Christmas Gift Ideas Under $100 - Get The Look For Less

Here are my favorite things of 2009. Most are items I have tested and approved (love). Check out my thoughts on each gift idea below.

  1. Blu Bijoux Mixed Media Cuff – Max & Chloe $19.00 : I love this cuff. I picked up one for myself and one for my BFF at the Max & Chloe Cyber Monday sale. I can’t wait for it to come in. It is made of denim, stone, and metal and is also available in gold.
  2. Urban Expressions Zeppelin Studded Clutch – $45.00 : Studs are super hot this season and I love the high shine on these metal embellishments. A wristlet is a must for going out with friends when you don’t want to have a handful of clutch all night. Yes, please!
  3. Peppermint Bark Soap – $5.50 : How adorable is this Peppermint Bark Shea Butter soap by designer sherrisscentsandsoys. This would make for a great stocking stuffer for all of the ladies on your holiday shopping list. Thanks to @designsvanessa for this fab find!
  4. Angel Wing Necklace – $20.00 : Love the idea of this stylish angel wing necklace for the holidays. This would look effortlessly chic with any outfit, especially when combined with other necklaces of varying lengths.
  5. Tazo Tea Tea Sampler Gift Box – $19.95 : This is the perfect gift for the tea lover on your list, which would be me! I LOVE Tazo Tea – the Chai and Awake Tea are what I order most from Starbucks. The box is beautiful and I love the assortment. I have a cup a day as my mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
  6. Ornoir Earrings – $15.00 : Another fab find from I want these so bad. I am addicted to black and gold and these would go with everything in my closet, dressy or casual.
  7. Flip Ultra Camcorder – $89.99 : I can’t believe I found a Flip Camcorder for under $100. My husbad doesn’t leave home without his! They are so fun and come complete with a flip-out usb drive for easily uploading videos to your computer. This is perfect for anyone that wants to share videos on their blog or youtube and would go great with gift number 16 on this list.
  8. Mermaid Wine Holder – Sundog Co. $56.00 : I got this for my good friend and then had to have one for myself too, haha. I call her my drunken mermaid and she holds a bottle of champagne at all times. My house has a beach theme (vases full of large white starfish, my beach painting above the couch) and my mermaid fits right in.
  9. Black Charging Valet – $27.99 : Picked this up for my husband and it is the perfect organizer for holding all of those electronics that need charging. The best part is that it hides all of your cords because there is a hidden power strip on the inside. Love it!
  10. 6 Chocolate Covered Holiday Berries – Shari's Berries $29.99 : Check out my review of Shari’s Berries… I’m addicted. Perfect last minute, or anytime gift. Their big, red, and juicy and the chocolate is so yummy. This gift will get the creativity award from your girlfriends.
  11. Golden Ocean Peacock Cuff – $38.00 – I have two cuffs already from Etsy designer DirtyStory and I love them both (seen here and here). I hope to add more to my collection over time. I prefer beautiful bold cuffs vs. noisy bangles that I end up taking off when I get to work.
  12. Goldfinger-less Gloves – $29.99 : I love anything and everything from and these fingerless gloves are no exception. Knit from a cozy yarn woven into a decorative pattern on top, these accessories work great solo over bare forearms, or layered with a long sleeve tee.
  13. Single Bottle Club – starting at $19.95 : This is perfect for the aunt, uncle, mom, dad, grandma, wife, girlfriend, bff or any wine lover on your list. It’s the gift that keeps giving throughout the year. Select from single or multiple bottles per month, in addition to the duration of the gift membership.
  14. Tassi Head Wrap – $13.95 : Check out my glowing, gushing review of my Tassi head wrap. I wear it daily and I hope Santa puts another one in my stocking this year (in white, hint hint) :) A fun gift for any of your girlfriends and comes in a wide array of colors.
  15. Electronic Catch Phrase – $26.99 : This gift is an instant party straight out of the box and is such a great gift for any guy or gal on your list. Prepare to get loud and rowdy straight away. There is also a music edition that is out of control fun!
  16. Western Digital HD Media Player for USB Storage Devices – $99.99 : I got this gift for my husband’s birthday and he loves it! Plug your flash drive (movies, TV shows, pics, and music that you have downloaded from your computer) into the player and view the media on your TV. The Flip Camcorder, gift number 7, also hooks up to the media player’s USB drive and plays your videos on the big screen. So easy!
  17. Lucky Brand Snowflake Scarf – $69.00 : This scarf may be Merry Christmas from me to me, haha. The color and the eclectic style are so on trend right now. I’d love to wear this with wide leg jeans, a long tank, and a cropped jacket. LOVE!

