Holiday Gifts: $25 and Under

You don't have to spend a lot of money to give a fabulous gift.  We've rounded up some gifts under $25 that we know many of you would love to see in your stockings.  

First, pretty much everyone you know is in smart phone mode right now.  Why not give a new phone case?  We love the case by Kate Spade that states what is almost always on my annual New Year's resolution (and accomplished) list - plan an adventure.  We love this not so subtle reminder!  We also love this glittery iPhone case from J. Crew.

Next is the gift of custom letter press stationery.  To me, nothing is more formal than a gorgeous letterpress card with your personal name or note on it, and it's such an easy and thoughtful gift to give as well.  Letterpress stationery is pretty pricey, but we've found a gorgeous design on Etsy by Grayton Press to fit today's budget.  We love it.

Next up is the gift of salon hair every day!  Seriously, this Coconut Milk by Organix hair products is one of my newest obsessions and I'm so happy I caved in to my impulsive desire to try this product out.  The shampoo and conditioner leave a clean shiny head of hair that smells better than salon products.  I love it.

Another favorite stocking stuffer I love to give and receive is Essie nail polish.  With so many colors available, stock up on a few and package them up nicely for a colorful surprise.

And last but certainly not least, someone on your list is going to LOVE these conversation cards.  "If you could have any view from your back porch, what would it be?" "What was the most ridiculous but very cool fashion trend you ever followed?" These are the types of questions that are on these TableTopics conversation cards and they are so fun to bring to dinner parties or small get togethers.  Below are the original cards, but you can also have fun with topics narrowed by categories, such as 80's, Travel, Dinner Party, etc.  

Original Edition Table Topics, $25, amazon.com
