members. So, plan ahead! Giving is always better than receiving.
Free People Pendant ($38)
How cute and trendy is this necklace? I love a great statement piece. Perfect for dressing up an t-shirt or casual dress.
Mani and Pedi Gift Card ($40-49)
Buy your best girl a mani and pedi for her birthday. There is nothing better than a little pampering before a big celebration.
Make-Up Bag or Clutch ($35)
Loving tribal prints right now. This versatile bag is a perfect last-minute gift for anyone on your list.
Decorative Plants ($6)
Plants are always a creative gift. If you like to plan ahead order these petite succulents from Etsy. If not, pick up an mini cactus from Home Depot for $3-4 and plant it in a coffee mug or creative holder. Cheap, cute and unique!
Branded Baseball Cap ($29)
Guys say girls are hard to shop for, but guys are impossible to shop for! I don't think anyone can go wrong with a branded baseball cap from a favorite clothes line or sports team.
Leather phone cases are very sophisticated and a great gift for any guy wanting to add a little style to their daily grind.
Palm Shirt ($18)
My boyfriend is loving palm printed shirts right now. So, I would totally get this for him to add to his collections. But, for any other guy this may be a set outside their comfort zone, which can be a fun gift for someone who wouldn't pick this out for themselves.
Dollar Shave Club ($27 for a three-month trial)
Dollar Shave Club is a subscription box that comes with high-end razors and shaving products. Sign your man up for some pampering.
