Gifts Under $50

From your hairdresser to your roomie who deserves an extra call-out just for being awesome, these gifts under $50 are the perfect way to say “thanks,” without breaking the bank.

Tastemakers’ Pick: The Boho Chic Multi-Color Tassel is about as versatile as it gets. In addition to dressing up a bedroom door or dresser knob, this pretty tassel can be used to dress up a coffee table or hung as art.

Gifts Under $100

Extended friends and family members (we’re looking at you, second cousins removed!) don’t need to be left off this year’s gift list with these chic finds under $100.

Tastemakers’ Pick: With its cool, retro graphic and informative subject matter, the Piggie Meat Chart is the gift we want to give out in multiples! Home cooks and grillers alike will love the low-key whimsy this piece will lend to a kitchen or dining room.

Gifts Under $250

Have someone splurge-worthy in your life? (Yes, that includes yourself!) These gifts under $250 are the perfect way to let that special someone know they’re on your irreplaceable list.

Tastemakers’ Pick: With a “stand by you” vibe that seriously melts our hearts, Willa Heart’s Camden and Carolina Print is the kind of piece you could gift just about anyone special in your life. Plus, is anything chicer than cheetah print? We think not.

For the Art Collector

It’s no secret that art collectors love to be in the know. Our tastemakers’ art picks includes new names and vintage finds from little-known makers, so you can majorly impress (without dropping a fortune).

Tastemakers’ Pick: Josh Young Design House’s “Emma” Mixed Media Painting is equal parts classic and cutting-edge, meaning it’s perfect for collectors of both vices. It’s also an accessible  enough to be a collection kickstarter for a young art enthusiast.

For the Hostess

Hosting is truly a labor of love, so we love a hostess gift that straddles the line between token and splurge.

Tastemakers’ Pick: The Wildwood Stirrups Brass Tray is the next best thing to gifting your hostess actual Hermès (which FYI, we totally encourage). All-brass construction means this tray will feel like an instant heirloom, while its size makes it perfect for adorning virtually any coffee table.

For the Globetrotter

The best way to ensure that your jet-setting bestie brings you back a bottle of that Italian EVOO and a box of those French Madelines? One of our chic picks for the globetrotter, of course!

Tastemakers’ Pick: Yes, the Mid-Century Brass Globe Cigarette Holder’s original use might be a bit passé, but that doesn’t mean this brass globe isn’t still très chic! The perfect size for zhushing up a desk, this globe’s inner compartment can be used for stashing headphones, phone cords, or flash drives.

For The One Who Has Everything

We all know her—the one we look to for everything from fashion advice to dining hot spots. So, how do we gift her something chic and unique? Well, we personally let our tastemakers take the lead…

Tastemakers’ Pick: What happens when decor and fashion collide? That would be the Soukie Clutch. Just about the chicest bag we’ve ever scene, these clutches are crafted from vintage Moroccan rugs and blankets. For best results, gift with a caftan.
