Halloween’s long over, and you know what that means. Gift lists and holiday shopping! And, unfortunately, headaches and credit card bills. Well, don’t fret. For those under a tight budget or stumped for gift ideas, I’ve compiled a list of all the best presents under $100 for the holiday season.
For the Tech Junkie
If there’s someone on your gift list who can’t get enough of tech gear, consider yourself lucky. Between the always-dropping prices of media storage and inexpensive devices like MP3 players and drawing tablets, you can get something for everyone without draining your bank account.
For the Movie Lover
A true movie lover has already made the switch to Blu-ray. Sorry, DVD aficionados, but it’s time to start future-proofing your movie collection. These classics and blockbusters are just waiting to be experienced in high definition. Can you imagine Inception in full 1080p? I can’t wait.
Avatar (Extended Collector’s Edition), $24.99; Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy, $47.99; Inception, $24.99; The Godfather Trilogy – Coppola Restoration Gift Set, $47.99.
Coupons to use before you shop: Amazon.
For the Foodie
It doesn’t matter if the foodie on your list is a wannabe cook or a top chef. Give them the tools they need to perfect their pumpkin risotto with pan-seared scallops or toast with butter – some people need all the help they can get – and they’ll definitely be happy.
T-Fal Flexigrip Hard Anodized 12-pc Set, $99.99, Target; Bodum Shin Bistro 8-Cup Coffee Press, $29.99, Target; KitchenAid Tools and Gadgets 17-pc. Set, $38.59, Target; Krups FDE3 Panini Maker, $19.99, Krups.
For the Gamer
If you ask me, there’s nobody easier to shop for than a gamer. Not to mention, there’s nobody easier to please. Luckily, this fall and winter have seen the releases of several top-tier games, so you’ve got plenty to choose from.
