It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not spooky season, though she's important too. But I'm talking about early holiday shopping season. Nothing brings joy quite like finding the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, so why wait until it gets really cold to do it, you know?

Sure, you may have to wait a little longer for the actual gift exchange, but that doesn't mean you have to wait to get your shopping done. Plus, when you do it early, you're calmer, more clear-headed, and can spot the best deals from a mile away.

That's why I've put together this list of holiday gifts under $50 that you'll want to score right now. It'll scratch that itch that says "Start shopping!" and genuinely give you a head start on crossing names off of your nice list.

Whether it's a cashmere beanie, manifestation candle, friendship bracelet, or secret fourth thing, I think there's something on this list that will catch your eye. Merry Happy!

Dolce Glow Luce Clear Self-Tanning Mist

Dolce Glow is an alternative to previous eras of widely-used, less-than-healthy approaches to achieving a sunless glow. The entire line is manufactured in Australia, which has rigorous standards for not just what goes into their products, but what is legally even allowed to. "We know how damaging the sun is," the founder told E! — anyone who grew up in the era of pre-at-home tanners can confirm that — which is why high-end ingredients without any "icky" components are integral to her line.

OffCourt Fragrance

Clean, neutral, and ever-so-woodsy, this light fragrance from OffCourt is perfect for any guy (or person's) gym bag, locker, or even desk.

'Tis the season to cozy up in these cute fall jackets from Avec Les Filles.
