I do all my christmas shopping at the MoMA store. There's a discount for members, and they actually have a ton of great giftable stuff in the $50 range. This is the high end.

Also, you think a 1500 dollar endtable is pricey? Go look at anything sold by design within reach. Easily half their inventory is over 5k.
