Yay! The last day of the Bargain Babe Gift Guide is here. I’m looking forward to getting back to my normal money-savings tips. A bit ironic that I’m closing the gift guide with gifts when you are NOT on a budget. Mostly this is for all of us to ohh and ahh over, then head to Target to budget shop.
A pint-sized computer known as a netbook is a great gift for any one who craves being connected. Prices range from $200-$600 for the top of the line. Not sure how to pick out the right netbook for you? Check out my netbook buying guide.
I’m an iPhone devotee and I make no bones about it. Some say the Android Google phone is gaining steam, but do you really want a phone that croaks “droid!” every time you turn it on? The best feature is that the iPhone is so intuitive there’s no need to read the manual. Plus, new apps make it possible to read books on it so no need to invest in a Kindle. $99-$499. Buy it!
J.Crew’s cashmwere sweaters are renown for their quality and comfort. Expect to pay upwards of $100 or more unless you get one on sale. Also check Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s for sales. Buy it!
A set of fancy olive oil and fig-infused balsamic vinegar is a super versatile gift that works for relatives, distant friends or family, your boss, or even a neighbor. The two tall Italian glass bottles come tucked into a sturdy cardboard box with packaging that oozes luxury. Two 200ml bottles are $40 from Global Gardens in Santa Barbara. Buy it!
