1. Cashmere Cardigan: This one is worth the splurge. Super-soft cashmere that goes with everything and will last for years . . . looks much sexier over lingerie than a bathrobe, but still just as comfy.

2. Mesh Bra: (Also available in underwire.) Adorable and sexy and matches . . .

3. Mesh Undies: (Also available in a thong.)

4. Romper:(Also available in a jumpsuit.) I love this romper — adjustable straps and pretty lace detail.

5. Sleep Mask: Use it for getting restorative, deep sleep or as a blindfold . . .

6. Striped PJs: Super-soft, relaxed fit. Reviewers LOVE these pjs.

7. Gold Wine Glasses: How fun are these? Also in copper.

8. Candle: Candles are always a good idea.

9. Mini Bluetooth Speaker: This speaker is MINI but reviewers say it’s surprisingly loud. It comes in a ton of colors and takes up such a small amount of space — perfect for throwing into a bag and going.

10. Plush Throw: Over 1,200 reviews and almost a full 5-stars. In a bunch of colors.

11. Crystal Stud Earrings: Gorgeous. A perfect gift that won’t break the bank. (Also in a ton of colors).

12. Heart & Arrow Lipstick: I love the packaging on this hydrating lipstick that goes on super-smooth and leaves a shiny finish.

13. Massage Oil: A good massage requires oil. This one is a best-seller on Amazon.

14. Talk, Flirt, Dare Game: After reading the reviews, this game actually sounds like it would be fun instead of cheesy, and reviewers say it would make a great gift.

7. Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set: Upgrade from plastic spoons to these oval-shaped spoons (to fit in spice jars) with curved handles (so you can set them down without worrying about tipping).

8. Stoneware Measuring Cups: These are adorable. Would be fun to use while baking with the kids.

9. Salad Servers: Also in white or black swirl, these servers are made of smoothly polished resin and would look great with any serving bowl.

10. Retro Style 5-Quart Stand Mixer: OK, so this isn’t under $50, but it would make an awesome gift! I love the design of this mixer, and it comes in seven different colors to choose from.

11. Cake Stand: Every time I bake a cake, I’m sad that I don’t have a cake stand. This one is beautiful.

12. Pie Bird: I had never heard of a pie bird, but they release steam from your pies while they bake ensuring a crispy crust without overbaking the filling. Mom will love this.

13. Date Night In Cookbook: The author writes about reconnecting with her spouse through cooking at home together . . . she includes stories about their relationship in addition to delicious recipes for two.

  1. Love this but can we get one for men? After 10 + years of marriage I’m at a lost beyond beard oil and whiskey ( great but I’ve been gifting it for a bit). Also responsibly priced too.
