Whether you need affordable gifts for your co-workers, stocking stuffers, or some unique ideas, this final gift guide of the season has you covered. Create a sustainability starter kit, gift a fun planner for the new year or give a remote Tarot reading to help the recipient kick off 2020 in the best way.

Stocking Stuffers and Holiday Gifts under $50

One. SET of Coffee OR Tea Mugs

Pair a nice set of mugs or a single monogrammed mug like this one, with some of their favorite coffee or tea. For a co-worker a travel mug is a great gift too.

two. reusable flatware

This compact, reusable travel flatware set is made from 100% recyclable and sustainable thermoplastic that’s manufactured using renewable resources. One set can replace up to 250 disposable cutlery sets per year! The perfect stocking stuffer or combine the set with other items in the guide to create a sustainability starter set.

three. clean beauty travel set

You can’t beat the price (just $19!) for this clean beauty trio from Biossance. Including a hydrating cream, exfoliating mask and face mist with hyaluronic acid it’s ideal for travel. Use code JESS20 for 20% off your Biossance order.

four. non-toxic nail polish

One of my favorite nail polish brands, Zoya is vegan, non-toxic and cruelty-free. Ella + Milla is another really good non-toxic nail polish brand certified cruelty free and lots of pretty colors.

five. swedish dishcloths

Reusable and biodegradable, swedish dishcloths are a super eco-friendly alternative to paper towels. They’re the equivalent to about 17 rolls of traditional paper towels and you can compost them when you’re finished. There’s tons of cute prints from this shop on Amazon.

six, seven and eight. 2020 planners and calendars

A great way to kick off the 2020, a stylish planner, desktop or wall calendar is such a nice gift, especially for anyone that still loves to have the ability to write out their week on paper, this one has lots of space for notes.

nine. missoma mini hoops (25% off their site right now w/ code VIP25)

These mini hoops end up under $50 after Missoma’s Black Friday discount (VIP25 for 25% off). I also got this gold round pendant (engraving is free) for a new mom with her baby’s name on the front and birthdate on the back.

ten. women’s march puzzle

For your fellow feminists, this Women’s March puzzle is made from recycled cardboard and vegetable dyed inks.

eleven. hydro flask

A great everyday water bottle that’ll have any recipient skipping the plastic. It comes in several several colors and keeps beverages hot or cold. It’s also BPA and phthalate free.

twelve. reusable glass straws

Ditch plastic straws forever with these reusable glass straws that come with a travel pouch and cleaning brush. This set from Amazon is under $10.

thirteen. remote tarot card reading (use code JESSMAGIC for $10 off)

This is always one of my favorite unique gifts to give. Janine gives really incredible remote readings, and her holiday offering also comes with a clear quartz crystal and an intention setting ritual. Perfect way to kick of 2020 (use code JESSMAGIC for $10 off).

fourteen. winter lip kit

This gift was a HUGE hit last year and I’m so glad it’s back. It’s an incredible value (you save $24 on the pair), and the combo is a lifesaver for dry, cracked lips. Kari Gran Peppermint Lip Whip is one of my all time favorite products, combined with the French Girl Organics Lip Polish it’s the perfect combo for surviving winter.

fifteen. beeswax wrap

A sustainable and natural alternative to plastic wrap, beeswax wrap is washable, reusable and compostable. It comes in several prints and makes a great holiday gift.

    Your calendar suggestion reminded me to put this one below on my Christmas list. It’s made by an artist in the Midwest, and she has so many great prints too!

    Are the prints for #5 from the Amazon shop? Maybe they’re just sold out now because I don’t see them there
