Under $30 Gift Guide

What type of gift giver are you? I try to give fun and practical gifts because that's what I like to receive. I don't think the price matters so long as there is thoughtfulness and purpose. Here are some of my luxe for less picks. Which one of these would you want for yourself?

1. Best Day Ever Mug
2. Sézane Mini Candle Set
3. Ban.do 17 Month Classic Agenda
4. Topshop Disco Ball Keyring
5. Hello Beautiful Small Tray
6. & Other Stories Punk Bouquet Gift Set
7. Charbonnel et Walker Holiday Dark & Milk Chocolate Box
8. Nate Berkus Elephant Decorative Tray
9. Fossil Printed Wristlet
10. Kate Spade NY Polka Dot Reusable Shopping Tote
11. Garance Doré Love Style Life

I think planners are THE perfect under $30 gifts. What a lovely list, Rowena!

Ok, that disco ball keyring is fabulous! Honestly this is such a nice relief. I've only started with the shopping and man it's getting to be super $$$$$$. I need to rethink some gifts now.

I need the "I am very busy" Agenda, so I can just hold it up when my husband enters, inquiring about his socks or the likes.

I like your gift ideas, Rowena! Usually I ask what others want so that everyone is happy and it's much easier for me. But sometimes you have to come up with ideas and it's not always that easy. I agree that the price doesn't matter, as long as you did it with love and care. Have a nice day, Rowena! xo


Jane said...

Love these! Such great items and under $30 :)

Lena L said...

You're my favorite curator on the web, Rowena!

I usually stick with gift cards or cash. LOL. But, I think something that has a touch of luxury yet functional would be the best choice if I am to give an actual gift to someone. Your picks are all about that, it seems! :)
