So Christmas is basically 24 more sleeps away which means if you haven't started your Christmas shopping you had better get your skates on.
Buying gifts for other people can be a traumatic experience. We've all been there, running around the shops, looking for the perfect gift only to find the left over dregs of cheap rubbish still sitting on the shelves. You have to stick to a budget but you want to find something that you know the recipient will like and get some enjoyment out of.
Shopping for friends if often the most fun but also often the most difficult. Sometimes you just want to give a token gift to say Merry Christmas, have a good one and other times you want to spend a little more and make the gift a really special one.
Here I have some gifts that cost under $50 that you can give to the girls in your life, your Sister, Bestie or even your Aunt. You could even give them as a stocking stuffer. I hope these ideas give you some gift buying inspiration.

Kikki-K 2012 Mini Diary $24.95 from www.kikki-k.com I always buy a Kikki-K diary every year.

Glitzy Glam Small Terry Makeup Bag ($10) and Key Chain ($10) with Personalised Initial from www.shopglitzyglam.com Glitzy Glam is an online store owned by You Tube Beauty Guru Sisters Elle and Blair Fowler. I love their store and have purchased many items from them over the past couple of years. Items usually only take around 7-10 days to ship to Australia and the turn around time is super fast and there is something in everybody's price range in the store. I purchased these two items for myself and a few friends. They make such adorable gifts and are really great quality.
