30 Under $30: Holiday Gift Guide for Her

I know I’m not alone. Every year I browse through holiday gift guides and find myself saying, “These items are great but some of them are a little pricey.” I want affordable gift ideas! Let’s keep your holiday shopping on a budget this year with my 30 Under $30 series. Today I’m rounding up 30 of the best gifts for women, each of them with a relatively cheap price tag.

P.S. One of the best ways to overcome the “I don’t know what to buy” syndrome is to keep track of gift ideas throughout the year. I record every little gift idea my husband mentions in my Notes app on the iPhone. If you didn’t do this, don’t panic. There’s always next year! Here are a few ideas to help you out in the meantime.
