MoS Washington and I have to admit that we have probably been a little bit spoiled when it comes to stocking stuffers, as Santa has always shopped year-round to find just the perfect gifts to fill up our stockings. You won't find any oranges or apples or walnuts taking up valuable stocking space in our stockings! And we have to admit that when flipping through the delightful "Gift Guides" in December magazines, the gifts under $50 excite us the most! These gifts are proof that you can give a gift that is thoughtful, creative, and unique without breaking the bank.
Here are some of our favorites:
Gifts for Her:
Bright bangles are a fun accessory any time of the year! This is definitely something you find in your stocking on Christmas morning that you end up wearing all day long! We'd pair this pink and red striped bangle with a cashmere sweater, jeans, and some comfy ballet flats.
Leave it to Tory Burch to find a way to make rainy days more fun! Her navy and white 3T Umbrella is small and compact so it easily fits into your bag, and of course, like all things TB, it is so cute!
Even in the age of Outlook, BlackBerries, and iPhones, a cute, paper calendar is hard to beat. It's nice to be able to jot down notes, and almost all of us probably write some things on our calendars that we don't necessarily want any coworkers or the IT guy to be able to access!
These leather business card cases are the perfect solution to that stack of cards that is always floating around in my bag. These cases would also be perfect to use as a little wallet with a clutch, like MoS Washington did with her silver cigarette case here.
Sometimes you just need a new keychain! I carried the same silver Tiffany one from my 16th birthday until recently when I replaced it with a needlepoint keychain from Smathers & Branson.
Maybe we are getting old, but now the thought of getting new slippers for Christmas makes us pretty darn happy! Especially when they look like adorable ballet flats and come in such fun colors!
Every girl loves fun hair accessories!
Beauty products are always a welcome gift. Lipglosses seem to always disappear, so it never hurts to have a few more. And Jo Malone is our go-to fragrance designer of choice.
LL Bean Wicked Good Moccasin, $49.50
Every guy needs a Leatherman tool (or three!). They are so compact and useful- I think my husband has one in every jacket pocket, every vehicle, etc. Pliers, a knife, a bottle opener, wire cutters, all rolled into one handy dandy package!
