Gift Guides: Helpful or Hindering?

How many gift guides have you looked at this season? One? Five? Twenty? Twenty THOUSAND? Gift guides started as these helpful little lists, info graphics, and collages to help you generate gift ideas or find that perfect gift you’ve been hunting down for a good deal. Then, the trend caught on, and now every business, brand, and blogger thinks that they’re the authority on exactly what you need to get every single person in your life this season.

Unfortunately, as a blogger a gift guide seems to be a necessary evil. So, I’m giving you one with no particular rhyme, reason, or theme. Just 5 cool gift ideas I’ve happened upon this season categorized in the typical, cliche gift guide way.

P.S. Every gift is under $100!
