The Little Things: Cute Gift Ideas under $15

I may be the only one, but I'm a big fan of lots of small gifts vs. one big one when it comes to gift giving (and receiving!).  It literally becomes the gift that keeps on giving!  You get to experience the joy of opening up a gift multiple times, have the ability to hit several notes and emotions all in one sitting...AND, if you screw up in the gift picking, you have like 4 or so more chances to redeem yourself!

I love anything with my initial...the simpler the better.  Couldn't pass up this "C" canvas shopper tote while browsing at Forever 21.  Great for shopping, groceries, the spa (pretty much anything!)...and it was only $3.80!  (Find it here)

This is exactly how I feel in the morning before my cup of coffee!  When you fill the mug with warm liquid, it perks up just like most of us do after a dose of caffeine.  Great gift for the office co-worker or someone that can't live without that morning pick-me-up!  $14.65 (Find it here)

Ok so not really a "gift", but who wouldn't be happy getting one of these cake postcards in their mailbox!?   I'm obsessed with these little facades!  The artist makes them in a variety of cake "flavors" and they're guilt free (zero calories!!).  Be different, send something unexpected! Cake Postcards are $15 which includes postage.  (Find it here and here)
