Giving gifts shouldn’t be a competition about who can shell out the most cash. In fact, some of the most thoughtful gifts are usually smaller, more personal pieces than splashy tech or designer handbags. So we’re excited to present our Under $50 Gift Guide, which is full of gifts for just about every person in your life.
With entertaining back in full swing, the hostesses-with-the-mostest in your life would love something to spruce up their collection. These striped tapered candles in beautiful color palettes would look lovely tied up in a bow, and Lex Pott’s instagram famous Twist candle is a perfect centerpiece. This confetti-colored small chopping block from Fredericks and Mae will help prep for many future cocktails and charcuterie boards. If you’re giving scented candles like these chic Maison Louis Marie ones, why not throw in a candle wick trimmer?
For the foodie friend, you can’t wrong with these addictive Fly By Jing Szechuan chili oils, which will keep their food spiced all year long. Le Creuset’s wine sleeve is a super practical gift that they’ll use forever, and it’s especially striking in the signature flame color.
The holidays are the perfect time to give a luxe little beauty gift, like this Christmas red Hermes nail polish. Pat McGrath’s lipsticks are a favorite here at ITG, and her lip gloss is in all of our purses. Necessaire, the luxury beauty brand for your body, has their signature Ritual regimen available in mini-sizing.
When in doubt, throw a monogram on it. LL Bean’s Boat and Tote bag is a classic for a reason, but you could go for family-inspired custom necklaces, too. Linen coasters and chic minimalist candles from Williams-Sonoma will satisfy just about anyone. Finally, this leather tech organizer will keep them tangle-free in 2022.
