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]


An old brooch, a beautiful button, sprigs of fragrant evergreen—these are just a few of the creative touches you can add to your wrappings this season for a personalized gift that incorporates a bit of stylish whimsy. It’s a perfect way to add that extra-thoughtful touch to a standard paper and bow. See more inspirational ways to repurpose items you already have around your home at Design*Sponge.

The brainchild of three young college men, the nonprofit Krochet Kids International has one mission: to empower people to rise above poverty.

They’re doing just that—empowering—by teaching women in Uganda to crochet hats, the profits of which go directly back to the hat’s maker to help her break the cycle of poverty and dependence on humanitarian aid. We’re happy to announce that these hats are now available both online and in store. It was our pleasure to speak with Stewart Ramsey, co-founder of Krochet Kids, about the program’s goals and how it all came to life.

What gave you the idea to start Krochet Kids?

In our naivety, my friends and I wanted to change the world! But in reality, Krochet Kids started because we listened to the need. In traveling and volunteering in different places around the world, we made friends with people who were often subjected to unjust and difficult circumstances—things like war, disease, famine and living on less than $2 a day. In an effort to help with the little resources we had as a group of young college boys, we turned to crocheting as an opportunity to employ people who wanted to work. With yarn and hook in hand, we traveled to Africa and taught a small group of women how to crochet hats.

What do you want customers to know about you?

First, I’d want customers to know that we are a nonprofit. We are fully transparent about how much of a hat purchase actually changes the life of the person who signed it. Our customers need to understand that by purchasing a hat, a woman is able to provide food, water, clothes and education for up to six dependents. Purchasing a hat literally pulls people out of poverty, those living on less than $2 a day. It also allows for the next generation to be educated, so they can pursue their own hopes and dream. Customers have an opportunity to get to know the person that made their product and interact with them on our website.

Why partner with Nordstrom?

Nordstrom has an amazing role in all of this. Together, the more hats we sell, the more lives we change. For instance, to get ready for our first Nordstrom order, Krochet Kids grew from 10 ladies to 100 in a matter of months. The total impact grew from 60 individuals being directly impacted to 600. That is just the direct impact; there is an indirect impact of another 22 individuals per beneficiary. Villages in Northern Uganda are experiencing the positive effects of global economics in ways they never have before. It’s an opportunity to educate customers about a new product and a new way of doing business that is beneficial to the world.

What’s next for Krochet Kids?

Krochet Kids will continue to grow in sub-Saharan Africa by employing more women and sourcing raw materials. In addition to growth in Africa, we have already taken trips to countries in South America and Asia where women and their families find themselves in destitute situations. Krochet Kids will expand its product offering from around the globe and change lives while we do it.

You can purchase Krochet Kids online or in store at The Rail and BP.
