The art of gift-giving is all about finding the balance of utility, quality, and joy (the tp pictured above totally counts). These gift ideas were curated with all of those things in mind without breaking the bank. Check out all of my favorite things under $100!
Gifts for Her
She’s sporty. She’s chic. She loves to cozy up at home with a cup of coffee after a warm workout. These gifts are for her!
With a ton of colors to choose from, this luxe Athleta sweater is the perfect layer for working out or lounging around. The cut is universally flattering and super cozy. Plus, Athleta has free and easy returns!
First of all, Madewell is a longtime favorite brand of mine. I love and live in all the loungewear, jeans, hair scarves, and accessories. I have a jumpsuit similar to this one that I travel in and have even gifted to a friend. One-piece outfits really make getting dressed easy so this cozy jumpsuit makes the perfect gift.
I know Wine Tumblers are not new, but this one has everything you know and love (vacuum insulated, stainless steel, double wall) plus new luxury touches. The ceramic lining solves the problem of the harsh metal taste you maybe too familiar with, and the cork base compliments all 5 of the high polish colors.
These high-waisted leggings are sustainable, sporty, and super freakin cute. The best part? For each sale, Wolven removes one pound of ocean waste.
From morning coffee to post workout, this cozy wrap jacket is a gift every woman in your life needs.
Gift for Him
He’s on the go. He’s classy. He appreciates a good steak and some Monday night sports. These gifts are for him!
Lululemon boxers are the one thing that he might not buy for himself, but once you get him in them he will be loyal to the lemon. Seriously!
Travel will return and when it does, help him travel in style! A travel wallet with room for your passport, cards, cash, and ID’s is necessary for frequent travel. This Tumi ID Lock Passport Case is tried and true and even has the option to add a monogram.
I put this under “gifts for him” but this really is for anyone in your life who would lose their head if it wasn’t connected. Next time your S.O. asks you where his xyz is, tell them to ask Tile.
There is no greater gift for the grill master in your life. I think a monogrammed steak is the equivalent to a monogrammed designer bag. Plus, the carving board made of sustainably harvested New England birch has a wall-mount for easy storing.
This cozy slipper is elite because of the indoor-outdoor sole. They provide all the comfort and utility of the Ugg moccasin without the price tag.
Okay this watch comes out to $109, but I think it’s the perfect everyday watch for him. This handsome blue face and mixed metal piece is clean, classic, and can be dressed up or dressed down.
They know all about the latest and greatest. His/her/their phone is always in hand. WFH is a way of life. These gifts are for them!
Since lots of us are working from home, zooming from the couch, learning from the dining room table, etc – this may be the best gift of 2020. This adjustable desk is perfect for working, writing, gaming, and so much more. With storage for every device, a phone stand, a foldable book stand and mouse-friendly material, this is the most useful gift of 2020!
There’s no time like 2020 to upgrade your sanitizing game! This phone sanitizing box kills microorganisms that wipes just won’t reach. A little spa moment for your phone that will put your mind at ease!
This home is for all your favorite devices to rest and charge up. Compatable with Airpods, Apple Watch, and Qi enabled Apple and Androiod smartphones.
Gift this to the person whose phone is always on 1% (me). This wireless power bank is the bedside charger that you can grab ‘n go.
Let’s face it. A cozy throw blanket is a foolproof gift. The key to a good throw is finding the balance of cozy and quality. Barefoot Dreams blankets, though over $100, really do live up to the hype because they embody comfort that lasts. Here are some front runners that are cozy, quality, and affordable.
Give the gift of a garden! With 5 different size options, this gift is ideal for anyone who lives in a city, loves fresh ingredients, and/or needs a little help with their green thumb.
This entertainment center has it all. The vintage-looking beauty plays everything including *but not limited to* vinyl records, AM/FM radio, and all your favorite Bluetooth enabled devices. It also comes in 5 classic wood finishes.
Charcuterie board will never go out of style. This tray (with knives included) makes the Instagram worthy cheese board achievable. Pro tip: pack a lunchbox of cheeses, fruits, crackers and wine in your pack and bring your charcuterie on the road to a local park or viewpoint!
This is the compact version of our beloved espresso bar which my beloved fiance has begun traveling with…a self-proclaimed coffee snob to the max. Ours is definitely *not* travel sized, but this compact beauty has a lot of the same features without sacrificing so much counter space or $$.
One beautiful thing that 2020 has elevated is at-home workouts and meditations. Gift this meditation cushion to inspire a meditation practice or elevate a zen den.
Puzzles and banana bread may have tied for most talked about items of 2020. This practical gift for puzzle lovers is the ultimate organizer and storage for your new favorite puzzles.
Handmade ornament by The Brooklyn Vibe
TBT to when we thought sold-out toilet paper across the nation was the weirdest part of 2020.. this one speaks for itself.
Full disclosure, I have no clue how this gadget works. And since we’re all spending a bit more time at home, it looks like a lot of fun to figure out.
