#Inspiration #Guides and Tips

Wondering what to wish for this Christmas? The same question pops up each year, and it’s just as tricky to find those thoughtful gift ideas to buy for others. There’s often so many gifts to sort out too, right? A gift for mom, one for your sister, another one for your BFF, and maybe even a few goodies for Secret Santa at the office. Phew!

So let us help! To make it a tad simpler for you this year, we’re offering some gift ideas on what to wish for, or what to gift. Here’s our Holiday Gift Guide, with affordable Christmas presents to give and receive this festive season.

Gift Ideas Under $15

A gift for under $15, is that even possible? Sure is! There’s plenty of pretty and practical accessories that fit perfectly into a Christmas stocking – and that won’t break the bank. Get one, or two, or three and start stuffing those stockings!

Take a peek at all the gifts under $15, starting with these three favorites:

  • Small Pencil Case with Elastic - Whether you’re a planning pro, a student, or a bit of a scatterbrain, everyone needs a pencil case to keep track of their pens. This little gem is available in pink and green and can be wrapped around your planner.

  • Stencil Ruler – A ruler with built in stencils isn’t just for straight lines. Create beautiful headers or adorable doodles with the help of these stencils.

  • Sticky Notes – Sticky Notes are nifty sticky pads perfect for jotting down lists, reminders, and ideas. Attach them in your planner or organizer so you can always carry them with you. Here in the beautiful Beautiful Botanicals collection.

Tips for the Secret Santa Game

Aaah, time for the Secret Santa game again – a tradition that can create a little healthy Christmas rivalry or bubbling laughter. Maybe even a bit of both! It’s the game where you “steal” presents from each other, and it’s become incredibly popular over recent years. The challenge here is to be quick at nabbing what you want, as well as contributing with gifts that people will actually want!

For the Secret Santa game, the gifts often need to suit people of various ages. 10, 20 or 30 dollars? Usually, you’re also looking for more affordable options. If you need gift ideas for the Secret Santa game, you’ve come to the right place!
