Does an awesome gift have to break the bank? Not at all. We found 15 perfect style gifts great for anyone on your list, and they are all under $50.
Specialized desk nameplates, $28, He Said, She Said
Sometimes you need a nameplate that says a little more than “Aly sits here.” Philadelphia expert and restaurateur Valerie Safran created “He Said, She Said” specialized desk nameplates, which have been wittily rewritten with modern mantras, verbiage, personal statements and colloquialisms. There are more than 20 different expressions, ranging from the somewhat tame, like “Mr. Wonderful,” “Girl Boss,” and I’m Kind of a Big Deal” to the more pointed, including “Make Today Your Bitch,” and “Talented Motherf*cker.”
Coffee mugs, $15, Mugnacious
Coffee mugs are a classic on every gift list, but make it something a little bit out-of-the-box if you want to make a (good!) impression. A new line of cheeky mugs says what we're all thinking. They poke fun at office jargon and pop culture — it's a fun, refreshing take on what is a typically boring playing field. And, it presents options. Your giftee may use the mugs for coffee, but they work just as well with many other types of beverages. For example, she might find yourself in a situation where she wants others to think she’s drinking coffee, but she’s actually drinking something else — we’ve all been there.

BitterSweet, starts at $45, Bittersweet.is
A bracelet that was specifically designed to keep your elastic hair band on your wrist but as a beautiful bracelet. We all know women who keep that elastic hair band around their wrists at all times of the day — exposing themselves to possible infection.
