It’s that most wonderful time of year when everyone has a sale… all at the same time.  I keep telling myself I’m going to start a Black Friday change jar and add to it all year long so I can take more advantage of the awesome sales.  Here are some of the items I found that a) won’t break your bank – I think the most expensive item is $40; b) are as fun to give as to receive; and, c) many include personalization.  Who doesn’t love seeing their monogram or initials on something pretty? 😉


My favorite gifts to give and receive this year, ranging from $3 to $40. Happy Holidays from The Striped House!

And a couple other little nuggets of goodness…

Things I bought this year that are worth passing along – totally not home decor related 😉

These computer glasses.  They help with screen headaches and look good on every woman I’ve seen wearing them.

This cell phone charger has saved my keister many a time.  I cannot travel without it, since I’m on it all the time checking flights, maps, getting uber rides, taking photos, etc.

Jenny Komenda mentioned these in her gift guide last year, and I was all “preach on”!  I have used these for years.  $3, baby.

This white marble tabletop easel is under $30.  It’s meant for cookbooks, but I use it on my desk for work.

Happy Holiday Shopping, y’all!
