Clumsy Chic Christmas Gift Guide Under 100

With only a month to gear up for the festival season ahead (some of us will dream of a white Christmas and some of us may be lucky enough to experience it). I thought it was about time I shared my annual gift guide with everyone looking to work their wallets. You may not have your entire list of recipients figured out yet but these are great stocking stuffers that the special person in your life will surely enjoy regardless of their taste and style. They’re gifts that are functional, stylish yet affordable. It ranges from cheeky note cards, my personal favorite planner, travel-sized colognes, and life-saving battery chargers. Most of these items are available in Doha and the rest ships to Doha within 5 working days (thank you Shopbop). Let’s get shopping!

Warning- shopaholics be ready for the verification calls from your banks.

Check back next week for Anthony’s annual gift guide for men and splurge-worthy presents that will make your special lady love you more.

1. Zara Two-tone Poncho $59: Ponchos are one of the hottest trends this season thanks to Burberry. This Zara version is only a fraction of the price and is on point with the neutral tones, another trend of the season. (Zara is located in Landmark and Villaggio mall).

2. Set Editions Mercy Cards $16: Say how you feel with these cheeky note cards. Avoid confrontation and let this card do the dirty work for you.

3. Superga Classic Sneakers $65: This cult classic sneaker is a ‘can’t go wrong’ gift. With the sneaker trend still going strong, your lady will be marching with the rest of the sneaker-loving pack

4. Muji A5 2015 Planner $13: I’ve gone through a number of planners before but this one is my personal favorite. It has a soft cover, weekly and monthly pages, plenty of space to write notes in, and it’s made out of premium Japanese paper. (Muji store is located in Dubai Mall).

5. Jo Malone’s Cologne Collection $100: Jo Malone’s most popular colognes in one pack is an all-rounder gift. The trick is to layer different scents to find your own signature combination. (Jo Malone is located in Villaggio mall).

6. Umbra 3-tier Jewelry Stand $20: This jewelry stand is both functional and stylish perfect for displaying your jewelry collection. It’s also very durable, I’ve had one for 5 years and it can still hold the weight of my chunky necklaces. (Umbra jewelry storages are available at The One store in Landmark mall).

7. Cuisinart Classic Waffle Maker $30: Women like us like to bake and eat cake. This waffle maker will motivate anyone to get up in the morning and whip up a delicious waffle. (Cuisinart waffle makers are available at Tavola store in Royal Plaza mall).

8. Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation $60: This battery pack quickly charges any USB device including your tablet, iPhone or iPad. You will never miss out on any Instagram feed again. (Available in Apple store in Doha).

9. Adidas by Stella McCartney Yoga Mat $96: We all need an extra boost to go workout and sometimes that boost can come from wearing pretty gym gear. Make yoga practice more fun with this colorful yoga matt. (Available in Adidas store in Landmark, Villaggio and Lagoona mall).
