Love Quotes scarves, $80 

Scarves are an easy gift for the best-dressed on your gift list, but Love Quotes’ scarves, a line based in New York City, offer a little something special. Besides the tag with an encouraging quote about love attached to the scarf, 10 percent of each Love Quotes purchase benefits a charity for children.

Customizable state necklaces, $14 

You can pick one miniature brass state or many to put on a single chain necklace. Ohio necklaces are popular, but consider adding some sentimental significance to your picks by selecting states that you and the recipient have lived or traveled together.

DIY cross-stitch iPhone case, $28 

These iPhone cases could be given as they are, free from stitching, allowing the gift-getter to create his or her own design, or you could get personal and make your own (cross-stitch is deceptively easy). Tigertree is even hosting a workshop to cross-stitch a phone case on Dec. 5 (call to reserve a spot in the class); the evening includes cocktails that will help quell any lingering fear of needle and thread.
