Not all gadgets will cost your entire paycheck.

Browsing through holiday gift guides can be an eye-opening blow to your self-confidence. Tech gift guides are especially upsetting. One minute you’re wrapped up in Christmas spirit at the thought of giving a loved one something special, the next you’re sobbing at your bank account. Seriously, who are these people and how the heck can they buy everyone $1,000+ gifts?!

You shouldn’t declare bankruptcy just to check off everyone on your list. Though a TV or new stand mixer would be nice, there are plenty of really cool gadgets that are below your budget.
