Holiday Gifts: Under $50

Happy Monday!  Today we've gathered up a few favorite gifts, all of which are under $50.  We think some of these make the perfect last minute gift or stocking stuffer and we know yours truly (whomever that may be) will surely enjoy them!

Our first pick is for the athlete or runner that you know.  Designed to boost circulation and increase oxygen flow through the legs, runners are going wild for compression socks.  We've found a pair for under $50 for anyone you may know that is training for a race or just likes to be active.

SLS3 Compression sleeves, $44.95
For the globe-trotting fashionista that you're secretly afraid to shop for, you'll score big with the new book, The Eye Has to Travel.  Famed socialite and fashion editor to powerhouse publications Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, Diana Vreeland is once again immortalized through photographs and fashion spreads from the icon's most famous works.  The collection remembers the legendary editor's impact on fashion, her influence in photography, and her incomparable vision. 

Diana Vreeland the Eye Has to Travel, $35,
Who doesn't appreciate a perfect morning brew?  For the coffee lover in your life, give the gift of Illy coffee.  Trust us, they will love you.  Visit for gift ideas or to purchase ground or whole bean coffees and espressos.  As a bonus, they offer free shipping on any and all orders!

Illy 8 oz. ground espresso cans, $29-$32 for a set of 2. 

I know the three of us greatly appreciate cosmetics in our stockings.  It saves us from having to buy them ourselves, and the products generally last us the year, which means we can look forward to refills each Christmas.  This year, we've spotted the perfect eye color palette that includes colors appropriate for both work and play.  

Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color Palette, $48, Nordstrom
And last but not least, a man in cold weather must absolutely have a warm cashmere scarf.  I bought this for my husband on our first anniversary and he looks so sharp when he wears them.  Whether for your husband, boyfriend, brother or father,  have them looking just as sharp in this ultra warm and stylish scarf.
