Warby Parker is known for its affordable glasses and sunglasses that look and feel extremely expensive, and this two-sided glasses pouch is no different. Since both ends are open, you're able to pack two pairs of glasses (or sunglasses... or one of each). Just slip a frame into each end, and you're good to go!

Plur's Missing Person fragrance gets all the love, but the brand's Vanilla Skin travel-size body mist is one of those subtly spicy, sweet and skin-like fragrances that deserves more attention.

This scent isn't your standard boring, sweet vanilla fragrance. It has a creamy, peppery and sugary dry down that smells like a warm hug. Also, the sandalwood and gourmand notes make it perfect for any gender.

$20 at Phlur

Scented candles always make the perfect gift, and VOLUSPA proves that you don't have to spend a lot to get a beautifully packaged and smelling pick.

This $20 candle smells fresh, earthy and woody and has notes of vanilla orchid, amber resin and sandalwood. With a 50-hour burn time, you'll definitely get your money's worth with this candle (and then some).

In the fall and winter months, sealing in that body moisture with an oil makes all the difference, and this body oil from Saltair is my absolute favorite. It's both nourishing and deeply moisturizing while somehow remaining lightweight and not greasy.

Best of all, though, it leaves behind a creamy, spicy and woody aroma that smells like a lavish tropical vacation in the best way possible. Also, a little goes a very long way, so whoever you gift this to will use it for months and months to come.

Everyone needs and should own a portable charger, and this one from Nimble is arguably the best overall. It's ultra-compact, fast-charges and charges two devices at the same time and works with iPhone, iPad, Android devices and more. Choose from three colors to get the perfect affordable tech gift for your bestie.

Coach wallets and card cases are usually pretty expensive — we're talking $75 and up. Thanks to Coach Outlet's huge clearance sale, this best-selling signature coated canvas and smooth leather Slim ID Card Case is on sale for under $25!

It has three card slots and an ID window.

The tea lover in your life will absolutely scream when they unwrap this loose-leaf tea maker. Coffee and tea lovers always seem to get the short end of the stick during the holiday gift-giving season, but this $25 gift is one that's sure to make them smile.

Lastly, there are so many fragrance gift sets on sale right now at Sephora (even though the holiday savings event is over). However, this one from best-selling brand SKYLAR is, by far, one of the best.

Each fragrance in this set falls under the "Eau de Parfum" scent category, meaning they have a higher oil concentration than "Eau de Toilette" fragrances and will, therefore, last much longer on the skin.

All five fragrances in this set have the "Clean at Sephora" label, are perfect for layering and smell crisp, clean and natural. This is the perfect set to buy for the person who prefers a simple and approachable scent.
