Spend A Little More (Under $100)

Your budding style maven friends know that accessories can make or break an outfit. While many creatives opt for fancy Nikon neck gear, these fashion-forward men and women would much rather be in front of the camera or styling for an upcoming photo shoot. Handmade accessories are the way to go.

For the well-dressed sophisticated gentleman, Bernard James’ Wilson Beaded Lava Bracelet ($100) is a great choice. Composed of black beaded lava rocks, onyx and sterling silver, this piece is a crowd favorite from the designer’s Hunt & Gather Project. For the whimsical woman on your list, we suggest Erica Weiner’s vintage YSL zipper pull earrings at $40. Made from actual 1970s YSL zipper pulls and equipped with 14k gold posts, they’re sure to turn a few heads.

While your creative peeps might already have a Netflix or Blockbuster membership, there are plenty of film gems they probably don’t know about yet. With Film Movement‘s DVD of the Month Club, a brand new, award-winning indie film is mailed to them each month, before the general public can get it. And there’s no need to send anything back! A three-month subscription is $45.99.

    That was a GREAT peice done on 60 minutes about hmseleos families.I am a volunteer director at a Food Pantry in Troy, NY and when I watched your video on Hard Times Generation about the children who are hmseleos/hungry in Florida it really hit home. We too are seeing such an increase in families coming into our pantry looking for help. Many of them are what we are calling The working poor . They are families that are trying to stay afloat in this tough economy and often have to choose between feeding their families or paying electric bills, mortgages, medical costs and so many other bills. We opened our pantry in 2000 and have seen a GREAT increase in just the past year. It is sad to see these parents coming in with their heads hung in shame and asking for help when they tell us only a year ago they themselves GAVE food to local pantries. More months than not we worry that we as a pantry will run out of food and personal products to give to those who come looking for help, but through the grace of God it always comes. We have gone from averaging 25-30 families a month looking for assistance to more than double that in most months. When people come to us and want to know why we do this we usually just say.. We are all one pay check away from being in their shoes, so while we can, we help !
