Gift Guide : Under $30

 Under $30 Gift Guide, Gift Guide, Gift Ideas, Stocking Stuffers, Holiday Gifting

The holiday gifting season is almost upon us and I'm kicking off my holiday gift guide series with some luxe for less picks that prove that you don't have to spend a small fortune for a nice present because after all it's the thought that counts. I definitely veer towards the practical when it comes to gift giving because I personally prefer to receive things that are actually useful but that doesn't mean they can't be fun and practical at the same time. I really enjoy putting these guides together and I hope they will give you all some good gifting ideas.

1. Sugarfina x Pressed Juicery 7-Day Juice Cleanse Gummy Bears  ($23)
Okay this isn't a real cleanse but a fun idea! These all natural green juice bears made with apple, lemon, ginger, and greens contain 20% of your daily Vitamins C & A. I've tried them and they taste delicious!

2. RSVP White Marble Swivel Top Dual Compartment Salt Box  ($26.99)
This elegant and practical salt box would make a lovely addition to any tabletop as it would be convenient use to in the kitchen.

3. Marbled Mouse Pad  ($11.99)
This might be one of the prettiest mouse pads ever!

4. Cheeky Porcelain Mini Bowls  ($15.99)
Super cute and functional! For every purchase, Cheeky will donate 4 meals to people in need in the U.S. through their partnership with Feeding America.

5. Doughnut Bottle Opener  (($18)
Start a conversation and make a statement at the same time with this adorable bottle opener.

6. Sugarfina Mini Martini Shaker & Olive Set  ($24)
This whimsical gift set includes a mini cocktail shaker and olive-inspired, chocolate-covered almonds.

7. Druzy Tassel USB Keychain  ($14)
This travel-friendly trinket features a lightning USB cable hidden inside the tassel for stylish charging on the go.

8. Printed Sunglass Case  ($6.99)
I tend to misplace my glasses cases so I'm always on the lookout for cute ones.

9. Wireless Rose Gold Speaker  ($25)
Compatible with iPhones, Androids, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices, this speaker would make a thoughtful gift.

10. Cinematic Light Box with Letters and LED Light  ($19.99)
A lightbox offers a creative way to decorate and the possibilities are endless.

11. Scratch Off: 99 Ways Happy ($10.85)
This set includes 3 paperback journals entitled ‘DO’, ‘BELIEVE’ and ‘THANK’ filled with quotes, exercises and inspiring ideas as well as interactive scratch-off elements and space for your own thoughts and notes. We could all use a little more happy...

12. Cherry Bombe Cookbook  ($17.99)
This cook book combines a beautiful balance of visual aesthetics with a variety of practical recipes with a global influence that range from healthy to decadent.  Check out my review.

13. Everything Is Gonna Be Ok Thermal Mug  ($14)
For those days when we need a positive affirmation.

14. Boy Smells Petal Scented Candle  ($29)
This candle features a blend of magnolia, night–blooming tuberose, purple geranium, golden amber and exotic musk for a scent which is an intoxicatingly floral and fresh at the same time. I smelled it at a shop last week and I need to go back and get it.
