Not to brag, but I would consider myself a good gift-giver. Yes, I usually stress out weeks before a birthday or holiday, but somehow I always manage to find a gift that perfectly encompasses how I feel and see the person I’m giving it to. This year at work I was surprised by the announcement that we were doing a Secret Santa for under $20 for the entire team. Some of the people I barely know and most of them are significantly older than the demographic I usually shop for, so that had me panicking a bit.
But luckily I chose a familiar name that belonged to a woman much like myself—somewhat girly and easy to shop for. I took an evening to pop by my nearby Sephora and managed to pick up a few things at the samples counter that I thought would be a good beauty kit for under $20. Granted, I used some of my beauty insider points for one of the items, but nonetheless, I did not exceed the amount and think she’ll really enjoy the gifts; I know I would.
