Unofficial Cheap and Cheerful Gift Guide

Here it is y'all, my unofficial cheap and cheerful gift guide for all those last minute gift necessities. You know: stocking stuffers, neighbors, teachers, hostess, etc. It seems like the list is endless this time of year. 

So, if you are feeling a little less than creative and a little tapped for affordable gift ideas check out some of these hot finds all from HomeGoods and all for less than $20!

Let's get started...
It's not only the season of gift giving, it's also the season of germ sharing so give the gift everyone appreciates: soap. Beautifully scented guests soaps or the liquid variety, either way you can't go wrong.

If you're anything like me, list maker is your middle name. Finding scratch paper, on the other hand, always seems to be a struggle (that I am sure has nothing to do with my little 2 year old thief).
You can never have enough cute decorative paper. 

The home bar is all the rage this holiday season, so why not add to it by gifting festive bar themed gifts. Or a fun wine carrier paired with your favorite sparkling wine. I'll be the first to tell you that a bottle of wine is always appreciated in our household.

Home decor can be a tricky gift to give (and get), but don't shy away from the challenge, especially if your recipient is a home decor enthusiast. A good rule of thumb: keep it neutral. 

Ornaments like these little cuties, handmade in Germany, go way beyond your typical ornament exchange. And at less than $5 they could even be used as memorable tag on any gift bag. 

I was a little surprised to see a Starbucks gift basket at HomeGoods, but that's what I love about the place - you never know what you're gonna get. It's all about the hunt!

Ok, so this wood bowl with capiz shell liner is not less than $20, but I just saw the same bowl at a local decorator shop for more than double the price! So, if my Mr is reading this and still searching for ideas…here it is, sweetie!

Anywho, hope you enjoyed this little gift giving guide as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Now get out there and get shopping!

until next time,
