BEST OVERALL GIFTS UNDER $50:
Do you enjoy squinting every time you step outside? Yeah, I don't either. Finding an amazing pair of sunglasses is a necessity, but who wants to break the bank on something you're almost guaranteed to lose or sit on? Not me.
I lovvvee these sunglasses for Amazon; they're my ride or die. I have yet to find a face shape they don't look good on. Not only do I get compliments on them all the time, but they're the perfect glasses for those no-makeup days.
2. Engraved Necklace
Going a little more sentimental, this dainty necklace is absolutely stunning and perfect for any girl. I love how classic it is while still feeling new and fresh; this is definitely a gift someone will keep forever.
3. Puffer Jacket
Okay, YES there are cute puffer jackets under $50!! I am just as happy as you are. Puffer jackets are perfect for fall and winter; they take any outfit from drab to fab, and I am so here for them.
I love the coloring on this one, but if you want, they have it in black as well!
4. Yeti Water Bottle
If you haven't seen yet on my insta, I just got this water bottle, and I love it. For real, I have never found a water bottle this cute.
My Yeti never leaves my side and holds the perfect amount of water (haha, never thought I would say that). I know Hydro Flasks are all the rage; I do have one, but honestly prefer my Yeti so much more!!
5. Bluelight Glasses
If you are looking at a computer all day (or your phone), you NEED blue light glasses.
I'll admit I'm sometimes bad at wearing them, but I try to put them on as often as I can (trying not to think about how harmful it is to look at a screen for so long, haha).
Anyways, blue light glasses are such a good gift to give because everyone needs them. I think universities are starting to recommend people wear them, so it's the perfect gift!!
6. Custom AirPod Case
You will never need to struggle to figure out which AirPods are yours again! If you have AirPods, you know how annoying it is getting them mixed up with other peoples; it happened to me multiple times, and I've also accidentally put someone else's AirPods in my ears (gag).
I love the design of these cases, and you can really customize them to your liking. I think this is an amazing gift to give for any Airpod owner out there!
7. Glossier Lip Gloss
I'm guessing you've heard of Glossier. The beauty company is all the rage.
I've heard multiple people talk about this lipgloss and say how much they loved it, but above all, people get makeup from Glossier to keep the bubblewrap makeup pouch it comes in!
For real, so if this is up your alley or you know of a friend who loves Glossier, this would be a perfect gift!
JEWELRY GIFTS UNDER $50:
8. Hailey Bieber Style Hoop Earrings
Tried and true earrings that I absolutely love; they do not feel cheap whatsoever and make any outfit look put together. I love mine and wear them all the time (so does my little sister).
They're a classic hoop perfect for any girl who wears earrings!
9. Star Stud Earrings
10. Dainty Crystal Hoop Earrings
Elegant, simple, and perfect earrings to wear on an everyday basis!
11. Custom Letter Necklace
Adding a personal touch to a gift is almost always a win-win situation. My little sister gifted me this necklace for my 22nd birthday, and I absolutely love it.
I'm obsessed with the aesthetic. It's so simple with just the right amount of personal touch.
13. Chain Link Necklace
14. Baguette Signet Ring
In my book, simply and dainty is the way to go. I love the little touch of stone in the middle.
The classic baguette signet ring is perfect for any jewelry loving girl!
15. Link Chain Ring
For a second, I thought about keeping this gorgeous ring a secret, but it's too good not to share!!
I think the chain look is so cute and will definitely become a classic after this current "trend run" it's on.
APPAREL & SHOES:
16. Cropped Denim Jacket
Yes, please to a cropped denim jacket!!
H&M has completely flipped 180 and has become one of my favorite stores! Their denim is great quality, and they do trendy pieces well (if you know what I mean).
The cropped look is perfect for flattering your figure and great for layering!
17. Jogger Set
Matching sets are so in right now, which is great for us because they're comfy AND cute!
Missguided has so many affordable options for jogger sets. Definitely a good gift under $50 that any girl would obsess over!
For those people that live in colder climates, you know you can never have enough beanies to keep you warm.
Carhartt is super trendy right now. Love this simple beanie for a gift!
19. Treasure & Bond Joggers
Black joggers... need I say more? Haha. I was honestly trying to imagine someone opening these up and not liking them... couldn't picture it!
Whether they want to wear them out or just keep them for bed, anyone would be happy to receive a pair of joggers!
20. Satin Pajamas
I l.o.v.e a matching pair of pajamas; every birthday, Christmas, etc. I ask for another pair of matching pajamas (I just can't help myself).
