Holiday Gifts Under $50
holiday 2021


Kicking off this Monday with another gift guide. 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. I’m definitely shopping from this guide! In case you missed it I published my Under $25 Gift Guide here. Look out for more gift guides this week on the blog plus an exclusive code for a 24 hour sale with ABLE (my newsletter subscribers will be the first to know!).

Here are holiday gifts under $50.

Saie Sun Melt Duo

Saie Sun Melt Duo

The BEST bronzer ever. It’s creamy and buildable and gives a gorgeous sun kissed glow. It comes in four shades (I have light bronze). The brush makes it super easy to apply (and it’s a really good makeup brush in general) so this set is the perfect combo. A nice clean beauty gift to brighten up those cold and dark winter days.

Facial Steamer

Facial Steamer

Say hello to your skincare routine’s new BFF. I got this facial steamer last winter and it is an absolute game changer. Amazing for hydrating and softening skin, and clearing pores, making skincare products more effective. Drop essential oils on to the attachment for a soothing spa-like experience. Have a cold? Use some eucalyptus to help clear congestion.

Sherpa Slippers

Sherpa Slippers

These slippers are super cozy and soft. Feels like walking on a cloud, and even better they’re made using polyester recycled from post-consumer plastic which helps keep trash out of landfills.

Merino Wool Socks

Merino Wool Socks

I LIVE in Smartwool socks from now through April. Truly they are the best. Super warm and comfortable, perfect for cold weather and great quality. I love that this pair is a “chic” sock (is that a thing?) with the warmth and quality of Smartwool.

Love & Lemons Cookbook

Love & Lemons Cookbook

For delicious plant-based recipes I absolutely love this cookbook. Every recipe we’ve tried has been so good. We use it for meal inspiration too. You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to love this cookbook.

How fun are these embossed rolling pins? For anyone who loves to bake these would make such a sweet gift. They come in a variety of patterns including some holiday-themed. Just looking at these makes me want to bake cookies.

Farmhouse Pottery Match Striker - Holiday Gifts Under $50

Farmhouse Pottery Match Striker

I bought one of these in the Farmhouse Pottery store on our first visit to Vermont and it’s still one of my favorite purchases. It’s adorable and looks great next to your candles or on the mantle, but it’s also so functional. Handmade in Vermont. It comes with special strike matches too so it’s ready to use!

Follain Candle - Holiday Gifts Under $50

Follain Candle

My number one favorite candle of all time. I gift it all the time, especially for party hosts, housewarming, engagements, etc. It smells incredible but not at all overpowering. It’s 100% non-toxic made with sustainable coconut and soy wax and essential oils. Use JESSANNKIRBY15 for 15% off your first purchase.

Feminist Merch - OVERSEASONED

Feminist Merch – OVERSEASONED

The softest sweatshirts and tees, plus tea towels and baby onesies with feminist sayings from woman-owned brand Overseasoned. I wear my “Root for Women” crewneck sweatshirt all the time, it’s warm and comfy too.

Mermaid Print by Justina Blakeney

Mermaid Print by Justina Blakeney

Justina is so talented and I love everything she does. Her art prints are fun and gorgeous. This would be cute in an office or kid’s room. There’s an incredible collection of affordable prints on her site curated from diverse artists.

L.L. Bean Tote

L.L. Bean Tote

The do-it-all tote from L.L. Bean makes a great gift. It’s so versatile, we use ours for everything from beach to boating, and now it’s Marin’s school bad. Monogram it or add a name, and it comes in several sizes. I love that it has a zip top too.

Fleece Mittens

Fleece Mittens

These cozy fleece mittens will keep hands warm and toasty all winter long. They come in four colors (honestly can’t even pick a favorite) and would be great for cold morning walk. Makes a dog walk in the bitter cold got a little less painful?

    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.
