Gift Guide for the 20-Something Under $50


 Some of the best gifts I think you can give or receive are the ones you get use out of time and time again. I love gifting items I know the recipient will love and use! That was my inspiration for this next gift guide: gifts for the 20-something under $50. 

Whether you're looking for a gift for someone or trying to think of a few ideas when asked what's on your list, this roundup cultivates some of my favorite and frequently used items or (hint, hint Mom if you are reading) things I know I would use often. From eye patches to an Apple Watch band, there are quite a few ideas at varying price points under $50.

Here's my thought behind each!

Towel Hair Wrap: I wrap my hair with a towel anytime I wash it, and having a designated wrap to use that isn't too heavy or falling off would be a little luxury. I love my Weezie towel and robe and think the quality is sublime. Plus you can even personalize it — such a thoughtful gift!

Phone Case: Personalized phone cases are so fun and always make your phone easily identifiable. The price of this shadow monogram style can't be beat! This is the case I've had on my phone for almost two years and love.

Eye Patches: A great gift for the girl that has it all. Who doesn't love some refreshing eye patches, especially on early mornings? The reviews on these are glowing!

Stationery: It's no secret I love to send snail mail, and having darling stationery makes it even more fun. This gingham set is a personal favorite. Use code LETSGETPREPPY10 for 10% off.

Cooling and Brightening Eye Balm Stick: Know a girl on the go? This cooling and brightening eye balm stick has been a constant in my tote and purse since I received it as a gift a few years ago. It lasts forever and is the perfect midday pick-me-up to brighten your undereye. 

Airpod Key Chain: I'm constantly switching my Airpods from my belt bag to work tote to purse. I love the idea of having a case connected to my key chain so they never get left behind. This pretty leather one can be personalized too!

Jewelry Travel Case: Whenever I'm going on trips, jewelry is always one of the last thing I think about packing. I usually just throw whatever I'm taking in a plastic bag in my tote, which definitely isn't the safest way to transport some of my favorite pieces. These compact travel cases are a great size and come in several colors.

Moroccan Oil Treatment: I've used Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner for years and am always impressed with the wonders they do for my hair. This treatment is an easy way to elevate any haircare routine right at home.

Charging Dock: I've had my eyes on one of these since seeing them at a few of my friends' apartments over the past few months. Goodbye, a gazillion cords! 

Gold Rings: Admittedly I don't really wear rings, but this dainty set caught my eye with its simplicity and elegance. Such a great starter set for someone looking to try them out or grow their collection with some basics.

Leather Card Case: Similar to my Airpods, I have a few cards that frequently move between bags and purses, and sometimes I don't want my big wallet taking up space. I just ordered a card case so I can more easily move cards from bag to bag and not worry about losing any! Do you know someone who is constantly changing bags too?

Toothbrush Holder: Another easy idea for the girl who has it all and a way to elevate any space. I have this glass and woven toothbrush holder and like the way it looks compared to a plastic holder. It's super easy to clean too!

Apple Watch Band: I have used this watch band for years and always receive compliments. It looks much more chic than the athletic band the watch comes with, in my opinion, and looks nice with a bracelet stack.

Sunglasses: These are my favorite sunglasses that are a little more of a statement than my everyday pair. The cat eye is stylish and fun, and the frames are larger. I like that the tortoiseshell goes well with any outfit.

MyAgenda: Know someone looking to start the year off organized and ahead? A MyAgenda may be the perfect gift. I've used this style agenda for years and can't rave enough about the layout and compact size.

Gold Hoops: Can you ever have too many pairs of hoops? I love the simple yet classic design of this style and would definitely get countless wears out of them.

Teletie Claw Clip: I only use the Teleties hairties these days, and I've been meaning to try out their new claw clip style. The hairties are incredibly comfortable to wear all day long and don't damage my hair. I imagine the claw clip is the same!

Keurig: As of writing this post, this Keurig is just under $50! A perfect gift for a girl who is soon moving into her first apartment or for the coffee addict in your life. It comes in several colors, but the blush pink would definitely end up on my countertop.

Pleated Sleeve Sweatshirt: Know someone who likes to be comfy, but always trying to do so fashionably? I recently purchased this pleated sleeve sweatshirt and love it's unique and pretty design. It's comfy to wear with leggings, but could easily be thrown on with jeans and sneakers for a cute on-the-go look. Comes in multiple colors and is a great price! I sized up to the medium for a looser fit.


Happy shopping!
