The 100 Best Gifts For YOUR Budget

In a dream world, we’d spare no expense to spoil our nearest and dearest with gifts. But, this is real life, and our bank-account balances aren't exactly in the six digits. And, the holiday season, with its "shop 'til you drop" mantra, isn't favorable for those of us with limited funds. Even so, there are still plenty of gift options for your mom, college roommate, baby nephew, and S.O. that are within the realm of possibility — and that aren't a lame pair of socks or some dinky candle you found at the dollar store.
To keep you in the black this December, we rounded up 100 under-$100 presents so you can shop to your heart’s (and wallet’s) content. Ahead, we divvied 'em up into 10 price categories for easy perusal. Only have $10 to spend? Great. Or, $20? Cool. What about $80? No problem. This list offers good tidings, indeed.
