25 Gifts under $50

by Amy Azzarito

We have soooo many gift guides coming up. There’s one that I’m really excited about (here’s a hint), but first we’re tackling the budget guides. I honestly love gift guide season a.k.a. “catch up on TV time” In making this guide, I blew through all the episodes of Parenthood that I had missed this fall, Grace introduced me to Summer Heights High, and I maybe have been sneaking some Grey’s Anatomy into the mix. (My one criteria is that it needs to be a show that doesn’t require me to look up too frequently from the computer.)  So yesterday, I shared my favorite picks in the under $25 category and today here are my favs in the under $50 category. There are so many things in this guide that I have on my own wishlist – I’ve wanted to hang a ship from my ceiling for years. I think I was just waiting for this kite to be made.  I’m dying over that Japanese needlepoint clutch, and I have a perfect spot on my bookshelf for the Montessori blocks. Sigh. Did I mention that the downside of gift guide making is the temptation to shop? –Amy
