Gift Guide #2- Gift Ideas under $20

The older you get, the more people you gotta gifts for. I've learned it's normal protocol to get the neighbor, your babysitter, your boss, the administrative assistant, your dance teacher etc. a gift for the holiday. So I've put together some last minute gift ideas for all of the above and/or friends, lovers, co-workers, and/or stocking stuffers:

- Kevin Hart, Seriously Funny DVD (wal-mart $13)

- Happy Birthday nail polish by Deborah Hopmann (haven't seen it in stores, so google it- but one idea is to print out a picture and put it in a cute box to let them know it's on it's way!)

- Ear Muffs

- Caldrea soap set from Target OR lotions/body washes from Marshalls/TJ Maxx (my favorite scent is the blue one called Herbs of Provence, found at Target.)

- Eye makeup remover + Queen Helene Apricot Scrub (I reviewed here)

- Yankee Candle Balsam & Cedar candle + those long lighters for grills OR candle warmer (this is my favorite holiday scent- it smells like Christmas trees)

- 3 Magazines + popcorn bag & candy bar + slippers for a night-at-home in-a-bag idea

- Petsmart gift card + lint roller pack for the animal lover (they'll be thankful the next bag of cat or dog food will be free)

- Cake or cupcake pan + baking cookbook or cupcake cookbook for the baker

- Herb and vegetable seeds + planters + cute salt & pepper shakers for the cook

- Working record player from Freecycle + records from the thrift store for the music lover

- Coffee table book + coasters for the neighbor (Check out Postsecret book if you don't know about it)

- Travel journal + eye-patch + headphones for the travel OR a couple magazines for the traveler (or workaholic)

- slippers + therapeutic neck wrap + aromatherapy bath crystals for the babysitter (find all these items for cheap at stores like TJ Maxx/Ross/Marshalls)

- Notepad and pen set + cute fabric box for desktop organization for the student

- Bake cookies, banana bread, or festive cupcakes

- Make chocolate dipped pretzels with holiday sprinkles
