Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays! I love the traditions, quality family time, the time off work, the peace, and the memories, BUT I do not like how drained my wallet is afterwards!! This year is especially hard! I started a new job in April, and haven’t yet been able to save nor budget for many luxurious things! And living in Nashville, sure does not help that cause!

So… this year I’m going to have to skim it down for Christmas, and I hope my family and friends can understand!

I’m not quite sure what I will be getting everyone on my list, but my budget is around $15 or less per person, and I wanted to share it with you guys!

Candles, Candles, Candles!

This is actually one of my New Year resolutions from 2016… to finally burn through all my candles! Did this happen, nah bro! I have tried soooo hard to use them all! So, give the gift that keeping on giving; a candle! They also make great stocking stuffers!

Here are some of my favorites:

WHERE TO BUY: Wal-Mart, Target, Urban Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, etc.

Also sold on their website:

VOLUSPA – $10 (price ranges on size)

WHERE TO BUY: Athropologie, Nordstrom, etc.

There are some small things that I seem to always run out of! And some things I could really use!
