The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: Unique Finds That Won’t Break The Bank

The holidays are quickly approaching and I don’t know about you but I am always on the hunt for awesome unique gifts that don’t suck and won’t break the bank. The holidays are a time of joy and while giving is fun, it shouldn’t lead to starting the New Year off stressed and in debt.

I am a mom who runs on coffee + Amazon Prime so to help you find great gifts that won’t break the bank, I have put together this holiday guide just in time for your #BlackFriday and holiday shopping. These gifts are sure to impress even the hard to shop for person on your list!

1. Bamboo Brush & Comb

If you part of my Bossy Beauty community you know hair care is my passion. Taking care of our hair properly is all about the products we use as well as the right tools. Our hair is especially fragile when wet so using good quality tools when brushing and blow-drying helps to eliminate damage and breakage. This is a great bamboo brush and comb for that hair diva on your list.

2. Coconut Scrub

The dry winter months can wreak havoc on our skin and exfoliating is especially important to keeping the skin healthy and glowing. A friend of mine sent me this Coconut & Hibiscus body scrub and I have been obsessed with it ever since. A truly luxurious body scrub without the high price tag. The scent is amazing and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. Buying in a pack of two saves you money and means you can treat yourself and give one for a gift!

3. Skin Healing

A friend of mine was telling me that her son suffers from eczema during the winter months and she tried everything to help with it and found this organic skin healing salve made with Calendula and it worked wonders for his skin. So if you have a friend or family member who has severely dry skin and prefers an all natural product this would be a great thoughtful gift.

4. Eco-friendly

Have that friend on your list who is passionate about green living? The amount of plastic straws ending up in our landfills and oceans is a serious epidemic. These stainless steel straws make great stocking stuffers, cost less than $6 per pack of four and your crunchy friend will appreciate the thoughtfulness. Be sure to grab a pack for you and do your part for Mother Earth!

5. Wine Lovers

These insulated cups with lids are great for the wine lovers in your life and Simple Modern is a great brand that is more affordable than some of the bigger more well-known brands. They come in lots of stylish colors so you can choose based on that special someone’s favorite color, decor or favorite sports team.


6. Coffee Lovers

Gourmet coffee is always a nice gift for the coffee lovers in your life especially during the holidays and this Southern Pecan coffee doesn’t disappoint.

7. Home Office Glam

For that friend on your list who loves to show off her love of style this Rose Gold keyboard and mouse is sure to be a hit!

8. Fitness Junkie

For the friend who is a fitness junkie or loves to run on cold mornings, this ponytail beanie/running hat will keep her warm and stylish.


9. Magical Vibes

You had to know that I would include some unicorn fun in this post but how adorable is this unicorn coffee mug?! It is sure to be a special gift for that free-spirited friend who loves to channel her inner magical vibes.

10. Luxury Hair Care

I have been using the same hair care products exclusively for over 4 years and can attest to how much high-quality products have transformed my hair. For the mom who is running on coffee and dry shampoo, pamper her with the best dry shampoo on the market.


I hope you found these gift tips helpful in finding a meaningful gift for the important people on your list but let’s not forget the real reason for the season. Celebrating the birth of our Savior. No monetary gift means more than giving our time to spend with those who matter most. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and we wish you a very blessed New Year!
