For the ultimate laid back vibe, I present to you this Striped Fair Isle Poncho ($22.90, forever21.com) with the tassels at the hem and the blanket-like feel. It's the perfect throw-over to take a simple jeans and tee to a whole other level.
Take care of all your coworkers and/or the kids' teachers in one fell (but personalized!) swoop with this Limited Edition Golden Monogram Mug ($10, anthropologie.com). Everyone can use a fancy gilded mug with their initial on it.
