a month of lights, feast and snow; time to close your eyes, feel another year pass by you and embrace the new beginning with your family and friends. Winters for me is a season full of holidays – UAE National day, Christmas & New Year Eve a time of celebrations.

So to get into the festive gear, apart from decorations and outfits, what is that one thing your agenda is calling you for?

Well, you guessed it right, GIFTS and lots n lots of them.

So, this winter to help you out RT Hijab Styles contacted few UAE-based bloggers and asked them what they would love to receive this holiday season. And, here’s the thing each item is under 100 AED.

Gift Guide under 100 AED

Unlike guys, the list of gifts for girls is endless, but each girl has their own preferences and each one of you have a small money bag to make them excited. So head over to landmarkshops clearnace sale to get some colorful statment necklaces or charm bracelets. If your friend is into a street style, this brown and black fringe bags from Splash Fashions are perfect to stasify their boho look.

If your lady love is into beauty, let her try the latest buzz of B-Town, Konjac sponge is such an essential in my skincare routine, you could get it from Feel UniqueThe beauty floor or even Glam Box. FeelUnique.com is such an affordable alternative to all beauty items, shipped directly from UK, another fav of mine is travel size real techniques makeup brushes.

Lastly, need a quick gift without any time wastage? Head over to Lush store and get their Snow Fairy or Secret Santa Gift Set which I highly doubt any girl won’t jump with excitement for. Or how about a box of cinnamon for your foodie lil friend.

If a person you are buying a gift for is really into beauty or fashion, then she would definitely appreciate any of these three items under 100 AED. So first we got a BeautyBlender (80 AED), which is an amazing make-up tool that is going to change your life (or at least your foundation’s life). You can apply concealer, foundation and even powder with this sponge for that undetectable and perfected look.

Secondly, who doesn’t love a good red? Sephora is famous for its bestselling Lip Cream in 01, which is basically a very long-lasting and pigmented liquid lipstick. This product lasts for hours and is very budget friendly (69 AED).

Finally, if the person you’re trying to impress is a fan of fashion illustration and history – “The Dress” by Megan Hess would make a gorgeous gift; this book depicts 100 iconic moments in fashion and is available for a very good price (75 AED).

Skincare indulgence is always a good idea. And a gift set in pretty packaging? Yes please! I have personally used the Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit scent and it is divine. You will be left feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Using the items in conjunction will, obviously, make the scent last longer. My personal favorites are Grace Cole Watermelon Refresher Gift Set &  Grace Cole White Nectarine and Pear Dazzling Collection 

This is a great book to unwind within the holidays. It’s a compelling mystery by a brilliant author which every bookworm would love – or even for someone who doesn’t read often but enjoys a good story. A review of this book by me can be read here. Also, Borders run a 3 for 2 offer on a wide selection of their books. Need I say more? Click here to order now.

Add comfort, style and elegance to evenings and weekends with a selection of prints and solids, with embellishments for occasions. You can never go wrong gifting in classic black and white colours.
