Happy Saturday friends! Today I'm sharing another gift guide for the holidays and it's all about secret santa. I'll be honest, while I love the anticipation and surprise of finding out who my secret santa is, the whole secret santa thing and I have a rough history. When I was in girl scouts way back when, we had a Christmas party and were told to bring a gift for secret santa. As we were about to exchange gifts, somebody thought it might be more fun to do the white elephant gift exchange. I had never done that before, so I went along with it, grabbed my number out of the hat, and it just so happened to be a number one. At this point, I still had no idea what was going on, so I thought, "number one, yes!" Except, no. I grabbed a gift, probably the prettiest wrapped one, and it was a walkman (remember, this was like circa 2000). Yay! The next thing I know, one of the other girls was giving me the gift she had opened and stealing my walkman. Uhmm, say what know? Maybe someone should've explained this a little better because I would not have agreed to this! Girls ended up taking that gift and the next one and the next one until all I was left with was LIP SMACKERS! LIP SMACKERS?!? Maybe this is just my only child syndrome rearing it's ugly head, but how could I have began with a walkman and ended the night with three tubes of chapstick? Needless to say, I do not participate in the white elephant gift giving non sense anymore.
Anyway, off my soap box, here are some great gift ideas if you're in a secret santa with your girlfriends, family, sorority sisters, or office gals!

I actually just bought this set a couple of weeks ago and I love it! I love that I have the option to wear the lipsticks as they are or use the mattifier for a more edgy look. I haven't had a chance to try out all the colors, but I've worn the darker red and pink and they lasted all day. If you've got a makeup junkie, she'll love this!
two | Hempz Gift Set
Warning! If you give this to someone, they may become hooked! LOL! I really can't say enough great things about this lotion. It's a great moisturizer, but doesn't leave a greasy film on your hands, which I love. I've never tried anything other than their original moisturizing lotion so this might have to go on my Christmas list too!
three | Rosy Christmas
Y'all, this is another one of my ride or dies! Since I started using Ro's Argan Body Conditioner every day right after I get out of the shower, I've never had a problem with dry skin. This gift set is under $20 and I promise, whoever gets this is one lucky gal! Plus, you don't even have to wrap it! #win
four | Kate Spade Thermal Mug
I think anything Kate Spade is a good idea, don't you? This mug paired with a Starbuck's gift card would be the most perfect, tastiest gift they'll receive!
five | DryBar Texas Tease To Go Set
Y'all know I love me some Dry Bar and this to-go set is perfection! I have all of these products and absolutely love them. For only $28 you can't beat this combo, it's such a great deal!
six | Triple Tassel Keychain
If you find yourself $8 shy of the spending limit, this would be a great addition! Every girl loves a good tassel and how cute would this be to attached to the outside of your gift bag?
seven | Kendra Scott Nail Lacquer
Every girl loves a fresh mani, so why not give that gal on your list some nail polish that she may not buy herself! If you buy two, you'll receive 15% off making them under $30! Perfect for secret santa!
eight | Voluspa Bella Sucre Candle
Voluspa candles are my absolute favorite candles! They're soy, so they last forever and their scent easily fills a room. Not only does she get a divine smelling candle, but a cute jar to use when the candle burns down!
nine | Kate Spade Studs
I know what you're thinking, Kate Spade studs under $30, yeah right! At regular price, these studs are $32, but if you sign up for email you will receive 15% off your purchase making them $27.20! Perfect for that $30 limit! You're welcome!

Ladies, these little card cases are only $6!! I know that's far from a $30 limit, but stuff a gift card in there from your secret santa's favorite store and you've got the perfect gift!
twelve | Fleece Blanket
Can you believe this blanket is only $10? Blankets for everyone!! Seriously though, pair one of these with some cozy socks and house slippers and you'll have one happy secret santa!
