DON’T GET IT TWISTED- An “on-a-budget” present (or bundle of presents) does NOT have to involve Doing-It-Yourself. #LilGripes will share our own edition of DIY Holiday Gift Ideas, but for now, let us show you how you can purchase holiday cheer for just around $20!
A $20(ish) SOLO GIFT FOR HIM:
Throw Pillow/Indoor Cover (16″ x 16″), $18.00,
(I hate the horror film genre and even I want this throw! It scares your nightmares away?)
A $20(ish) GIFT BUNDLE FOR HIM:
1. C.O. Bigelow ‘Barber’ Premium Shave Cream, $5.oo for a 1.7 oz. tube ($10.00 for a 5.2 oz. tube)
$9.50 (comes in both Cap and Gown and Navy and Orange – pictured below)
Sure, high-end cufflinks make you feel like a Master of the Universe straight out of Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities.
3. Wine Away 2 oz. Spray Bottle, $5.99
Maybe not the most glamorous gift but it will come pleeeenty in handy in the holiday season. Uncle Neil can slosh around the red wine as much as he wants–We got you.
IF THE WINE STAIN REMOVER SEEMS UNDERWHELMING PRESENTATION-WISE, WE SUGGEST THESE DAZZLING ALTERNATIVES:
Gibson Swiss Dot Round Ceramic Bowl, $4.00 OR:
KASSATEX ‘Marmara’ Turkish Cotton Wash Towel, $5.49,
(All the men in my life could use a handsomer wash towel. This one should do the trick.)
A $20(ish) SOLO GIFT FOR HER:
