I can hardly believe that we are halfway through November! Like it or not, the holiday season is rapidly approaching. With my current schedule permitting little time for actual visits to my favorite local shops, I turned to the trusty internet for the perfect purchases. Here are a few of my favorite female finds, all for under $50!
1. Shemergency Survival Kit, $25 from ShopBop
The Shemergency Survival Kit is fast fix for beauty, fashion, and personal care on the-go. The kit includes folding brush with mirror, hairspray, clear elastics, earring backs, lotion, nail clippers, emery board, clear nail polish and polish remover, shoe shine wipes, stain remover, static remover, breath freshener, lip balm, floss, pain reliever, deodorant and sanitizing towelettes, tampon, bandages, blotting tissues, and single-use lipstick. Packaged in 4″ x 6″ x 1.5″ pouch. This will make a great gift for your jet-setting girlfriends.
2. e.l.f. Essentials Nail Polish in Smoky Brown, $1 from eyes lips face
3. The Unisex Circle Scarf, $28 from American Apparel
I actually own this scarf in asphalt and I LOVE IT! It is such a simple, go-to scarf. I literally just wrap it around my neck twice for a chic look without having to fret over the styling. However, if you want to add a little pizzazz to your look, this scarf can be worn several different ways. In true American Apparel fashion, with this scarf you can; double it up, make it a hood, make it a shawl, make it a capelet, make it a figure eight top and even make it a one-shouldered dress! Talk about versatile.
4. Shea Travel Treasures, $39 from L’Occitane
The Shea Travel Treasures encompasses all that I love about L’Occitane (and their ec0-friendly beauty products), complete with a functional bag. This set includes Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap in Milk and Lavender, Ultra Rich Shower Cream, Shea Butter Body Lotion, Shea Butter Ultra Rich Shampoo and Conditioner and Shea Butter Hand Cream. Shea Travel Treasures will make the perfect gift for anyone; your Mother, Grandmother or best friend. Also, you can split it up and add the different pieces into your existing gift bags/stocking, etc. With the price tag marked down from $61, this gift set is a steal!
5. Glitter Clip Frame Purse, $12 from TopShop
I love, love, love this – I just purchased two as gifts. This adorable coin purse is the perfect mingling of fashion, frugality and sparkle.
6. Custom Camera Strap, $30 from Sarah Frances Kuhn
I have written about my infatuation with these camera straps before, and now is the perfect time to re-visit these beauties. If you are like me, your girlfriends do not venture out for an event without their camera in tow. Give them the gift of fashion and comfort with these stylish camera straps.
7. “Field of Poppies” by Van Gogh Umbrella, $29.99 from Amazon
What can I really say about this umbrella? It is practical and beautiful! I think any lady would be thrilled to unwrap this treasure. It’s the perfect type of gift, something you would’t typically buy for yourself, yet still useful.
8. MICHAEL Michael Kors Wool Pyramid Studded Extra Long Gloves, $35 from Bluefly