I will never be able to describe in full detail how put-together I feel when I wear a matching set of pajamas to bed.
If you have never had a matching set of pajamas, buy (or ask) for a pair and see how different you'll feel when you go to bed!
21. Lululemon Sports Bra
My closet is full (I'm over-exaggerating a bit haha) of Lululemon, it's my go-to athletic clothing brand. I love their leggings, tops, and most importantly for this post, their sports bras!
Unfortunately, Lululemon is hella expensive and I usually only receive a new pair of Lululemons when I ask for them as a present, but they're amazing quality and I love them!
22. Superga Sneakers
Move aside Vans and Keds (if those are even still a thing), Superga is the new hot white shoe right now.
Perfect for any girl on the shorter side (however my little sister is 5'9" and looks amazing in these shoes too). They look great with almost anything from dresses to pants!
Slippers are a must for anyone who wants to be comfy and cozy. I love this pair from Amazon and think they are the perfect color for anyone!
Converse have been around for yearrssss, and they are definitely not going anywhere! I love the look I've seen worn recently and think they are going to be a hit this coming season.
You can dress these classic blacks up and down as much as you please. Also, I apologize because they're actually $55, but they're so good, and didn't want to pass sharing them (these are the only ones that are over $50 in the post)!
HOME & LIFESTYLE:
25. Marble Serving Board
If whoever you are buying for is a lover of hostessing, then a marble serving board is perfect for them. I am sure you've seen the pictures roaming around social media of the charcuterie boards, and I love them.
Honestly, I really don't ever have people over without putting a little something together on my marble serving board, so I think this would be the perfect gift!
27. Customized Planner
My little sister has this planner (I gifted it to her for her birthday), and she absolutely loves it.
First of all, it looks like a designer planner, which I absolutely love. Secondly, it's actually a great planner! I have now given this gift to other people as well - it's truly a crowd favorite!
28. Anthropologie Candle
Anthropologie candles smell amazinnggg, and they're so cute. I buy them just as much for aesthetic purposes as I do for actual candle purposes lol. But they really do smell amazing.
29. Silk Face Mask
"I use my silk face mask. legit would be so upset if I ever lost it. I love how soft it is on your skin while completely blocking out any light. Silk is apparently supposed to kill germs it comes in contact with, so it stays fairly clean, but I make sure to wash it as well!" - Shelby (my little sister who loves her silk face mask lol).
30. Essential Oils Diffuser
Essential oils are a great way to relax while making your room smell amazing. This is such a good gift for the person that just needs to relax sometimes lol.
31. Car Vacuum Cleaner
Okay, hear me out; we all want a nice, clean car, right? So a vacuum cleaner made precisely for your car is a perfect gift!! I don't know if I'm a genius or if this is just a thing and I've lived under a rock, but I even want this!
I'm the type of person who asks for a Dyson for Christmas, so this is completely up my alley, but I really don't see how anyone would complain if they got this gift! A true gifts under $50 idea anyone would love!
33. Silk Scrunchies
Silk hair accessory for the hair product lovers... silk scrunchies are amazing for hair and seem like such a luxury. Scrunchies are definitely back but take it to the next level with these silk versions.
GADGETS & TECH ACCESSORIES:
34. Echo Dot
I love Alexa on the Echo Dot and having on in my living room and my bedroom!
Seriously, Amazon has thought of almost everything; from an amazing speaker to being able to write lists for you, this Echo Dot is the best. Love that I could include something like this in the gifts under $50 gift guide!
35. Tile Bluetooth Tracker
Attention everyone who loses things frequently, you need these in your life! They're trackers that you can put in your wallet, on your keys, literally anywhere.
The tile has an app on your phone that is very user friendly; it shows you the locations of all of your specific tiles. I love using mine!! They've definitely saved my life more than once.
36. Phone Case
Casetify has sooo many option for phone cases that are protective but also look gooood.

I use Olaplex everything for my hair and can not say enough good things about it. Seriously it's unreal.
For any beauty lover, this is the perfect gift under $50 that they will seriously obsess over!

I have had my Revlon airbrush for a few years and love it. The brush gives you the perfect blowout and perfect for anyone who is on the go! One of the best gifts under $50 dollars for sure!!

I use this exact makeup palette almost every day, and I'm obsessed. All the best shades for every skin-tone are in this one palette, and it's perfect for traveling as well!!
