Around the holidays, it can seem like everybody’s balling out while your bank account dwindles. You want to get thoughtful and beautiful gifts for everybody you love, but the perfect thing is just over budget. The trick is to find the items that look expensive, feel personal, and are vetted so that quality is accounted for, so we consulted an expert for help.
“My readers love a good deal,” Corrine Stokoe of Mint Arrow says. Corrine is all about finding deals that don’t look like deals, and her 127,000 Instagram followers come to her for the best ones around. This 15-piece gift guide is no exception, as the most expensive item doesn’t exceed $160. “All of the items on this list are within a reasonable price point.”
Scroll for the gifts to give when you want the look and feel of a splurge without emptying your wallet. “These are things that I personally own and can speak to, and really I think they work for any woman,” says Corrine. “It’s a list for all women.”
Why she chose it: “The fur lined slipper is something I live in all winter long. This is one of those deal pieces. It’s just like a full-priced Ugg slipper but costs way less, so I love that.”
Why she chose it: “If I was to treat myself to something for the holidays, this is what I would pick. Home decor things like that are hard for me to buy for myself during the rest of the year since there’s always something else to think about, but during the holidays when we’re hosting people it makes your house feel more festive.” Aside from that, she’d like to treat herself to a nap (and we all relate).
Why she chose it: “This is such a cute coffee table book. It’s is a great gift for someone who seems like they already have everything.”
Why she chose it: “This tote bag is at a really good price point, it’s $60 but it looks like a high-end bag. It’s a great find if you’re trying to buy something that looks like it’s a nice gift but not go crazy expensive.”
Why she chose it: “I use this eyeliner and really love it. It just lasts all day and is really good.”
Why she chose it: “These have crazy high ratings and have been really popular through this holiday season. These would be such a great gift for my mom or my sister, they would be thrilled.”
Why she chose it: “I have this and it’s a great layering piece. I love how Free People does a lot of these tunic tops. In the winter I’m always looking for a tunic top to wear with leggings and boots because that’s my winter uniform.”
Why she chose it: “The Stila lip liner is something I use personally and really recommend.”
Why she chose it: “These gloves are such a great price for cashmere!”
Why she chose it: “If you haven't tried a Slip silk pillowcase yet, you're in for a treeat. These pillowcases are made to prevent wrinkles and bedhead, and they're my cherry on top of climbing into bed after a long day.”
Why she chose it: “Because baby pink is practically a neutral in my book, and these sneakers are so comfy.”
Why she chose it: “This is a super cute way to stay warm in winter weather.”
Why she chose it: “Love the affordability factor of these classic sunnies. Take them with you on a warm weather getaway, or shield your eyes from the harsh winter rays.”
Why she chose it: “Every girl needs a little help to hide a bad hair day, and this beanie is the perfect winter companion to stretch out your no hair washing streak one more day!”
