Five Cheap Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Friends

As a college student, a lot is expected of you. You have friends at school, friends at home, friends at work, and an entire family that you’re expected to buy gifts for. And as a college student, you most likely do not have hundreds of dollars to blow on gifts for your friends. Here are a few out-of-the-box gift ideas for your friends and family that won’t break your bank account.

  1. 1. Kylie Skin Headband

    As trivial as this little piece may seem, everyone hates to have their hair get in the way when they are doing face masks, washing their face, doing their night routine etc. Make your friends’ lives easier and gift them with this super cute (and super cheap) Kylie Skin headband. This headband is such a pretty color and super practical too.

  2. 2. Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Gloss Trio

    In this day and age, we are all Kardashian-obsessed. There is simply no denying it. After all, this company is worth 1.2 billion dollars for a reason. Their products are amazing and the packaging is to die for. With this holiday trio, you can follow the popular trends while staying in the Christmas spirit and within your budget.

  3. 3. Kendra Scott Jewelry

    Kendra Scott Jewelry is so dainty and beautiful, while also being incredibly affordable. Gift your friends with this super cute and practical necklace that they will wear all the time, and maybe a matching piece as well.

  4. 4. Custom Glitter Phone Case

    While fun phone cases may seem very middle school, these custom glitter phone cases are so in right now that everyone should have one. In addition to having an awesome looking phone, your friends will have a fun little thing to fiddle with during class, which is always a plus.

  5. 5. Sephora Holiday Bundle

    No holidays are complete without a Sephora holiday bundle. These gifts can range in products, brands, price, but definitely not in the holiday spirit. With this gift, you can give your friends the perfect travel-size minis in all their favorite Sephora products, or things you love and want them to try! This bundle will make the perfect secret Santa or stalking stuffer this holiday season!

There’s no need to make the holidays any more stressful than they need to be! Give your friends these super fun, but still personal and affordable gifts and everyone is guaranteed to have a great holiday season.
