Holiday Gift Ideas for Stylish Friends and Family

Holiday Gift Ideas for Stylish Friends and FamilyThis week I’ve been trying to mentally prepare myself for the shopping frenzy that will occur on Friday. My holiday list is long and sadly, my budget is small, so I am getting extra creative! Each year, I search for interesting, unusual and useful holiday gift ideas for my stylish friends and family that will please each recipient and not break the bank.

This year I’ve found some fabulous, stylish pieces that are guaranteed to please the people on my list, and I hope yours, too!

Holiday Gift Ideas for Stylish Friends and FamilyMy list started with my oh-so-chic mother. Although I aspired to an Hermès scarf in an equestrian pattern, with price tags of approximately $375, I needed to find a more reasonable alternative.

At Travel Smith I found a fabulous silk scarf in a beautiful pattern that I know she will just adore (pictured). Same vibe, and for only $45!

Next, my sister in law in Boston is only person I know who owns a larger collection of accessories than I do! One of this season’s oversized necklaces was just the thing.

A quick trip to Overstock and I found this gorgeous Maddy Emerson necklace made of genuine freshwater pearls with gemstones like red agate, agate, and tear shaped quartz at the incredible price of only $39.99 (down from $160.91 – a savings of 80%!).

Holiday Gift Ideas for Stylish Friends and FamilyFor my BFF, a die-hard Vera Bradley collector, I found a Jewelry Box, perfect for traveling at a budget-friendly $35.

Finally, my hard-to-shop-for aunt (you probably have one, too) really needs nothing, has no room for any home-related gifts, and is always on a diet! My solution is this elegant Galleria Auto Super-Mini Umbrella with a scene from Paris. Weighing only 1 lb., 3 oz. this is a convenient and lovely gift. I found this all over the Internet, from $24.
