If you’re anything at all like me, you are frequently stumped for gifts. Mrs. E. is a great gifter and thrifty to boot. In her spirit and in light of these economic times™, I’ve asked a few of my favourite people to compile a quick list of luxurious little presents all under USD$100, $50 and $25 in case you really have to splash out.
Today M. Lane of The Epic comes to our rescue with his suggestions. Mr. Lane knows a thing or two about livin’, as Mr. Sinatra would say and I think that his choices convey a healthy sense of luxury, style and practicality. Taken together, these seem like the foundation for the perfect evening, train trip or hotel stay.
I am pleased to submit my 2009 gift suggestions for this year.
UNDER $100: Rosewood Corkscrew with leather case, Brooksbrothers.com [$98]
UNDER $50: One year subscription to the Paris Review [$40] parisreview.com OR A bottle of Pinch 15yr Scotch [$30] beveragewarehouse.com
UNDER $25: Cashmere blend socks, Polo.com [$24] [ed: I couldn’t find the Polo socks, but sourced these through eBay and Bloomingdale’s. Click the photo to go to the store.]
Let the Holiday’s commence in style!
