In Episode #28, we share some of our favorite places to go online for amazing gifts, whether you're shopping for the holidays, birthdays, Valentine's Day, or an anniversary. All of the sites we rave about have a very nice selection under $25. Unlike sites like Amazon and Walmart, these online retailers make you feel like you're walking into a virtual boutique shop, where you can sort by price, gender, and other categories. Each has its own personality—ranging from sweet and salty to outright weird—so check them all out to see which one suits your occasion and your gift recipient. Sites we recommend include AlwaysFits.com, BuyOlympia.com, OldTimeCandy.com, UncommonGoods.com, Vat19.com, GiftAdvisor.com, Token.vip, and the New York Times gift guide. Other sites we mention include Wish, Hollar, and the MoMA Design Store.
