Britney with Best Gifts under $20

I know favorite things parties are really popular this time of year, even if they may look a little different in 2020. But in reality, I feel like these are gifts that anyone would love. They are unique and perfect for the person that is hard to shop for. Bonus: these are all things that are $20 or less.

Drift Room Spray and Air Freshener

1. Room Spray + Car Fresheners

use “HOMEGROWN20” for 20% off

Drift car fresheners are amazing. The wood is actually soaked full of the scent. It smells so good, and you can even subscribe to get new scents each month. Drift also has room sprays so your environment smells phenomenal wherever you are!

Battery Storage Organizer and Batteries

2. Battery Holder + Batteries

You don’t think you need a battery organizer until you see one and realize it’s exactly what you need in your life. This is designed to hang on the wall and comes with all the necessary hardware, but it could also be put in a drawer. It has slots for every kind of battery, but what I love most about it, is the built in battery tester so you can make sure you get the maximum longevity out of each battery you use! Pair it with a pack of batteries and you have a practical gift that’s perfect for anyone!

Air popper and kernels

3. Popcorn Popper + Kernels

We just recently started using an air popper and it has been so fun to watch it all pop out! It leaves no kernel un-popped. The scoop measures the exact amount of kernels to use. We love to use the scoop to melt the butter as it cooks. This would be a super fun gift for anyone when combined with a cute bag or box of kernels.

Notepads and pens

4. Muji Pens + Notepads

Once I discovered Muji pens, I never looked back. They are the only ones I use. My favorite size is the .38 size. They write so beautifully and these little notebooks would be the perfect pairing.

Glossier Boy Brow

5. Glossier Boy Brow

This is my most well-loved makeup product. I have the brown color and it literally works on everyone I have tried it on. It applies so quickly and cleans easily if you have any mistakes. It goes on even and smoothly. If I could only have one makeup item, it would be this!

Microfiber hair towel rolled up

6. Microfiber Hair Towel

This is specifically designed to be the perfect size and material for hair. I love that it whisks away moisture and makes drying your hair fast and easy. I like to leave my hair in it for about 20-30 minutes while I’m getting ready for the day. It makes doing my hair a breeze!

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original

7. Batiste Dry Shampoo

I have a tried all kinds of dry shampoo on the market and Batiste is by far my favorite. It leaves your hair feeling fresh without much of a residue. They have a brunette version if you are worried about the powder showing. Another tip is to apply the dry shampoo at night so it has time to absorb by the morning.

Extra Large Shower Cap with Yellow Details

8. Dry Bar Shower Cap

I shower every day but I only wash my hair a few times a week and this shower cap protects your hair from humidity. It has a microfiber lining and is extra large so you can get all of your hair in there. Then, when you’re out of the shower, your hair is already done and you’re ready for the day!

Small Dusty Rose Travel Jewelry Case

9. Jewelry Travel Case

This travel bag is adorable and a perfect neutral color. It’s perfect for keeping jewelry organized on the go and preventing tangles or lost pieces.

Smoothie Cups with Ingredients inside

10. Smoothie Cup

These smoothie cups are the best around (you know I tried them all and eventually had to produce my own). The idea behind these is to meal prep your own smoothies ahead of time, but they work perfectly well on the day of too. 5 cups, 5 lids, 5 straws, 5 perfectly formulated smoothie recipes. You will be amazed how simple this makes your mornings!

Penblade set of three

11. Penblades

These are the most practical thing to keep on hand. They look like a pen but it’s a blade instead. It’s perfect for crafting and use around the house. These are so much easier than scissors or knives. You will be amazed at how often you use these!

Mug and Medicine Ball drink ingredients

12. Mug + Medicine Ball Ingredients

In the winter, I love a good Medicine Ball drink. This is my favorite mug to use because it’s microwave safe and insulated. I thought these gifts would be so fun to give the mug along with the ingredients for a fun package!

Stainless Steal Cleaner and Microfiber cloth

13. Stainless Steel Cleaner

Stainless Steel appliances are beautiful but so difficult to keep clean. This is a cleaner and a polish so also protects from future finger prints. It comes with its own microfiber towel which is nice, too. You simply spray it on and buff it in the direction of the grain.

Table Topics Set of Three

14. TableTopics

This is a set of three. We have had a set from probably 6 years ago and we still use it often. It creates such fun conversations! We actually love pulling it out when we have guests for dinner, and it’s a great ice breaker!
