The Little ♀ Gift Guide under $30

 

The holidays are here! If you're like me there are a lot things pulling on the purse strings at the moment...but a gift for your little still needs to materialize in the next few weeks. Eek.

I've pulled together items that are all $30 or under that are beautiful, meaningful and empowering.

Of course you could also donate to a meaningful cause too. Now that our daughter is old enough to have more meaningful discussions, we've talked a lot about donation as a gift to one's self or to others as the best way to help people, animals, the environment, etc. On the national level organizations such as the American Civil Liberties UnionNatural Resources Defense Council, and the International Refugee Assistance Project could use funds right about now.

Enjoy!
