2020 Gift Guide: under $50 favorites

I had a few requests for a gift guide on a budget-- and I am ALL for gifts that are thoughtful, creative and won't break the bank!

ALL of these gift guide posts are packed with items I either use and love, have purchased or have on the list for my own people. Enjoy!

1) Raaka Chocolate https://amzn.to/3ejwocO

This chocolate isn't just delicious, it's also beautiful to open and enjoy, so it makes a GREAT stocking stuffer or hostess gift.

2) Smartwool socks

- women: https://amzn.to/35SBIQk

- mens: https://amzn.to/3kWZ2mC

Are there better socks around for the winter, hiking, everyday- you name it?? If you know, you know!

3) The Road Back To You https://amzn.to/3jTIJpl

This book is SUCH a great one if you're new to the Enneagram and want to learn more about how the Enneagram can improve your life in relationships, work, home- and it makes a great gift!

4) Spa in a bottle: https://amzn.to/3jXgINs

If you've never experienced the loveliness of this face toner, you must-- it's beautiful for a friend who could use a little spa-like treat (and it's great for all skin types!)

5) The best face scrub: https://amzn.to/35YiCZo

On the skincare line, this is my forever favorite face scrub I will use over and over again!!

6) The Lazy Genius Way https://amzn.to/3l5WeDq

This was one of my favorite books of 2020, Kendra Adachi truly is a (lazy) genius! I know it would make a great gift for a girlfriend, sister, or a host!

7) Hearth and Home Candles- Target https://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=hearth+and+hand+candles&facetedValue=5y74t

These candles are by far by FAVORITE inexpensive candles (they're also soy wax, instead of parrafin, which I appreciate!).

8) Yeti 30-oz hot or cold tumbler https://amzn.to/3294SK0

I feel like the Yeti feels like SUCH an expensive cup to spend on yourself (as amazing as they are!) but they make a GREAT gift- and they're worth every penny to keep your drink cold OR hot!

9) The Echo Dot https://amzn.to/3jUO0wA

Our family is OBSESSED with our Echo dot. I'm surprised Alexa hasn't quit ;). We love using it for music, grocery/to-do lists and timers as well as Amazon ordering. Such a great gift!

10) The classic Carhart beanie https://amzn.to/35UrSO4

You know I'm all about the cozy. Everyone needs a cozy beanie!

11) The Healthy Mama Meal Planner http://www.healthybalancedmama.com/mealplanner

You knew I was going to say this one, right?? It's still discounted and a GREAT gift for the busy mama friend, sister, or coworker who could use a little meal planning guidance!

And with that... the 2020 gift guide series is complete! I truly hope you've enjoyed this year's gift guide round up! Here's to a healthy, happy holiday season!
