Recently 7 of my college friends shared each of their favorite things under $20! I loved their ideas so much, I had to make it into a gift guide. This is such fun mix of items from all different categories!
I know that Favorite Things parties normally happen during the holidays, but if you are missing your friends during this social distancing time, a favorite things zoom party is perfect! Find a few friends who are interested, trade names, share your favorite things over zoom and drop your gift in the mail!
I haven’t tried all of these items yet, but I love the mix of them that my friends shared! All the items are under $20, but most are under $15. You can see all of the items here or from the links below:
Starting off is a great mix of beauty items. This Honest mascara came highly recommended by my friend Marissa, and a few of my friends tried it and loved it! Up next, have you ever heard of these tinkle razors for your face? These are so affordable and they have amazing reviews. My friend Brooke recommended this Queen Bee fragrance roller, which looks perfect to keep in your purse or the car. If you are looking for a new pair of drop earrings, you can’t go wrong with these leopard ones or these wooden earrings that come in a 2 pack on Amazon!
One of the most common questions I get asked, is if I use a sunless tanner. I don’t, but my friend Susan recommended this one, and she says the key is to use this mitt to apply it! If you are looking for some new hair ties, these spiral hair ties were recommended because they don’t crease your hair, and a simple way to update your ponytail is with this 4 pack of the cutest hair scrunchie scarves! I have and love this $20 steamer. It saves me so much time and I love taking it with me when I travel. And finally, if you are looking for a new candle, my friend Erin recommended this citrus grove candle from Hearth and Hand line!
The second half of this gift guide features a large assortment of items! Everything from this cute ceramic pour over ceramic coffee dripper, some great coffee, my favorite initial coffee mug, a Himalayan salt lamp, the perfect spatula, and if you are looking for a good book, check out The Secrets of Midwives or Educated. My friend Christy loves this Dash egg cooker. It is so affordable and it makes the perfect hard boiled eggs, and even poached eggs!
My friend Kendra recommended these cup cozies that come in so many different sizes and patterns! If you need straws, she also recommended these silicone straws that are available in a large size and a small size. These straws are also perfect if you are having people over and you need to be able to tell your drinks apart. If you love metals straws, these metal straws have a great silicone tip! They go really well with this Zak tumbler that has amazing reviews. These $2 plastic floral tumblers are ideal for summer, and this pack of striped kitchen towels are my favorite! My friend Amanda recommended this roll up pen kit that is SO cute, and perfect to keep in your purse. Finally, these joggers have been so loved by my friends and by Just Posted readers. They comes in SO many colors/styles and they are only $15!
Again, a big thanks to my sweet friends Marissa, Erin, Kendra, Christy, Susan, Brooke and Amanda for your great finds!
