Finding the perfect holiday gift can prove challenging, especially when you’re on a budget. But it is possible to find something amazing for under $100 — yes, even for your geek-chic friend (you know the one — surgically attached to her phone screen?).
One of the best options out there is finding a cute accessory for your pal’s favorite tech toy. You might not be able to pick up the latest tablet, but you can wrap up this gorgeous (and functional!) Marc by Marc Jacobs tablet clutch. And this Lanvin case, covered in doodles by designer Alber Elbaz, will make her iPhone look super stylish — if she ever puts it down.
And we’re particularly smitten with this pair of Warby Parker glasses. Dubbed the “Carmichael,” the limited-edition specs were inspired by the music of Beck. The frames come in a “Crystal” clear color and a “Root Beer” brown that are equal parts eclectic and charming. But Warby Parker has loads of other great options too, which is why a Warby Parker gift card makes an equally amazing present. (Bonus: Every gift card comes with a snowman-making kit.)
Add in a few retro touches — like an old-school handset and some quirky personalized pencils — and you’ve got the perfect roundup for the geek-chic girl in your life.
