30 Under $30: Gift Guide for the Boss Ladies

Hello Everyone!  So Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I wanted to give you some quick gift ideas for yourself or for some of your “Boss Lady” friends.  I wanted to include items that were pretty inexpensive but valuable at the same time.  Because these pieces are so inexpensive, why not get multiple items on the list.  Check them out below!


  1. Impress These “press on” nails are the perfect gift for someone who wants to have a nice manicure for the holidays but don’t want ruin their real nails.  Also, these are a lot cheaper and less time consuming than going to the nail shop.
  2. Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System This system helps keep your skin nice and smooth.
  3. Urban Decay Cosmetics, Naked Basics Excellent for us makeup amateurs.  The shades are perfect for simple eye shadow application.
  4. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue One of my favorite fragrances as I have mentioned previously.  It’s light and fresh.  It’s the perfect scent for women on the go.
  5. E.L.F. Brush Squad Brush Set 7pc Another wonderful set for those just starting to wear makeup.  The price and quality are both excellent.
  6. Ulta Brilliantly Beautiful Color Essentials Collection I love these collections.  This box is filled with every makeup product that you need.  Try it out.
  7. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores I wanted to include another product that is good for the skin because skincare is very important; especially for businesswomen who are the face of their brands.
  8. Birchbox Subscription This subscription is so cool.  You get to try out all of these sample sized beauty products to determine what you do or don’t like.  And it’s only $10 a month!


  1. Buxton Leather Fashion Folio This organizer is perfectly stylish and professional.
  2. #GirlBoss I haven’t read this book yet but it’s definitely on my list of books to read. But from the description that I’ve read, it’s about the importance of trusting your instincts and following your gut.  I’m into that!
  3. LivePlan Subscription This subscription is terrific for businesswomen who are trying to develop their ideas and need a plan.  It’s a business plan software that helps to turn your ideas into reality.
  4. Kate Spade 17 Month Agenda Important for organization.  The design is nice as well.
  5. Etsy Posters A little inspiration goes a long way.  With all of the hard work that it takes to start a business, these posters help to give a little much needed motivation.
  6. Fancy Jumpdrive Every businesswoman needs a flash drive to save all of their information and files. But this one is also very fun and fashionable too.
  7. Business Card Holder A chic business card holder is another essential for businesswomen.


  1. Toysmith Deluxe Zen Garden This is a cool way to promote meditation and relaxation.
  2. Starbucks Gift Basket Coffee! For Starbuck’s lovers, this basket is perfection.
  3. Anthropologie Monogram Mug I love these monogram mugs. Who doesn’t love these personalized little trinkets?
  4. Massage Envy Gift Card After a hard week’s work, a massage is much needed.  Having a professional do it is even better.
  5. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion I keep a bottle of this lotion at my desk at all times.  It smells wonderful and yes it is great as a stress reliever.
  6. Instant Happy Journal Journals are a way to reflect and contemplate on your life and everything that’s going on.
  7. Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Red wine, as opposed to white, helps promote health and longevity. Its also a great way to disconnect from the stress of work for just a little while.
  8. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Candle Candles are always great for relaxation.  These smell wonderful.


  1. BP Stripe Skinny Scarf These scarves are in right now and they are so cute.
  2. Target Leather Lock Satchel Handbag  A nice size handbag is very important as a business woman because you have to be able to fit a few items in there like your iPad and business papers.  Very chic too!
  3. Binger Unixex Watch Watches are great accessories for business women.  Though we don’t really use them to tell time anymore, they’re great to wear for styling purposes.  They add a sense of sophistication to your look.
  4. Old Navy Trench Coat A trench coat is the perfect way to complete an outfit.
  5. The Limited Gift Card If you don’t know exactly what to get, a gift card for the business woman to do her own shopping is always a safe bet.
  6. Paparazzi Miss You-niverse Statement Necklace I just bought this necklace for myself for only $5.00!  And it is the best $5.00 purchase that I’ve made in a long time.  I can’t wait to show you how I styled it.
  7. H&M Long Sleeve White Blouse White Blouses should be a staple in every business woman’s closet.

Have you already done all of your Christmas shopping?  If not, I hope these ideas are helpful.  Let me know what you think of them in the comments section below!
