  1. Top 30 Presents Under $30

    Top 12 Gifts on Etsy for Under $30, via WeeBirdy.com.

    Black and white herringbone air plant pod, AU$23.49, by Bird and Feather Co.

    A stylish present doesn’t have to cost the earth, especially if it’s black and white. The two-tone look emerged as one of this year’s biggest trends in design and decor, and it goes with just about any colour palette. The best thing? It often looks more expensive than it actually is, which isn’t a bad thing.

    I’ve found 30 of my favourite black and white presents for under 30 clams (Australian dollars – we really don’t use clams as currency, although that would be jolly fun), from art prints and rather nice kids t-shirts to tiny faceted earrings and a ceramic baby sloth bowl (seriously amazing).

    After more presents under $30? How about an earthenware planter or a cloud bread board? A pretty painted ceramic ring dish would make a gorgeous present for your best friend. I’ve collected my favourite Etsy items under $30 over on the Wee Birdy Etsy Tastemaker’s Page. Have fun!

    And don’t miss all of my top present picks in my annual Christmas Gift Guides.
