Holiday Gift Guides: Under $20

Working on a budget this year for Christmas?  Have some stuff to buy for folks that are special to you, but don’t want to break the bank doing it?

I’ve got a few cute ideas here, a lot of them center around eating.  Not sure what that says, but loving on these afforable options to show those special people you care this holiday season.

  1. Cheese Tray with Cutter – cute thing about this is that nifty little cutter.  All in one, perfectness.
  2. Wine Chiller – perfect for entertaining or a night alone!
  3. Beer Glasses – what dude doesn’t a set of beer glasses made from recycled windshields?
  4. Condiment Dish with Stand – everything about this is so cute.
  5. Tyler Candle – great gift for any lovely lady on your list.  Their scents are so unique and they last forever.
  6. Stoneware Vase – girls can’t have enough vases, very similar to our love for shoes.

Dish Duty

I’m not exactly sure why, but I like festive dish towels in my kitchen. I don’t always go ALL  OUT for holidays, but I do like to see those little decorative towels hanging there near my stove and sink. Here are some cute towels that could adorn my kitchen this year. They would make cute little gifts too.

  1. Crate and Barrel, Joy Dish Towel
  2. Amazon, Tag Whimsy Santa Dish Towels
  3. Crate and Barrel, Berries and Birds Dish Towel

The Toy Basket

With each birthday and holiday brings more and more toys into the house and I don’t know about y’all but the kiddo’s toys don’t necessarily only live in his room.  So I need something that goes with the decor in our house but hides the toys at the end of the day.  Here’s what I’ve been going with lately…storage baskets, hampers, etc.

  1. The Basket Lady, Round Storage
  2. Target, Brown Rectangular Trunk
  3. The Basket Lady, Narrow Log Basket
  4. Crate & Barrel, Sedona Hamper
  5. World Market, Marled Seagrass Cube

Where do all the cars and blocks and what not go at the end of the day at your house?

And the runner up is….

Runner!?!?  Baahahaha!  I crack my damn self up!

Anywho, I’m no Betty Crocker and my table isn’t always “set”, but I like to keep things looking pretty snazy.  AK and I were talking about investing in one of these.  I’m thinking a runner, some votive candles,  a few accents and my dinner table is good as new.

  1. Black Pier One – my fav, good for fall?
  2. Arabian World Market
  3. Garden Amazon
  4. Mexican Animal Pottery Barn
  5. Butterfly Pottery Barn
