Gifts for Him Under $100

Not to leave out the gents, we have 10 more favorite picks from our Gift Guide for guys—all under $100—with more ideas to fit any gift-giving budget.

1 – Cashmere, Sweaters & Fleece. These all make great gifts, but if your guy doesn’t have a black V-neck cashmere sweater, help him out—stat. It’s a cold-weather workhorse for layering over button-up shirts, under blazers or just on its own. [Pictured: 1901 Trim Fit Cashmere V-Neck Sweater. $99.50]

2 – Scarves, Hats & Gloves. Plenty of options here to help keep him warm this winter. We can’t get enough of tech gloves made with fingertip materials that let you use your touchscreen without taking them off. [Pictured: The North Face E-Tip Gloves. $40]

3 – Jeans & Pants. You can’t beat a classic. We’re all for chinos and slacks, but you won’t find anything in his closet that will get more wear than a simple pair of dependable jeans. [Pictured: Levi’s Red Tab ‘514’ Slim Straight Leg Jeans. $68]

4 – Gift Cards. Stumped? Nordstrom Gift Cards are ideal for sending in the mail… to the guy who has everything. [Pictured: Nordstrom Festive Flurries Gift Card. $25-$1,000]

5 – Bags & Accessories. You can’t go wrong with a tie or bag, but a pair of bright, high-tech headphones or ear buds is sure to be a welcome surprise for anyone’s inner audiophile. [Pictured: Urbanears ‘Medis’ Ear Buds. $50]

6 – Watches. Whether the recipient is a boyfriend, gentleman, jetsetter or outdoorsy type, every guy needs a few watches to rely on. This minimalist Nixon (in 13 colors) adds just the right amount of levity and style to a timepiece. [Pictured: Nixon ‘The Time Teller’ Watch. $60]

7 – Shoes & Slippers. From dressy to casualrugged to lazy. Get him something comfy to grab the morning paper in. These UGG® Australia slippers are so comfortable, “like walking on heaven.” —MicheleR, 5-star review. [Pictured: UGG Australia ‘Ascot’ Slipper. $99.95]

8 – Sleepwear & Robes. Speaking of things to lounge in, nothing says “perfect lazy Sunday” like flannel pants and a robe. [Pictured: 1901 Flannel Sleep Pants. $29.50]

9 – Fragrance & Grooming. A distinctive fragrance you’re sure he’ll love is always a good gift idea, but also consider total-body skincare—like a head-to-toe set that’ll take care of him from body scrub to shave cream. [Pictured: Kiehl’s ‘Ultimate Man’ Holiday Set. $50; $72 value]

10Coats & Outerwear. Find the best outwear for your guy with our Ultimate Coat Guide. A utilitarian, three-season jacket that’s lightweight and waterproof is a smart choice for anyone. [Pictured: The North Face ‘Venture’ Jacket. $99]

Gifts for Her Under $100

We love gift giving, but sometimes a helping hand to find the perfect item would be welcome. Here are just a few of our Gift Guide favorites under $100, with further inspiration for all price ranges.

1 – Cashmere & Sweaters. A cashmere scarf, pair of gloves and sweater should be a staple in every woman’s closet. We love all types of sweaters, but the decadence and versatility of a classic cashmere V-neck is always a go-to for looking put together. [Pictured: Only Mine V-Neck Cashmere Sweater. $79]

2 – Handbags & Tech Accessories. The perfect handbag is a girl’s best friend. Find inspiration for the gift of a new companion in our top-rated gift handbags. Or, help her personalize her favorite gadget with tech accessories. [Pictured: kate spade new york rigid iPhone 4 & 4S cover. $40]

3 – Denim. If you’re giving the gift of denim, we suggest bold colors and prints on skinny silhouettes. Shop our denim trend guide for more looks she’ll love. [Pictured: Blue Essence Colored Denim Skinny Jeans. $98]

4 – Shoes & Slippers. A comfortable slipper or casual shoe is a great place to start when it comes to giving footwear, and there are plenty of ideas in our customer favorites. We’re fond of these Sperry Top-Sider® rain boots, which come in a rainbow of colors and are much more fun for rainy-day puddle jumping than our favorite Louboutin heels.  [Pictured: Sperry Top-Sider ‘Pelican’ Tall Rain Boot. $69.95]

5 – Gift Cards. If you’re having trouble deciding what she’ll love the most, how about letting her choose with the gift of a shopping spree? Go with her and make a day of it shopping and catching up. [Pictured: Nordstrom Joyous Wishes. $25-$1,000]

6 – Jewelry & Watches. Earrings, simple necklaces, bracelets and watches are all classics, but we’re especially smitten with a great set of bangles. Their sparkling stackability means they can perk up anything from denim to date night. [Pictured: Nadri Pavé Bangle. $58]

7 – Scarves, Hats & Gloves. Everyone needs cold-weather accessories, which is probably why these are among the most given of gifts. (We keep a few extra on hand for unexpected guests.) But staying warm doesn’t mean she needs to be disconnected—these tech gloves let her use her gadget without taking them off. [Pictured: Echo ‘Touch’ Tech Gloves. $35]

8 – Outerwear. Keep her cozy with fleece. Keep her trendy with faux fur. Or give her versatility with a beautiful cape—it’s an outerwear essential. [Pictured: KUT from the Kloth Toggle Cape. $98]

9 – Sleepwear, Robes & Lingerie. Intimate items and sleepwear for lounging can make great gifts. We especially love the bold stripes and bright colors of these Josie robes. [Pictured: Josie ‘Tutti Fruity’ Terry Robe. $68]
