I definitely needed to call in someone "in the know" for this one. She put together 5 fabulous gifts under $50 for the girl who's IMPOSSIBLE to buy for. You know the one - she always has the coolest stuff, she's super fashionable, and she has the cutest home. Well, now you can totally get her a gift that will match her lifestyle! Check out the collection of gifts for the girl who's hard to buy for below + thanks to Emily for curating this gift guide and writing this guest post!

1. for the foodie - $49.99
If you’re like me, you have a boyfriend who thinks putting pots and pans in the dishwasher is a good idea. So a new cookware set is a must! Why this set? Because COPPER – DUH! Non-stick, durable, and pretty? Yes, yes, and more yes! You’re going to feel like you cracked the code afteryou give these babies to The Girl That’s Hard to Buy For!
2. for the beauty lover - $48
Who wouldn’t want Elizabeth and James for Christmas? On that note, did anyone else want to be an Olsen Twin growing up? Team MK all the way! Picking out perfume can be hard (and
very personal) but this kit solves that problem. With four distinctive fragrances, The Girl That’s Hard to Buy For has a chance to try them all and choose her favorite! And you better believe she’s going to end up buying the full size once she runs out. Because these scents are addictive! My fave? Nirvana Bourbon in my humble opinion) – the perfect blance of warm, sweet, and smoky.
3. for the home decor addict - $30
There’s two things I can never say no to: blankets and tassels. And this throw from Target has the best of both worlds! Giving home décor to a Home Décor Addict can be daunting. But let’s be honest: she already has 257 throw blankets and still wants more! She just can’t justify buying them for herself. That’s where you come in. Give her that neutral throw blanket with the tassels and she’ll love you forever. Just don’t be sad when she switches it out in the Spring!
4. for the tech savy - $49.99
A tablet for under $50? You heard right! With a 7” screen, long battery life, and Alexa enabled the Fire 7 is the perfect gift for The Girl that loves to have everything at the tips of her fingers! Just one click and she can access videos, books, music, and apps! She’s happy to be socially connected and your happy you didn’t have to break the bank to do so!
5. for the clothes horse - $44.95
When I was younger if someone bought me a sweater for Christmas, I’d probably
cry. Now I welcome the opportunity to get cute clothes that I don’t have to buy for myself!This sweater from American Eagle has a classic cut with a flattering neckline. Perfect for jeans or leggings, it’s lightweight and great for layering. The best part? It comes in a variety of colors. Don’t know which one to get for The Girl That’s Hard to Buy For? You can’t go wrong with Light Brown or Cream!
