Perfect gifts under $50 do exist and I can prove it. I know what you’re thinking, why would I spend under fifty dollars when you just posted an under twenty-five dollar guide? Well, because these are a smidge classier. These are for those people in your life who are yogi’s, going-to-be new parents, and those who like the finer things in life…. like truffle rub.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation is a great light foundation. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of their Bye Bye Undereye makeup so their foundation is just as good. I think this would be perfect for new mothers, along with the undereye, and the new parent’s supply kit (number 9).
For those friends or relatives that are serious about their sleep, I’d get them number 2 – the weighted sleep mask. According to this article, people use them to ease anxiety and insomnia. I’ve only used something similar to this for when I get sinus headaches, but I do like the weight on my face to help ease my sinus pressure.
Diptyque (number 3) is a luxury candle maker that sells at Nordstrom and high end stores. The “diptyque candles are made of a high quality vegetable/paraffin wax mix,” which have a healthier ‘burn’ since they’re not made of “paraffin wax, which creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned (both are known carcinogens). In fact, the toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes.” So it’s one of the best candles to get and after you finish using it, it can serve as a beautiful makeup brush holder.
Is there really anyone who doesn’t like peppermint bark (number 4)? If so, I can’t be friends with you. Williams Sonoma is one of the best makers of peppermint bark, yes that’s my opinion, but having tried a number of different ones, I have the research to back it up.
Luxury to me includes baths. Sure, there’s Lush, where you can get bath bombs, but isn’t it time to try something different? These bath bombs (number 5) are 100% natural, 100% safe, pure and non-toxic, and made in the USA. This year, it might be cool to support an indie store instead of the huge one.
Number 6 – Planners. Every year my sister and I get planners for the next year. I think she likes to put stickers into them, like the adult version of a sticker book. For those of you who don’t know, planners are a big business and there are stickers, and other doodads you can put in them to plan your life down to the second. For bloggers, there are also content planners – this is what I’m getting for 2019. These are great for the Type A person in your life. 😉
I’m not sure if I’ve shared my love for this new jewelry designer, Maison Miru. I came across her through an Instagram ad where she advertised a pair of earrings for the cost of shipping. She’s based in NYC and is very nice. I had to write her because my shipping somehow got messed up, and she resent my earrings. I think this ring, number 7, is so pretty and delicate, like everything she designs. It also looks way more expensive than it is!
I heard about Sara Happ on The Influencer Podcast by Julie Solomon and was very impressed with her start and her dedication to lips. From hearing how dedicated she is, I’m going to purchase some of her lip kits for my family for Christmas. Hearing her speak about her start and how her company stays small, but she surrounds herself with people who are experts at their jobs. How can you not want to support someone like that?
For those yogi’s in your life, this cork wheel (number 10), would be a great gift. I would like this even though I’m not a yogi. It looks like something that would be nice to lean against while watching TV to stretch out the back.
The last two are for the foodies. It’s always hard to conceal wine to smuggle into places… so how about this purse (number 11) that has a hidden pouring spout? Imagine walking into the movies and having wine with your popcorn while watching a flick! And lastly, black truffle rub (number 12) for those who are very into their truffle seasoning. If you can’t get the real truffles, this rub will do.
What do you guys think? Anyone gonna go online and buy these? Let me know in the comments below!
