It’s that time of year to shop for holiday gifts. In fact, I’m starting with items you can give to others, but you might also like receiving them too. Stay tuned, as I’ll be adding more guides this week. You can also shop for my gift guides in my LTK shop.

Gifts Under $100

The guide below is a mix of classics and a few unexpected goodies that will surprise and delight anyone on your list. Plus, they range in price, but—they’re all under $100!

This is a Gift guide for gifts for her that are under $100. Stanley cup, joggers, pajamas, slippers, jewelry, sweaters, totes, a book and puzzle.

1. Stanley Cup. This will be a sure hit for someone on your list! I have this size and aim for 2 refills a day. 2. A pine-scented Diptyque candle—for you or a lovely treat for someone special.

3. A weighted Nodpod: This is a gift for anyone seeking a soothing night’s sleep. Let me share something with you—I’m a big fan of weighted eye masks. They’re my go-to for those nights I can’t sleep. 4. Everyone likes comfy pajamas. 5. Ugg slippers are an all-time favorite holiday gift! Plus, this style is part of Nordstrom’s Black Friday deals.

6. The Vuori jacket and 7. Vuori joggers are favorites of mine, and many others too! I find them a perfect choice for lounging at home or when you’re on the go, whether it’s for travel or errands.

8. I’m a huge fan of Studio McGee, and I’m thrilled that Shea McGee has a new book out. I think it would be the perfect addition to any coffee table and is at the top of my wishlist.

9. The Monica Vinader crossover ring and 10. paperclip ring are popular designs that are sure to be favorites for someone on your list. Get it now while it’s on a limited-time sale! 11. Try giving an initial square travel jewelry box and 12. Crystal huggie hoop earrings.

13. While I love shopping for clothing at Tuckernuck, I found this puzzle in their gift section. I think this is perfect for someone who has it all who loves games,  puzzles, and fashion. 14. A monogrammed tote bag from Lands’ End makes a wonderful gift, whether you’re giving it or receiving it.

15. It’s cool to wear a baseball hat when you are off-duty. Choose to give a NY, LA or Paris hat from Anthropologie. 16. An all-time favorite cashmere sweater from Nordstrom. Make sure you get one for yourself too.
