A College Girl’s Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide | Under $25

Christmas is in under 15 days, and you have gifts to buy for a wide variety of people. What you need is something accessible and affordable — ordering online is an option but will it be here before Christmas? This is what you need to be considering while gift shopping.

Luckily, I am here to help with a few suggestions!

The fashionista

A Faux Fur Stole – If you haven’t heard, we’ve upgraded from faux fur keychain balls to stoles and scarves. These come in various colors and are no more than $25 at most places. You can catch these at Target (Multicolor, all black, light pink) | $20


A “Wallet on a String” or Quilted Chanel Inspired Bag – This comes in 8 different colors, has a huge space for phones (we with anything +’s rejoice!), and is perfect for quick errands, a night out or anytime, you don’t feel like carrying your big bag. Or for those Chanel lovers who can’t quite afford the real thing. Give the chic feel for Christmas. Twenty dollars each!



The makeup enthusiast

Real Techniques Limited Edition Brush Set or Miracle Complexion Sponge Kit – Six sponges for $10? Shoot, I might throw that in my own stocking for Christmas. You can never have enough brushes or sponges.

NYX #GlitterGoals Kit – Three glitters and NYX’s infamous glitter adhesive for $15 dollars? Yes, please! It is also on sale at Ulta and Belk!


NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment Duo Love Triangle – We’re giving luxury but not breaking the bank all 2017! | $22


The naturalista

Hair Care Travel Kit; Jane Carter Solutions & Uncle Funky’s Daughter – You can give them the chance to try new products from brands made specifically for their hair | $20

The Bare Necessities Starter Pack – Purchase your favorite natural hair products in a mini/travel size, tools (brushes, hair rollers, etc.) and put them in a cute travel case sealed with a bow.

The techie

Selfie Ring Light – Lighting matters, and this is a portable step down from the real thing.

Google Home Mini – This is a few dollars over the twenty-five dollar mark but it can be of great use to those who would like an assistant without having an assistant



Black Card Revoked  – People from all walks of life can enjoy this card game, it comes in a plethora topics ranging from Original to Hip-hop to Black History & more.

Gift Cards – Don’t know what to buy? Money to spend at their favorite stores is always an option. Sephora, Old Navy, Chipotle, or even Visa gift cards are accepted by all.
