Loved ones know gift giving is about the thought, not the price tag. But that doesn’t mean you have to steal office supplies for stocking stuffers (though, you know, to each their own). Here, with picks from three uber-modest price points, our Rue Living buyers prove cheap can be chic.
Clockwise, from left – here’s a little something to get those gifty juices flowing.
1. For the Top-Chef-in-Training. And, rejoice! – supervision (slash fire extinguisher) not necessary.
2. For the Girl on the Go (who always loses her phone). As soon as she recovers from the shock typically brought on by stylishly smart presents like this one, your friend will never put this delicious leather wristlet down.
3. For the Jingling-Jangling Jewelry Fiend. This ferocious bangle? It’s a seamless addition to any well-curated bracelet stack.
4. For the Budding Oenophile. This opener has any wine bottle uncorked in an instant – which, I’m guessing, is how an oenophile likes it.
5. For the Not-Always-on-Time Friend. Sure, she gets a to-die-for watch. Your gift, though? No longer having to fib about start times (“8:00? No, it starts at 7:50…”) in the name of her prompt arrival.
6. For the Guy with the New Fitness Regimen. Help him keep those (slowly loosening) pants securely in place.
