With the holiday season in full swing, it’s hard to grab the perfect gift without maxing out your credit card. Here are 10 great holiday finds under $20 for everyone on your list!

Girls:

  1. Tired of trying to instagram the perfect snow selfie while wearing bulky ski gloves? No need to worry, touch screen sensitive gloves are the best solution. After purchasing a pair this fall, I no longer have to decide between snap-chatting and preventing frostbite.
  2. All girls would love an Urban Outfitters fun mug. From comical phrases to unique shapes and patterns, they are sure to make any Monday morning a little more bearable.
  3. As my compulsive shopping addiction grows, I have turned to accessories. My personal favorites are socks, specifically J. Crew Storm Socks. They are extremely warm and come in a variety of colors that are sure to match your sister’s favorite winter outfit.
  4. As winter wears on, more and more candles pop up in my house. Although I do love the aroma of a Pumpkin Spice Latte in my room, the candle’s decoration just doesn’t seem to match. After making this discovery on my most recent shopping endeavor, it is safe to say that these monogrammed candles will visually light up any room this year.
  5. We all know that a girl’s purse is essentially a bottomless Mary Poppins bag. The number of items we lug around in designer handbags makes the purse heavy, and after much wear and tear, it can leave us with a ratty bag that cannot be seen in the public. After doing some research, I finally discovered a way to continue carrying the same amount without tearing my bag to shreds. The Minimergency Kit contains the necessities every girl uses on the regular. It even includes a small bottle of hairspray, safety pins and nail polish remover, making it the perfect gift for any girl on-the-go.

Guys:

  1. The newest trend in men’s fashion appears to be socks with pizza and rainbow icons. If you know someone who fits this description and can’t seem to find the perfect pair for him, you mustn’t fear. Urban Outfitters carries a variety of unique socks that are sure to please any sock enthusiast.
  2. Happen to know an artsy guy who loves to take pictures? Do you not know what to get him? Problem solved, there is an attachment that can transform his phone into a fancy-shmancy camera that will take his photography skills to a whole new level.
  3. Even if you wait until Dec. 24 to order your gift, you can still purchase a stylish Burton Beanie for your favorite snowboarder. The hats come in a variety of colors, perfect for any last minute gift.
  4. As a frequent browser of goofy books and trinkets, I can say that Urban Outfitters tops the charts for most comical and bizarre books. From books like “Fashion Dogs” to “Dream Dictionaries,” there’s something that will make your favorite guy chuckle.
  5. Last but certainly not least, as we finish first semester running on low energy, what gift could be more perfect than a subscription to a coffee of the month club? This gift offers a unique blend of coffee from Latin America.
