Gifts Under $40 for the World Changer

It's that time of the year where I find myself getting sentimental.  I think about all of the people in my life, and how much they mean to me.  And then I start to look for the perfect gifts for each and every one of them, because in my eyes, they deserve the world... but I can maybe afford a world map.

In introducing this year's gift guides, I wanted to be sure that I kept budget at the forefront of my mind.  That's why this guide ranges from $8 - $38.  There's a little something for everyone.

I also wanted to keep distinct personality types in mind when creating this year's gift guides.  There are so many wonderful gift guides floating around out there, so I wanted to bring something a little different to the table.

A lot of my friends are super involved in the community.  In fact, it's how I've met the majority of the friends I've made in my adult life.  I created this gift guide today with those ladies in mind.

'Woman on a Mission' FEED tote ($25)  •  Not only is this bag cute, practical, and environmentally friendly, it also provides 10 school meals for a child in need.

Day Designer ($34)  •  Not only does this planner break your day down by the hour, but it also has space for tasks, notes, prioritized tasks, and daily gratitude.  (The inspirational quote on each page is just icing on the cake!)

Stress Away essential oil roll on ($38)  •  When I know I'm going to have a particularly rough day, I put a little of this on my wrists and the nape of my neck.  The calming scent does wonders.

'Nevertheless, She Persisted' Coffee Mug  ($10)  •  Because sometimes you need a friendly reminder to keep going while you're drinking your morning coffee.

Bad Girls Throughout History ($13)  •  For those days when she needs a little dose of inspiration or a reminder that she can do hard things.

To-do list pad ($8)  •  My best friend Amanda gave me a gorgeous to-do list pad for Galentines Day.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed because I'm looking at a list and have no idea where to start, it allows me to prioritize tasks in chunks.  I really like this list because it breaks "to-dos" down to three categories - tasks, correspondence, and errands - and leaves a quadrant open for notes.

Stripped:  Inspired Writings for the Evolving Woman ($10)  •  I keep this book in my work bag for those moments that I need an extra dose of motivation.

Natural Silk Sleep Mask ($10)  •  Because fighting the patriarchy is exhausting.

Pieces of Me Bracelet ($30)  (c/o)  •  Pieces of Me products provide an opportunity to put your personality on display, but also to remind you of your strengths and keep you inspired and encouraged.  Choose between 30 traits to determine which one suits you or the wearer best (take this quiz if you need a little help).  I love my Determined cuff bracelet, and I've got my eye on the Confident necklace.

Inspirational Print ($10)  •  I actually have this quote written on a sticky note and stuck to my computer monitor.  It's a great mantra for anyone, but especially someone who feels overwhelmed or stressed.

See anything on there that speaks to you? 

Happy shopping, and happy Monday, sweet friends!  Wishing you a happy and productive week!
