Top 10 Holiday Gifts for Her – Under $100!

The holiday season is upon us and the mad dash has begun for fabulous last minute gifts. If you’re looking for a little something special, but not too pricey, for your mother, daughter, sister or best friend, then we’ve got the goods for you!

All of these items will help her to look good and feel good – in style – without pinching your pocketbook.

1. La Mer Lip Balm $50
This intensely hydrating and reparative balm is formulated with the same Miracle Broth™ used in the famous face cream. It soothes on contact, softens roughness and repairs seriously dry lips. It has an appealing scent and taste, and the small container should last at least six months.

2. The Honest Company Body Oil $9.95
One of the newest offerings from Jessica Alba’s eco-friendly company, this organic, non-greasy oil leaves skin soft and hydrated. Made with Olive, Jojoba, Tamanu and Sunflower oils, it’s gentle enough for babies and everyday use.

3. Diptyque Baies Candle $28-$90
Our favorite candle from the chic Parisian brand on Boulevard Saint Germain. All it takes is a few minutes for the heady scent of roses and blackcurrent to waft through your home or office when you burn this beauty. We’re especially fond of the Baies Noire – the limited edition large black colored glass version.

4. Michael Kors Astor Buckle Bangle $95
A little bit of bling is always an enchanting gift, and Michael Kors knows how to do it in affordable style. This shiny studded bangle has the Michael Kors logo engraved detailing, a stackable silhouette and buckle closure. A stand-out on its own, or mixes well with other bracelets.

5. Fresh Sugar Soiree Lip Treatment Collection $65
A party for your pout, this is the ultimate Sugar stash! Whether you’re looking to protect, correct, tint or moisturize your lips, there’s something for everyone is this yummy collection of eight Fresh Sugar lip tints. Each one has an SPF15 and protects, smoothes and nourishes your lips.

6. Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow $65
This limited edition, holiday-inspired quartet offers endless looks of festive glamour. A deep bronze-gold complements the violet-plum, smoky taupe and soft pink colors. Embossed with the signature quilted effect and the CC monogram, each powder eyeshadow is reminiscent of the classic Chanel jacket button.

7. Connor NYC Hand-Stamped Butterfly Cards $85
These smooth, heavyweight 4-5/8” x 6-1/8” cards are hand-stamped and bordered in bronze. Each envelope is hand-lined in soft peach tissue. Connor NYC is best known for their hand engraving on steel by a master engraver, ultimately producing not just a card, but a work of art.

8. Tory Burch Travel Adapter $75
A classic gift for all the jetsetters in your life. The Tory Burch Travel Adapter is made of durable coated poplin with patent trim. Its graphic striped print and gold ‘TB’ monogram give it a colorful punch – and make it easy to spot in your luggage. Bon voyage!

9. Kate Spade Glitterball Coin Purse $50
For the girl who brings sparkle wherever she goes! This petite coin purse with key holder, zip closure and 14-karat gold plated hardware is the perfect accessory for a night on the town. The fuschia faille lining is a colorful signature Kate Spade touch.

10. Goop & Butter London Nail Polish Set $36
Gwyneth Paltrow teamed up with Butter London to deck our digits this holiday season! The limited edition collaboration is the perfect stocking stuffer. Bread & Butter Pudding is a subtle nude, Abso-bloody-lutely is a deep cherry red, and Hampstead Heath is a gold moss green. If Gwynnie’s wearing it, so are we!
