2011 gift guides: $50 and under

by Grace Bonney

I’ve finally started to make my Christmas list and begin shopping for friends and family. I far prefer figuring out gifts for other people, so sometimes making these gift guides is fun because I like to imagine who I’d buy what for out of each one. This guide was one of my favorites because there seemed to be a wealth of great gifts in the $50 and under range this year. From beautiful coasters and cheese boards to bookends, leathergoods and planters, there’s something here for everyone on your list. I hope you’ll enjoy the ideas!
