Great gifts aren't always expensive

5 Best Dirty Santa Gifts When You're on a Budget

The holidays are always fun, but they are always expensive as well. From work parties to Friendsmas gatherings to 5 different family Christmases, it can be hard to find those great gifts in the price range that allows you to attend all of these events. With some experience and my mom's experience, I have come up with some great gifts that any dirty Santa attendee would love to receive.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are always a spot on gift just because it doesn't have the chance of not fitting into someone's gift preferences. A Target gift card is always me dream gift, but I am also slightly addicted and could spend hours in there every single day.

A Pamper Basket

This idea is more for a girls only game, but a basket with face masks, nail polish, and fuzzy socks would be a cheap but great gift. Everyone wants a face masks and some socks to put on at night!

Anything cooking related

While this gift does not really benefit the teenagers, but adults will steal this gift in a heart beat. Everyone is looking for a reason to cook, especially during holiday season.


You cannot go wrong with candles, unless they smell bad (haha). Everybody loves candles, whether it's moms or boyfriends who can regift them to their girlfriend. While candles can be a tad overpriced, there are always sales going on this time of year, which makes them smell even better.

Candy with money

This gift could NEVER go wrong. Who wouldn't want candy and money?? A basket of some of your favorite candy with a $5 or $10 bill slapped on the front is a very easy gift that would definitely reach the 2 steal limit.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
