Lorenzo’s Picks: 85 Gifts Under $50

Posted on December 10, 2016


There’s still time to shop, darlings! Think of this post as Lorenzo, your personal shopper, frantically scrambling through every store in a fabulous mall, grabbing every chic little, fun little, touching little gift for everyone left on your list. Once again, he’s here for you, kittens. And once again, you have no idea how much you’re helping to temper his shopping addiction toward the common good.  He’s given you his recs on children’s gifts, his fabulous list of gifts for under ten dollars, his equally fabulous list of gifts for under twenty dollars, and NOW, he’s here to help you shop for the people you must really care about by giving you his best pics for gifts under fifty bucks.

Let’s go shopping, darlings! First department:


Who doesn’t want a butter dish shaped like a man’s shoe? You should know that we are OBSESSED with Jonathan Adler and not only have a ton of his wares, but metric shit-ton of his holiday ornaments. Every Adler piece on this list comes highly T Lo-approved and several of them we own already. We just love his accessible, unpretentious whimsicality. Love the “Muse” creamer and sugar set. We own the coasters and the fox wine stopper.

Also loving: that adorable honey pot bear, not to mention his matching teapot. And can we talk fondue here for a second? It’s the perennial gift fave and Lo found you every fabulous option you could possibly want to choose from.

Those copper pineapple measuring cups are TO-DIE.


Next up, suggestions for those people closer to your inner circle:


Of COURSE we have the Jonathan Adler cat ornaments, dolls.

Since the dollar amount’s a little higher, Lo took the opportunity to really get personal with these gifts, picking out jewelry and bag options as well as the normal gifty fare. Love all the kitty cat bags, of course. And the Betsey Johnson cupcake is crazy fun. Lo is feeling the leather toiletry bags and that apron that looks like a cocktail dress, which is probably the perfect hostess gift. And an iPad stand for the kitchen counter might not seem like the sexiest gift in the world, but we bet the received would get a lot of use out of it and wind up thanking you for it – especially if they like to cook.


And finally, the one you’ve been waiting for:


Now who doesn’t want matching Han and Leia towels, we ask you? Don’t answer that. Even if you don’t, we bet you know someone who does. How about that Jonathan Adler phone dock? Or OMG THAT PUNK HEAD MATCH HOLDER. But if you don’t love Adler as much as we do, perhaps you’re in the market for goofy Christmas hats or nerdy cheeseboards or a light saber candlestick. Perhaps that kitty tote is calling to you, or that incredible steampunk flask. One thing’s for sure: a set of airplane cocktail kits would never be unappreciated.
