You have a single Benjamin in your wallet—or bank account—and you need to buy a gift. “Gifts under $100” seems like a sad place to look, but you can find a surprising amount of needles in this haystack that we call the internet. Look, we all want to buy people cashmere and noise-cancelling AirPods, but spending gobs of cash on a gift (especially for someone you don’t really know) isn’t always realistic. Even the people you love the most can’t push you to go into debt just to get them an expensive item. Cheap gifts can veer into terribly cheesy and terribly useless gag gift territory, but resist the urge to Supermarket Sweep your way through the mall—or worse, Starbucks—an hour before lift off, a.k.a the gift exchange.
