Sometimes you don't need Tiffany ( TIF) or Saks ( SKS) when just a less gaudy trinket will do. That's the basic reason Bauble Bar exists. A couple of friends in New York discovered fashion jewelry was in short supply in their closets, mostly because they didn't know where to start sifting through unwieldy collections and where to shop that wouldn't have either a prohibitive price tag or an air of as-seen-on-TV cheapness. As a result, Bauble Bar began introducing trending items every Monday, spotlighting a new designer each Thursday, breaking off stocking stuffers into its holiday gift suite and partnering with Elle magazine on its holiday shop. Not every jewelry purchase has to be an investment in precious gems and metals. Sometimes it's just about putting the right hardware with the right outfit. Modcloth
ModCloth built its reputation on retro dresses and vintage frocks, but its selection of fun little toys is a stocking stuffer's fantasy. Let aspiring Mad Men cast members browse the rockabilly racks, cocktail collection and bevy of little black dresses. Your portable turntable, owl tea set and ice cream sandwich iPhone case will make just as big of a holiday impression for less cash.
