Holiday Gift Ideas for All of Your Gal Pals

'Tis the season of giving and as much as we want to give, our broke college girl budgets don’t have much to offer. That doesn’t mean we can’t give our friends some great gifts, though. There are great gifts at a manageable price for every type of friend. Keep on reading to find out!

 

For the Makeup Lover…

The brand Colourpop is a great choice not only for their cheap price but also for the amazing variety of products and finishes all with great quality. From eyeshadow palettes, lip glosses, loose highlighters, brushes, matte liquid lipsticks, and more, it won’t be hard to pick out a product your friend will love. And you’ll love it too because every item is no more than $25, with many items even under the $10 range. It’s so affordable you’ll be tempted to gift something for yourself!

For the Tech Lover…

Technology related gifts are not cheap by any means but the right items will make an impressive gift while also satisfying your wallet. A portable charger or built-in charger phone case is not only practical but there are great quality ones for cheap on Amazon. The brand Anker has many types of portable charges ranging from $20-65. They are also many highly rated built-in charger phone cases for around $35. Now your friends will never have to worry about their phone dying while on the go.

For the Fashion Lover...

Nasty Gal is an online retailer selling trendy clothes and while the pricetag may seem steep, the retailer always has 60% off sale. And I mean always, I purchased clothes from there in August with the 60% off and I see the sale is still going on. So get your friend a cute and unique clothing piece that will be sure to remain a staple in their wardrobe.

For the Food Lover... 

Who says gift cards are lame? Personally, I love to order food online, and I’m sure there are many others like me. But it can definitely get costly with all the delivery minimum, fees, and tip. Get your friend an e-gift card to an online food delivery service and I’m sure they won’t find it lame but appreciate you for supporting their bad food habits. You can customize the amount you want to give as well, so you’ll never spend more than what’s in your budget to gift.

Hopefully, now gift giving will be a breeze for you. It is possible to give friends a great gift they’ll actually love without breaking the bank. More, importantly, never spend more than you can afford. Happy gift giving!
