As the holiday gift-giving season inches closer and closer, the list of presents seems to grow by the minute. From something for a party host, to teacher appreciation, to your little brother in college, it can seem never-ending. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite gifts at Atlanta shops all over the city. The best part? We’ve capped the price at $50! Bye-bye sticker shock, hello holiday goodness!

For the Native Southerner

Need the perfect gift for someone who considers mac and cheese a vegetable? Look no further than Vivid Boutique in Decatur, where we found this Southern food sign by Old Dirty Type artist George Hanna for $40. Best part? It’s handmade and sealed, so you can use it indoors or out!

Lou Lou, in Ponce City Market, is a great go-to for jewelry and accessories for every outfit. This wallet ($18) and ID or business card holder ($15) come in a rainbow of colors, but we’re partial to the orange and pink combo.

The crystal pictured was made into a pendant with a silver chain for $40. However, you can also give the loose stone in its natural form.
