Gift guide season! As I mentioned yesterday, this week is gift guide week. After much deliberation I have decided to make all of this year’s gift guides price-point focused. So there will be four (under $25, under $50, under $100, over $100/luxury) and each guide is… pretty elaborate. I have been working on these guides for a few months now and have put in quite a bit of work to find GOOD STUFF that hopefully is not all over the blogosphere / general internet. In the past I have done really elaborate themed gift guides (and you’re welcome to go back and look at those, they’re still relevant!) but this year I’ve settled on four really in depth guides, organized by price point. My goal is to be helpful, and hopefully share some cool new brands you maybe didn’t already know.
Each guide will have items from small businesses, Black-owned businesses, authors I love… alongside finds from Sephora, Amazon, and Nordstrom and the like. I didn’t want to segregate my guides… I just wanted to show you a bunch of stuff I think you’ll really like. And I also wanted to get these done EARLY so that you can come back to them as you start or finish your shopping, especially with Black Friday! ANYWAY… enjoy the first of my guides… everything in this one is under $25!

31 Fun Gifts For Under $25
I was given these affirmation cards and they make such a difference in my day. I make my coffee, draw a card, and think about whatever it says. Then, I keep the card with me (usually just by my computer) throughout the day to keep focusing on the day’s affirmation. It’s a small but special thing that helps to set the tone for the day. At the totally opposite end of the spectrum, these calling cards are just hilarious and something I know most of my girlfriends would LOVE. Or how about this cute little $16 set of Follain minis!? Or a delicious smelling massage candle.
And I’ve talked so much about these slouchy socks to the point where I feel crazy and evangelical… but they are just… the perfect cozy thing!
Let’s talk beauty. The Luvscrub is one of my favorite purchases from the summer. You can read my full review here. It would be such a nice gift – especially with a fancy shower gel (you know I love the Necessaire Eucalyptus one, it smells LIKE THE SPA). This KOSAS lip balm is my favorite lip balm – it really kicks chapped lips in their tracks and feels so good, too! I like that it’s luxurious but comes in no frills packaging, so you don’t look too high maintenance reaching for it. And of course we all need this three pack of Megababe hand sanitizer!!!
And this Biossance gift set is only $25 (how!?) with two of their most popular products. That lactic acid serum is just… so good. And if you get the Megababe set of 3 hand sanitizers (or anything else on their site), use code CuteGrace15 to get 15% off.
Oh and if I had a dollar for every time someone asks me about the tee and mask I made for Becca’s birthday! They’re from Subliworks. And I think a custom mask (with your face? their pet’s face?) would also make for the perfect holiday gift.
And while I don’t have a lot of great ideas for kiddos (you’re always welcome to check out the “aunt life” section of my Amazon shop for more ideas), Sohp Shop is such a fun (and timely company), with cute hand soaps for kids that have fun surprise treats inside of them… a great way to make hand washing FUN! Love this idea and the price is also right – $12 per soap, or you can buy a few!
