Earlier this week, we shared 10 gifts under $50 and now we’re going above that for those looking to spend a bit more. This gift guide takes the budget up to $100, opening the options up but with gifts that are still accessible, like textiles, glassware, a planter and a minimalist clock. Take a look and check off some people on your gift list!

Sunshine Baby Pillow Cover by DittoHouse \\\ $85
Inspired by the designer’s “sunshine baby,” this playful, graphic pillow cover is perfect for those who steer clear of basic decor. With a black and white striped background, the happy face pops with cross eyes, rosy cheeks and a cute tongue hanging out, making it impossible not to smile every time it’s looked at.

Panton Tray Small by Verner Panton for Georg Jensen \\\ $99
Designed by the iconic Verner Panton, this mirror polished stainless steel tray was inspired by Panton crumpling up a piece of paper and asking the silversmith to recreate the smoothed out shape. It makes for a dramatic and intriguing piece to rest on any table with the way its random shape creates light and shadows depending on how light is hitting it.

Brick Click Clock by Gingko \\\ $94
This minimalist clock comes in four colorways, but we’re particularly fond of the aluminum one with a white LED display. It’s a great addition for anyone you know that doesn’t like clutter on their nightstand but still relies on a clock to keep time and wake them up.

Hapi Self-Watering Pot by House Raccoon \\\ $75
With everyone spending so much time at home these days, it’s no wonder plants have skyrocketed in popularity. Not only do they help clean the air, they change the feel of any room they’re in. Whether they’re a plant lover or a novice, this self-watering planter is a great gift for anyone longing for the outdoors.

Tool Pen by Mininch \\\ $69
Remember those ‘Pop-A-Point’ rainbow pens and crayons? Well, Mininch applied that same clever idea to the “world’s first ‘Pop-A-Point’ screwdriver”! This compact pocket tool is ideal for anyone who likes to fix things like mobile devices, glasses, watches, electronics, toys and any number of smaller objects.

Plum Towel by Minna Goods \\\ $98
For anyone who appreciates beautiful textiles, this handwoven towel is lightweight and fast drying making it ideal for summertime near the water or at home after a shower. They can even use it as a wrap or coverup at the beach or pool!

Concrete Centerpiece Bowl by Pretti.Cool \\\ $95
Spanning 9.25″ in diameter, this textured concrete bowl can be used as a catchall for keys, wallet and everything else dropped when arriving home, but it also makes the perfect centerpiece for a dining or coffee table. Ideal for anyone who appreciates handmade gifts.

Vaso Sake Set by Sempli \\\ $70
For the sake lover or just anyone who loves a cocktail, this three-piece set is great for enjoying a drink after dinner solo or as a pair (think newlyweds!). When not in use, your recipient has something beautiful to put on display until their next adult beverage.

Ring Rubber Gris Coaster Set by Slash Objects \\\ $78
Know anyone who just moved or got some new furniture? These stylish coasters, made from post consumer recycled rubber and brass, are a necessity for keeping tables from getting water rings or just elevating someone’s coffee or tea game.

Squiggle 3D-Printed Ring by Zimarty \\\ $95
For the jewelry lover in your life, this unique ring makes a bold statement on the hand with its cool black squiggles that were inspired by the designer’s doodles.

If you’re still undecided or haven’t found the right gift, there’s one universal gift that is well-liked by friends, family, colleagues, and kids alike: the Design Milk gift card. Let your recipient pick out something for themselves from our shop. We’re sure that they’ll find something they didn’t even know they wanted.
