Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts from $15 to $150

Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts from $15 to $150

Posted by Danforth Pewter on Dec 12th 2023

Christmas shopping doesn't have to be a chore. In fact, it can be a joy—a time to discover beautiful, meaningful gifts that will make your friends and family know just how well you know them and how much you love them.

That said, we know that economic times are tough for many people, and Christmas shopping can quickly become an added strain on anyone's budget, especially those with big families and long-held traditions of gift giving.

For that reason, we've curated a beautiful collection of items tiered by price, so you can shop according to your budget, while still finding that light-up-their-face gift. From gnomes to bird ornaments to handspun oil lamps, here is an array of unexpected, timeless items that will help you and your loved ones make memories and share love.



Think you can't get much for less than $15? Think again! From zipper pulls to pocket stones to the adorable Gnomes, there's plenty to find for less than the cost of lunch. We love the idea of buying something and then making something...such as making a little desktop Zen garden that includes Danforth pocket stones!


From ornaments to jewelry to keyrings, there's a wide selection of gifts to choose from under the $25 mark. When you choose a gift that has meaning to the recipient, or that represents a shared memory, your care and intention is the most valuable part of the gift!  Pewter ornament with a camping scene


Know someone who loves watching the hummingbirds flit around their garden...maybe while enjoying their morning cup of joe? In the $50-and-under range, you'll find a beautiful array of thoughtful gifts that really let your loved one know you're thinking of them.


You have options, no matter what you buy. Start with a Gnome Home set, and add other friends over time! The Hammered Jefferson Cup is a gorgeous piece of drinkware...for a similar price, you can buy a Polished or Satin Jefferson Cup and have it engraved. The Studio Line jewelry items, like the necklace shown below, have extra design touches that make them stand out.

Picture frames to capture your favorite memories. Measuring scoops to bring joy and mindfulness to your kitchen endeavors. Exquisitely detailed candlesticks to bring beauty to the details of your holiday decor...all under $100.


Oil lamps, barware, and vases: all spun by hand, all strikingly modern yet classic pieces of home decor and kitchenware that will bring smiles to faces, both when they open your gift, and for many years to come. Our small oil lamps have been a popular favorite for decades. It is true, though, that it can be hard to stop at just one!

We hope this curated selection of gifts has helped you find pleasure and mindfulness in the gift-giving process.

This season, may you find warmth, love, and laughter with all your favorite people, with many nights around the fire sharing old memories and making new ones.
