The Best $10-20 Gifts

'Tis the time of year to always have a selection of easy gifts to grab as you're running out the door.  I've put together my favorite one-size-fits-all, budget friendly gifts for $10-20.  They are just the thing for teachers, neighbors, birthdays, friends, & hostesses. 

Quite often, I wrap a pretty set of Taper Candles up in a bow and present that to our Hostess as a gift.  They always get rave reviews if they've never seen such beautiful candles in these gorgeous colors.

The 15" Celebration Candles in Gold are always a favorite to give for a birthday or anniversary.

I love giving Tablets to friends and teachers, too.  Because these are so classically simple in design, they will suit anyone's aesthetic.  They are also seasonless.  They come prepackaged in a cellophane bag with a logo sticker, ready for giving.

LePens are such a treat for anyone.  They are a perfect gift to a teacher.

For Hostess Gifts, I'll fill these Amber Kitchen Bottles with my favorite Dish Soap + Counter Spray.  Tip : For the Counter Spray, I often just put a touch of the dish soap in water.  It adds a subtle scent to the water.


My Copper Cookie Cutters ($15.50) come packaged in a Cellophane Bag with my Sugar Cookie Recipe and are tied with a ribbon.  It is the perfect, special gift.  Even if your recipient isn't a baker, I love to line mine up on the windowsill or mantle.

I've put all of my favorite gift ideas in my new Gifts & Favorites Page, Shop here >

Gift Wrap & Packaging | Ribbon & Cello Bags Restocked

I love wrapping gifts.  I have always used simple light weight craft paper and really fabulous ribbon.  I wrapped this first stack of gifts this week using a combination of all different ribbons - some old, some new.  I used some classic Christmas colors, but then added some favorites from years and seasons past.  I think the eclectic-ness adds a charm factor that matchy-matchy doesn't quite acheive.

I think my hands down favorite is this fabulous wide green satin.  So pretty and silky.

This slate colored ribbon (from last season) looks so pretty with the light green snowflake tag.

I think red berry tag looks very sophisticated when paired with the rust colored velvet.

Here, I've paired the green satin ribbons with the Green Snowflake Tag & the Old Fashioned Wreath Tag.  If you go matchy-matchy, might as well go all out!

The Dark Grey box is our Boxed Gift Card for the store this season.  My favorite gift to give (wink, wink).

The Holiday Ribbon Collection has just been restocked.  Shop >

I always keep a big stash of Cellophane Bags for homemade treats.  They really dress up any simple gift.  They've also been restocked today.  Shop all of my favorite Gift Wrap Essentials, here >

Holiday Baking Collection | Hew Copper Cookie Cutters & Easy Baked Gift Ideas

Each season I select a collection of Handmade Copper Cookie Cutters for the Holidays.  This year's new addition is the Gingerbread Man.  

I can't wait to make him with this Gingerbread Recipe and decorate with Cream Cheese frosting and sprinkles like we did in this photo.  I might even make some to dry as ornaments and string them as a garland - how sweet would that be?

While I love iced sugar cookies, decorating doesn't have to be fancy - or even require any skill.  These were delicious and beautiful and so easy to make.  Here are my baking essentials (all recently restocked) that will make holiday baking simple :

Disposable Piping Bags, $14-18 for 100

These Gingerbread House are so much fun to make - and so much easier than making actual gingerbreads.

This year the Classic Budded Snowflake is back.  This shape has been one of my favorites since Martha Stewart carried one for Martha By Mail 15 years ago.

This is my favorite way to decorate snowflakes - with shimmering sanding sugar accenting.

They make such a pretty display with Ginger Spice Cookies.

I am making these tonight!  Just so, so good and really tastes and smells so much like Christmas should.

The Christmas Star Bread was everyone's favorite last year.  I am looking forward to making a new version this year - maybe with chocolate or a savory version?  I absolutely love this star bread.

Look at all of those yummy layers sprinkled with powdered sugar.

This is the Large Cookie Box, lined with parchment paper.

I shared this Chocolate Bark recipe last week - can't wait to make a new version of this, too, with sprinkles, marshmallows and tiny chocolate chips.
