The hierarchy in gift-giving is no secret. You have the $10-and-under gifts you get for your favorite co-worker, the $25 range for the friend you like going to bars with but wouldn’t, like, bring to a family function, and then you have the friend(s) to whom you send every semi-funny meme and iMessage all day while at your desk. You want to give them the world! Or, at the very least, a gift that they’ll actually use and want to show off.
Here you’ll find over a dozen gifts — ranging from fancy candles and bougie hand creams to (on-sale!) Vetements tube socks — all of which ring in right at, or under, $100.
Racked occasionally accepts products for research and reviewing purposes. For more information, see our ethics policy here.
