50 Gifts Under $50: For Her (#1-10)

Do the words "Holiday gift giving" make your palms sweat and your knees weak? Not anymore! This week I will be featuring my picks for 50 gifts under $50. There is no reason not to find great things within a reasonable budget so you can spread plenty of Holiday cheer. 10 great Holiday gifts will be posted each day which fall into the categories of Her, Him, Home, Eat/Drink, and Mixed Bag.

So, here are my qualifications for a gift to make my coveted list:
  • It can cost no more than $50 before sales tax.
  • It must be something fairly luxe and fall into the category of an item that the recipient may wish to have but out of practicality would never spend their own money on.
  • It must be relatively easy to find (either online, national retailers, or adequate substitutes are available).
  • Finally, it has to be something I would love to receive or would personally give to a friend or family member. I would never recommend something I wouldn't pony up for myself.
Here are 10 wonderful gift ideas for her (girlfriend, best friend, sister, mom, etc.):
