Can you believe we’re only a few short weeks away from Christmas? I’m getting more excited every day for heading home to Stuart for a few days with my husband. He will get to experience a Mitchell Christmas, which I love so much! I’m entirely too excited to experience Christmas day with him for the first time and to make out own little family traditions.

Anyway, I’ve put together a few cheap gift ideas for the amazing ladies in your life! Whether you’re in need of a small gift for a co-worker, or you’re on a budget and want to get something sweet for a friend, or you just can’t think of anything for your girlfriend, check out these ideas below.

For the one who loves cooking

  • Recipe Book

A classic gift, but one your cooking friend will love, nonetheless! You can grab one of these for around $10-20 depending on the store. One of my favorites for this year is the Cravings Cookbook by Chrissy Teigen, which you can find at TJ Maxx for only $14.99 or have it delivered to you by Amazon for $17.99!

  • Recipe Box

Guys, this recipe box is my new favorite thing. Do yourself a favor, and go grab one of these at TJ Maxx for $9.99 for a friend or even for yourself. I’ve never been so excited to sit down and write recipes for hours. It is so perfectly cute and comes with the best laid-out recipe cards I’ve seen.

For the one who loves relaxing

  • Bath Bombs

I was given two bath bombs as a gift at my lingerie shower and was so appreciative of this gift that I would have never thought to ask for! You can find a huge selection of beautiful items from LUSH and you can even buy them online! A majority of the items range from $5 to $9, so you can easily pick out a few cute bombs and stick them in a gift basket for a friend who enjoys relaxing… or maybe for someone who needs to relax!

  • Holiday Candles

I’m not going to lie, I got a tiny bit emotional over the smell of a candle this week. It reminded me of my mom’s favorite Christmas candle, so I bought it on the spot. Smells are such a huge part of the holiday season, so grab your friend a Bath and Body Works candle for between $13 and $15 to help her set the Christmassy mood in her home!

For the one who loves decorating

  • Holiday Accents

One of my favorite gift ideas of the year is holiday accent decor! Maybe it’s because I’m decorating my first home or because my friends are doing the same, but who wouldn’t love a perfect holiday pillow like these two below! Mine came from a small store in Fort Payne, AL, so you may not find that exact one, but my friend found some great ones at TJ Maxx! I’ve found some PERFECT decor items on their website, many for $25 or less.

For the one who loves clothing/accessories

  • Winter gloves

It may be currently 70 degrees in Auburn, but there is still supposed to be a winter sometime, right? Maybe you live farther north than I do, or maybe your friend is going on an exciting trip this winter and will need some stylish, warm gloves! These cute gloves come in burgundy and black and actually have great reviews on Amazon, despite the $8 price tag! It may be worth the shot.

  • Clutch

I absolutely love this Jessica McClintock clutch and it would be the perfect addition to any outfit for a holiday party! Pair it with a sleek black velvet dress and some heels. The gunmetal color is perfect for so many winter events.

For the one who loves homemade goods

  • Christmas tree decor

Now, I know not everyone has a woodshop in their garage, but if you do, take advantage of it! These little Christmas trees were one of my favorite gifts from my brother in law a few years ago. We use them on our piano with some candles for simple and homey Christmas decor. I made the other tree for my parents a couple of years ago and they love it!


For the one who loves to workout

  • Water bottle

You’ve probably seen Hydroflask water bottles everywhere, and the good news is that you can also order them on Amazon! To keep your gift around $25, make sure to get the 18 oz option. My favorite color options are sage, mint, and cobalt (hint, hint, mom).

  • Workout clothing

If your friends love yoga like mine do, check out this super cute open-back workout tank! I have something similar myself, but this one is even better because it can stay open or you can tie it up! It is stylish but also practical. You can find this top available in black and white for about $20 on Amazon!

That’s it for now! What other hobbies would you like to see gift ideas for? Let me know!
