I am rather late with all of my Christmas shopping this year, so for all of you who are late like me, here's a little Christmas gift guide with lots of gifts that are under €50. It can be hard buying gifts last minute, my mind usually just goes blank, so here is my Christmas gift guide.

Coffee table books

Something I usually ask for during Christmas is fashion books or other interesting coffee table books. I loooove flipping through books like these and they look good on your coffee table. I picked the following books:
Elements of Style, Humans of New York, Destinations of a Lifetime, Love Style Life


If you're a big lover of tea or coffee like me, mugs are always fun to give or receive. I love aesthetically pleasing mugs and these all do the job for me. I like giving either mugs with initials on it, to make it more personal, or I like giving funny mugs like the one from Urban Outfitters. Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie sell the best mugs!

Phone case

A phone case is one of those things that I personally don't like to spend money on. So giving or asking for one for Christmas is perfect! Especially if you ask for one that's a bit more expensive. I really love the cases I picked above. These are all from the Urban Outfitters website.


Asking for jewellery for Christmas is something I definitely would do if I am out of gift ideas. I am not really a jewellery person, but lately have been getting into silver hardware. I discovered two webshops called Circus Fling and Jewel Rue that sell the perfect, aesthetically pleasing - which seems to be rather important in my life -, jewellery.

Makeup brushes set

A set of makeup brushes is a good gift to give to someone who is just getting into makeup, or to give to someone who just really likes makeup. I love how high quality makeup brushes aren't that expensive. I personally love and own most of the Real Techniques brushes, but had to include this Vintage Cosmetic makeup brushes set, because they look soooo cute!

I like makeup. I like lipsticks. I feel like a red lipstick is the perfect Christmas present to give to your friend or your sister. MAC Cosmetics lipsticks are cheaper than most of these, so if the person you're buying gifts for is more into MAC, I'd say go for that instead!

I hope this helped if you felt a bit uninspired for your Christmas shopping or your Christmas wishlist. Is there anything specific that you're asking for for Christmas?
