The Under-$5 Gift Guide

Your goal? Give cheaply, rather than spend dumbly

Lastly, there are those people who just will not be satisfied with anything less than a designer label. It is for these pretentious jerks (hey, I'm one of them!) that the Marc Jacobs cheapie accessories store on the corner of Bleecker and Perry is intended. In our range, the pickings are meager: A pair of fingerless gloves in dull black or brown are a mere $3, but for $2 more you can get them striped in fetching combos like purple and black. In truth, their only selling point is the Marc Jacobs tag, but who can put a price on that? So go for the extra two bucks. Who knows what the future may bring?
