Holiday Shopping Guide: Fantastic Gifts for Under $100

December 10th, 2013

The holidays are just around the corner.  We are already in the second week of December. If you haven’t started shopping yet, you still have time! Oftentimes, the best prices can be found online. Online shopping avoids some holiday shopping stressors, such as pushing through crowds, circling around seeking parking spots, and wasting money dining out at overpriced restaurants.

I have come up with a list of a few of my favorite inexpensive gift ideas. All of these gifts can be purchased for under $100. If ordering online, be sure to place your order before the deadline, so you receive your gifts before the holidays! Happy shopping!

Apple iPod shuffle -small, convenient & cheap. Why spend more? This perfect sized Ipod (great for exercise) can be purchased for only $50!

Brookstone Towel Warmer This towel warmer is fabulous, either for yourself or as a gift. Just turn it on before you get in the shower and you will walk out to a nice toasty towel just like at the spa. Plus, its’ attractive style spruces up any bathroom.

Vinturi Wine Aerator – A great gift for any wine enthusiast. Smooth fantastic tasting wine at an affordable price. I never pour a glass without running it through my wine aerator. As a bonus, it adds a nice touch to any home kitchen or bar area.

Biddeford Heated Blanket – Fantastic electric blanket just in time for the cold winter months. Love this blanket – it heats up so fast! Perfect for snuggling on the couch watching your favorite movies!

MAX Percussion Massager – The most powerful handheld massager! Visit your local Brookstone store to test it out for yourself! You may end up picking one up for yourself as well! Great gift idea for those hard to please people on your list.

Teavana Blue Butterfly Cast Iron Teapot– Beautiful cast iron teapot is perfect for any tea drinker on your shopping list. The calm blue color is  perfect for relaxing tea time break.

Cuisinart CFO-3SS Electric Fondue Maker – Great unique holiday gift idea that everyone will have fun will all year round. I bought this for Black Friday one year and never though I’d use it. However, I fell in love with it after the first use. I can make my own fondue creations at home without spending $200 at The Melting Pot!

Swarovski 2013 Annual Edition Crystal Star Ornament -This Swarvoski crystal ornament is absolutely gorgeous, even more so in person. I received it as a a holiday gift this year. It glistens on your tree or anywhere else you decide to display it throughout the year. What a perfect holiday gift that will last forever!
