Gifts Under $150 // Gifts Under $50
Let’s be honest, not everyone (myself included) can afford amazing vintage pieces in every inch of their homes. I love finding vintage, thrift store and Craigslist finds and mixing them with new pieces. This marble table was from an amazing vintage shop in DC, GoodWood. I wanted to have a Parisian black and white kind of theme in this space so I looked for furniture with a similar color palette and shape. My three biggest tips for mixing vintage and ‘big box store’ pieces are below.

-Stick to the same tones: I went with black and white here. The wicker tone on the chair is pretty neutral as well. The black bases of the bench and chairs work well together and the white seat of the bench works well with the table.
-Pay attention to shape and lines: There are a ton of curved lines in this space. The table is an oval shape with circular base, the chairs have slightly rounded backs and the leg detail provides another fun curve. While the bench is more straight and rectangular, the legs offer a bit of a curve detail and keep with the Parisian feel.
-Keep scale in mind: This table is fairly small (the perfect size for a 1 bed apartment with no real dining room.. and it can still seat 4 in a pinch) but I didn’t want to overwhelm the marble table with furniture that was too big or visually heavy. The table is the star of the show and the bench and chairs are complements. Having two chairs instead of four helps to keep the space a bit more open and show off the marble. And the pieces are scaled to the width and height of the table so they aren’t towering over it or so bulky that they won’t fit underneath.
You can shop the pieces (or very similar) below by clicking on each one. The table is vintage, the bench is no longer made (originally from Target) but the exact chairs are still available and I’ve found a couple very similar bench and table options for you!

This guide has everything under 50- fashion, home decor, tech, jewelry and more. **OMG I just realized that sounded like Stefon from Saturday Night Live but now I have to leave it here 🙂 …
Anyway- These are perfect for a friend, sister, co-worker, mom, aunt… just about anyone. I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites below and every item is clickable so just click to shop and it will take you directly to the site!
Some of these are definitely on my wish list this year!
For someone who appreciates tech and design, the phone/vase combo is so interesting and chic! You can’t go wrong with good dish towels and those from Target would be too cute in any kitchen. And yes, I know the lamp is $4 over price but it’s just too gorgeous not to include! The brass/marble combo gets me every time. Hope you enjoy! One more gift guide left… coming soon. Happy shopping!
This holiday season, I wanted to mix things up a bit. I’ll be sharing a few more gift guides over the next couple weeks but for today, I wanted to highlight some amazing small businesses and especially some women-owned businesses! There’s so many wonderful women I follow on Instagram who are making, sourcing and selling amazing things. I also reached out to my followers and they had some great suggestions too. I didn’t have room to include every single one, but if you’d like to check out some additional recommendations, they’re in the comments of this instagram post.
I’ll be purchasing (or have already purchased) a lot of Christmas gifts from these shops this year and I hope you do, too! Favorite picks are highlighted and the full list is sorted by category. Happy shopping!!
