As we approach the holiday season, which can be described as the most wonderful time of the year, gift exchanging starts to begin. As much as we all wish we could slather our friends, family, and loved with expensive luxury items, we sadly cannot afford to buy our best friend a new car for Christmas. If you are looking for some affordable Christmas ideas then keep reading, so you can find items that both your friends and your wallet will love.

1. Cabin socks.

You can find these at Dick Sporting Goods with a price of 2 for $13.

2. Gourmet chocolates.

Check your local grocery store for gourmet chocolate gift sets that everyone enjoys.

3. Caramels. 

Anything ranging from gourmet caramel sauce to your favorite caramel candies.

4. Candy canes.

Since it's the most jolly time of the year, why not gift some inexpensive, yet traditional sweet treats?

5. A new speaker.

If you are like me and enjoy listening to music, but go through headphones like they're water, then invest in a new portable speaker or some inexpensive headphones since everyone needs a backup.

6. Coffee mugs. 

No matter if your friends are the worlds biggest coffee drinkers or they despise all forms of caffeine, a coffee mug is a great idea since it can be used for almost any drink. Plus the more mugs you own, the merrier and the less amount of dishes you have to do.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
