Holiday Gift Guide: Under $100

7

Yes, it’s a bit too easy to give a candle as a gift, but this one smells so excellently of pine forest that anyone who goes for that sort of thing will adore it.

A grooved bread board that’s good for catching crumbs and generally looking cool.

This L.L. Bean log carrier is super-handy and so stylish.

A water-resistant Fjallraven backpack that comes in a multitude of colors.

This vase reminds me of old-school Coca Cola bottles.

Pot scrubbers aren’t the world’s sexiest gift, but how cute are these?

This puffer tote is so squishy-chic.

Nobody doesn’t like a gift from Le Creuset, and this cream and sugar set is just adorable.

A happy floral water bottle from Orla Kiely.

These Farmhouse Pottery mugs are so sturdy and attractive.

 

I love, love, love Maldon sea salt—it literally makes everything taste better—and this handy tin is small enough to fit in a handbag.

This Bose speaker is truly tiny—so many travel speakers really aren’t—and I dig the poppy orange.

    Great ideas! I hate clutter/extraneous stuff, so I love giving (and getting) nicer versions of everyday things, like the cute pot scrubbers you show here.

    I love all of these! I am buying for recent college grads who have just moved into apartments, so these are PERFECT!

    Thank you! I bought the oil diffuser stick version of that pine candle for a friend a year or so ago and have never been able to find it since. It really is the only tree scented thing that actually smells like a fresh pine tree. And yes, it is a great gift.

    I am definitely at the age where I like to (try to) give useful things rather than odd trinkets that become clutter. These are all great choices

    I carry a tin of Maldon Salt in my bag! My friends definitely tease me about it, but are always grateful when I can ‘jazz’ up something that could use it without having to ask for salt if it’s not already on the table. Maybe this year, they will get their own tin.

    The vases look like bongs, which is not necessarily a bad thing….

      I didn’t see that at all, but now I can’t un-see it.

    I’m so glad to see the Maldon on your list — confirms my choice to give these tiny tins to my entire staff this year, complete with a “seasoning’s greetings” message. (We have a thing for puns in my office.) Great ideas!
