Gift Guide – $50 and under

Welcome to my second post of my holiday gift guide series.  The last post had some great gift ideas in the $25 and under price range.  This guide contains ideas in the $50 and under range.  I hope this will give you some inspiration for all the special people you are shopping for this season.

A rose that lasts a year!Venus et Fleur – Mini round  $39- How would you love a rose that can stay beautiful and fragrant without watering or maintaining for a whole YEAR?  Here is the answer!  Venus et Fleur has some gorgeous arrangements and I feel better giving a gift of a flower when I know that it will last longer than a couple of weeks.  There are some really pricey options, but this single rose is beautiful and would look beautiful on any desk or nightstand to enjoy!


Bauble Bar earring setEar Adornment Trio gift set $48 – This boxed earring set from Bauble Bar with three beautiful earrings in a lovely gift box is a great gift for the jewelry lover in your life.  I bought a similar set for myself last year and I am still wearing and loving the earrings.  It’s great quality!

KL Polish Lips and Tips $45 – If you’ve read my post about my favorite nail polishes, then you already know that I LOVE this brand!  The colors are really unique and they just don’t chip!  KL Polish just released a new limited edition boxed set containing 6 bottles of their new nudes polish, which coordinate with lippies, that were created by Kathleen Lights with ColourPOP.  (Kathleen is the creator of KL Polish and a YouTuber with a huge following.)  The set also comes with a free lipstick, which makes it a great value and an awesome gift for someone who loves to do their nails, or is just a beauty junkie in general!  If you are new to the brand, you can join their newsletter and get 10% off your purchase!

tarte blush bazaarTarte Blush Bazaar $44 I bought this as a gift for myself and think it’s a great value.  First, I own a couple of the Amazonian Clay blushes and love the colors and how they perform.  This set comes with 8 blushes and 2 highlighters in a beautiful circle compact packaging.  I LOVE this – the blushes and highlighters are a good size, the packaging is not only beautiful but great for travel and there are a great variety of shades in the set.
