10 Holiday Gift Ideas under $75


I always need suggestions for Christmas Gifts, especially those under $75.

Small tokens of appreciation, stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gifts, girlfriend and holiday hostess gifts.

 I thought I might share some of my favorite Holiday Gift finds with all of you.

$49.99

Buy here 12/1: www.neimanmarcus.com

I love these Derek Lam Slippers from the brilliant collaboration between two of my favorite retailors, Neiman Marcus and Target.  All the items are available in stores and on line Saturday, December 1st.  I could actually do all my shopping in one swoop by visiting the site, but if I had to narrow it down to one item, it would be these magnificent leopard slippers.

$18

 I love this heart bowl.  Perfect for a key drop or place to throw you jewelry when you take it off each night, or a bowl for nuts. This sweetheart of a gift is available at Jayson Home, a favorite Chicago based store of mine.  I remember when Jayson Home opened and was primarily a garden and flower store,  now it’s grown into huge retail, on line and catalog success.

$30

Buy them here: www.gardeshop.com

It is always great to have some chic and beautiful hand towels in your powder room.  A great gift because it’s a little luxury you might not allow yourself.  I love these Fouta Turkish Towels from Garde.   Garde is a great store filled with uniquely curated home goods, textiles, jewelry and other treasures that you won’t find any place else.  If you are an Angeleno’s pop by the store on Beverly Blvd. at Vista, it’s a beautiful shop.

$50

Buy it here: www.shop.gardeshop.com

Another item I love from Garde is this gorgeous brass bottle opener.  This one is the “Eclipse” and it was designed by Osi Masanori for Futagami.

It will look beautiful on any bar and it’s another one of those useful, “so glad to have it” things you will use all the time.

$29.95

Buy it here: www.cb2.com

I adore these pig book ends from CB2.  Great for any room and any age.

The price is right too.

$68

Buy it here: www.anthropologie.com

The “Love” pillow from Anthropolgie will look great on any sofa, chair or bed.  It’s 20×20 and made of wool crewel work over a paint by number “love” cut out on front and flower scene on back.  The pillow was created by artist Trey Speegle who has done many other items for Anthropologie, including dishes which I received a few years back from my ultra chic mother in law.

$22

Buy it here: www.heathceramics.com

Stuck for an idea?  You will never fail with a Heath Ceramic Bud Vase.

I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t adore this little gem of a vase.

$49.50

Buy it here: www.jcrew.com

Color Block madness continues with this number from JCrew.

I love the hot pink and camel colors.  You can pop this into your large everyday bag or use it on it’s own as a clutch.

Super Cute.

$75

Buy it here: www.harbingerla.com

This Sister Parrish tissue holder is nothing to sneeze at and if you live in LA pop into Harbinger, the awesome showroom and home to Lucas Interiors where they carry them.  Honestly, I detest a kleenex box sitting out, so if you need to have a tissue nearby at least the box will be styling!

I’d love to hear your gift ideas!

Happy Shopping!

Jack Rogers Better Than Ever

Once a prep always a prep.  No matter how hard I have tried to shake it, my preppy tendencies start coming back and I want to monogram something or get a pair of Jack Rogers Sandals. I’ve been wearing these sandals since the beginning of time, so imagine my happiness when I discovered a new take on them at Anthropologie. The sandals are jellies, so I can wear my Jack’s to the pool and beach!

Brilliant.

 I then hit the Jack Rogers website for a little more shopping and discovered that LA Artist, Kenny Scharf  had done a limited edition Navajo style sandal and a tote bag for the brand.

The color combinations are amazing and the tote bags are fun too.

My favorite tote is the one with the doughnut on the front…now that’s the kind of carb I want to indulge in.  It won’t make me fat, just fashionable.

I love this monogrammed version, especially the orange.

The Santa Fe Style is a great alternative to the Navajo.

Style icon Jackie O made these sandals a go to staple of the Palm Beach/Resort set.  The Navajo style has been kicking around since the early 60’s, just a little longer than me. Today, the Jack Rogers company is still going strong and the shoes are still hand made in Florida.  I love the history and tradition of the shoe and I plan on keeping that tradition going by buying a pair for my daughter.

Once a prep always a prep.
