15 Holiday Gifts under $50 for your BESTIE!

It’s that wonderful time of the year where we get to shower our besties with love and a gift!! I’m not a huge fan of gifts that I can’t really use. I’m relatively practical, and so I’ve always cared for the most useful gifts! I’m breaking it down to 15 ideas that are under $50! Most of these are around the $10-$30 range, so I’m sure you’ll find something in here for your bestest gal pal! 

Best Friend Holiday Gift Guid

Hair Tie Bracelet // I absolutely love these things. I bought mine probably about 6 months ago, and I think I wear it every single day! This way it looks like I have a bracelet on, but it’s actually holding my hair tie! Another plus is that it doesn’t leave a giant hair tie indention in my wrist!! 

Blanket or Throw // Let’s be real. Who couldn’t use more amazing blankets in their life! They are always the perfect addition to a bedroom or for the couch! And in my opinion, always makes any room look much cozier!

Phone Charger // With constantly checking our phones and using snapchat, our phone batteries are getting used more than ever! It’s always nice to have a cute, chic charger in my purse or diaper bag! 

Gift Cards // Well this one is boring but one I love the most probably! I can get exactly what I want from a gift card! Some of the best ones I’ve gotten are from Target, Old Navy, Gap, Starbucks, and the best of all Amazon! 

Purse or Handbag // This one can be a great gift but it is more personal! You ideally want to know what their tastes are like if you’re going to give someone a handbag! 

OPI Nail Set // Nail polish is always a winner in my book! Either get them a mini set of nail polishes, or perhaps a gift card to their favorite salon for a mani/pedi!! 

Planner // Have a Type A friend who is obsessed with organizing? Planners make amazing gifts given it’s the end of the year! Check out my planner guide here if you need assistance in picking one! 

Scarf // Clothes can be tough gifts sometimes. Guessing sizes and colors of what one might like can be agonizing unless you know exactly what they are looking for in their wardrobe! I love gifting scarves for this reason! Takes all that guess work out and makes for an amazing present in winter!

Finger Strap // I’m sure you’re confused about this one, but do you have a giant phone? It’s basically the size of a tablet right? I sometimes call my iPhone 7 Plus a “phablet” because it’s so giant! I love everything about it (hello amazing camera!) except the fact that I just cannot get my fingers across the screen sometimes without using two hands! And that can get plain inconvenient at times! Enter the finger strap! Put it on the back of your phone and it’ll change your life forever. Trust me on this one guys. Gift it. Get yourself one. Thank me later. I highly recommend this one, or this one

Necklace with Kids’ Names // Have a bestie that’s a mama? I guarantee you’ll make her one happy lady if you gave her a personalized necklace with her children’s names on it!

Facial Products // I love getting things like a nail polish, face masks, or anything that’s going to make feel like I’m in a spa! We love to feel pampered, and sometimes giving someone a small product to put them in zen mode is really the ticket!

Earrings // Jewelry. Yes, yes, and more yes! I highly recommend studs since that is something most women love! It’s simple and understated! It’s the perfect gift! Or perhaps you know she’s been eyeing a statement necklace, or a bracelet! Adorn her with some classic jewelry and she’s bound to be grateful!

Slippers// A no brainer here! Who doesn’t love slipping their feet into soft, cozy slippers when it’s chilly outside! 

Water bottle // I’ve noticed I drink a lot more water if it’s in a water bottle that I like! Get her something that you know she’ll refill time and time again to stay hydrated!

Phone Case // Another practical one I know! But seriously, I have friends who just walk around with their naked phones. I nearly have a heart attack and just gasp at the fact that they could do such a heinous thing! HA. No but seriously. Protect those beloved phones…get her a case!! 


Are you ready for the holiday season?? Did you already buy your girlfriends’ their goodies?? Have any suggestions that you know are winners?? Leave them in the comments! 

Love, Alfa

    I always buy my bestie a purse. It’s kind of a thing now because she really and truly loves the ugly ducklings. My mission every year is to find her the most obnoxious handbag on the planet. Love this list! Thank you!
