Gift Guide : Under $30

Gift Guide, Under $30 Gift Guide, Gifts Under $30

What makes a good gift? I don't think it has anything to do with how much money you spend but rather the thought that goes into it. It should also either be purposeful or delight the recipient in some way. What constitutes a good gift to you?

Those look like some fun picks! I tend to like homemade things or things I can use...one of my favorites is May Designs notebooks!

Emma Henderson said...

Lovely selection - you've nailed it when you say a good gift should delight the recipient x

Lilli said...

Hi Rowena! I do agree with you! I think that is what makes difference in making a gift. I won't spend too much for gifts these holidays, your guide is just perfect for me. That ring is so gorgeous and I do like also the case, also the masks set is very useful..well actually Id love to receive all these items instead to give them!:P Many kisses! xo

Jillian said...

A gift guide under $30...now that's what I'm talking about. I'm into the umbrella idea (I've distributed my fair share of umbrella gifts in year's past). I like the idea of giving something practical because that's the kind of stuff I love to get!

Emmylou said...

I want that skin saver 4 pack.
Great list, Rowena. I agree that it's the thought and not the cost that counts.

Stanislava E. said...

Beautiful picks, Rowena! Usually, my bf and family always tell me what they wish for Christmas, but when I have to decide what to gift to someone I can't ask, it's quite difficult! These are classic gifts! The ring is the item I liked the most! It's so stylish and only $28! Thanks for the ideas! xo

Yay! This proves that a fun gift doesn't have to be expensive.

Oh I LOVE Garance's iPhone cases! In fact I bought one for the iPhone 5 even though I only have the iPhone 4S was planning on buying it but never did, now just going for the 6. I guess now the iPhone case in the box could be a collectors item at some point.

#3 looks like my wedding band and I LOVE it!!! Great gift ideas!! The bento box rocks!! At first it reminded me of a little school supply refrigerator thing I had as a kid in Japan. You could pull it apart and different parts were things like a tape dispenser etc. Japanese things are the cutest!
