The season of gift giving is also the season of PB&J eating for some. Buying presents, flights home...those credit card charges can add up quickly! Our advice? Give yourself a limit—spend no more than $100 on any gift. There are plenty of stylish pieces for $99 or less just waiting to be scooped up—we've found 25 of them, ahead! The best part: You may even still have some cash leftover with which to treat yourself.

I love these fully customizable perfume bottles from American Eagle! Print your favorite photo of the gift recipient and slip it into the slot on the front. AE offers four different scents (like "soft focus," a mix of sheer musk, vanilla bean, and sandal wood), which means not only is the image personalized, but the fragrance is, too.

Linda Farrow max bear, $58
Move aside balloon dog, Max the bear is my new coffee table/bookshelf conversation piece. This silver figurine is a sunglasses holder, but I think I'll put my optical frames on it. I tend to misplace those, but Max can keep them safe (and in one spot) for me.
Hat attack mini fuzzy bag, $77
Calling all Harry Potter fans: This handbag is giving us Hermione Granger vibes. Despite its small size, it holds a lot more than you think. So far I've managed to stick an umbrella, water bottle, wallet, and keys into it. Anyone who loves mini bags will tell you this is a miracle—and a must have.
