Christmas Gift Guide – Youtube $25 and under


Welcome, everyone! It is indeed the Christmas season! I am happy to share my first video of a three-part Holiday Gift Guide. Today’s gift guide contains ideas that are priced $25 and under. The next Gift Guide will contain options in the $25 – $50 range. The third video will have gift ideas that range from $50 on up … including a couple luxury pieces. Many of the items that are mentioned in this video would make perfect stocking stuffers, as well. A few items that are linked below may not be in this video. Either they have not arrived yet, or they are gifts that I did not need to purchase this year for one of my loved ones; but ones that I would certainly recommend. The gifts that are in transit, I will share with you on Snapchat. Be sure to be following me on that platform, as I share not only ‘Christmas’ related stuff, but a lot of other informative and fun material, as well. My username is tracy_hensel.

To see the details of my look in this video, head to my blog post, here.

      Thank you so much Gretchen! I am really hoping to bring more. Fashion blogging during the winter months, here in Michigan is BRUTAL! I think that during these real cold-weather months, doing videos may be a better alternative. Thanks so much for your kind support!! Have a Happy Christmas Season! xo
