Did you love our “Under $25” Gift Guide? Now it’s time for those bigger gifts. We’re keeping ‘em all under $100.
First, let’s take care of mom, ‘cause mom’s the best.
Perhaps you want to pamper her with some Jo Malone bath oil? $25
Or the coziest, yummiest, feel-good-every-time-you-sink-your-feet-in slippers from Ugg? $99.95
Or this luxe blanket if she’s the type that’s always cold. Cozy things never get old. $98
Or something pretty. Like a clutch. If she likes to get dressed and go out, perhaps this Iridescent Envelope Clutch is for her. Or, if she’s all work and no play she might appreciate this Velvet Laptop Clutch more.
And if you think she’s the type that prefers something not-so-personal, but perhaps something that will make the home smell sweet, she may appreciate a diffuser (I bet that’s something she doesn’t already have).
This Room Surround Scent Diffuser, also by Jo Malone, is a bit pricey, but it’s been recommended as “Worth the splurge! It lasts the entire year!”
Ah, you say you think she’d like something for the kitchen? Rising: The Book of Challah is a great gift for any women. Whether they bake or don’t bake, it’s inspiring!
Now let’s get practical.
Ok, we hear, so you have a really practical person in your life. Well, there’s always another room that needs a Kosher Lamp.
And if they have a smartphone, you better believe they’d appreciate more battery life. Imagine if your battery always said 100%?!?
This Smart Battery Case from Apple charges your phone all day.
In our post on “15 Gifts We Love (for Everyone!) for Under $25,” we recommended the Tile Anything Finder. If you love the idea of the Tile, but want a more significant gift, you can pair it with this Herschel Supply Co Tile Leather Key Chain, or get a 2-pack or a 4-pack of Tiles. Because most of us are capable of losing more than one thing.
Ok, enough practical. Let’s get back to pampering.
And did you ever meet anyone who doesn’t love some foam to top off their coffee? That foamy milk is an affordable luxury. But you need to get them an Aeroccino first so they can escape and enjoy those coffee moments.
Cappuccinos go well with waffles, no? Belgian waffles? But to enjoy Belgian waffles, they’d first need a Belgian Waffle Maker.
A cappuccino also goes very well with a good book. A Kindle E-Reader is a great gift (the Paperwhite version, available here, is pricier). If buying a Kindle for kids, you can set parental controls so there’s no internet capability…just books to read! (Keep in mind that Special offers means sponsored ads as a screensaver when the Kindle is idle).
Now for the kids, because it’s always about the kids.
And if any of yours is going through a Lego phase (and if they’re not, they probably will be soon), this 1500 piece XXL Builders Lego Kit is the ultimate. It’s so much more practical than those “build once” sets. There’s so much they can create.
And you know those kids that choose Lego sets only because they like the little Lego people? Get ‘em a Lego set that’s just full of people.
Ok, onto bigger kids. The Instax is the Poloroid of today. It doesn’t take digital pic, rather, it prints pics instantly. Such fun. Great for the girl who loves scrapbooking. Snap carefully!
Some people like to give experiences or activities rather than actual “things.”
Kids might like a loaded up a Dave & Busters Gift Card in the denomination of your choice (if you live near one of the nationwide locations).
Or, perhaps an adult you know would like the gift of a new skill? Give a gift card to a specific class at MasterClass or let them choose.
How about a book? Check out our book recommendations.
