Holiday Gift Guide Under $50

Hello sweet friends and happy Tuesday!!! 

Okay, this week is going to the week of the ultimate gift guides!!  I know a lot of you like to finish your shopping early so I've decided to fill the next few days with gift guides that will hopefully help you finish up shopping for everyone on your list. 

And just so you know, my gift guides aren't huge and they don't include a TON of things, but everything that is included on these guides are items that I think your friends and family would genuinely enjoy receiving and things that they could actually use. 

That being said, today's gift guide is all about gifts under $50!  I tried my best to include something for everyone on your list with the exclusion of the kiddos and that's only because I'm working on that gift guide for tomorrow.  There will be quite a few great gifts for them under $50!

I now own four different Nordstrom at home brand throws so I can say without a doubt that I HIGHLY recommend these for gift giving.  They are not only soft and gorgeous, but they also wash and dry extremely well. 

This is the brand diffuser that we have in every room of our home, and it's not only super affordable, but it works the best.  And trust me, I tried about four other diffusers before getting this brand.  I have never used this brand of oils, but judging by the reviews, they must be pretty awesome!  So if you are looking for an all in one set to gift someone, I think this one is great.  If you want to buy the diffuser and oils separate, this is the exact diffuser that we have and this is my favorite set of oils by the brand that we use and love. 

You guys, I can't tell you all how excited I am that Victoria's Secret is back with their sleep, sport, and swimsuit apparel!!!  I have missed their stuff so much and I was so bummed when they took a break from creating anything new last year.  Anyway, they're back and their new sleep section is so good and it's all currently 40% off right now!  So along with this adorable plaid set, I am also ordering this cozy wide leg lounge set asap! 

This tray is not only perfect for helping any man get organized, but it's also very aesthetically pleasing to look at.  And I just love that it has a docking station for his phone!

This is one of the prettiest cocktail shaker sets that I've ever seen and the reviews are SO good!  This would make the perfect gift with these farm stand cocktail mixers for the cocktail lover on your list. 

This is one of those gifts that you cannot go wrong with and I don't know anyone who doesn't LOVE this scent.  Not to mention, it's also a beautiful candle, plus, the glass is perfect to save and use after the candle is burnt for a makeup brush holder or maybe even a small vase for flowers. 

Two sets of these glasses are currently on their way to me!  I am planning on keeping one for myself (in my defense, my birthday is Friday and we need some new glasses) and the other I'm planning on gifting.  These glasses look very similar to the much pricier Anthropologie glasses and these are dishwasher safe! 

I purchased this jade eye roller last year and absolutely love it so I know this set has to be amazing.  You just can't beat the price for all three pieces. 

So we are biting the bullet and getting Carson a phone for Christmas and of course he also has earbuds to go with the phone on his list.  I asked around and also did a little research, and these seem to be just as good if not better than the Apple brand...as I'm sure you can imagine, these are WAY cheaper! 

I am not sure if you guys remember, but this is the popcorn set that I ranted and raved about all last year.  It is hands down the most delicious popcorn ever and the seasonings are to die for!  This is the two box set, which is the better deal.  If you just wanted one set to gift, they also have this one as well.  This would the perfect gift to give to the homebody or the movie lover, and if you wanted to toss in something a little extra, then get them this $15 popcorn popper collapsable bowl.  We have this one and we love it!

Serena And Lily 25% Off EVERYTHING!

Hello friends and happy Friday! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!  We had a really laid back Thanksgiving here with just the four of us since we had already celebrated with family a couple of weeks ago.  I was able to relax most of the day yesterday and I was also able to get an early start on my online shopping for all the best Black Friday deals.  Make sure you check out my post here if you missed it, as I've added a few more really good sales! 

I wanted to pop in real quick today and share our new Pescadero Tiered Chandelier from Serena and Lily.  Todd actually just put it up last night and I am so obsessed with it that I had to show you guys a few pictures I snapped this morning. 

I wanted to mention this because right now Serena and Lily is having their biggest sale of the year, offering 25% off every single thing online!  Make sure you use the code THANKFUL at checkout to save! 

And don't let these cute faces below fool you...they only sat like this for about ten seconds and they were off making messes :) 

Also, the Birchwood Pillow Cover (which is already marked down) and Priano Crib Sheet that we have in baby girl's new nursery are both from Serena and Lily, and part of the sale!  Their crib sheets are THE BEST, and they wash and dry so well. 

This is seriously one of those sales that you do not want to miss out on, and there are so many amazing new pieces!  I mean, 8, 9, and 10 would all three make great Christmas gifts. 

One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven
Eight // Nine // Ten // Eleven // Twelve // Thirteen

Happy shopping!!  I hope you all knock out some of your holiday shopping and snag some great deals today!

Best of Cyber Monday & Black Friday Sales

It seems like every single year Black Friday starts earlier and earlier, but I'm not complaining at all! We are having a laid back Thanksgiving at home so I'm excited to be able to start shopping some of the best sales right now. 

*Also, this post will be updated several times from now until Monday, December 2nd so make sure you check back often as I'll be adding more Black Friday sales as they start! 

