When it comes to gift giving, most of us want our gifts to come across as thoughtful, practical, and fun. We’re of the mind that some of the best gifts are items that you’re likely not going to splurge on for yourself, though you absolutely adore them. And that’s why we love to shop at Anthropologie for our gifts. So many of their items are beautiful, useful, and so fun to receive.

We’ve tailored this gift guide to match the holiday gift wishes of many different types of women. And, all of these items you can buy for $50 or less—which is perfect, because we’re giving away a $50 gift card to Anthropologie in our #VerilyMoment giveaway! (Full disclosure: This post and giveaway are not sponsored by Anthropologie. Verily Magazine is the sole curator and sponsor of this post and giveaway).

Shop for a friend or shop for yourself—either way, embrace Anthro beauty this holiday season!

Knit Sock Slippers or Pajamas

In these upcoming chilly winter weeks, a good pair of slippers ($35) are a gal’s best friend. Likewise, a pair of cozy and pretty pajama pants have us actually excited for the cozy winter nights ($48).
