Gift Guide $25 & Under

Now that holiday preparation is in full gear I decided to share a few gift guides.  I'm hoping to get them up this week, but it may be over this week and next!  The gifts here are perfect for any lady in your life, and they're appropriate for everyone from your pre-teen niece to your Grandmother.  The items on today's list make great small gifts or stocking stuffers that are sure to please!

Stocking Stuffers $25 & Under
In my opinion Essie makes some of the best nail polish around.  This fun kit gives you 5 mini bottles of polish, 4 solid and 1 glitter, in some of Essie's most popular shades.

This is the tinted version of the Fresh Lip Balm that I talked about in my The Best Lip Balms post.  In addition to moisturizing lips it adds a pretty rose tint that will keeping you looking bright throughout the winter.

This is my absolute favorite stationary!  It's so chic and girly, and it makes writing notes a little more stylish.  I would love to get this in my stocking!

Socks are a must have for the winter because no one likes cold feet!  Make wearing socks even more fun with this pack that has them covered with pretty prints!

This is my absolute favorite perfume; with notes of caramel and vanilla it always smells delicious!  Now you don't have to pick this particular perfume, Sephora has a ton of different rollerballs, but an on the go version of a favorite scents makes for perfect present. 

Knit turban's are the chicest way to keep ears warm in my opinion.  These are especially great for any college girls on your list because they are perfect for walking across campus!

Gem earrings are great for all the holiday parties that will be going on throughout the season.  I recently learned that Forever 21 sells gorgeous ones like these for a fraction of the cost of similar ones from J.Crew and Kate Spade.  These are sure to add a little sparkle to anyone's wardrobe!

My Aunt gave this set to my Mom, sister, and me last year for Christmas and I was hooked!  These are the most luxe hand creams I've ever tried and make your hands so smooth.  The awesome part about this gift is you can give it as a set or break it up into separate presents.
