Gift Guide: 20+ Gifts for Coworkers Under $30

Popular blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares 20+ Gifts for Coworkers under $30


Happy Friday friends! Did we all survive Cyber Week? I did, but I’m not sure I can say the same for my wallet! If you can’t tell by the time this post is being published, my week has been WAY thrown off by the cyber sale madness. To say I’m ready for a normal week next week would be an understatement!

One of the most requested gift guides this year was a gift guide for coworkers or an office gift exchange. And, when I think about it, pre-blogging, this would be the gift guide I would find most useful too! Office gift exchanges can just be awkward. Any other year you may just resort to a gift card. But, this year, I’m here to help you find a gift that’s a bit more creative! Below, you’ll find over 20 gifts that are perfect for an office gift exchange. In the collage, I’ve rounded up gifts based on “type” of recipient. Whether you’re shopping for the office coffee addict (that was me!) or the silent thinker, I’ve got you covered! And, better yet, all of these gifts are under $30!

The Cozy Gift Guide

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares The Cozy Gift Guide


Happy Thursday everyone!

Today, we are starting our Gift Guide series! That’s right, more holiday content coming your way. About two weeks ago, I asked for your help in determining what gift guides you all would like to see. I got a lot of requests for general gifts for your friends, family (siblings, in-laws, parents etc), significant others as well as office gift exchanges. So, every week leading up to the big day, I will be releasing a new themed gift guide. In addition, you can find general gifts for “him, her, in-laws, decor, beauty” etc listed under the Holiday tab. I will have specific gift guides for some of these categories, but in case you wanna get a jump start on your shopping or want more ideas, you can head here (FYI these will be updated tonight, and I’ll add to them throughout the season!).

For this post, I’ve rounded up the perfect items to give to your favorite homebody in my cozy gift guide! These gifts would be perfect for a girlfriend, sister, mom/MIL or friend! I’ve gathered up some top picks in the collage below as well as more items under that. I’m detailing my favorites under the collage in case you need help deciding!

And, as a reminder, Thanksgiving is ONE week from today (what?!?!). In case you missed it, you can find 10+ outfits that are perfect for Turkey Day here. Many are eligible to order online for in store pick up so you can get them before the holiday!

Boots | Hat | Candles | Blanket | Fleece | Pajamas | Slippers | Snowflake Mugs | Mug Warmer | Nespresso | Josie Maran Body Scrub | Sephora Sheet Masks | Cardigan

  1. Nespresso with Aeroccino: Hands down, the best Christmas gift I ever got was my Nespresso! I got it last year from my parents and use it everyday. It’s definitely a bit pricier, so this would make the perfect group gift or splurge for yourself. But, it will pay for itself! I only get coffee out a few times a month now, and I look forward to using it every morning. It literally brightens my day! And, it ships Prime 😏. I found these super cute mugs to go with it, but if you follow me on the gram, you also know I LOVE these mugs. You can get 15% off the ones from Etsy with code INSTA15.
  2. Faux Fur Blanket: Cozy and oh so chic, this blanket travels with me from room to room! It’s under $30 + Prime ship so makes for the perfect, affordable gift. It’s very luxe and feels much pricier than it is! Plus, if you live in the North, you can never really have too many blankets, am I right?!
  3. Face Masks: No self-care night is complete without a face mask! These would be perfect to give as a gift to your best girl or girlfriend. They also would be great to divide up among friends and give as separate gifts. Sephora has a ton of great beauty gift sets that would be great to divide up this way to get the most bang for your buck!

What’s on your wishlist this holiday season? I’m eyeing up this cozy cardigan – I heard it’s like wearing a cloud. Sign me up!

And, because we are nearing the biggest shopping week(s) of the year, a reminder that you’ll be able to find Black Friday + Cyber Monday sales guides under the “Holiday” tab on my blog. These days can be very overwhelming, so let me be your guide! I’ll have a roundup of sale picks from our favorite retailers as well as a list of the sales happening at most major stores! Thank you all for shopping through my links this holiday season! The small commission I make from your purchases helps to keep this blog going, and I appreciate it more than you know!

September Instagram Roundup – Top 10 Blog Bestsellers

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


Hello & Happy Wednesday peeps!

It is officially October (how, I swear July was yesterday?!). Time flies when you’re shopping the good deals and enjoying the beautiful Minnesota Fall weather! 😋

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog bestsellers roundup. And, I know you all have loved them in the past, so I thought it was time to start them up again! If you’re new around here, I’m rounding up the top 10 bestselling items with blog readers/Instagram followers for the month of September! Some of these will be old faithfuls (like these leggings), but some are new finds like this $15 blanket scarf. $15! Need I say more?

Without further ado, the top 10 bestselling items for September:


  1. Spanx Leggings: These leggings were a huge hit this month. Maybe it’s because I wear them constantly (see below for evidence). Or maybe, it’s because they’re the perfect mix of comfy and chic. I’m willing to bet both! I waited to grab these leggings for almost a year because of the price tag. Faux leather leggings can’t possibly be worth that price, right?! Wrong! I’m now deciding which version to get next that’s how much I love them! They look like real leather more so than my budget friendly faux leather leggings, and they suck you in at all the right places. I suggest sizing up one size unless you want some serious tummy control! Wearing size S here for reference (normally XS/0/25 in leggings & pants). You can also find them in a petite version here (eeek!!!) and a more budget friendly option I also own here.

