2011 gift guides: $100 and under

by Grace Bonney

Today is my final budget-friendly gift guide (there are still more guides to come), and I’m wrapping things up with gifts on the higher end of the price spectrum: $100 and under. For those with a little extra to spend this year, I’ve rounded up some great options, from jewelry and accessories to tabletop goods, gadgets and handmade specialties. I hope you’ll find something here for someone on your list. And if you’re looking for less pricey items, check out this week’s earlier budget guides: $50 and under and $25 and under. Our full gift guide list is right here (11 guides so far). xo, grace
