It’s that time of year again! The time of year where we dole out holiday gift ideas and take the stress out of shopping for you and your loved ones. You’ve probably already seen our Bench Gift Guide (if not, head there now because you could win a $100 gift card!), but this holiday gift guide is all about her and every gift on this list is under $50 dollars! We’ve got ideas for the woman that likes to smell (damn) good, the woman that loves jewellery, the woman that loves her family, the woman that loves decorating her home and her nails. Check out our holiday gifts for her under $50 below!
Personally, I love receiving home decor as gifts during the holidays because it’s something that I need and love, but hate spending money on! The Vancouver-based Etsy seller, Paper and Bone, sells beautiful hand-painted deer antlers for $50. The antlers are ethically sourced in Alberta and can be hung on their own as a piece of art or even used as a jewellery display. If you like this antler, you’ll also love Paper and Bone’s Gold Ombre Whitetaile Skull Cap and Antlers ($120) and Yarn Wrapped Antler ($50).
2. House of Harlow 1960 Home Fragrance Collection ($45-$52)
A couple of weeks ago, Nicole Richie made her foray into the home category and launched an exclusive 14-piece collection of candles, votives and diffusers all featuring her signature boho prints on Gilt.com. The collection pieces come in three yummy scents: Midnight Moon, Saint James and Winter Kate. It’s never too early to start a foray in candle collecting! Shop the collection here.
3. La Couleur Couture Nail Polishes ($12.99 per bottle)
La Couleur Couture is a new Canadian nail lacquer that makes the perfect stocking stuffer or gift for vegans! The polishes are highly pigmented and are toxic-free, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly & fast drying! Not to mention, they’re super accessible as last minute gift ideas and are available at 750+ Shopper’s Drug Marts across Canada.
4. Nine West Metal Corner Bifold Wallet ($41.25)
There’s nothing like a brand new, clean, sleek wallet to keep all your holiday cash in! This Nine West Metal Corner Bifold Wallet has a metallic interior with 15 card slots, an ID slot, and a rear zip pocket and sleeve. If plain black isn’t your gift-receiver’s thing, The Hudson’s Bay has a ton of wallets on sale right now for under $50 including this adorable Fossil polka-dot zip-around wallet ($36), a mini Coach keychain wallet ($41.25) or this baby blue zip-around wallet by Anne Klein ($41.25). Shop all of the Hudson’s Bay’s wallets here.
For ladies (or gents) that like the be pampered, a WaySpa gift card is the way to go! You can purchase them on WaySpa’s website in any amount from $25-$500 and they can be used at over 2000 spas – from medical and mobile to day and resort – across Canada. On the plus side, WaySpa is having a holiday sale, so all gift cards purchased are 15% off! View all of the spas on WaySpa’s roster here and click here to purchase.
6. Glazed Apple Tin of Treasures ($20)
The Body Shop may actually have some of the best and affordable gift sets around this season! I picked the Glazed Apple Tin of Treasures, because who could resist anything called a ‘Tin of Treasures’? This gift set costs $20, but has a value of $23 and includes a shower gel, body butter, body lotion, body polish and bath lily all in a glazed apple scent. A few of my other favourite gift sets from the Body Shop are their Beauty Advent Calendar ($50 with a value of $129) full of 25 miniature store-favourites, White Musk Gift Set ($20 with a value of $27 and smells delicious!) and the Jolly Lippy Lolly ($20 with a value of $30). If none of these gift sets catch your eye, The Body Shop has a huge selection of gift sets under $50 here.
7. A Customized Smart-Phone Case ($14.99+)
Instead of a typical phone case, why not have one customized? Blacks offers customizable smart-phone cases for iPhone 4/4s/5/5s, Samsung S3/S4/S5 and iPad 2, meaning your lucky gift-receiver’s phone could be donning a photo collage of friends, your personal artwork or even your face! You can get plain shell cases or cases for the extra-clumsy with rubber bumpers. Order your customizable smart-phone case here or browse their other customizable gifts like blankets, mugs, wall art and ornaments.
