No matter how many people you have on your holiday shopping list, you probably have a budget that you want to stick to. And, from our research here at Gifts.com, that sweet spot seems to be less than $100 per gift. So, I’m going to show you some inexpensive, perfect gift ideas for everyone on your list this year! You  might have caught me talking about these on TV recently…check out our GiftGuru YouTube channel  for clips if you haven’t. We’ll be uploading them soon!

I love personalized gifts because they show a lot of love and thought for the person you’re getting it for. With the KODAK Picture Kiosk and the KODAK Kiosk Connect App and My KODAK Moments Facebook app, creating personalized gifts has never been easier or more affordable.   You can transform all those photos sitting on your smartphone, computer, and Facebook into photo books, calendars, and other unique gifts that will be cherished for years to come.   Best of all, they’re available to create at Wi-Fi enabled KODAK Picture Kiosks at more than 7,000 CVS/pharmacy stores nationwide and 58 Bartell Drug stores; and starting at $6.99 you won’t break the bank on a home run gift!

Affordable technology can be hard to find, especially for the tech savvy person who has everything. But check out the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover  made for iPad, which many technology experts are calling the “best iPad keyboard ever made”. It truly is the iPad’s perfect partner, providing sleek protection and increased functionality without adding bulky weight. This keyboard, cover and stand combo connects seamlessly to your iPad through Bluetooth, its built in stand holds your iPad in just the right angle and it acts as a screen cover by magnetically attaching to your iPad. It’s available in three colors, including white, black and red. It’s only $99 and you can even get a personalized engraving for FREE when you purchase online at www.Logitech.com!

For TV lovers who are looking to save money on their huge pay TV bill, the Boxee TV for $99 is a great fit.  This simple box plugs into your TV to bring Apps like Netflix and YouTube onto your big screen, but what separates it from something like Roku is that it also has a cloud DVR built in – that means you can record as much as you want from your favorite TV channels and then watch your recordings on your computer, your laptop…pretty much anywhere as well as on your TV. all for just $99.  Now the DVR isn’t available everywhere so check boxee.tv for availability and as an added bonus for the holidays they’re throwing in 3 months of Netflix for free, so it’s a great value!”

Going the fashionable gift route can be a huge drain on our wallets. But Sephora makes it so easy to buy amazing beauty gifts for a great price. For the ladies on your list, check out their Color Daze Blockbuster Make-Up Pallette . It comes with 148 gorgeous formulas, finished and textures for make-up beginners and pros alike. Valued at $370, this Hollywood ready palette offers an infinite number of looks for just $49.50! And, let’s not forget the boys! Sephora also has the amazing Favorite Fragrance Sampler for Him. Get this, the sample pack comes with a collection of 12 of their most stylish fragrances for men AND a voucher for one full-size bottle! So your guy can try out all the cologne then redeem the voucher for his favorite one from any Sephora store! At $50, it’s a total steal!

They say “En Vino Veritas” which in Latin means “in wine [there is the] truth”, and we can’t deny that there’s a lot of cork popping over the holidays! To enjoy opening that bottle as much as drinking that glass of wine, check out Whimsical Bottle Openers from RedEnvelope. Each of the three styles (bull, seal, and piggy) have a cleverly hidden corkscrew that only appears when you need it! Not only are they fabulous conversation starters – aren’t they adorable? – they’re also finely-crafted, making for a sturdy, stylish gift that they will want to display and show off year-round! They start at $39.95 and go up to $49.95 for the bull. These are the perfect gift for wine enthusiasts, hosts, and quirky collectors!
