As joyous as the festive season may be, it’s not without its qualms. Outside of navigating nagging in-laws or dodging your aunt’s questions over your perennially single status, one of the biggest Christmas stresses is the potential blow to your budget.
Whether you’ve been given a strict Kris Kringle limit or you’re just trying to manage your Christmas spending, we feel about sticking to a gifting budget the same way we do about mulled wine: it is always a good idea.
Shopping to a price limit doesn’t mean you have to forgo finding a chic gift, either. From fabulous homewares to fashion staples, we’ve found the best gifts under $100 for 2023.
