These are a Few of my Favorite Things {Part Deux}

I'm once again linking up with Elise, for the final installment of "My Favorite Things" gift guide. Today's guide is made up of gifts for friends and family under $100. Most of my friends and family are female, so my guide is a bit one dimensional. I did try to pick out different types of gifts, that were inexpensive, but still lovely.

1] Essie Nail Polish
What girl wouldn't want a holiday gift set of nail colors? Any brand would do, but I am a bit partial to the lovely sets Essie produces. I've received nail polishes in the past and I love having fun new shades to try out in the new year.

2] Infinity scarf
Is there anything more cozy than an infinity scarf? My first infinity was a gift from someone, and now I can't get enough. Not only will it keep your loved one warm, it will also add a pretty pop to their outfit. I call that a win, win!

3] Portolano iTouch gloves
As we get closer to winter and the cold, gloves are a must. But, they can be a bother when trying to get into a touch screen phone. Enter cute, iTouch gloves. Warm, pretty and functional for the gorgeous girl on the go!

4] Sole Society earrings
Some might say jewelry should only be reserved for beaus and husbands, but I disagree. Cute baubles, that dress up an outfit are quite fun to receive from anyone. These bow earrings are cute, classy and won't break the bank.

5] CitySlips pink shoes
My aunt gave me a set of flats that fit in my purse a few Christmas seasons ago and they are one of my favorite presents ever. I enjoy wearing high heels, but now that I'm older I can't wear them as long as I could in the past. Your girlfriends will love this gift, I promise.

6] Porcelain mug
I've seen many a monogram in blog land, and I have to say, monogrammed mugs have become a new favorite of mine. Simple, sweet and cost effective, too. Coffee or tea just tastes better out of a pretty mug, don't you think?

What are some of your go to gifts for friends and family? Or what is your favorite gift from a friend? Only 23 more days till Christmas! Happy shopping, sweet friends!

Love those nail polish colours. I'm trying to decide on a colour for Mexico and I'm leaning towards one that I already have. It's called 'Cute As A Button' by Essie and it looks very similar to the 4th nail polish above. Great picks!!
