15 gifts under $50. You’ll love these!

When my TV producer friend Tammy asked me if I’d like to do a holiday segment on the AM Northwest morning show, of course I immediately said yes! Then she said, “can you do it on gifts under $50?” Absolutely! But secretly, I was wondering if I could come through with enough gift ideas that meet my high standards 😂

So, for the last few weeks, I’ve been very carefully selecting special gifts, ones that your loved ones will surely appreciate. Truthfully, I own many of these — so I know FIRST HAND how good they really are! Take a look … guaranteed you’ll find something wonderful for everyone on your list.

P.S. View the AM Northwest segment here!  I just realized I forgot to link the Italy book, so here it is!

#1 – Rifle Paper Co. apron.  Its been a long time since I’ve worn an apron, but because this one was so pretty, I couldn’t resist! There are more patterns here, and this one is only $32.00.  The perfect gift for someone who loves to cook.

#2 -La Pomme de Portland book. My dear friend and photographer Carrie Minns lovingly wrote, produced and photographed this gorgeous book.  “A collection of  stories and recipes drawn from the seasons of food and life.” This book makes a lovely gift for someone special in your life.

#3 – Dash Express egg cooker. Everyone in my family is obsessed with this egg cooker. It’s easy to use, and it quickly makes 7 eggs at a time. This is one of those appliances that’s worth every penny! $19.95.

#4 – Champagne flutes. These are a little fancy, and the gold rim is so pretty! Add a bottle of Prosecco (I love La Marca) and this will make the perfect gift for anyone who loves bubbly. $16.00 each.

#5 – Boy Smells candles. Founded in Los Angeles, these candles mix traditionally feminine and masculine scents, like rose and smoke or honeysuckle and tomato. Each candle is made from natural oils, coconut wax and beeswax, and is hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel. I’ve been burning this one and this one lately, and love them so much. You will too! $32.00.
