The holidays are coming which means if you haven’t already started, it’s time to start planning your gifts. We bought a bunch of gifts for the kiddos when Toys R Us was going out of business, but we still have other family and friends to shop for. 

It can be hard to figure out what to get people. I mean as adults we often buy the things we need for ourselves, so I find the best things to get are the things that are nice but we wouldn’t necessarily get ourselves.

Below are my favorite items which you can pick up as gifts for each member of the family without breaking the bank.

  3. Honest Beauty Everything Eyeshadow Palette, 0.67 Ounce If you are as concerned about what goes on your body as what goes in it, then you need to check out Honest makeup. It’s by Jessica Alba’s company, so you know its made with clean ingredients and is quality makeup.

  4. ZORESS Women Genuine Leather Wristlets Bag, Clutch Organizer Wallets Purses for iPhone This little wristlet is so cute and it fits everything you need.
