Bringing you my first gift guide of the season today. I’m only doing a few this year and honestly, I am keeping my gift giving light. We are doing some homemade gifts and generally keeping the spending to a minimum (both within our family and for others).

The under $50 range seems to be a popular price point for everyone. Hopefully there’s a few ideas in this one that will work for you. Look out for more gift guides on the blog for the next few weeks.

Here are holiday gifts under $50.

Beauty Gifts Under $50

Saie glowy super gel duo

These glowy super gel highlighters are my holy grail. I’ve turned all my friends on to Glowy Super Gel and they are all just as obsessed as I am. This set also includes a limited edition shade, Warmglow.

A must for the winter months, this lip mask is an exfoliator and mask in one. Great to wear overnight or apply before going out in the elements to protect your lips from getting chapped.

  • These are so fun! Biodegradable eye masks that dissolve in water. I love them in the winter when my skin and undereyes always feel dry.
  • I love Osea products and this has 3 of their best, the body oil, body polish and salt scrub all in one set. A great price too at $32.
  • If you have any travel for the holidays or in general, this is my favorite haircare brand. Super gentle and available for 3 different hair types.

Pistil Ridge Glove

Kelley said her husband gets so much use out of these gloves whether he’s shoveling, stacking wood or cleaning snow off the car. These rugged, yet soft and warm gloves from Pistil would make a perfect gift for a son in law, husband or father.

  • A BIPOC, woman-founded brand, Brightland has incredible oils and vinegars, made in California. I’ve tried both their balsamic and champagne vinegars. They’re delicious in dressings and for cooking. A great gift for anyone on your list who loves to cook.
  • I won’t stop talking about this olive oil because it is incredible. The “sizzle” for cooking and the “drizzle” for dressings are both absolutely delicious and a lovely gift for anyone who loves to cook.
  • We love this woman-owned small business. Their dish towels are amazing with great prints, fabric and functionality. They have fun slogans that would make the perfect gift for all the feminists in your life.

    I had a wall old match striker in the country that was lost and I loved it so much . I just got this but kittens and candles need watching . I am so excited and I’ll be very careful that my candle is covered . It’s so perfect. A little bit of Vermont again . Yea! I used to go to Frog Hollow in Middlebury , VT near the College where they had such beautiful things by local Artists. Such a cute college town . Not like Woodstock but nice and full of life with the College kids . Good memories.