 20% off all orders $150+ and 15% off of all orders no matter what amount you spend. 
Minted has started their Black Friday Sale so now is the perfect time to go ahead and order your Christmas cards!  I have been ordering our cards from Minted for the last five years, and I stand by the fact that they have the most beautiful and best quality cards around! 

Fleece sherpa runs tts, and for sizing reference I am wearing it in the size small.

Pullover runs tts, and for reference I am wearing it in the size small. 

Sweater runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

This is the coziest fleece you will ever put on, and you can not beat the black Friday sale price!! This fleece would make awesome gift, and if you wanted to add something extra with it, these wool socks  and this body butter would be awesome! (Both the socks and body butter are part of the black Friday deals as well) 

Last year I officially switched over from my Lululemon leggings, to Core 10 leggings. I am telling you guys these are not only half the price (even when they aren't part of the Black Friday Sale) but they are better quality and for me a better fit.  And right now you can build your own Core 10 leggings for $28!!!! For those wondering I either choose the high-waist, short length, size small or I go with the cross waist, short length, and size small. 

You guys may have seen me in this coat the other day on my stories, and let me just tell you it's the warmest puffer coat ever! Todd has the mens version in the navy (it's also on major sale) and loves it so much!! 

This is the tv that Todd and I have in our bedroom, and I can honestly say, it's the best tv that we have in our house.  The picture quality is the best, it's the easiest to work with as far as the apps we use, and it has never had one problem!  And the sale prices on these tv's cannot be beat right now!  This is probably the only time you'll be able to snag a 55 inch smart tv for under $400! 

You guys know how much I love my Breville Vertuo machine, well it's on MAJOR sale right now! Normally, this machine is $249, but right now it's marked down to $124!  This would make an awesome Christmas gift for someone special on your list (or maybe for yourself:).

If you have pets or kids this will be the best investment you will make this year...ha!  I know I talk about this vacuum all the time, but it really is that good and right now it's over $100 off for Black Friday! 

This is Serena and Lily's biggest sale they have all year long.  You can save 25% off everything with the code THANKFUL.  Now is the perfect time to stock up on sheets, towels, and maybe even new bedding.  I love their crib sheets and these hooded towels would also make a great gift. 

 40% off your entire purchase...use the code BESTWEEK at checkout! 

There are so many gorgeous things that I want right now at Loft, but I've narrowed it down to my top 5 must-haves below.

H&M Try-On Haul + Baby, Kids, and Home Haul

Okay y'all, I'm not sure what rock I was hiding under or why it took me so long to finally jump on the H&M train, but either way, I placed my first big order and I can promise you it won't be my last!! 

Before I start, this post is in no way shape or form sponsored, you guys had shared an interest in an H&M try-on haul and I had been dying to try a few of their pieces that I'd seen online and loved. Once I saw they had an awesome home section along with how precious their baby and kid stuff was I knew it was way past time for me place an order! 

The prices at H&M are SO good and I'm just so excited that I now have another place to shop for cute affordable fashion for myself and the kiddos! 

** I'll be sharing the details on how everything feels, fits, and the quality today on my stories.  I'll also plan on saving them on my highlights just in case you miss them today. 

This sweater is on the thinner side, but it's not itchy or see through at all so it's perfect for those days it's not too cold or for layering.  Sweater runs a little big, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

This top is SO soft...like so soft I want to sleep in it!  It also runs big and I'm wearing it in the xs. 

Once you put this coat on I swear you will not want to take it off.  I am loving the length and the oversized plush pockets, plus, it's the perfect coat for dressing up or down.  It runs a little big, and for reference, I'm wearing it in the xs. 

This dress is so pretty on, not to mention, it's lined and would be stunning for any upcoming holiday parties.  Dress runs tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a size 2. 

This coat is absolutely stunning on, plus, it looks and feels SO much more expensive than it actually is.  For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing it in a size 2. 

These leggings are pretty much a crossover between leggings and tights, but they give great support and they're perfect for layering.  Also, they run tts and I'm wearing a small. 

I could not believe the quality of this dress, especially with the $24 price tag!  It's perfect for the holidays, and it also comes in red and a fun snakeskin pattern.  For sizing reference, it runs big and I'm wearing a size 2. 

This candle not only looks pretty, but it also smells amazing!  And for $17, these would make such a great gift for teachers, for the hostess, or to add in with these cute pajamas and these slippers

Okay, for $4.99 this 16ft wrapping paper is some of the prettiest and thickest paper I've ever seen. And I just adore these simple gold gift tags. 

I can't even handle the cuteness of this set and I'm dying to see our sweet baby girl in it. 

These tights are great quality and super thick, and I was so happy to find a set in these colors for the holidays!

I almost decided not to include these in my haul, but I know that I have the hardest time finding Taylor panties that fit and that she finds comfortable.  These fit both of those bills, so just in case any of you have the same problem with undies I wanted to share these. 

This dress wasn't as soft as I'd hoped.  It was more of a thick jersey knit than a plush sweatshirt material, but I tried it on Taylor and it looked really cute, plus, she said it was comfortable so I decided to keep it. 

Taylor has been wearing these cozy boots non-stop since they arrived, and I must say, they look adorable with all her leggings and dresses.  Plus, they seem to be holding up really well with all of Taylor's rough playing.
