December 1st is tomorrow?!?! OK…how did that happen??? If you couldn’t tell, this is around the time I begin to freak out. That’s because it finally dawns on me; “oh crap, I need to buy my Christmas gifts!” Even though I love to plan (cuz I’m a geek), I ALWAYS procrastinate when shopping for Christmas gifts. I think that’s because December has a way of creeping up on me. (is that an everybody problem?) Of course it takes me time to figure out what I want to buy everybody, so when it’s all said and done I generally have a week to buy the gifts. Not an ideal scenario when shopping for people you actually like 😋. The good thing is that I have been able to stockpile a list of stores where I can find really great gifts for really great value. These are the tried and true places where I know I can get gifts everyone will love. So if you’re like me; a last minute, value seeking, personal gift giver, then this is the holiday gift guide for you! These are all gifts that I would want myself, own myself or have gifted in the past. The majority of the gifts are under $30 and all have a reason for being on this list. Happy Holiday shopping!
Anthropologie Monogram Mugs ($10) // This is a classic gift and one that I think everyone will love. This new design is so beautiful I’m tempted to buy one for myself.
Anthropologie Monogram Jewelry Box ($14) // Most of us don’t think we need a trinket box until we need one. Gifting one with a monogram lends a more personal touch
Capri Blue Zodiac Candle ($14) // These candles have a cult following because they smell INCREDIBLE. The zodiac symbol on the lid adds a more personal touch.
P.F. Candle Co. Amber Jar Soy Candle ($20) // This scent is one of my personal favorites so I had to include it. But they also make other great scents too.

Mini Waffle Maker ($17) // Who doesn’t love waffles? And miniature things?
