Chic But Cheap Gifts for Your Siblings

By Kelly Leslie, Student at San Francisco State University

Are you having a difficult time deciding what to buy for your siblings this holiday season? Being tight on time and money is challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find memorable gifts they’ll love!

Here are five chic but cheap gift ideas that are sure to be a hit.

Nail Polish:
What girl doesn't love being the first to try the newest trend in the manicure world? This year give your sister the coolest polish to hit nail art this year. She will absolutely love Nail Inc magnetic polish, which is only $16 at Sephora and available in a variety of fun colors.

You can’t go wrong when giving someone the gift of relaxation and beauty. If your sister tends to be stressed out more often than not, treat her with some aroma therapy bubble bath and body wash.

A perfect choice is the Ginger Burst body wash by Origins ($22.50). The citrusy, ginger scent will help her to relax and enjoy the holidays in no time. She is sure to appreciate the gift of relaxation during the hustle and bustle of holiday chaos.

It can be especially hard to shop for a boy, but if your brother is anything like mine, he is always looking to expand his movie collection. Whether it is a comedy, sci-fi or the latest action movie, he is always happy to have something new to watch. Most movies can be found for $20 or less at your local Target. Have some fun with it and let the little sister in you sneak into your brother’s room when he isn’t looking and check out which films he’s missing.

Amazon Gift Card:
I know it may not seem like the most personal holiday gift, but my siblings and I have been giving these to each other for years. They can be delivered through the mail or straight to an email account, and the best part about it is that there is something for everyone! Whether it is for someone who loves to go online shopping or even a book lover, $20 to Amazon goes a long way.

Anything DIY:
Still looking for something a little more creative? Don't be afraid to hit up Pinterest for some awesome "do it yourself" ideas. Whether it is a homemade calendar, blanket or photo album, it is sure to let your sibling know you care and it really is the thought that counts.
