If your girlfriends are anything like mine, the pressure is off when it comes to holiday gifting. There's this unspoken understanding that we all have parents, inlaws, significant others, the list goes on, who we can sometimes feel obligated to drop a reasonably large amount of cash on at the holidays. Because of this expectation, when it comes to girlfriend gifting, I try to keep it both thoughtful AND affordable. Today I'm sharing 16 gift ideas that will show your BFF that you were thinking of her and won't require you to max out another credit card.

OXO Corkscrew: This thing works magic on wine bottles and will be the perfect upgrade for the $6.99 version she picked up on the Kroger end cap.

Natrogix Bliss Essential Oils: These can be used with or without a diffuser and the set includes a little bit of everything. Perfect for someone new to essential oils and learning what they like. Also, the packaging looks like it should be way more than $25!

Xena Bar Set: This would be so cute on her bar and looks more expensive than $25.

Geode Wine Glasses: Perfectly unique pop of color for her bar cart.

Tea Drops Sampler: These are so cute and come in the more luxurious looking box. They make loose leaf teas without a strainer or diffuser.

Sephora Mask Set: These masks are awesome and each one addresses a different skin concern so she can test all four to find her favorite. These are under $20!

Marble Heart Earrings: Heart earrings are in for the holidays, and I think this marbled pair is so sweet.

"Most Likely to Microwave" Oven Mit: For $10, this makes the cutest gift for that gal in your life who just isn't all that domestic!

Pearl Heart Drop Earrings: Heart earrings. So nice, I had to add them twice.

"Go Y'all" Mittens: These were obviously created by Reese Witherspoon. So cute for your football loving, southern accented bestie.

Jade Roller: These things are all the rage right now and are supposed to be fantastic for improving your skin's moisture absorption when you apply product to your face.

Herbivore Botanicals Hydration Set: Small-batch products, all natural ingredients, never tested on animals, ultra hydrating and under $40!

skyn Iceland Eye Gels: I am not kidding when I say I look like a person who gets 12 hours of sleep every night after I use these.

Madewell Velvet Pajamas: The best pajamas ever, which is why I picked them for the giveaway.

Teddy Coat: This jacket has great reviews, comes in tons of colors and is only $30.

Name Necklace: This is so sweet and personal and mine arrived on my doorstep within seven days of ordering.

One of my besties gifted me this set of velvet pajamas from Madewell last Christmas, and they immediately became my favorite pair (this is coming from a girl with a LOT of pajamas). They're incredibly comfortable while also making you feel chic while you're lounging! That's why I chose this gift from the list to give away to one follower just in time for Christmas morning. To enter, just complete the form below! Winner will be announced on Instagram on December 13.


Please shoot me an email at schickcr@vcu.edu so we can straighten out details on how to get you your prize! Thanks so much to everyone who entered!

Happy gifting!

XX, Clarissa
