stovetop espresso maker ($50) / bloody mary kit ($40) / iphone case ($40) / metallic clutch ($48)
arrow bangle ($39) / dangly earrings ($34) / yummy candle ($29)
pretty candle ($28) / calendar ($26) / serving bowl ($36)
sourdough starter kit ($30) / elephant lamp ($50) / cashmere gloves ($50)
Last week, I shared my gift guide under $25, and today I’m unveiling my slightly-more-luxe picks under $50 (it sounds so grand that way, right?). I didn’t really “get” cashmere until a friend bought me my first pair of cashmere gloves, and now I love spreading the cozy-soft warmth. The wheat-colored pair from Gap goes with almost every winter coat, so it’s a safe bet color-wise. For the foodie and drinkie (?) set out there, the gourmet Bloody Mary and sourdough starter kits are so fun- kind of like toys for adults. I bought the stovetop espresso maker for the husband a few Christmases ago, and I love how well it’s held up to weekend use.
For the glam gal in your life (because there’s one in every group…), I’m a fan of the Kate Spade champagne-themed iPhone case. So cute! And you can’t go wrong with a glitzy clutch, especially with New Year’s Eve around the corner. A friend recently introduced me to Stella & Dot, and they have several beautiful pieces that I know would appeal to my girlfriends (see the dangly earrings and arrow bangle).
So tell me- what do you think? Are any of these going to make it onto your gifting (or your own) list this year?
