Feeling like the grinch this season? Take a break from studying for finals and shop Alice’s top picks for each gal in your group. Here’s a roundup of gift-spiration under $50 for the season of giving when you’re living off leftover dining dollars for the rest of the semester.
For the friend who’s always losing something:
Tile Key Chain
This is a brilliant gift for your friend who is always losing her keys. It syncs with Bluetooth to your phone, so she’ll never misplace those all-too-necessary keys again… so long as she doesn’t also lose her phone. Find it for $25 here.
For your designated wine night hostess:
Slate + Wood Cheese Board
What better way to show you have your life together than bringing out a pretty platter with an assortment of fancy cheeses at your next wine night? Bonus gift: Include a bottle of wine (that’s not Barefoot) to really impress her. Find it for $19 here.
For your friend with way more Instagram followers than you:
My Cinema Lightbox
She’s cool! She’s trendy! She takes her social media presence very seriously. This lightbox creates the ultimate background aesthetic. We can see the #mood post now. Find it for $30 here.
For the friend who loves all things vintage:
Record Player with Bluetooth Speaker
It’s the best of both worlds! She can appreciate the aesthetic of the record player and use the speaker when she exhausts her extensive record collection. Find it for $39 here.
For the friend whose closet you always want to raid:
Leopard Clutch and Evening Bag
Every fashionista knows cheetah print doesn’t have an expiration date, and it goes with just about anything. This clutch also comes with a chain, which can be turned into a cross-body. Double win! Find it for $31 here.
For the homebody:
Pink + White Striped Silk Pajama Set
You’ll never catch her out on a Tuesday night. This girl loves to stay in and binge watch Scandal instead of tagging along at late night bar crawls. Keep your Sunday Scaries, she’ll be snoozin’ in her new favorite outfit. Sweet dreams! Find it for $48 here.
For the friend who should really become a make-up artist:
Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette
As if she needed any more cosmetics! This is a holy grail palette for any eye looks she’s yet to achieve. Smokey eye game just got better. Find it for $23 here.
For the friend who has to pencil you in:
Weekly 2018 Planner

For the gym monkey:
Alo Yoga Mat
You can’t go wrong with Alo gear for the workout-obsessed. Your BFF (Best Fit Friend) will surely use it during Pure Barre classes. Find it for $44 here.
