It’s that time of the year again! A time for family, ugly Christmas sweaters, and questionable relatives from near and far. But really, one of the best things about the holidays is the shopping (second to getting to spend time with the family, of course) and getting to buy for the people you love. From the fashionable trendsetter to the family sommelier, I round up some of the best (and pocket-friendly) holiday gifts for everyone to enjoy! Get inspired, squeezers!
How beautiful is this Nate Berkus for Target Metal Winged Bowl? It’s such a great statement piece for any coffee table or bookshelf. This is the perfect home decor gift for that interior design buff in your inner circle. And you can’t beat a price tag of $24.99.
Here kitty kitty! I am quite obsessed with this Betsey Johnson Kitchi kitty clutch. Add an element of fun with this quirky handbag, which is sure to be a great conversation starter. The bag comes in pink and black. Wear it as an envelope clutch or as a shoulder bag. The gold nose clasp is a sweet little touch!
Keep warm in some holiday classics courtesy of Old Navy. Plaid is so quintessentially ‘holiday’ and a scarf is a cool way to stay warm. Scarves make great gifts for anyone in the family so load up and give them out to those you love! Dashing men, there’s something for you too!

Add some sparkle to any outfit with this $18 jeweled headband from Avon. Headbands are a great accessory to add some jazz and bling for the holidays. This leaf-motif stunner will dazzle any fashionista!
I look forward to October every year when MAC Cosmetics releases its new holiday collection just in time for seasonal shopping! And this year, they didn’t disappoint. Holiday-themed lipsticks and glosses, natural and smokey eye palettes, and sleek , shimmery packaging are in abundance this season. With three different collections (Keepsakes, Heirloom, and Objects of Affection), there’s something for every makeup aficionado.
Available at any MAC Cosmetics counter.

A little humor this holiday season? Yes, please! A home run gift for the budding comedian/comedienne and/or avid reader in your family. Or maybe they’re just a huge Parks and Rec fan like me. I predict many LOL moments when you read through Amy Poehler’s latest tome.
