Cadeaux Parfait—Prix Parfait

  • 26th February 2013

Great gifts under $50 are hard to find.

We are as fond of scented candles, aromatic soaps and good wine as anyone, but with just a tad more effort you can come up with something that will by-pass the random kitchen/hallway storage drawer and actually get used and loved.  And we have not gone above $50 (minus tax and shipping)

Cobalt Woven Paper Bowl, serenaandlily.com, $38.99

 

 

These are a few of our favorite ideas that work for anyone:  your friend’s birthday you suddenly remembered; end-of-year teacher ‘thank Us'; sudden invite to a colleague’s for brunch; secretary house-warming….whatever the occasion, stock up on a few of these now and you will be ready and thankful later.
