Gifts Under $250 and Under $100 + Shipping Deadlines

by | Dec 11, 2020 | 2020 Gift Guides, Holiday Inspiration

Can you believe that it is officially 2 weeks until Christmas as of today? I know that many of us are starting to feel the rush of the season and trying to tackle our Christmas lists, if we haven’t already. I’ve gotten a lot of requests for gifts at different price points! Today, I’m sharing gifts under $250 and under $100 with you.

Below you’ll find some recommendations for each price category for her and him along with the full boutiques at the bottom as well as all the shipping deadlines you need to know!

Gifts Under $250

MZ Wallace Tote

This tote is high on my list! My dog tore the inside of mine & I’ve been wanting a new one ever since. It’s the perfect size. Plus, it’s foldable, rollable, packable, even crushable, and it will never lose its shape.

Barsys Smart Coaster System

Do you have a cocktail lover or entertainer you need to gift? THIS is the gift to give. Simply place the included mixing glass atop the Bluetooth-connected coaster, select your drink and follow the instructions on the Barsys Coaster app. The coaster changes color to signal when to start and stop pouring each ingredient.

Mason Digital Picture Frame

This tech-enabled digital picture frame displays all the memories you’ve captured on your smart device with intuitive syncing and unlimited storage. I love that you can gift it to a loved one and you can invite others to send photos straight to it. I’ve heard of lots of people getting this for their parents & then having other family members upload their pics to keep in touch!

Baby Alpaca Square Edge Cape

This one size fits all cape for her is something she wouldn’t buy herself but would love to receive! It comes in multiple colors and would be a great gift for a mom or mother-in-law.

Tumi Wallet

Replace his old wallet with a new one this year! I love that you can add a complimentary monogram to make it even more special.

Gifts Under $100

Hazen & Co. Silver Bracelet

I love shopping small & this bracelet from holiday collection with Hazen & Co. would make the perfect gift for any mom, sister, friend, etc in your life. It’s classic, timeless and will go with everything they already have.

Instant Vortex 6 Quart 4in1 Air Fryer

We got an air fryer during quarantine, and it really is worth the hype! There are so many amazing recipes you can make in no time. This is the perfect gift for someone who has everything. At $99, you can’t go wrong.

YSL Libre Eau de Parfum Spray

This perfume has been a reader favorite gift this year and would be a great gift for her! It’s the ultimate little luxury.  You can see more Little Luxury Gifts here.


Ember Mug² Temperature Control Smart Mug

For the coffee lover & person working from home, they will thank you for this temperature controlled smart mug! Ember maintains the chosen drink temperature for 1.5 hours so their hot beverage stays perfect.

SummerSalt Pajama Set

Get ready for the best sleep ever in these silky smooth and super luxurious pajamas. These best-selling Cloud 9 Silky PJ sets have a relaxed-fit and include an easy pull on elastic waistband and pockets!

The Sill White Orchid 

I recently discovered The Sill! Instead of sending traditional flowers that don’t last forever, they send house plants that your loved one can keep & care for. I love the idea of sending a gorgeous orchid or plant to someone long distance or that you won’t see in person. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Plus, they have other fun plant options to send as well at affordable prices!

Micro Brewed Kit includes carboy, air lock, bottle caps, IPA kit, siphon, capper, sanitizer, bottle filler, tubes, and carbonation drops.

Anything from Man Crates 

If you are still looking for a gift for the man in your life, get them something from Man Crates. These crates cover everything from how to make your own beer to hickory grilling and more. I’ve had so many of you say that this is such a unique gift that any age will love.
