Beautiful Life and Style

For: Him and Her under $50!


Today’s the last day of my formal gift guides (with a special surprise planned for tomorrow). I thought I would finish up by proving that you don’t need to spend a fortune to come up with a beautiful, thoughtful gift. All of these items are under 50 dollars!! So if you’re on a budget or just looking for a few extra stocking stuffers, there is still plenty to choose from.

A lot of inexpensive gifts sold during the holiday season SCREAM Christmas, so I’ve tried to include some items that aren’t just red green and silver. I’ve said before how much of a girl crush I have on Grace Coddington- her memoir hit stores recently and would be a great gift for anyone interested in fashion editorials.  Also, I’m realizing as I write this how drawn I am to semi precious stones- might have something to do with my 3rd grade rock collection! But c’mon- The agate coasters are trimmed in gold, and how great is that malachite bowl???

Nick has informed me that my gift guides for guys are a bit lacking- but what can I say, not EVERYONE wants to see a gift guide full of scuba diving gear and saltwater aquarium parts (90% of Nick’s presents for the past 4 years). That being said, I think that  most guys secretly dream of being Anthony Bourdain- and his book would be a great gift. And who wouldn’t love a martini shaker that also doubles as a recipe guide and drinking game all in one?! (Each die represents a different part of a drink- glass, alcohol, garnish, etc) It looks so fun- I might have to get one for myself 🙂  But if you are a guy reading this- feel free to add a comment on what you want for Christmas- you are all a mystery to shop for and us girls always appreciate new suggestions.
