2. Personalized Notebook

A notebook is a dime a dozen. But a personalized notebook takes time, thought and a lot of love. Gift this to the writer you oh-so admire or the one who’s always forgetting to write things down. With this gift, they’ll actually want to start taking notes. Check out Etsy for a variety of styles and prices to fit your budget!

3. Quay Sunnies

It may be the beginning of winter, but it’s never the wrong season for trendy eyewear. Quay sunnies are the perfect glasses that won’t break your budget but will still offer some style. Plus, you can pick the perfect shape and lens to match your giftee’s personality. Most styles range anywhere from $50-$65.

4. Scratch Map

This gift ticks all the boxes. If you’re shopping for a travel addict, home decor lover, or someone who loves DIY things, then you have to get this scratch map! Covered in gold foil, the traveler simply uses a coin to scratch off the destinations they have traveled to. At $26, it’s the perfect gift for the brag-worthy friend or the friend who could use a little motivation to save for their dream vacay.

5. Personalized Cell Phone Cover

Got an inside joke you want to keep reliving? Maybe there’s a picture you want your BFF to see all day, everyday. Whatever it is, there’s no better way to share than a personalized cell phone cover. Check out My Custom Case for designs and prices depending on the phone/laptop/tablet.

6. Mini Nintendo Classic 

Quite possibly the hottest, retro gadget of the season. FINALLY you can play all of your favorite video games from the 80’s and 90’s without slamming your old game console or blowing into the old games. Though they’re constantly selling out, Nintendo promised they will supply a steady stream of minis throughout the holiday season. Just make sure you’re on high alert for this one!

7. UE Boom Speaker

If you’re the friend who’s got a bit of dough to spend, you’ve gotta get your music-loving bud this portable speaker. Sure this wireless speaker is $200, but it’s small enough to carry anywhere, waterproof, shockproof and has a 15 hour battery life! Maybe you should put it on your own holiday wish list…

8. Ciaté London Mini Mani Month

This ain’t your average advent calendar. If you’re looking to amp up your friend’s nail game without spending too much money (approx. $58), try this mini mani month advent calendar. They receive a new color every day up until Christmas, so it’s actually like you’re giving them 25 presents! Yeah, you just won the best friend award.

9. Animal Headphones

Beats by Dre are cool and all, but we’re looking for something new. Something with a little flash. That’s where the Emily & Meritt animal ear headphones come in. Not only does the color just look amazing, but the cat ears add a little extra something that just can’t hold a candle to beats. A great gift for the music buff or the fashionista.


10. Awesomeness Films on iTunes

Is your friend a movie buff? Then this gift might make their day, even their holiday season! Awesomeness is offering some of your favorite movies for $7.99 on iTunes (including Expelled, SMOSH: The Movie, Janoskians: Untold and Untrue, SNERVOUS, Dance Camp ($6.99), Shovel Buddies and We Love You).
