We share our favourite gift ideas that come in under $50 – perfect for you closest friend, sister, momma and Secret Santa pick. 


Loves Bling

I LOVE this laptop case. There’s something about gold shiny things that attract me like a Kardashian to a tabloid scandal. Mirror Metallic Laptop Case, $29.23 CDN at ASOS.com








Your Dress/Skirt Wearing Friend

These tights are feminine, feature an on-trend print, and are great for day and evening wear. Also great as a stocking stuffer. Gypsy Big Dot Tights, $10.96 CDN at ASOS.com (ASOS.com ships free internationally!)










PETA Member

These faux fur booties are amazing. I ordered several as gifts this winter, and at $19 a pair, you can’t go wrong. Plush and warm, they come if four shades – meaning you can coordinate your fine-furred feet with your favourite flannel PJs. Luxe Faux Fur Booties, $19 CDN at Restoration Hardware









This MADE cuff is minimalist in its simplicity, but bold in its appearance. Gift to the woman in your life who doesn’t like wearing lots of jewelry – this cuff is the perfect way to make an outfit interesting without layering on necklaces and earrings. MADE is also an ethical company – their jewelry is made with fair trade practices in Kenya. MADE Nyitithie brass cuff, $46 | TheOutnet.com





The Gift of Mindy Kaling

This is the PERFECT gift for any woman with a sense of humour on your list. I LOLed so many times while reading this book, which is part inspirational, part life guide, part comedy sketch. Her honesty is endearing and the photographs oh-too-relatable (who hasn’t taken those self-indulgent posed pictures with their Blackberry or iPhone?). Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), $16.98 | Amazon.ca








Spa Bunny

Forget Body Shop scented bath baskets – this Caudalie spa set is the perfect indulgence for anyone on your list. This French au naturel brand creates soothing botanical products that will transport you to heavenly relaxation. The Hand & Nail cream included in this set is a personal favourite. Caudalie Once Upon A Vine… Set, $38 | Sephora.com








Desi Baby

Gnaana offers a little something for every little brown baby: alphabet blocks and number books in Hindi, Gujarati, Telegu, Tamil, Kannada, Punjabi and Bengali; religion-inspired puzzles; and beautiful calendars that include South Asian holidays. I just bought the Bindi Books on animals and numbers for a nephew. A must-buy gift for every mom, dad and grandparent with young children. Bindi Bundle: Numbers and Animals Books, multiple languages available, $25 USD | Gnaana.com





Tech Chic

Who doesn’t need a little Marc Jacobs in their life? This sleek iPad case from Marc by Marc Jacobs works great for men and women, the gold-toned logo won’t clash with anyone’s laptop bag and shoes, and it comes with faux fur lining. That’s like hitting two trends in one accessory. Marc by Marc Jacobs Stardust iPad Case, $42 CDN | ssense.com