2. Loft Bar-Back Sweater: One of my favorite purchases recently, this bar-back sweater was also one of the most purchased items this past month! The color just screams fall and, even at full price, it’s affordable! I’ve styled it a few ways because the color is so versatile. It looks great with denim and olive colored pants! If rust-brown isn’t your style, it also comes in a light pink color. I’m wearing a SP here & it fits TTS (comes in regular & petite sizes).

3. Amazon Henley: This best-selling item is actually the budget friendly version of the top I’m wearing below. But, I have several blogger friends who own the Amazon version and love it! Safe to say, it’s a good dupe! Coming in under $20 + prime shipping it’s really a no brainer. This style is perfect for lounging and wearing out on the weekends! It looks equally cute on it’s own or with a scarf. There’s also a ton of ways to style it – unbuttoned and tied, tucked in, untucked or undone like a cardigan. As with all Amazon items, I suggest reading the reviews to ensure you get the size that’s best for you!

4. Amazon Blanket Scarf: I feel like I hit the jackpot with this $15 scarf! Not only is it prime eligible, but the quality shocked me! I also own it in the blue version, but really like this red and brown version for Fall. It seems to go with everything and is easy to wear as a regular scarf or as a wrap! Like I said in my capsule wardrobe post, a blanket scarf is a Fall staple so picking up this budget friendly one is a must!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


5. Cardigan: Another piece from my capsule wardrobe collection, this burnt-orange cardigan has been a best-seller for several months. It’s perfect for layering and comes in tons of colors. So, if you’re like me, you buy all the colors considering it’s only $49! This one doesn’t come in petite sizes; however, I found that sizing down one does the trick. I’m wearing a XXS here and normally would be a XS in sweaters (SP in petite!)

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


6. Zella Leggings: My Zella leggings were another hot item on the blog in September! They feel like Athleta or Lululemon quality for about half the price ($58). They’re not see through and have been yoga tested by yours truly! If you’re looking for an even more budget friendly alternative, these $25 leggings from Amazon gave the Zella ones a run for their money! Both leggings fit TTS (wearing XS in both for reference). Neither come in petite, unfortunately, but given they’re high waisted the bunching on the ankles wasn’t bad enough for me to return them.

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


7. Aerie Sweatshirt: Are we sensing a theme here? Seems that you all love your comfy clothes as much as I do! My mom & dad could certainly attest to my love for comfy clothes given the hoard of sweatshirts I kept on the back of my door in high school 😂. This sweatshirt does not disappoint! In my opinion, it’s the equivalent of the light pink sweatshirt that you all loved from the Spring & Summer! It’s budget friendly (under $50) and is made to wear over leggings – longer in back. It’s comes in a few colors, I have the Koko Brown color here but also love the plum color! I’m wearing an XS and suggest sizing down one if you’re looking for a tighter fit. It’s definitely oversized!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


8. Loft Pocket Cardigan: Not to reference another post for the third time (lol), but remember when we discussed the Pantone color report in the capsule wardrobe post? This is one of the “trendy” colors for Fall! Shocked? I was too! Fall to me is all about muted browns, greens and reds. Purple? You probably belong in Spring. But, think again! This color is one of the big ones for Fall and is a great way to bring a brighter feel into the gloomy months ahead! This cardigan is ridiculously soft and is perfect for layering! It fits TTS (wearing SP) and comes in regular, petite AND plus sizes!!! Hurry if you want this one though, last time I checked sizes were flying off the shelf. See, told you it was a trend worth noting! 😉

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


9. Loft Tweed Hoodie: Another trend that’s big this Fall is tweed. And I love this casual take on the trend! This sweatshirt is the perfect weight for these transition months and is one that is easy to wear out without feeling “frumpy”. It would look equally cute paired with jeans and booties. Coming in under $70 it’s definitely on the pricier side but, in my opinion, worth every penny considering you can dress it up or down! I’m wearing a XS here and it fits TTS (works for regular & petite!)

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


10. Abercrombie Fleece: And last, but certainly not least, is the infamous Abercrombie Fleece. This has been a popular item since it first appeared on my Instagram 2 months back or so. It really reminds me of my North Face for a few reasons. It’s a slimmer fit (not oversized, like this fleece). And, it’s cozy but also stylish. However, it’s a fraction of the price of what a North Face would be! It comes in about 5 colors including a really pretty olive and white one. I’m wearing an XS here and would say to size up if you want more of an oversized fit!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


And, in case you’re curious, a majority of you do your shopping at Nordstrom, Loft, Amazon, American Eagle & Abercrombie. All great quality retailers that are also budget friendly!

Out of these bestsellers, what was your favorite?

See you all Friday for a post on my skincare routine! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one!
