I often find myself in the situation where I want to get a friend, coworker or family member (think sister-in-law) a present but do not want to buy them something extravagant or by them something where they feel they have to reciprocate. Sometimes these gifts even have a price limit to them making the “what do I get them” process even harder. Well luckily for you I rounded up some fabulous items under $30! (a lot are even under $20!)
I find that the best presents (especially for someone you do not know very well/ do not know their size very well) is a gift that is one size fits all (think accessories). This clutch fits that bill perfectly. It comes in three different colors- red, yellow, and blue. Its perfect for all the holiday and NYE parties so they are sure to use it.
I lately have been addicted to scarves. I find that they dress up any outfit and keep you warm! Thats a strong win in my book. I personally love this center stripe scarf that is blush, grey and ivory. But there is also a cute blue stripe infinity scarf for that person that constantly struggles to tie a scarf. Best part is both are on sale! If neither of those are your style click here for more scarves!
I love a good poncho (or wrap whichever you like to call it) and they make especially great presents since they are my favorite one size fits all. I found a bunch under $30 at Nordstrom. This large grid ruana is ivory, black and gray aka great for your friend out there who really just prefers to wear neutrals. Another great neutral is the geo block ruana which is brown, black, grey and cream.
Another classic accessory present- the beanie. This year there are some really cute affordably priced ones that I love. Personally this cable knit one with the cute faux fur pom pom on top is to die for, comes in three colors and is only $15. Or this cute black and white one with a yarn pom pom on top!
