Calling all procrastinators....Christmas is only 6 days away, that means online shopping might be out of the question, depending on how much your income is! And mall/discount stores/boutiques are a crazy mad frenzy--trust me I just came from one! Well listen up, I got a little secret...Cost Plus World Market. You heard right, yep that store the one you always pass by, only going in when you need an extra bottle of Pinot. Well I just snapped up 3 presents for under $25! This place has it all: fine wine, gift sets, candles, home fragrances, exotic wares/jewelry from India! Wow my future mother-in-law is gonna love me!
World Markets can be found everywhere in the Bay Area, there is sure to be one nearby you. There are tons of gifts under $10--hello recession! Check out my fave finds in this thrifty category....
For best friend. Being a cool, sexy, 20 something year old, in SF can be a challenge to shop for, why they have everything! Everything except for gorgeous lanterns to decorate their balcony overlooking Nob Hill. These will look great year round, fab summer shindigs, to toasty winter parties, doubling as Xmas lights!
For Mother-in-law, aunt, sister, or perhaps me (hint hint) Whoever you buy these for you will surely feel smart for only spending $5 on each, the diffuser or the jumbo candle! As a chronic candle user, I can tell you these babies last for months-up to three, depending on how offen you light up!
For that snobby wanna-be connoisseur who think they know all there is to know about vino/ cool co-worker/ brother/ anyone who fancies wine! Ever get caught at a resto, starring down at a 17 page wine list, not knowing what to order with the mussels, and end up with the house specialty because you were uninformed? Never fear, after gifting this present, your giftee will be in the know, and hopefully buying the next round!
So whatever your dilemma is, Cost Plus World Market has got you covered! Pick up an extra few bottles for you next holiday party. Grab some stocking stuffer under $10. While your there, make sure to check out the gift baskets--to die for, wine, cheese, and chocolate, ahhh, a girl's best friend (diamonds can't hurt either!)
