DECOR GIFTS UNDER $50

1 // Here’s proof that stylish home decor items don’t have to be expensive.  These Pierced Lanterns are just $12.99 for the set of 2. Plus they are perfect for decorating during the holidays or anytime of the year. design tip: transform a decorative lantern into a flower vase by simply dropping a clear glass vase inside the lantern to hold flowers.

2 // Animal Print Velvet Pillow — I’ve seen this pillow at my local TJMaxx and its gorgeous.  It’s lush and the 22″ X 22″ size ($39.99) is perfect as an accent pillow on a sofa or bed. It’s also available in a 14″ x 26″ size ($29.99).  design tip:  animal prints are a classic design element that will never go out of style.  

3 // After seeing this Etched Glass Globe in Dear Lillie’s home office, I had to have it.  It’s a unique decorative piece that will make a great gift for guys or gals.  And it’s on sale for $34.99.  design tip:  don’t relegate globes to the home office, they make a nice decorative statement as part of a tabletop vignette.

4 // I used these Acrylic Candle Holders on a client’s fireplace mantel and they are stunning.  The brass base and acrylic stem create the perfect mix of traditional and modern styling.  Two sizes–small $34.00 and large $41.00.  design tip: using candle holders in different sizes will add depth and dimension to a candle arrangement.  But if your pair of candle holders are the same height, use pillars or taper candles in different heights to create the same dimensional effect.

CLASSIC DECOR GIFTS

5 //  Have you noticed how hard it is to find stylish bud vases?  Well, I’ve found the one!  This gorgeous Clear Mini Glass Vase is fluted and looks much more expensive than its $5.99 price.  design tip:  A grouping of single bud vases down the middle of dining table can have just a much impact as a large floral arrangement.  And bud vases are great at each individual place setting.

6 // I absolutely love this Rattan Ice Bucket. It’s casually chic and would look great on a bar cart or in a butler’s pantry.  $59.50  design tip:  ice buckets also make great flower vases!  Here’s a great example.

7 // There’s not much from Serena & Lily that I don’t love.  I’d use this Bedford Tray  as part of a coffee table arrangement.  $148.00  design tip:  if your tray has an open weave bottom, have a piece of clear acrylic cut to fit so the tray becomes functional for serving.

UNIQUE & CHIC DECOR GIFTS

8 //  I own this Faux Fur Soft Throw Blanket and can’t begin to tell you how soft it is.  It’s available in three colors but this grey is my favorite.  $59.99 d design tip:  when not in use, drape throw blankets over the backs of chairs or across a footstool as a decorative statement.

9 //  I just adore this blue and white Tassel Cachpot from Wayfair and hope Santa brings it my way for Christmas.  $159.99  design tip:  planters are not just for plants.  Oversized planters make great containers for magazine, blankets or towel storage in a bathroom.

10 // Magnifying glasses like the Zamora Magnifier Glass are a fun accessory to add to a coffee table or bookshelf vignette. And they are a good men’s gift too! $49.95  design tip:  group three or more  similar items together to create an instant collection.  Check out this grouping of magnifying glasses.

11 // How cute is this White Elephant Match Holder?   Pair this with your favorite candle and you’ve got an awesome gift anyone would love. $38.00 design tip:  whenever you’re shopping for decorative accessories, think about additional ways an item can be used.  This match holder could be used as a flower vase, ring holder or vanity accessory in the bathroom.

Cute earrings are my kryptonite especially when they’re under $20.  These 3-drop Fabric Lined Earrings are just $15.90 and would look just as great with jeans and a sweater or with a black party dress.  

 I love giving personalized gifts and this Flowering Monogram Pouch from Anthroplogie is definitely on my personal gift giving list.  It’s an ideal size to hold coins, credit cards or a few beauty essentials. $38.00

♦  I love everything that Lollia makes including this Lollia Poetic License Diffuser ($48).  Scent diffusers are a great way to add fragrance to a home without burning candles. I especially love to use diffusers in a bathroom or tuck one away in a guest bedroom.

♦  This Gilded Monogram DOF Glass ($18) is a good gift for someone (like me) that loves to entertain. One, two or four make a great hostess gift or family gift.  If you’re celebrating the holidays at a New Year’s Eve party, a set glasses would be ideal to ring in the new year.

♦  A pretty necklace can make an outfit. The Silver Links Statement Necklace ($29.99) is a gift that will be enjoyed long after the holidays are over.

♦ Emerald Green is one of my favorite colors and you can’t beat the price on this Green Pashmina Style Shawl ($5.99)!  It’s the perfect layering piece over a sweater or under a coat. One for them, one for me.√

♦  You’ll wow anyone with a gift of these Silver Mercury Glass Hurricane Candleholder ($11.89-$19.59).  They will look stunning grouped in the center of a table or next to the hearth.  And I’d also use them as vases by dropping a clear glass jar inside to hold flowers.  Check your local Cost Plus because these are selling out quickly online.

♦  Pretty {and functional) gloves are hard to come by but this pair of Echo Touch Zip Boucle’ Tech Gloves ($39) checks both boxes.  You can operate a cell phone with ease and stay warm while doing it.

♦  This L’Objet Malachite Tray ($120) is the most expensive gift in the gift guide but it is a beauty.  Envision this sitting on a side table, night stand or vanity holding pretty perfume bottles.

♦  If you’ve never read any of Steve Harvey’s books, I recommend you do. His books are filled with solid wisdom, advice and lots of laughs too.  I can’t wait to read his newest book, Jump: Take the Leap Of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance ($18.04).

♦  A girl can never have too many handbags.  The Crossbody Bag with Metallic Straps ($39.90) is a great bag for weekend shopping or traveling when you need hands free.

♦ I’m always stuffing my electronic cords in a zippered pouch but they never stay organized.  The idea of something to keep everything neat and tidy is so appealing.  I love this Leather Charger Roll Up ($49) because its compact and comes in fun colors.

♦  Personalized stationery just might be one of best gifts you can give someone. This 7 Tablet Notepad Set with Holder ($41) is a great price and personalization is available in array of colors.
