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

With the holidays are just around the corner, now is the time to start looking for that perfect gift. Holiday shopping can be one of the most stressful times of the year, but it doesn't have to be. Help is here and I'm kicking off my gift guide series with my guide to affordable gifts under $30. This is always one of my favorite gift guides to put together because when it comes to gift giving, the amount of money spent doesn't matter as much as the thought that goes into making it meaningful. And you can get a substantial gift for under $30. I chose a range that are fun and practical  which would be suitable for friends, family as well as colleagues and neighbors. As always I've included some personal faves. Do tell me what you would like from here and stay tuned for more gift guides!

Hey Rowena, how you doing? :)

I love this kind of holiday edits where people share ideas for gifts. I love that yours is ground to earth and that there are possibilities for low budgets. Sometimes I see lists for infinite budgets that are too pretty but for a short audience, so yours if full of fantastic and realistic ideas :)

Woow there are many things, I don't know where to look at first! But probably homeware is the thing I like the most since I enjoy interior design so much! Thanks also for adding candles and essences, I think they really help to create a concept in every room. I also liked that rounded vase, I actually have one and it is such a beautiful piece. And can we talk about that retro bluetooth speaker? Dreamy!

Thanks also for sharing stationery and some fashion things like the tote bag, it is so colorful and perfect to add a pop of color to a neutral look!

Excited to check more content like this!
