Best Gifts for Your Holiday Gift Swap (Under $25!)

All through school, Secret Santa was one of my all-time favorite traditions. Whether it was just contained in a group of friends or grade-wide, I loved dropping hints throughout the week and the big reveal at the end. Fun fact: I once made the girl I had start a conga line to get her hint for the day. So it’s an understatement that I take this kind of seriously. Here are my nine favorite under $25 gifts for whatever holiday gift swap you’re doing this year.

Mad About Plaid

I find my love of plaid ironic since I spent eight years of school in it and practically begging to get out. But recently, I’ve been obsessed with all things plaid, especially skirts.

Five years might not seem like long, but this chapter has grown so much in such a short time and I’m proud to have been around since (almost) the beginning. These girls have meant so much to me throughout my time in college and after graduating, they mean even more.

Gift Guide: For the Home Obsessed

This gift guide is for anyone who’s like me and totally obsessed with all things home and redecorating. This year I’ve done an office and now I’m in the process of redoing my bedroom.
