last minute gift guide - under $25

If y'all are anything like me you're probably broke and you probably just started Christmas shopping this past weekend. I think I got so caught up in the done-with-school-don't-wanna-do-ANYTHING mindset which is actually great until you realize you have stuff to do and presents to buy. SO, if you're struggling to think of gifts and you really don't have a lot of money to spend keep scrollin'. 

Because everyone needs more socks! But ya gotta do it right. American Eagle has AMAZING socks and I know I'd love to get a pair of these in my stocking.

2. decorative candle holder

My sister and I got something like this for my mom a few years ago and she really liked it. I've been obsessed with everything gold and white these past few months so when I saw this I fell in love. I think it'd make the perfect gift for a fellow candle lover!

3. monogrammed (or not) leather keychain

You really can't go wrong with this little dude. You can get it in either black or brown leather, monogram optional. Perfect for the friend who always loses her keys (me).

4. big cozy scarf


I have a huge blanket scarf that I wear almost every single day that I couldn't live without so I know this would be perfect for any college gal trekking through campus on cold snowy days.

5. heat-tech leggings

UNIQLO has a super cool textile technology called heat tech which is basically just super warm coziness. One struggle of wintertime in college is not wanting to sacrifice comfort for warmth. With these, you can have the comfort of leggings while still maintaining warmth. That's one heck of a win win if ya ask me.

6. coffee mug

I think mugs are another one of those gifts people give when they just can't think of anything but it's always really hit or miss. Who wants another tacky christmas mug? Luckily you can't mess up with Anthro mugs.

7. silk scarf

This scarf is a a cute, quirky spin on the choker/bandana trend. I think it'd work for trendy college students and cool moms alike. It isn't exactly under $25 but after all of Loft's sales it will be!

8. NYX soft matte lip cream 

These are perfect for ANY girl who wears even the littlest bit of make up. They are beautiful, matte lip colors that won't dry out your lips. They come in tons of different shades so your bound to find the perfect one for any girl on your list.

9. Candle

Candles are another one of those classic "idk what to get you so I'll just get you this" gifts BUT if done right, they can make a fabulous gift. Again, you really can't go wrong with Anthropologie. They have gorgeous, lovely smelling candles that anyone would love.


Hopefully this has helped you find some ideas about what to get your special friends and family .I hope you have a Merry Christmas and best of luck fighting the crowds last minute shopping, I'll be right there with ya.
