Happy Friday, and cheers to the weekend ahead! I know I promised you a fun evening holiday tour today, but we’re in the middle of a snowstorm here (it’s just getting started as I’m writing this) and I wanted to capture our exterior covered in snow for the annual tour. My plan is to photograph our festive holiday vignettes tonight, twinkling with lights, and hopefully some snow will have accumulated before then. It’s my favorite! I’ll have that ready to go for you on Monday, so expect a holiday treat. Shifting gears today (yet still holiday related), I wanted to share my favorite gift ideas from Amazon with you! I know we’re nearing Christmas and if you’re looking for items that ship quickly and are sure to please, I hope this helps you finish your list or cross off those you are gifting for. I started off the holiday season strong & productive, and then hit a lull, so I still have plenty of people I need to shop for. As a reminder, you can scroll through my giant annual gift guide here, and I also wanted to let you know- today is the last day to place your Tuesday Made orders for guaranteed Christmas delivery! We’re always happy to add ribbon and a gift note; just drop us a note during checkout. Emmett and I will be packing up your orders this weekend! You know the drill… click through if you’re interested in seeing my quick gift ideas from Amazon. I rounded up ideas under $25 and $50 for this gift guide, so there are some great affordable options packed into this post. I hope it’s helpful!
Let’s dive right in, shall we? First up- 20 of my favorite gift ideas under $20! If I’m being honest, I’d really like to have the majority of these for myself. I told Emmett to shop my guides if he is looking for an inexpensive gift for me. Ha!
Shop my finds by clicking directly on each item below, or use the numbered links at the bottom of the collage…
01: balsamic vinegar // 02: candle snuffer // 03: olive oil soap // 04: glass oil or vinegar bottle // 05: leather tray // 06: horse head bottle opener // 07: salt & pepper mills // 08: hand balm // 09: bourbon vanilla candle // 10: the lost kitchen cookbook // 11: marble salt cellar // 12: embroidered handkerchief // 13: monogrammed luggage tag // 14: jewelry organizer // 15: black cat espresso coffee beans // 16: leather journal // 17: french milled soap // 18: monogrammed hand towels // 19: linen cocktail napkins // 20: measuring spoons
If I had to narrow down my top five from this roundup (for myself), I’d pick the following: the french olive oil soaps (#3), the horse head bottle opener (#6), the hand balm (#8), the leather journal (#16), and the monogrammed towels (#18). Do you have any awesome under $20 gift ideas to share? I’d also love to hear your personal favorites or top picks… just for fun! I went to my first “favorite things” party last week and our budget was $20 and under, so this is another guide that could be useful for those type of holiday events… secret santa, favorite things, etc.
Let’s move onto the $50 and under category. I think these would make great gifts for siblings, parents, close friends, in-laws, etc. I tried to cram a lot of my existing favorites into this one!
01: woodford bitters // 02: enameled cast iron dutch oven // 03: french match strike // 04: car diffuser // 05: waterproof snow boots // 06: scarf // 07: quilt // 08: water glasses // 09: monogrammed stationery set // 10: mortar and pestle // 11: stoneware coffee mugs // 12: box of chocolates // 13: faux fur blanket // 14: round pizza paddle // 15: wood sage & sea salt hand soap // 16: wool plaid blanket // 17: bath soak // 18: memory foam slippers // 19: wine glass // 20: nesting bowls
I’ll narrow down my personal top picks for you again, just because I think it’s fun & interesting to hear what everyone gravitates toward! My top five would include: the French match strike (#3), the car diffuser (#4), the snow boots (#5), the quilt (#7), and the gorgeous glassware (#8). I also popped shopping sliders into this post, so you can swipe through and see prices when you hover.
You can check out all of my Amazon finds here, more gift ideas here, and everything you need for wrapping gifts here. I’ll have my evening holiday tour all ready for you on Monday, so be sure to check back next week!
I’m so happy it’s finally feeling like December here. This snowfall has me excited and in the holiday spirit! Here’s to hoping after packing up Tuesday Made orders this weekend, Emmett & I can get in a few hours of skiing. We’ve been itching to get up in the mountains and do something fun, after a few nonstop weeks of work. What do your weekend plans entail? Yesterday my entryway tile was supposed to be delivered and after four hours of the delivery man trying to push the pallet up our driveway in the snow, they loaded the tile back up and left. I’m not exactly sure if and when I’ll get the tile now, but I probably need to get that sorted at some point this weekend. I’d also like to bake something in the kitchen. Who is up for a recipe post next week?! Have an amazing weekend, friends!
