Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Gifts Under $50

It probably seems like just yesterday that it was spring and we all thought that it”ll be such a long time until the holidays hit. Well, they’re now here and sometimes, we just honestly don’t know what to give to those around us. More ever, we often don’t want to spend a vast amount of money. Here is a gift guide of suggestions that’ll hopefully inspire gift ideas or even possibly cause the thought “That’d be perfect for them!” All gifts are under $50.*

*Excluding shipping and taxes.


1. Kirks Folly Fairy Wishes Charm Necklace($32.50)

2. Beatles Coffee Set of 2($12.99)

3. Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington($19.21)

4. Native Union Pop Phone Handset($35)

5. Stila ‘All Is Bright’ Lip Glaze Set($25)

6. Fold Over Cupcake Notes($10)

7. Oscar de la Renta Rollerball Trio Gift Set($49)

My Opinion:

Let’s take a look at my perspective on each item, one by one. Here we go! 1. Kirks Folly may not be as well known as other jewelry brands, but it’s one of few I will continuously support. I think their pieces are so very unique and I know from owning some that they stay in good condition over time. Also, they’re often affordable! 2. As a lover of The Beatles, I loved seeing this in stores. It depicts Abbey Road. For those interested in other takes on The Beatles for cups, Target does have other designs. 3. If you love fashion or know someone who does, this book will be great. Grace Coddington is absolutely brilliant and this is on everyone’s must-read list lately. 4. If you have yet to hear of these phone handsets, now you are! These are quickly gaining popularity for their retro and quirky style. They come in many different colours, which is a definite perk. The only side note I’d offer is that this seems like a product people either love or hate. 5. Stila can have some pretty great beauty products and this is a fantastic price for what you get! On top of that, I love how many shades the set offers. 6. I first learned of Dylan’s Candy Bar after watching Tia & Tamera. It looked like such a cool place! I came across these notes while on their site. So cute and definitely nice for cupcake lovers. 7. Last but not least, I am in full support of this OdlR gift set. I’ve smelled, and have, many of his fragances. I have yet to find one I don’t like. These not only are great for any OdlR fan or a lover of elegance, but good for on the go.

…happy shopping!
