Just kidding – let’s do it💃🏼🥂

Sharing how my girlfriends and I pull off a Favorite Things exchange each year with lots of fun gift ideas….

A Favorite Things Party is one of my favorite traditions during the holiday season! Who doesn’t love learning about other people’s fave things? It’s the perfect low-key gift exchange with girlfriends.

Here’s how it works…

  • Set your guest list (keep it small)
  • Set your gift budget. We like the $10/per gift range. $5 – $20 is safe, but can get expensive.
  • If there are 5 friends attending. Then each person brings 4 of their favorite thing. One for each guest (not including yourself)
  • Get creative. You want this to be a gift you truly love.
  • Wrap up your gifts and you’re ready to go
  • Once you’re at the Favorite Things Exchange, each person takes a turn passing our their gift and opening each together. Let the gift giver explain why this is one of their fave things.
  • You leave with one of every friends favorite thing.
  • How many more times can I say the words favorite things….lol.

And if you’re hosting or attending, here is a list of some great ideas for gifts under $20. Some are on major sale too! These gifts would also make great hostess + girlfriend + stocking stuffer gifts as well.

Outfit Details |

Balloon Long Sleeve Wrap Top ($20) | I spotted this top at Target the other day and had to have it. The price is great and if just feels a little more dressy than a basic top. I think this would be great for the holidays.

High-Rise Toothpick Jean (under $50) | Originally $128 – NOW $48. I wish this was the price that I paid for them. ha! I bought these jeans a while back and they totally got lost in my closet. Pulled the out the other day and was pumped. They are a charcoal wash so kind of a faded-ish black. They go with EVERYTHING! And I’ve been wearing them on repeat.

Gradina Block Heel Bootie (35% off) | My favorite booties have been on sale for over a month now. Which makes be think….they are going extinct. If you are in the market for a good bootie – this is it. Under $100. Size up 1/2 size for the perfect fit.

Paperclip Chain Necklace (30% off) | Glider Bangle Bracelet(30% off) | Two of my go-to Madewell pieces of jewelry are on sale. 30% off and both under $25! Each would also make a great gift.
