Receiving chocolate as a gift during the holidays is both a blessing and a curse. As much as I love chocolate, I know that within just a few days, I will regret every decadent holiday treat that passed my lips. I can’t be the only one who feels this way.
As a practical girl by nature and a fashionista in my heart and by trade, I love useful gifts. When they are well-made, look and feel luxurious, I love them even more.
Consider this list of holiday gifts under $100 for your fashionista who has everything. Even if you’re on a tight budget, these gifts will appeal to her practical side and help her take care of herself and her stylish things.
iHome Vanity Mirror Bluetooth Speaker
Your stylish loved one will use this every day during her morning beauty routine. It blasts her favorite tunes or podcasts, and acts as a speakerphone for hands-free calling. She can ask Siri questions through it, and it also features dimmable full-spectrum color lighting around the mirror. Depending on the style and vendor, prices run between $40-$200.
For the person who still feels like she has nothing to wear, consider a monthly subscription to Infinite Style by Ann Taylor. Your fashionista can rent, return and repeat. She will receive three pieces of fresh work attire for just $95 a month. If she loves a particular piece, she can purchase it for 40 percent off.
A pretty hat box
For the fashionista who wears cowboy hats, wide-brimmed straw hats, sun visors or ball caps. Instead of displaying her wide collection of chapeaus as interior decor, where they can collect dust, give her a variety of pretty hat boxes that will keep everything neat and tidy. Pick up one box or a set at Hobby Lobby, Container Store, Amazon or similar stores. Prices are well under $100.
A fresh set of cosmetic bags for travel
If your fashionista is a heavy traveler, she should probably refresh these every year. Cosmetic bags are an affordable, fresh and oh-so thoughtful gift. She will think of you every time she uses them. A wide selection can be found on Amazon. Look for waterproof finishes. The color and pattern is up you. Because she should replace them every year, feel free to choose a fun color or whimsical pattern. Price is less than $20.
A small cross-body bag
This is a classic staple that every seasoned fashionista or budding fashionista should have in their collection. The finishes and shapes are endless; just make sure it is tiny. A cross-body bag is essential for any traveler, shopper or adventurer who doesn’t want to be burdened by a purse. Get her keys, cash and phone out of her pockets and into a small cross-body bag. Price varies on materials and brand.
