Thrifty/Trendy Stocking Stuffers

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! The end of Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year - Christmas! Since people are watching their budgets, I thought it would be a good idea to feature some inexpensive gifts/stocking stuffers.

I love shopping at Urban Outfitters, and their apartment/home section has all sorts of fun little items for Christmas. Here are three of my picks from this quirky store:

This raspberry shower cap comes in a can that says "raspberry beret," too cute and on sale!

Shower Cap - $6 (originally $9)

I love Hello Kitty and all things Sanrio, and I like keeping my ID case easily accessible. I like this slim case, because not only is it adorable, it makes it easy to access my ID, credit cards, or even my business cards. It also doesn't hurt that it's on sale for $10.

Monogramming is so popular these days and so is delicate necklaces. I am a big fan of this initial heart locket, and it actually opens up. I'm not sure that you would have a picture that small of it, but it's still pretty cool and a great price.

I've featured several items from C. Wonder in the past, and I always find something cute when I pop i
into their Soho store on Spring Street. As I've mentioned, C. Wonder was started by Tory Burch's ex-husband, and features preppy baubles priced for the masses. 

The Fox Stud Earrings are perfect for your foxy friends! Anything animal related is pretty popular and foxes are just plain awesome. I want a pair of these for myself.

Not sure what to buy for your officemate or for your secretary? This mug is the perfect gift, and at just $10, you can pick one up for yourself. I always bring a cute mug for the office. It makes the work day more fun, and my desk area more pleasant. 

Anthropologie is such a great store. It reminds me of a closet full of goodies collected by a world traveler. Some of my friends avoid the store, because they thing everything there is expensive, but it is one of my favorite places to find one of a kind looking gifts for my girl friends. There are tons of deals when there is a sale, and you can find some reasonably priced accessories. 

With the weather getting colder, I have been looking to add some winter accessories that are functional and stylish. I absolutely love these gloves. They are made of wool, so you know they are warm, and they are so girly and pretty with the bright yellow buttons and pink leather trim.
