Looking for something not terribly expensive as a gift?

Talbots has some super pretty brooches and on Friday you can get one for 50% off if you shop before noon!
I am in love with the mouse and the hummingbird, but I've seen them all in person at their store and can honesty say that they are all simply the sweetest.  Go to their website HERE and search for "pin".  

While at the mall yesterday I stopped into Old Navy.  EVERYTHING in the store was 50% off.
Great hats and scarves for winter fun, and lots of buffalo plaid items.
If looking for something for kids, teens, or your favorite guy, this could be the sale for you.  Hurry, because WOW, the store was filled with people making purchases!  I bought five winter hats as gifts all at half price!

PIER 1.  What can I say?  They had soooo many wonderful gifts.  It takes me forever to walk around their store because I want everything for myself!

If ever you wanted to give a gift from THE LOFT, or get something totally awesome for yourself, then now is the time because 50% off?  Did you hear me???  50% OFF!  online code is BERRYGOOD

 J Crew has 40% off with code HOLIDAY

 There's always Starbucks gift cards, or why not ask where they eat lunch on work days and give a gift certificate to that restaurant!  I mean, who doesn't love a free lunch!

Give them the money to buy an annual membership to PicMonkey if they are a blogger.  It's $33, so it's a pretty nice gift and PicMonkey is so easy to use too!

If they love printing photos, give them photo paper from Best Buy, or a gift certificate for printer ink!  My ink is soooo expensive so for those of us with an addiction to printing photos, it makes a HUGE gift.

AND, shop early, only because otherwise the best stuff is gone already.  At least that's my opinion.

Want to do something more thoughtful?  Then give some scarves and hats and mittens to your local charity, or lots of canned food items to a local food pantry. These gifts are appreciated more than you will ever know.  

Pay for someone's coffee or dinner order when you are out for the day, smile at a stranger, give to children collecting donations for their school activities.  

It's all good.



  1. Wonderful ideas. Thanks for scouting around and sharing them.

  2. These are some great ideas! Will have to check out Talbot's. My son-in-law sent me a list of items ranging from inexpensive to "yeah, sure, I'm gonna buy you that". I think men are difficult to buy for so I appreciated his input. When I commented that my husband would add an Audi A10, he said he'd take one too. Boys and their toys...

  3. Great ideas . . .
    I need a Red Hat . . . "to gift myself!"
    (If I would start right now to knit one, it would be January end before I would be finished!)
