Gift Ideas For $30 & Under

Hey dollfaces! Jaz here & Its Christmas Time!!! Well not yet, but VERY close to, and I know there are a few of you lovelies who still need to get gifts for the special loved ones in your life. For this reason I have complied a list of cool but inexpensive gift ideas that can help make youur holiday shopping go a little more smoothly and leave your pockets a little less....empty.

here are a few gift ideas for those special men in your life:

This is a great gift idea for your fashion savvy male friend or relative. Cardigans are very trendy for guys right now and will keep him warm and looking good in the winter season. The pictured cardigan is from forever21 and will run you $23.03. There are many more styles and colors on the forever21 website and some of them cost even less than this one. Look to find the one that is perfect for that guy on your mind!

Okay, lets be real here dolls. Most guys...boys, men, whatever...are all just big kids at heart. And most own a gaming system of sorts that they are always dying to upgrade in one way or another whenever possible. One option is to purchase a controller for their xbox, ps3, or whatever their system of choice is. The option to have two participants is always better than just one! And who knows, maybe this new controller will allow you to get into gameplay with mr. man and give you guys some good 'ol QT. Browse Amazon.com you can find Xbox controllers for as low $25.00 and PS3 controllers for as low as $13.18!

 Every man wants to smell good so what better gift than a nice, masculine scent that's all his own. There are lots of quality colognes out there for less. Check out the scents before buying to be sure to purchase the perfect one for your loved one. Pictured is Guess by Marciano cologne. It can be found at Sears for $26.00.  

here are a few gift ideas for your special dolls :

This is the Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette. Any girl, or at least any girl I know, would die to have this palatte at her disposal! There is a vast variety of colors and according to various reviews on YouTube and the Coastal Scents website, they are all said to be very rich and well pigmented shadows. This particular palatte costs only $18.95 and can be purchased from coastalscents.com. It comes with a mirror and two dual end foam tip applicators.

As I said for men, the same goes for women. Everyone likes to smell good. Juicy Couture is a high -end brand of clothing, bags, jewelry, and fragrances that are delightful  in quality but usually quite heavy on the budget. However, this  Viva La Juicy set, which comes with lotion, parfum, and eau de parfum spray rings in at only $29.99 and can be found at your local target or target.com. They also offer the Peace, Love, and Juicy set, which i LOVE, but either set would make a perfect gift for a glam girlie.

Good Music. The gift that keeps on giving. Rihanna's new album "Talk that Talk" is  exceptional. You can jam it track for track. I think it would make a perfect gift to get a girl to tap into her inner rockstar. It will run you about $11.99 for the regular version, $16.99 for the deluxe. If the girl your gifting for is not a Rihanna fan, no worries. There are many other quality CDs that came out this year. Choose according to your loved ones personality and artist you know for sure they would like. .


Books are a great gift if you know your loved one is more of an intellectual. Or at the very least likes a little reading. I personally love to read and the Hunger Games series is one of the best series (if not the best) that I have ever read. This book would be a great gift for a person who likes to read utopian/dystopian fiction novels and doesn't mind a book that will keep them on the edge of their seats. Some other great book ideas are A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini or The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Gift cards can be a perfect gift for someone who is a bit more tricky to gift for. Money toward music (everyone likes music!) or your loved ones favorite store is a great gift. Just make sure the place or product of the gift card you purchase is somewhere that the person can spend $30 and get a worthwhile item. $30 can go a long way in the iTunes store, Forever21, or Walmart. If selecting a reasonably priced store that your loved one will enjoy becomes to difficult, there are Visa gift cards that can be used any where Visa is accepted.

I hope this was helpful to you all to make your holiday shopping trips a lot easier and helps to make your loved ones very happy this Christmas season! Love, Peace, & Hair Grease...oh, & happy holidays!!!
