#hamr-gift-guide-for-herI’m excited to introduce you to the #HAMR Gift Guide! This mini series will be featured throughout the holiday season, giving you many gift ideas at an affordable price point since we’re all on a budget. One of my favorite things to do is find great items at great prices and share my findings with my friends, so this just seemed natural to do.

Up first is the ladies, of course. My top ten gifts for her under $100 are great choices for your best friend, hostess or grab-bag gift. What lady wouldn’t want something to make her feel pretty and smart all while reading #girlboss?!

Oversized Coats

Chicago winters definitely call for oversized coats. Honestly, you need to wear one to get all those other layers underneath the coat covered. Good job Chicago, ahead of the trend! Pastels are also on trend this season, so it’s a great way to get your wardrobe up to date. Stick with the basic colors for more than one-wear season.

Statement Bags

Make a statement with one of these bags. They are so fun and totally all-ages appropriate 😉 Don’t they all put a smile on your face? If you’re carrying one of these bags, keep your look simple, focusing attention to your bag. It’ll definitely be a conversation starter. I’m thinking my radio camera bag might need another buddy soon. (Cough, cough my birthday is coming up…)