Erika Hendrix at The Looks For Less


I recently discovered the website of designer Erika Hendrix and fell in love. I ended up spending nearly an hour browsing her lookbook because I knew I had to have one of her fabulous designs, but had the hardest time deciding on a fav.

In 2005, Erika created her own independent fashion label called Erika Hendrix, and boutiques all around Germany began carrying her line of apparel. Her most recent foray into the fashion world was during Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010.

Beige Tube Scarf at The Looks For Less

All of the items on Erika’s website are personally designed and handmade by the designer herself, using 90% natural fabrics and materials, such as cotton, linen etc. I picked up the “big tube scarf” and I can’t wait to wear it with my brown tweed cropped jacket. I’m filing this find under “In My Closet” and “My Wish List” because although I have the beige scarf, I still want one of everything from her amazing lookbook.

I tweeted Erika to let her know how much I like her shop and she offered my readers a promo code. Enter CELEBRITY at checkout to save 15% on all orders over 50 Euro from now until December 15th. Follow her on twitter at @ErikaHendrix.

Cage Strappy Platform Pumps - Get The Look For Less

Charlotte Russe is having another free shipping sale. I always stock up because their site has more to offer and I can return what doesn’t fit at my local CR (no shipping either way).

Hope you’ll help me decide which color strappy cage platform pumps I should get. Whenever I’m stumped I turn to the fashion experts – my readers :) I was going for the black and then realized they came in taupe also. Oh decisions, decisions. Both will go with everything in my closet. They have a matte faux leather finish, cage strap details, peep-toe, and a back zipper closure. I do love the two tone of the taupe pumps – the platform below the peep-toe is a darker faux wood brown, which is very cool. Love!

Enjoy free shipping on every order of $35+ from 11/15 through 11/25 at!

Platform Cut-Out Pumps - Get The Look For Less

Update: This sale has been extended through 10/6!

Today is the last day of the Steve Madden super sale and this cut-out peep-toe platoform pump is at the top of my wish list. I love that they come in a mix of either a patent leather or suede finish and I want them in every color. The blue and purple are so vibrantly gorgeous, the pink is so soft, almost nude, the gold adds a just a hint of sparkle without bling, and the gray and black are must have basics.

The price is right for this pump at $89, and I may just get two to meet the $150 minimum to save 25% off (saves $44, basically a buy one get one half off deal)! Or maybe I’ll mix it up with something else from their amazing selection.

The Merrie’s very sexy slits slither all the way up to your ankle, while the side zipper allows easy on and off access. Dress these up or down as they will go with anything and everything in your closet!

My Wish List - Vogue Dress

This dress sold out at and was brought back by popular demand! And now, it is available in electric blue. I am so in love. If you don’t have a little black dress, this is a must have. If you need a bit of color in your wardrobe, the pink and electric blue are amazing!! It’s only August and I’m already thinking of New Year’s Eve in this dress. Can you believe these incredibly stylish and sexy dresses are under $50.

Beaded Sequin Bib Necklace - Get The Look For Less

I’m am listing this Sequin Beaded Bib Necklace in “My Wish List” since I haven’t received it in the mail yet, but at $15.50, consider it ordered! I am in love! My “Top 5 for Fall” list includes a statement necklace, a piece that is vintage inspired, anything with sequins, beads, or studs, platform pumps, and an amazing scarf.

This necklace is 3 out of 5. Wear it with a long flowey off white top and your favorite cropped blazer and you will look AMAZING. Don’t forget the platform pumps. Those are also on my top 5 for fall list!

Aldo Peep Toe Wedge

These sandals were reason enough for me to start a new “Wish List” category, so welcome to the 1st edition. The Tumlin open-toe lace up wedge sandals by Aldo are so kick ass!

I’ve seen several ankle high wedge sandals in high end department stores lately, but I had yet to find a pair for under $100… until now. I’ve browsed through the collection of Aldo shoes at and they have an amazing selection.

Last week, I was browsing the blog of my twitter bud @Cayleem and that’s when I discovered my wish list shoe… so thank you @Cayleem for the find! Check her out in the Aldo Tumlin, and I believe she is wearing the Aldo Maune peep toe pumps in her black and white post. I adore her style!
