Video: Best Holiday Gifts on a Budget

Hi guys! As some of you might know, I was in New York City this week doing some fun TV interviews (35 back to back to be exact) with Target talking about holiday gifts for everyone on your list. I had such an amazing time. Here's one of the interviews I thought I'd share with you. 

It features tons of ideas from Target's new gifting collections, whether it's for family members, co-workers, teachers---you name it. Best of all, most of the ideas are under $15 bucks so they won't break the back.

Back to Basics

Lately, I've been all about rethinking my wardrobe and adding more classic pieces. I recently added this cashmere sweater to my staples. It was on major sale for only $45 bucks (originally $120!) at Saks Off Fifth. I also added a white-button down shirt and tan ballet flats from J.Crew during Black Friday. 

What are some of your must-have staples and best places to get them?

Holiday Gift Guide: The Perfect Gifts for Everyone on your List with Target

Making a list and checking it twice? Holiday shopping can be overwhelming, and with so many people on our lists, it can be difficult to find the perfect gift for everyone. But this year, there's help. I was actually in New York City today sharing tons of great tips on how to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list with Target. There's actually going to make our lives so much easier this holiday season.

Target has introduced four entirely new gifting collections and hundreds of stocking stuffers that are organized by recipient and personality, so you can find a great gift for everyone on your list. With nearly 1,700 items to choose from, it’s easier than ever to find gifts all in one place and at a great price, with most under $15 and exclusive to Target.

Stocking Stuffers
One of my favorite tips for selecting stocking stuffers is to stick to a theme. For example, start with a larger gift like a mug or a fun hot cocoa mix and fill the stocking with hot cocoa toppings and snacks. It’s a theme that can work for everyone in the family, just by swapping out the mug or mix. For more stocking stuffer inspiration, be sure to check out Target’s Wondershop.

Something for the Whole Family
The holidays are also the perfect time to start a family tradition. From parents that grew up on board games to kids playing for the first time, the whole family can have fun with classic options like Rustic Candyland and Connect Four. Younger kids will also get a kick out of this ready-to-build Gingerbread House Kit.

Top Gifts for Women and Teens
Target’s gifting collection for women features stylish gifts for all. On-the-go gals will love these travel accessories like luggage tags, travel pillows and more. Cozy options like this faux fur blanket from Project 62 and fun beauty products like bath bombs will give the gift of relaxation.

Teenage girls can be picky, but this curated collection is a young fashionista’s dream. A fun makeup bag and brushes are the perfect gift for teens who love experimenting with new styles and looks. 

Something for the Men in Your Life 
It seems like every year we run into this question – what to get the guys in your life. The men’s gifting collection at Target features all kinds of gift ideas for the hard-to-shop-for guy on your list. For the cocktail connoisseur, check out this bar set and this Threshold drinkware set. And for any bearded gentlemen in your life, this Cremo Beard Grooming Kit will have him looking good year-round.

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Beauty Lover

The holidays are right around the corner, and if you’re still not sure what to get the beauty lover on your list, not to fret. This year, you can get all your beauty needs in just one place: Ulta Beauty. They have great gift ideas for everyone on your list (and for all budgets too). This place is pretty much my beauty wonderland.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite items that any beauty lover would enjoy:

1. The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey Essential Selection: Everyone could use a little pampering, especially during the holidays. This Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey set is the perfect gift for someone looking to unwind after a long day. Plus the packing is super cute too! It comes with a shower cream, body butter, soap and hand cream. Oh, and did I mention it smells absolutely delicious. I might just need to get this one for myself too.

2. CHI for Ulta Beauty Glamosphere 1” Flat Iron: I can’t live without my flat iron, especially living in Miami (hello frizzies). This CHI for Ulta Beauty Glamosphere 1” Flat Iron would make for the perfect gift. It has ceramic plates to really lock in moisture and leave your hair looking silky and shiny. It also has an LED temperature control, so you can customize the heat settings. I love using this flat iron on my roots, especially when I’m curling it. It looks like I came straight out of the salon.


3. NYX Meet the Metallics Lip Vault: One of my favorite gifts to give during the holidays is lip gloss sets, a girl can never have too many lip glosses right? Besides, they work for everyone. I’m really loving this NYX Meet the Metallics Lip Vault set. The holiday kit comes with 12 mid-size tubes, including 6 matte metallic lip colors (perfect for adding some shimmer to your holiday soirees) and 6 six matching non-metallic versions in a soft matte lip cream. I absolutely love the “Rome” shade, which is the perfect “mauve pink” tone.

4. Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Ballet Rose Eau de Toilette: The delicate scent of pink rose petals layered with sparkling lychee and finished with hints of woods, make it the perfect scent to give as a gift. It’s a great ‘everyday’ scent (whether going to work or out on a date) that your friends and loved ones will enjoy. I’m all about feminine fragrances and this one is sure to get them several compliments wherever they go.

5. LORAC Mega Pro Palette 4: I love gifting and receiving eyeshadow palettes. They’re always so much fun! This LORAC Mega Pro Palette 4 comes with 32 eye shadows in all the matte and shimmer shades you’ll ever need to create the latest on-trend looks. It really is such a beautiful and complete palette. They’re also highly pigmented, buttery soft and blendable.

So there you have it, some great gift ideas from Ulta Beauty that are sure to delight anyone on your list.

What are some of your favorites?
