My friend Ashley gave me one of these last year and they are really popular on the campus where I work. Great colors, all stainless steel, doesn't leak and keeps my water cold for hours. Plus, it's a very pleasing shape! Mine is the medium sized but the cute 9oz is right at $25 and is the perfect size for stashing in your purse. It comes in all kinds of fun colors and in woodgrain!

L'Occitane Creme Mains Hand Cream - Vanilla Bouquet
I love the regular L'Occitane hand cream but recently tried the vanilla scented version and it's so nice! I am very picky about fragrance and this isn't too cloying or strong. Just warm, slightly sweet and subtle. It also comes in a little trio set in a cute little yellow tin (which is only slightly over-budget.)
Charley Harper Calendar with stickers
Calendars can seem like an impersonal gift, but nobody would feel that way if the calendar is Charley Harper. I buy myself one every year for my office and this one comes with three giant pages of Charley Harper stickers which are amazing. Otters! Cardinals! Racoons! Owls! Squirrels! Eep!
Microplane Soft-Handle Zester Graters
If you have to buy a gift for someone who cooks or is learning to cook or loves to make cocktails and they are still using the sad side of their box grater to zest things? Get them this microplane immediately. It's life-changing. It obviously zests like a boss and also works great for ginger root, garlic and parmesan cheese. (A note: It's sharp and really, really hurts when you slip and zest your hand but still totally worth it.) If they already have one, might I suggest a pair of OXO locking tongs? They are also crucial to life.
All my gym socks are Bombas ankle because once you start wearing them, you can't imagine not wearing anything else. (They also work great with my new ankle boots because the blister tab keeps them from slipping down in the back.) They make men's and women's styles in a variety of great colors and for every pair they sell, they donate a pair! I really just can't recommend them enough. Plus! If you purchase through my link you get 25% off your first order. Yay.
