Gift ideas for $100 or less?
I need to get a christmas present for my twin sister. I've left it this long, so I need to order something soon!

I'm looking for something ideally less than $100 or maybe a little bit more (I'm a college student!). All the other threads have gift ideas like "chanel clutch" etc. but I could really use links to online stores or ebay that are reasonable.

She's 19 and also a college student. She isn't into gadgets (I wouldn't be posting here if she was) or preppy style, but she's open to most everything else. I'm looking for something besides the normal scarves/gloves/hats ideas that are usually cheap. Everyone on fashionspot has really great taste, so I'm anticipating your ideas! (Which I really appreciate, by the way.)

When I can't come up with one great present that fits the budget I have (which is basically all the time) I give two or three smaller presents that make a good whole, so to speak. A few little things that I think the person would like, but that really wouldn't be much of a gift on their own.

For example I gave a friend a book about making sushi at home (she likes sushi), a cute sweater from H&M and a lipgloss in a shade I thought she would like

More packages to unwrap = more fun. But it doesn't end up costing a lot.

I love the gift boxes from The Body Shop. They have bigger, pricier ones, and small cheap ones. The smaller ones are so cute They are great for friends, sisters, mother-in-laws and so on

^ I'm one of those people who dislikes gift boxes from the body shop!

Firstly, I get it every year.
Secondly, I get other brands too.
And lastly, people don't know what smell I like

Blondes: that's exactly the kind of idea I'm looking for!

Does anyone have links to specific ideas?

How about this coat from the Erin Fetherston for Target collection? It's cute and cut really nice, plus it's a good price (it runs a size larger though): http://www.target.com/Erin-Fethersto...e=1&rh=&page=1

Or some cute baubles from this store (the buckle bracelet looks great):

How about books? Some books on fashion would be interesting (try amazon.com)..or whatever she may be interested in.

Good luck!

E-bay - vintage jewlery.. it doesn't cost very much you could easily find some very nice pieces for under 100 US
