Women's Christmas gift ideas under $20

  1. Fave tumbler: This skinny, lightweight tumbler is my very favorite. Keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for HOURS, fits in your cupholder (and your hand), and has a leak-proof, anti-spill lid. It's totally obsession worthy and I'm confident it makes a great gift because I've gifted it over and over!
  2. Silk pillowcase: A dang good and super affordable dupe for the Slip silk pillowcase I'm in love with. It gives you the same benefits of less bedhead and being good for your skin, but for way fewer pennies. Although the real Slip silk pillowcase is definitely more luxurious, this one is so great if you want to stay under $20. It comes in 12 different colors and the reviews are great.
  3. Makeup case: This makeup case is a TOTAL game changer. Big enough to fit all the makeup without being too big, super travel friendly, and you can see everything just by opening it-no digging required!
  4. Food chopper: My brother got me this last year and I'm still OBSESSED! Easy to use, dishwasher friendly, and over 9K PERFECT five star reviews. I use it at least 3x a week.
  5. Headbands: These are really, really stretchy, soft, comfortable, and super cute and affordable. I'm a fan. Great gift for girlfriends, sisters, daughters, mothers-anybody!
  6. Jade roller: I have included this in so many gift guides because it is so good. A facial roller is such a treat! These are amazing for applying serums or facial oils and giving yourself a facial massage. Yes please!
  7. Highlighter: This highlighter is an Allure Best of Beauty Winner and according to a Sephora makeup artist who I spoke with, better than anything at Sephora! Seriously phenomenal and so pretty.
  8. Barefoot Dreams socks: If I'm at home, I'm probably wearing these socks. Like butter on my feet! A highly rated, highly affordable under $20 gift.
  9. Tote: This super pretty, super versatile tote gets great reviews. It also comes in a TON of colors to choose from.
  10. Hand towels: A perfectly practical gift that is oh so pretty too. All the reviewers say they're super soft, absorbent, and high quality.
  11. Bath salts: Baths are one of my very favorite ways to just relax and be in a “happy place” for a few minutes. These bath salts are Amazon's Choice and earn top marks from reviewers.
  12. Trinket dish: I love having a pretty dish for my jewelry! I keep mine on my nightstand so I don't have to get out of bed to take off my accessories AND I always know where they are! Great gift for a jewelry lover.
  13. Gold hoop earrings: A best selling, affordable classic. THOUSANDS of perfect reviews and three finishes to choose from (including the most gorgeous rose gold)!
  14. Mug: I always love a new hot cocoa mug and this one is so cute andI love that it's personalized!
  15. Wireless charging pad: Mind blown. Have you ever seen a prettier, thinner or more affordable wireless charger? Over 12K perfect reviews.
  16. Monogram keychain: Never lose your keys again with this cute keychain! I love a good monogrammed gift and this one makes a perfect stocking stuffer.
  17. AirPod Pro case: Protect your purchase and never lose your AirPods again! I also really love these silicone cases to easily differentiate between mine and Neil's AirPods. Such a good gift for anybody living in a multi AirPods household. Here's a case for the original AirPods too!
  18. Blue light glasses: A cute 2020 must have! Protect your eyes, prevent headaches, and look cute doing it!
  19. Reusable straw: Paper straws will be the death of me. Say no to single use plastics and paper straws with this super cute reusable straw! Mine lives in my purse and I use it ALL the time. The mint is so cute!
  20. Gold wire basket: I hate kitchen clutter so I love that these super pretty baskets give things a ‘home' while looking gorgeous.
