Ok, so (crap!) it’s the holiday season, and that means crunch time.

Nevermind the seemingly endless cooking and over-the-top decorating. Nevermind the final exams and extra shift holiday hours. The biggest celebration, and biggest stressor, of this time of year is the dreaded gifting. Tis the season to wrack your brains over those holiday gifts for loved ones (and the ones you barely tolerate).

The hardest part about gifting during the holidays is 1) the sheer volume of gifts you have to buy, 2) the shortage of parking spaces and LONG lines to buy said gifts, and 3) knowing someone well enough to “surprise” them with a gift they don’t already have. Doesn’t it seem funny how you never pay attention to your friend’s overall style until it’s time to buy them something? Not to mention how all of your friends have their own unique look!

Stop. Breathe. Look deep into my eyes, and listen to my 100% free advice. During this busy time of year, my expert advice is to focus on the niche of your giftee.

First, consider who they are and how they typically shop. Then, surprise them with the best gift in the entire world that totally matches their inner personality and fashion style. From stocking stuffers to giftwrap worthy finds, I’ve got plenty of ideas to help you find something for everyone!

Since barely any of us are millionaires, here are some stylish holiday gifts under $50. Here is a roundup of 5 most common fashion girl styles from some of my favorite – and most affordable – retailers and gifts to give, and hopefully receive!

Holiday Gift Guide Jewelry and Accessories

The Simple and Chic Fashion Girl Style

This girl is all about carefully selected color and isn’t afraid to match pink with anything. She likes clean lines and crafted flare.

H&M Shoulder Bag – Add a pop of color to any holiday outfit or party dress with this $8 gold H&M metallic crossbody

CLUSE Metallic Strap Watch – It’s true that all that glitters is not gold, sometimes its silver and leather like this $40 CLUSE watch

Baublebar Y-chain Necklace – Add a touch of glamour to any outfit with this delicate $42 layered gold necklace perfect for V-necks and off-the-shoulder tops.

Baublebar Mya Drops – These rose gold $38 tiered drops are the definition of simple and chic. Dress them down with denim, or dress them up with the perfect LBD.

This girl is all about that bling! She is not afraid to go big with eye catching patterns, chunky necklaces and huge chandelier earrings. Shopping for her can be hard, because she probably already owns everything!

Trina Turk Sticks Statement Ring – This one-of-a-kind $30 gold statement ring should never compete with any other piece of jewelry

Anthropologie Belt – This $48 ultra-chic belt screams statement and matches with everything from dresses to long cardigans to thick sweaters.

Ettika Bow Choker – Wow them at your next holiday party with this $50 mesh bow and leather choker; not meant for the minimalist girl.

Baublebar Crossbody Bag – Baublebar now sells accessories! That’s right; and this $48 sequins crossbody bag allows you to channel your inner sea queen

Casual Fashion Style

It really does not take much to please this fashion girl because she does not ask for the moon and the stars. She is happy with the basics of everyday fashion, but make sure her basics are holiday worthy.

H&M Earmuffs – These easy going blue $10 earmuffs go with every sweater, jacket, coat and trench.

H&M Watch – Gift this watch to your laid back BFF who’s ok with wearing pink.

ASOS Metal Marble Stud Earrings – You already know the casual minimalist who would LOVE these $10 studs

Kate Spade Taxi Mittens – You will never have a problem flagging down a ride with these babies

Chic and Confident Fashion Style

She doesn’t need the flare like your statement-making friend, but she can still walk into a room and get all the attention. Think Charlotte York from Sex and the City.

H&M Rhinestone Earrings – Pair these $13 rhinestone earrings with a sexy sleeveless party dress.

TopShop Classic Beret – A beret always adds a chic spin to any day outfit.

Lucky Brand Leaf Cuff – This $18 leaf cuff shines bright and is perfect for the modern girl who loves classic jewelry.

Bohemian Girl Fashion Style

Think trendy earth mother when you shop for this fashion girl. She is not a label junkie, but she does love the small details that comes with her jewelry (and it’s probably so unique you wonder where she got it from). When shopping for her, remember she does not like rhinestones or fancy fabrics. She likes eclectic accessories that look one of a kind.

BOOHOO Maya Triangle Drop Earrings – These $6 earrings will look perfect with your hair pulled back and a thin scarf

Melrose and Market Panama Wool Hat – Branch out from the holiday beanie crowd with this $30 metallic band wool hat

Alex and Ani Peace Ring – Live every day in peace with this $15 gold wrap ring

Lucky Brand Earring Set – An edgy collection of modern and bold, this $27 earring set comes with seven sets of studs displayed on a leather patch

And everyone else in between…

For all the other fashion girls who are just impossible to shop for, here are a few fool proof gift ideas!

Vera Bradley Hanging Organizer – Have all your lotions, potions and beauty tools right at your fingertips with this $35 hanging organizer

Kendra Scott Nail Lacquer – Inspired by beautiful stones and colorful hues, this $16 polish lets your nails dress up for the holidays too.

Need Supply Co. Mini Lip Trio and Pouch – This $48 mini lip trio and complimentary pouch comes in 3 colors: nude, red, and deep brick red

Who are some of your best friend’s unique style? Are they pretty hard to shop for?
