5 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas Under $50 For Preppy Girls

We all have that one person in our life whose Christmas gift we keep forgetting to buy until the last minute. Sometimes people can be hard to pick out gifts for, so we keep procrastinating until the very last second when it comes to buying a present for them. If any of y'all are facing this struggle right now, you've come to the right place, because I've put together five of my go-to gift ideas for preppy girls.

At this point in the holiday season, you can't buy a lot of items online since it's so close to Christmas and they won't ship in time. However, these five items are gifts that can be found fairly easily, no matter where you live or what stores you have near you.

Cute Tumbler // There are so many preppy tumblers out there that would make a perfect gift! My personal favorites are the Lilly Pulitzer ones (I have three) and the Kate Spade ones (I don't have any but I love them). They are so cute, and you can find them in tons of different prints and patterns. I give these as gifts sometimes, and I usually fill it with Hershey's kisses or another small candy to add the perfect touch.


Bath and Body Works Candles // Everyone loves candles, especially when they are from Bath & Body Works. They have the best candles; they all smell amazing and they are the perfect addition to any desktop or countertop. I've raved about them in so many blog posts, so y'all probably get the point by now, but I still had to include them in this gift guide because they are the perfect gift. If you don't have a Bath & Body Works near you, I also love Volcano Candles and Tyler Candles.


Lily & Laura Bracelets // These beaded bracelets have been my latest obsession. I have three, and I wear them all the time. They can be worn with a t-shirt, or dressed up with a cute top. You can buy these at a lot of stores and local boutiques - I know Altar'd State has some, but I usually buy mine from The Impeccable Pig because they have a large selection. I'm not sure if they're the same price everywhere, but they're $10 each at The Impeccable Pig, so two or three bracelets make such a nice gift. I love how each bracelet is unique, and the bracelets come in so many pretty colors and patterns.

T-Shirts // Preppy t-shirts are great because there are so many brands and styles to choose from. Some of my personal favorites are Vineyard Vines, Lauren James, and Jadelynn Brooke. While it's too late to buy any of these online, you can try looking in any local boutiques near you. (If you live in Texas, check out a Tyler's store, because they have tons of amazing brands!) You might have luck at a department store like Dillard's or Nordstrom, too. All three brands have incredibly soft, comfortable t-shirts, and they're all under $50! In the above picture, I'm wearing a Jadelynn Brooke Christmas t-shirt. Even though you can't order them online in time for Christmas, I'd highly recommend looking around in local stores because they are my favorite t-shirt brand ever.

Makeup Palettes // I'm not a huge makeup person, so I don't spend money on makeup ever. This means that I'm always happy to receive some new makeup as a gift. It's greatly appreciated because I do sometimes run out of my favorite concealer or use up my go-to eye shadow pallet, but I never want to spend my own money on buying new makeup. There are so many great makeup gifts to choose from. I love the brand Tarte, and their makeup sets make great gifts, like this eye shadow palette or this contour palette. You could also put together a cute bundle of drugstore makeup that you picked up at Target or CVS if you don't have a place like Sephora or Ulta near you.

If all else fails, you can always purchase a gift card! While gift cards may seem a little impersonal, they're actually great because they're convenient to purchase at the last minute and they allow the girl receiving the gift card to have the freedom of buying whatever she wants.
