Whether you need to find a present for a Secret Santa exchange or pick up a last-minute gift for a party hostess or co-worker, there are plenty of design-forward ways to say Happy Holidays without spending a lot of cash. I prefer to keep the gifts small, pretty, and useful, to make sure that they'll be appreciated and utilized.
Since we often give small gifts to acquaintances who we don't know intimately, it's better to stick to simple gifts such as vases, ornaments, desktop items, or candles, instead of art or other more personal gifts.
For a quirky friend, these Mustache Pencils ($14) would be a great gift to present at a holiday party or gift exchange. Tie them with a pretty velvet ribbon, add a cute composition book, and you're sure to have a winning holiday present(ation). For more ideas, check out the widget below.
