Holiday Gifts for Under $50

Holiday shopping is hard — and expensive. We've made it easier (and cheaper!)

For the Foodie

(Items are described beginning with the green canister of olive oil and moving clockwise.)

How’s this for gifts with good taste: Pasolivo’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil — this one infused with lime ($25 for 375 ml at pasolivo.com), and salt and pepper ground from these mini Saltwerks and Pepperwerks mills ($10.95 each at crateandbarrel.com), combine for an easy salad dressing or marinade.  Mixologists will find infinite uses for hibiscus, lavender, rose and fire orchid–infused Elixirs ($12.95 per 9-ounce bottle at floralinfusions.com). A pairing of Colston Bassett Stilton and Marshall’s Farm honey ($42 for the duo at cowgirlcreamery.com) calls for a honey dipper ($2.95 at crateandbarrel.com). For those who are serious about their java, try a handsome stainless steel espresso cup and saucer ($9.95 at crateandbarrel.com). Choffy brews like coffee and smells like chocolate — with neither the caffeine nor the calories ($15 per 12-ounce bag at drinkchoffy.com).
