Gift Guide: 12 Gifts for Her Under $50

Raising the bar a few dollars. . .  Last Wednesday it was Gifts for Her Under $25. Do I see see $50? Splurge a little on your sister or your BFF. These presents under $50 are all seriously cute. I’d love the earrings. The tape holder is tres chic, but not sure my desk is glam enough. The note blocks are cool though. And if you’re not totally into camo fashion, but want a taste of the trend, the cosmetic pouch is perfect.

Gift Guide: 15 Gifts For Guys Under $100

I started out thinking it would be hard to pull together a great gift guide for guys, but it turns out there is quite a bit of choice if you spend some time looking. Lucky for you, I did the work for you. These presents men are all under $100, and run the gamut from rugged accessories to useful gadgets. I hope something here appeals to you so you can check your boyfriend, husband, brother, or gay best friend off your list. And being Black Friday, there’s a ton of stuff on sale out there.

Gift Guide: 25 Hostess Gifts

It’s time to kick off the holiday buying season with gift guides. I’ve put together rather a lot of them, which I hope will be helpful. The hyperlinked price will take you to the site where you can buy it. If you get sick of so many guides, let me know and I’ll cut back. Happy shopping!

Here are 25 hostess gifts, all under $50. I’ve split them into three categories: Glam Hostess Gifts, Rugged Hostess Gifts, and Preppy Hostess Gifts. You may be tempted to make a little purchase for yourself, or stock a few extra for any last minute invitations.

Get the Look: 24 Floral Fashions For Summer

Did Thursday’s 26 Floral Street Style Looks inspire you to mix in a bit of floral lovin’? Even if you’re not ready for a full-on floral dress (and really, who am I to talk), you could try it out with a tank or hey, a thong. I’m thinking a floral iPhone case would work for me. I do love looking at these though, even if I’m not wearing them. So fun. If you love the floral-print shoes (I’m slightly obsessed with the Loeffler Randall pair here, and the Jimmy Choo floral-printed python platform), you can also check out my floral shoe roundup, “Petal Power” in Sunday’s Boston Globe.

Summer Style: Shopping the Memorial Day Sales

It’s supposed to rain all weekend in Boston and on the Cape. Bummer. We had planned to head to Truro for the first time since last fall. We still may go; there’s dead bug vacuuming to be done. However, like on all holiday weekends, there are sales galore. I may just be able to get some summer shopping accomplished online. I pulled together four sets of clothing and accessories I found. Everything shown is on sale. Not sure what to buy first. Oh, well actually I already picked up the stripey tote from Gap this week. What have you guys been buying for summer?
