Fashionable holiday gifts for under $50

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Some folks buy all their holiday gifts and wrap them by Thanksgiving weekend. Others wait until the spirit moves them to tackle Santa’s wish lists. Since I fall into the latter category, I appreciate reading other blogs that feature holiday gift ideas. I count on bloggers to give me great ideas and inspire me to shop. So, maybe something on my list of five fabulous items under $50 will end up under your tree this year:

Studded long leather glovesBrian Atwood, famous for his shoe designs, created these studded gloves for the limited edition Target-Neiman Marcus collection for $49.99. Styling women attracted to glamour with a modern edge will love these gloves;

Women’s leather strap bracelet: The Talley bracelet, decorated with crystal accents, gold studs, and gold links comes in four fun colors, and sells for $38. The Kate Carlyle Gift Boutique in Greenville, South Carolina also carries this item at a slightly higher price;

Men’s knit horizontal striped tie: Cool and casual, this retro thin tie from the Gap sells for $29.95. Choose from either grey and white or burgundy and blue horizontal stripes;

Sugar Bath lychee scented body lotion: Available at Sephora for $22.50, this ultra-moisturizing lotion is the antidote for dry skin;

Back up battery for iPhone.  Every iPhone addict will love this stocking stuffer. J Crew dressed the tiny device in polka dots for women and stripes for men.  $39.50 buys such peace of mind.
