Chandelier's Five Favorite (Affordable-Chic) Holiday Gifts

Chandelier has wrapped up some incredible events this year--and now we're finally getting down to planning for our own parties--and all the gifts in between. Here are some of our favorite gift picks under $100--we just HAD to share! 


Whether she's a classic prep or Brooklyn hipster, these signet rings are a no-brainer accessory. Available in script or block print engraving, a variety of monogram styles from a single initial to a trio of letters, and silver, gold or rose gold, this everlasting gift reads trendy-but conservative enough to become a year-after-year staple.  

FOR YOUR FOODIE:  Matryoshka Doll Measuring Cups Set, Sur La Table, $12

Need a stocking stuffer for your next dinner party hostess? These Russian Doll-inspired measuring cups look as cute on the counter as they are usable in the kitchen. This set of six dry-measure cups accurately measures ¼, 1/3, ½, 2/3, ¾ and 1 full cup, and nests neatly inside each other (space-saver, yeahy!). 

FOR YOUR FAVORITE GIRLFRIEND: Skipperling Mirror, Anthropologie, $42

Propped up by delicate brass butterfly wings, this little mirror is the perfect touch to dress up an vanity. It says sweet but not saccharin--and that's what we like most about it. 

FOR YOUR FAVORITE NEIGHBORSnowman Family Kit, L.L.Bean, $29.95

We are totally head over heels for this make-your-own snowman kit--complete with a wooden carrot nose, eyes, and buttons wrapped up neatly in a burlap sack--this is the gift that keeps on giving. I am planning on ordering a bunch of these for upcoming holiday parties! Add a cute tag and you've got an instant hostess gift for the neighborhood holiday potluck.

FOR YOUR GADGET GURU: Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 4,, $79.95

This one is DEFINITELY on my list (ahem, hope you are reading this!). If your Apple addict is anything like me, he/she will be overjoyed to have 5 battery lives available at the flip of a switch on this nifty iPhone case. 

Happy holidays and shopping to you.
