Gifts Under $50: 2019 Edition

Hey y’all! Today I’m excited to share the 2019 edition of my gift guide for Gifts Under $50. When I shared some of my gift guide ideas with y’all on Instagram a few weeks ago, the Under $50 category garnered a lot of interest. I’m not going to go into a full description of each item in this guide. Otherwise this post would be way too long! But I will add occasional commentary for a few things I want to highlight. Also, before I dive into this gift guide, I want to point out that any gifts that we give our loved ones this holiday season are a reflection of the greatest gift of all-God sending His Son Jesus to earth to live the perfect live we could never live and pay the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.

Here are my 2019 top picks for Gifts Under $50! Many of these items are things I personally own, or similar to something I own and love!

Anthropologie Block Initial Necklace

Anthropologie Block Initial Necklace

This suits a variety of personal styles. I’m extremely preppy, and one of my coworker friends is not preppy at all. But we both own and love this necklace!

DaySpring Cross Necklace and Promise Box

DaySpring Cross Necklace
You may have seen this gorgeous sideways cross necklace on my Instagram stories and DaySpring generously sent it to me, and I absolutely love it. It’s currently 30% off with code FRIDAY.

Beautycounter Hand Cream Trio

Beautycounter Hand Cream Trio
These Beautycounter Hand Creams come in limited edition scents, and are the perfect size for throwing in your purse to guard against chapped hands that cold weather brings!

Beautycounter Citrus Mimosa Body Lotion

Beautycounter Travel Companion Gift Set

The Citrus Mimosa body lotion is one of my favorite Beautycounter products. It’s under $30, and would make a great gift for anyone on your list. You can also get a Travel Essentials gift set that includes a travel-sized lotion, along with the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

Beautycounter Eye Shadow Palette

Beautycouter Eye Sparklers Palette

The Beautycounter Holiday 2019 Collection includes two eye shadow palettes: the Starlight Palette and Sparkler Palette. Each of these are under $40, and would make a great gift for any makeup junkie in your life.

Beautycounter Melting Body Balm

Beautycounter Melting Body Balm

This moisturizing balm smells like a tropical vacation, but without any harmful artificial fragrance. It goes on thick, but instantly melts into oil. However, it absorbs very quickly and is non-greasy. I have been putting some on my hands before bed every night. It also won an Allure Best of Beauty Award.

Better Balms Duo

Beautycounter Better Balms Duo

The Better Balms Duo includes two lip balm sticks-an untinted one with an orange-vanilla flavor, and a tinted one with a berry flavor. I especially love how the tinted one provides a super subtle touch of color while moisturizing your lips.


Happy Hand Lettering by Maghon Taylor

Happy Hand Lettering Maghon Taylor
DaySpring sent me this fun how-to hand lettering guide by Maghon Taylor of “All She Wrote Notes” in a PR package a few months ago! It’s also currently 30% off with code FRIDAY, making it under $15!

Lauren James Sweet Tees

Lauren James Sweet Tees

Lauren James Sweet Tees are extremely soft and comfy, and they have some really cute long-sleeved designs this season. This past week I got a “sweet” surprise when I came home to a package from Lauren James that included a couple of these tees. I especially like this adorable “Too Cool for School” popsicle design they sent me. And the other one they sent has this dog design, which would make a great gift for any dog lover in your life. Shop all Lauren James Sweet Tees here.
