I’ll be the first to admit, that I’m probably not the easiest person to buy a gift for. I mean I could write a list and tell you what I want, but even that can be tough…especially these days for me as a Mom, I have everything I need, and there isn’t much I want! Sure, there’s stuff I WANT, but they are luxuries that are not easily justifiable due to cost and practicality. Seriously though, I have always struggled with issues of buyer’s remorse and I always want the best bargain… I’ve learned to live on a budget, and it’s just hard for me to ask for things that I really don’t need or can’t justify. At any rate, the holidays is not all about giving gifts, but it is also about receiving, because even though it may be a “material” gesture, you have to be open to the one who is giving, since it may be the giver’s way of showing their love and appreciation for you!

All that being said, here are some of my favorite picks “For Her,” under $100 from the 2013 Gilt.com Holiday Gift Guide!

Put a ring on it! Well, actually she will with this Crown Ring Holder by Three Rings. Sometimes I’m not so big on all the jewelry organizers, but I love this because it’s cute and practical, and different than a traditional jewelry box! Now if you want to get her a ring to place on the holder…that might cost more than $100! 😉 Crown her for $10 at GILT.

Give her some color… GILT has this Paula Dorf exclusive nail polish set of 5. Even if she’s the type to go to the salon for a mani/pedi, it’s always nice to have a set of polish on hand at home, and at $22, this is a GILT-less deal!

A robe! Everyone needs to have a robe and one of my most memorable gifts from a good friend was a robe, which I still use to this day every time I step out of the shower or need a quick cover up! Check out this Patch Pocket Robe by Blush Lingerie for a very affordable $39.

Bracelets can also be a very nice gift, they’re an accessory which I may not necessarily purchase f  rmyself, but if I have them on hand, I am bound to put them to use! This silver-tone set with white and blue bead details from Chamak by Priya Kakkar is pretty and would easily pair with a range of outfits. Find it at GILT for $55.

Last but not least, if your gift recipient is someone who’s into fashion and likes “labels,” you can’t go wrong with the Missoni Supermini Manual Umbrella. It’s cute, compact and above all stylish, perfect to keep in your bag to save her on a rainy day! at GILT for $69.
