20 Stylish Gift Ideas for Every Budget

20 Stylish Gift Ideas for Every Budget

Some years ago, I found myself frantically racing through a shopping mall, trying to find something to give my notoriously hard-to-please sister for Christmas. Then I had an epiphany: gift giving shouldn't be stressful. My family used to live in Mississippi, where they call a small gift a "happy," and suddenly it hit me, that's exactly what a present should be: a thing that makes its recipient smile. Like, "hey, I saw this and thought of you." As simple as that. With that philosophy, I've had no more panic attacks shopping for loved ones.

I've also recently focused on finding gifts that were domestically made (if not locally), and supporting independent designers. That said, I don't want to break the bank shopping for my friends and family — and this year neither you nor I have to. I've rounded up a ton of ideas for the folks on your list, including consumable goodies (wine, obviously), luxe loungewear, chic accessories, and lots more — most of which are locally designed and/or made. And best of all, everything here is under the $200 mark; I've sorted them from most affordable ($8 adorable nail decals) to most investment-worthy (a $199 headphones/leather case combo). So what are you waiting for, celebrate Small Business Saturday and check some things off your list starting now.
