Holiday Gift Guide | $15 and Under

Holiday Gift Guide | $15 and Under

I wanted to put this gift guide together for people looking for little gifts and something that won’t break the bank. These are great stocking stuffers, Secret Santa or white elephant gifts, or what I’m using them for, gifts for my friends! We all wanted to stick to a spending budget (as all college students should) so I figured $15 is a good budget to stick with.

Sugarfix Jewelry

I know these ear jackets are on my wishlist this year! They are so cute while also being simple and statement at the same time. Sugarfix at Target has so many cute choices this year, so I think anything from this line is going to be a hit. These tassel ones are super trendy at the moment as well!

Coffee Mugs

Another great item for your friend who loves coffee! You can either get some really cute festive one for Christmas or a monogrammed one that anyone would love! Pair these with their favorite coffee or hot chocolate and this is a complete gift!

Wall Art

I’m someone who is obsessed with decorating my walls since it’s really all I can do in my dorm room. Hobby Lobby has some great options this year, and you can always get these on sale.  You Make Me Happy (which I picked up for myself!) or Believe She Could, So She Did are some great options for anyone.


I love giving books as gifts, as long as I know what type of book to give! The Milk and Vine book is a parody book of Milk and Honey about Vine (RIP). It’s super hilarious and one of my friends and my brother is getting this for Christmas this year! Another great option would be The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck. I know this has been on my reading list for a long time!

Nail Polish

For someone who loves beauty products, a new nail polish would be a great option. Essie and OPI polishes are a little pricier but are worth the investment! Essie Bahama Mama is my favorite holiday and winter shade.


As someone who loves burning candles, I love giving candles as gifts. They are super easy and most people like burning candles, especially during the holidays. Bath and Body Works is a great place to shop for candles and Tis the Season is my favorite holiday candle to burn. Bath and Body Works has so many great options though for anyone your shopping for, and they are always on sale!


These are great little add-ons to other items, as well as just a great practical gift. These cozy ones from Target look super festive! I know that Old Navy also has some great sock options that are cost-effective.


I actually picked up this little white elephant statue to give as a White Elephant gift! If you know your friends favorite animal or something these can be great little gifts. I think it also shows that you put some thought into their gift as well because you pay attention to what they like! Plants would also be a great option.

What are you getting your friends this year?
