With christmas and all the festive seasons around the corner, I'm guessing you guys are as clueless as I am when it comes to getting gifts for your loved ones!
Today I compiled a list of things and ideas that have certainly helped me tons when it comes to buying gifts, FOR HER. So yes, your mom, sister, best friend, friends whatever.

This guide is not only useful for christmas, but also for any occasion that requires you to bring a gift.
I have also sectioned the gift ideas into 3 different price ranges, as I know not many are willing to pay for all the expensive gifts out there, at least for myself! 
All currencies are in Singapore Dollars, SGD unless stated otherwise

(Nope, none of the products are sponsored and im not paid to write any of these)
So here goes: 
  1. “Like” Tea Mug, GBP 5.95 -
  2. Ikea Mugs, $9.90 for 4Pcs -
  3. Ikea Candle Holder, GOTTGORA, $19.90-
  4. Maybelline Hyerper Sharp Liner, $21.90 -
  5. The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, $19.90
  6. The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Treat Box, $19.90 -
  7. Cetaphil moisturizing lotion - $19.90 (236ml)
  8. Maybelline Babylips Lip Balm, Assorted Price ranging from $3.90-
This range consists of a wide spectrum of affordable things that won't leave a hole in your pocket. 
I've included things that are not very expensive, but would serve well as a gift. Some others like The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil, Maybelline Babylips Lip Balm and Cetaphil Moisturizer are actually staple products in my collection.
I'm sure they will be thrilled to receive them!

Mini items like the lip balm will make great gifts because they are not only affordable, they are also super colourful and fun looking.
Pur  2 or 3 pieces up in a box or wrap them up with a cute ribbon.

Now for the ones with a tinnnyyy bit more budget, here are some gift ideas under SGD$30
  1. Tarte Magic Moments Kit - $24 -
  2. CIate Manicure Rainbow - $27
  3. Real techniques Face Brush - $23 -
  4. Sleek Cosmetics - Blush by 3, $22 -
  5. The body shop lip and cheek stain - $24.90 -
  6. Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara - $32
  7. IKEA Sissela Quit Cover and Pillow set - $29.90 -
  8. Eyeko Alexa Chung Lash Enhancing Eye Do Eyeliner, $25 -
Over here, I included mostly beauty and skincare products because lets face it, it is the easiest to shop for and there are just sooooo many varieties of them!
I can personally vouch for most of these products as I have tried them out myself. Others are all highly recommended products that I've read about online.. I'm sure you cant go wrong!
For the non-beauty lover, you can go with a cute and affordable quilt cover and pillow set like the one from Ikea, (number 7).
Ah so warm and fuzzy to be receiving such a gift on christmas, isn't it? :) Of course, you don't have to get this exact item, just an idea!

Lastly, this section is for the ones with more money in their pockets, or for a special someone that you wouldn't mind spending more on.
A gift guide for a lady under $90!
(Don't worry i've included things that are slightly more than $30 in there too)
  1. River Island Black Lock Front Clutch, $53.58 -
  2. NARS Limited Edition Holiday Collection Lipstick, $47.49 -
  3. Zoeva Classic Face Bursh Set, $86 -
  4. ASOS Large Face Slim Strap Watch, $48.71 -
  5. Origins Drink Up intensive Overnight Mask, $59 -
  6. Make up forever HD Invisible Cover foundation - $78 -
Firstly, how beautiful is that bag pack, you tell me?!
Okay besides that, I have included many items that range around $50, not too expensive yet. Haha! But yes, once again I have personally swatched the NARS lipstick and its AMAZING (i might run out to get one for myself after this post). 
Been using the Origins Face Mask every night and it does wonders to my dry skin (esp here during wintertime). 


One way to make ANY gift look nice is to wrap it up nicely (Go to daiso and get a $2 box, cheap and good) and include a personal heartfelt note.
Idk about ya'll, but I'm a sucker for such things and its always delightful to be receiving something a little more well-thought of instead of focusing on the prices of the gifts.

So yay, I hope you guys found this post helpful! 
Contemplating on doing a post on gifts to get for HIM, but we shall see how that goes. 
I'm even more clueless when it comes to that. HAHA!
