Gift Guide: 20 Under $50

I thought I’d jump on the gift guides bandwagon and do a few gift guides in case you need some inspiration! I know when it comes to shopping, I love to see what my fellow bloggers are giving (and receiving!) because oftentimes, I spot stuff I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. So whether this guide serves as help for your holiday shopping or simply a gift for someone that you love after the holidays have passed, I hope that you enjoy my roundup of 20 faves under $50.

    Great selection. But love the first one you’ve picked most. Totally fits in with the holiday season to get a stamp with a reindeer on it :)

    I love the Garance Dore print. I am going to get one for my wife she loves that style of art. The list was so well balanced too of different things. The complementary colors and shapes of 19/twin triangle necklace from artsy modern 20/German glitter ornaments was also great. Thank you!!

    I like the baskets :). Never too much of storage items, I think.
    BY the way, if you are interested in Finnish designproducts made by artisans in Nepal, there is a giveaway in my blog.

    I really LOVE that little rubber stamp, very cute – also the Martha boxes, Liberty ‘kerchiefs’ and the glittery ‘MERRY.’ I have not done any shopping yet, so I have to get in gear!! soon!! ;-)

    Beautiful collection, Holly! I really love your Decorate Workshop the most! I’m getting this after I return to Australia next week.

    By the way, a hand-painted portrait is also a very cool and meaningful gift, and I’ve got a step-by-step tutorial on how to use iPhone apps to help with making one. It took me only 2 hours or so to paint one.

    Perhaps one day I can send you a portrait of your new baby as a gift?

    What a lovely selection, but the one that really stands out to me is that Deer stamp/globe ornament. It’s such a quirky yet simple idea, and rather ingenious I think!
