Well, we turned around, and November arrived!! I’ve gotten into shopping mode around here because not only is Christmas on the horizon, but both of our daughters have early December birthdays. While they usually give me some ideas for presents, I still like to find a few things that will surprise them.
As I’ve been online shopping, I came up with twenty-five things that might make good gifts for the women on your Christmas list. There’s a wide variety of categories and most items should be under $50.

I found these candles while shopping with my mom last year. I bought the Bartlett Pear Mason Jar Candle and liked it so much that I went to their website to order more. My most recent purchase was the Apple Cider Donut and it’s a wonderful fall scent!
Just last week I mentioned these as a favorite thing in my newsletter, but they also earned a spot on this list! Watch for sales; you can also sign up to receive coupons.
This long necklace is simple but pretty and would be a great accessory for so many outfits.
What makes these cute cards, notepads, and other paper goods even better is that they can be personalized.
You might find yourself looking forward to cooking when you can serve your food in these dishes! They come in four patterns. I like the spring bouquet.
This set comes in several colors and would be perfect for braving some winter weather in style.
Order a Bible and have her name imprinted on the front.
You’ll find lots of positive reviews for this blanket! It comes in a number of color choices.
You can give this as a one-time gift or a yearly subscription. Choose from home goods, beauty and wellness products, as well as fashion items.
If you know someone who likes to journal, this is a wonderful gift. I bought it for myself in January and write in it every Sunday afternoon. The prompts are great and I already enjoy looking back over the last ten months at all that I’ve recorded.
Our older daughter and her boyfriend introduced us to this game and it’s so much fun to play! It’s similar to Phase 10, but takes less time to play.
I first saw this in sage, but it’s available in a number of colors.
I really like personalized gifts. You can choose four of the recipient’s favorite things and have them printed on the front of the canvas tote bag. What would mine say? Maybe Books. Family. Mexican Food. Travel. Or I could go with Chocolate. Podcasts. Mountains. Georgia Bulldogs. 🙂
My girls have live succulents in their dorm rooms. I think they’ve had to replace a couple, so I see this faux version as saving money in the long run!
If you know someone who enjoys playing around with makeup (definitely my younger daughter!), this would make a great gift.
If you’re buying for someone who won’t be visiting for the holidays you can ship them one of these gift boxes. I’ve sent them to my older daughter in college several times. They offer all sorts of baked goods including cookies, brownies, scones, cakes, popcorn treats, and more! The ones I’ve ordered have always been delivered promptly.
These are my new favorite bath towels. The set is a splurge at full price, so definitely watch for a sale. When I last ordered, most colors were 50% off.
I had a pair very similar to these that I wore for several years. I’m in the market for a new pair now and plan to check these out this week.
These are so pretty and you can choose your state or other patterns. These Slate Coasters are also a good option.
21. Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Round by Myquillyn Smith.
Have a friend or relative who enjoys decorating and hosting people in her home? I feel sure she would enjoy this book. I’m not much of a home decorator myself, but I loved this book! Myquillyn has a great philosophy for seasonal decorating and includes many practical tips.
A number of fashion bloggers I follow have shared good things about this tote. It also has lots of positive reviews!
Here’s another pretty kitchen item to inspire your cooking.
As someone whose feet are always cold, these sound like an amazing gift!
How cute is this purse? It looks like a perfect size if you’ve streamlined what you want to carry. I also like this Striped Canvas Crossbody/Shoulder Bag if you need something a bit larger.
Whether you’ve already finished your shopping or don’t plan to start until the week before Christmas, I hope you enjoy checking out a few of these items. Maybe you’d even like to do a little shopping for yourself 🙂
