It's Christmas Eve! Have you finally finished your shopping, or are you still out on the hunt? We've reached our final installment of this year's Gift Guide, and rounding it out with gifts for under $100. I had originally planned to have Gift Guides which included ideas from denominations of $25 under $100 (ie. $75-100, $50-75, $25-50. under $25), but with my exam schedule and work getting in the way, I just couldn't. I've tried to include gifts from each category to balance out this last list, so hopefully you're able to find a gift that is within your budget!
1. Iconic Cape - Community (Aritzia) | $75.00
I love to transition a lot of my summer/fall dresses for the winter by throwing on a quick sweater to keep myself warm. I personally prefer a looser fit sweater as it is "sweater weather" after all, but I don't want the sweater to swallow up the dress completely. A looser sweater lets your dress still show through but keep you warm. If you find that the sleeves are too short, Brandy Melville also offers a great alternative.
2. Black Dahlia Matte Lip Tar - OCC (Sephora) | $22.00
Winter is a great time to try out a dark lip and what better way to do it than with a lip stain. I've seen some great reviews online for this particular shade that allows your to layer it up in order to achieve a deeper look. A single application leaves your lips a plum shade, and a second application leaves them a dark vampy burgundy. You won't have to worry about losing any lip color through the process of eating a merry drinking throughout the night!
3. Love and Lacquer Reds Set - YSL (Sephora) | $60.00
This set is perfect for winter with the red lip gloss stain, nail lacquer and beautiful mascara. As the website says, these are some of the most coveted items in the YSL cosmetics range and what better way to allow your lucky lady to try them out by giving her a set for Christmas! It's all perfectly packaged in a gold box so that you can easily wrap it up and she can re-use it for storage.
4. Nike Free 5.0+ - Nike (Lady Foot Locker) | $79.99
I am a huge fan of Nike Frees not just for runnning but for working out in general. I've also heard from many other people that it's a great shoe for walking around especially when you are traveling and busy sight-seeing. You can't go wrong with a neon color and the Nike site itself lets you customize your own shoe in order to meet your desires. I prefer these over any other runners as I have a really high arch and I find that these always seem to fill them in so I'm not left with a hollow space between my foot and the shoe. There are a ton of different color varieties that get released every season so don't worry about being stuck with a neon pastel pink if she's not a big fan of the color.
5. Coquette Scarf - Wilfred (Aritzia) | $85.00
I personally own this scarf and can attest to its warmth. It's made of 100% wool which is fantastic as it really blocks out the wind when it's cold out. It's also huge, which allowed me to use as a blanket when I was busy hibernating in my university library whilst trying to study for exams. It's also really long, so you can wrap it around your neck multiple times. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I always detested scarves that were too short to properly wrap around my neck since then they'd leave this triangle at the top of my chest that was exposed to the wind. Ever since I've purchased this scarf, I have completely solved this problem and kept myself warm in this cold season.
