The Muse’s Gift Guide: Gifts Under $30
If you’re wanting to keep your gifts on the lower end, say, mmmm $30 or under, this be the guide for you!
I always think that gifts of this price range are good for casual friends (not besties of course) you don’t see to often, or maybe a teacher/professor you really like, or perhaps a distant relative who you’d like to impress with a nice gift but nothing too expensive. It all depends really on your budget but for $30 bucks, right now in this economy, you can get a nice gift for just about anyone really.
These are some of the Muse’s favorite gifts for $30 bucks or under.
Urban Decay Hall of Fame ($29)
- Urban Decay XL Eyeshadow Primer Potion
- Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero
- Urban Decay Mini Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy
- Urban Decay Mini Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Timothy
- Urban Decay Mini Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
The Hall of Fame is a fav for me in the $30 buck range. Coming in just shy of $30 it contains mini essentials from Urban Decay such as gloss, mascara, lipstick, etc…plus it has a big old bottle of UD Primer Potion. It’s a good gift to introduce a friend to the line if they never tried anything from Urban Decay before or even to get hooked on my personal fav, the Primer Potion. Or if you already have a UD lover in your life she’ll be sure to love receiving not only a huge bottle of her fav primer but also cute little minis.
At $25 the Stila Lip Glaze Collection keeps a low down price but manages to give alot for a very little. With 8 shades of Lip Glaze to choose from you’ll be quite a hit with friends or family members who adore glosses. This one is lush and cheap.
Palette wise I’d say that the nicest in the $30 and under range would be the Urban Decay Show Pony Palette ($30) and the Too Faced French and Fabulous Palette ($28.50). Makeup lovers in your life will enjoy getting either one of these vibrant palettes particularly teens or twenty-somethings should enjoy the fresh, bold shades. Both are exceptional values for the price.
For the bath and body folks in your life check out Dylan’s Fridge Full of Sweets Gift Sets ($28). Each cute “fridge” is packed with gumballs (yes, the kind you can chew), a Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat Body Smoothie Lotion and a Dylan’s Candy Bar Re-Treat Soda Pop Shower Gel.
For fabulous under $30’s check out Philosophy First Snow ($25) this one is lush for the price in my humblest as it includes a nice little box stocked with Philosophy Snow Shower Exfoliating Shower Gel, Philosophy Snow Body Pure Snow Shimmer Body Lotion, and Philosophy Snow Kiss Lip Shine. Keep it just at the $30 buck range with the Philosophy Celebrate! Bucket (A trio of Philosophy Shower Gels) or the Philosophy Cookie Exchange (a foursome of Philosophy Shower Gels).
Anyone who adores a lovely palette will be thrilled to receive last year’s Isadora Diamond Eye Shadow Palette in Millenium Star. Housed in an elegant mirrored compact and containing five shimmering shades of shadow for $21 the Muse counts it as a unique and beautiful gift (Available from Amazon.com)
Always feel like my best gifts given are from Lush. Friends and family are always surprised and delighted when I introduce them to the joys of Lush and with so MANY gifts to choose from that are already wrapped up pretty (and even include a 15% Off coupon inside) it’s easy to gift without the hassle of wrapping. My personal favs for $30 bucks and under (heck some are even under $20 bucks!) can be found below!
For an extra special and unique gift check out Tokyo Milk Parfums ($28 Each), the fragrance lover in your life will love this discovery!
Give the gift of fun fragrances with fine offerings from Demeter all set at a price of $25 or under! Choose gift sets like Demeter Lollipop Duet ($25), Demeter Hershey’s Collection ($20), Demeter Virtual Cookie Jar ($24), and many, many others.
The MAC lovers in your life will be every so happy to find a MAC Lipglass & Lustreglass Set ($29.50) under the tree especially when it contains five glosses. The pretty box makes it easy for gifting and saving you cash on wrapping it up!
Prescriptives leaves us soon and any of your family and friends that might be mourning the line will be ever so happy if you gifted them with a Prescriptives Gift Set. All are priced at $29.50 to keep you well within your $30 buck range!
Pop Cabaret Bouquet Palette ($29.50) is an elegant little palette for gifting or getting.
Benefit Powderazzi ($30) is the perfect way to introduce friends to some of Benefit’s best powders and blushes.
Korres keeps me under my $30 range with crazy cool finds such as the Korres Sugar Plum Collection ($29.50), Korres Delights Your Lips Collection ($26.50), and Korres Little Travel Value Set ($22).
And that’s all we have time for today folks! Let me know what your fav gifts are for under $30 bucks or if you snagged any of the above for your friends or family (or maybe yourself wink, wink, nudge, nudge!).
