To get in the holiday spirit, my fashion board decided to do a gift exchange for our December meeting. When I first heard this news, I was super excited to go shopping for my buddy—until I realized there was a budget. I absolutely love buying gifts, so I almost always overspend on my friends, but I took the budget as a personal challenge. Of course the first stop on my gift hunt was the BP. department. It was a complete success: I was actually able to get a couple of things for my buddy and still stay within our fifteen dollar limit (I’m seriously so proud of myself). Whether you have to work within a gift exchange budget, have a bunch of friends to buy for, or are simply low on cash, here are my holiday picks to stretch your dollar further!
SOCKS | BEANIE | SCARF | ‘HEY GIRL’ JOURNAL
Socks, hats, scarves, oh my! These gifts are perfect for the girl that spends the majority of her winter next to the ski lodge’s fireplace. While she’s sipping hot cocoa, she might as well spend a little quality time with Ryan Gosling (he’s beautiful).
LIPSTICK | COSMETICS CASE | NAIL POLISH | EYESHADOW BRUSH
We all have that one friend that is constantly on YouTube watching beauty tutorials. Fishtail braids, winged liner, ombre nails—you name it, she’s tried it (and maybe even mastered it). This girl is what I like to call my beauty babe. She’ll appreciate any one of these gifts. If you have a little extra money, I think it would be super cute to pack the cosmetics case with a bunch of makeup goodies to create a personalized beauty kit.
TECH GLOVES | iPHONE WRISTLET | iPHONE CASE |POMPOM EARBUDS
So you know that girl that walked into a pole and got a black eye because she wouldn’t look up from her phone? These tech-friendly picks are for her. The fox iPhone case and the Ear Poms would be a supercute pairing.
