One of my favorite gifts to give is a piggy bank. Not only are piggy banks classic, but fabulously functional, inspiring a trait I wish I had. If 2009 has taught us anything, it's that you can never go wrong saving your pennies. So here are my three favorite piggies, at least one of which some luckies on my list will be receiving this year. Sort of creepy and very cool, check out Harry Allen's Bank in the Form of a Pig, made from the cast of an actual pig (no piggies were hurt in the cast-making process). Available at AREAWARE for $95 in pink; also available in white, chrome, gold, copper, hot pink, mint green and black to fit into nearly any color scheme.
For the perfect amount of sparkle, and the perfect price tag, hit your local Old Navy for their bling-y piggy. My shop only had them in gold, but I hear they're available in a disco rainbow. At a mere $5, you can get this one for folks on your list and yourself. Y'know...if you needed a bit of inspiration to become budget-minded in 2010. Not that I know anyone like that.
