If you’re anything like me this year, you’ve totally waited until the last minute to do holiday shopping and you’re on a serious budget. I wanted to assemble a gift guide of items I’d consider giving to others, but also, of things realistic, affordable and easy to purchase on a whim. From sexy undergarments to loud, pocket-sized sound speakers, you won’t find anything on this diverse list for more than $70.00!

Imagine a shaving utility designed for the on-the-go woman – a handheld 3-in-1 gadget that includes razors, a refillable water component and ultra moisturizing lotion, so that a busy lady can run to the restroom on a whim and take care of any hairy situations without a fuss. That’s why Sphynx was designed. The hefty tool is currently in the crowd-funding phase on Kickstarter. As a female with rare opportunities to take long, luxuriating baths, my fingers are crossed that this crafty creation comes to full fruition.
