Gift Guide to gifts that are... wait for it... actually affordable!

Gift Guide to gifts that are... wait for it... actually affordable!

Hey party people!

I know it’s getting late in the year for gift guides but hear me out. I have seen so many gift guides and all of them had gifts that I would never be buying or be able to afford if I spent that much on everyone on my list! $200 earrings are nice, but who can spend $200 on every person PLUS get everything for their kids? Not this girl. One had a pair of tennis shoes that are $550 and I literally laughed out loud. Good for you if you spend $550 on a mom or sister for Christmas, but I can’t relate. I figured there have GOT to be others out there like me, so I put together a list of places people like to get nice gifts but all with things that are completely affordable. Madewell, Free People, Anthropologie, and some small businesses I LOVE. Take a look!

Ps. Most, if not all, of these places have free shipping and/or last minute shipping options to get here before Christmas.
