As much fantasy gifts are fun to look at and think about, the reality for most people, even most luxury customers, is that we've all got a budget to stick to. In keeping with that idea, we've constructed a series of price-tiered gift guides to make shopping with your checkbook in mind just a bit easier. Last week, we searched the Internet for gifts under $500, and today, we've doubled down to the best gifts under $250.
Not only did we go looking for small gifts like sunglasses, scarves and fashion jewelry, but we tried to find as many solid handbag options as possible with that budget cap in mind. There were more than you'd think; we found great clutches, crossbodies and totes in that price range, plus all the extras any gift-recipient would need to finish their look perfectly. ($250 still too much? We've got an under-$100 guide coming later this week, and you can check out all of our gift recommendations right this way.)
