When I did a poll on Instagram the other day, most of you wanted to see a gift guide with options around $50. So I’ve rounded up more of my favorite things $50 and under! I have some of these items already and everything else are things I’d love to receive! While some of these items are more geared toward women, a lot of these items are unisex and would work well for anyone!
