Lovely Finds: Holiday Gift Ideas under $30

In case your holiday shopping has yet to cease,

I have some one-size-fits-all options

from small businesses

which won’t cost an arm and a leg

(an odd expression I promise I shan’t use again).

30" STERLING Silver Ball Chain Necklace With Vintage Heart Shaped Religious Amulet Medal Christ

30″ Sterling Soul Chain with vintage amulet by Hello Lovely

From my little hands,

for about $30,

something old and something new

become something treasured.

Altered Rhinestone Tiara...FIND HEALING

Altered tiara, $20

Not all of the art and items in my shop are religious, peeps.

True Feelings Candle Holders from Splendid Avenue

I love my set of unique porcelain lovelies from

Scandinavia designed by Claydies, and the

price ($26!) is just perfect for a hostess gift.

Did you know Monika’s Splendid Avenue shop is now

a real live brick and mortar shop in Seattle!?!

 Organic Hard Candy Tins $4.99 by Torie & Howard

I am officially addicted to these candies

which come in tin packaging almost

as delicious as the flavors inside.

The best part? They are clean, organic delish.

Pure. No Guilt. Complex.

Holy yum.

Couldn’t resist styling my tins with a juicy print by Kate Lewis

Imagine gifting your hostess a wee little basket of

five of these tins which will only set you back $25…

or buy them in bulk

to fill stockings, and watch mouths water!

Lovely and distinctive refined flavors to tickle your tongue.

No additives, artificial flavors or colors.

Swedish Moss Heart, $12

How precious is this moss heart?

I have one hung on the wall inside a vintage picture frame.

Can be hung on a door, in a window, or placed on a table.

A beautiful gift as is, or add your own thread,

ribbons, or tiny pine cones!

Millie, Patron Saint of Facial Hair - Beeswax Container Votive Candle

Millie, Patron Saint of Facial Hair Votive Candle

Finally, for that special friend in your life

who has everything…a $6.50 votive

to honor and celebrate

the silent passage, yes?

Shopping online can be a hoot, friends!

Peace to you right where you are.

    Thanks for the laughs 🙂 I should get that candle for my seven sisters. All older and well…..let's stop there. Just joking 🙂 I love how you incorporated "the old" into the jewelry – so cool!
