Favorites Over 50: 10 Gifts Under $100
For those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, happy holiday!! For those of you who celebrate Christmas, are you still shopping? I’m pretty much done. But this weekend, my husband asked: “What do you want for Christmas?” I’m so busy at holiday time, I don't given "me" much thought. But my husband really appreciates some gift ideas. So yesterday, I starting making a list of gifts under $100. When it comes to buying gifts for me, my husband likes it “when I draw him a map,” so I went online to see if I could find photo examples. Naturally, there's lots online and much of it on sale. Below is a sample of my favorite gifts under $100. For instance, I'm crazy about belts this season and would love to get a fun belt like the Exotic Leather Skinny Belt ($34) above.
What are you hoping "Santa" will leave under the tree? I'd love to know.

FAVORITE COLD BUSTERS
Well, it's already happened: I've lost my favorite pair of gloves and it's only December! So a pair of gloves is on my list. But this year, I'm asking for long gloves. I still haven't found a jacket with three-quarter sleeves, but I'm hoping I will soon. I just love that look.
Long Leather and Knit Gloves ($78)
I love all the fur collars on sweaters and jackets this season. When I saw this Faux Fur Snood (was $98, now $73.50), I thought: This is perfect! A faux fur piece I can wear with several coats and jackets.
I love nice sleepwear, especially romantic and classic nightgowns. However, this Christmas, I'm asking for a robe, like this Jones Ny Festive Bouquet Prnt Satin Rbe ($44.99). It's is a great piece for traveling, especially when you're a house guest.
FYI...If you're looking for a nightgown resource, I saw a bunch on nice ones on Shop SoftSurroundings.com
I've been thinking my "street look" could use a little sprucing up. I'd like to add a classic silk scarf in soft tones like the ones you see on Parisian women.
Ann Taylor Jewels Print Oblong Silk Scarf ($68)
I love the cuff look, but have never worn one. I'm thinking a sleek, art deco cuff like this Wide Rectangle Pyramid Stretch Bracelet ($68) might be a great way to try the trend.
My wallet is looking a little shabby. I'd love something in a colorful leather. This one has an animal print lining.
Jones New York Park Avenue Leather Wallet (Orange) (was $78, now $59) in 8 fab colors.
A stylish umbrella is always a nice addition to a gal's street look. An umbrella with a Diane von Furstenberg print sounds pretty perfect.
Diane von Furstenberg DVF Umbrella ($45)
I travel with an iPad a lot and feel like I'm tempting fate by just throwing it in my bag. It would be nice to have a stylish case like this well-priced Marc Jacobs case.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Dreamy Logo Neoprene Tablet Case (was $58, now $40.60) Also available in Pink.
Last Christmas, my husband gave me Bobbi Brown: Living Beauty. I admire Bobbi Brown so much. Her book is a fun read with easy-to-follow makeup tips (I need so much help with makeup!!). I thought it might be fun to ask for another book this Christmas. There are so many style books available, it's hard to know which one to pick. For my list, I chosen Books with Style Chanel Three Book Set ($75). because Chanel is another woman I greatly admire and I feel her ideas about style are still very relevant.
