Today I started sorting through over 1100 starred items in Google Reader. I’ll be un-starring, tumbling and just leaving some of these items starred in an effort to dump and organize all the crap I’ve read or saved to read later.
One nugget of awesomeness that I found was an article at Get Rich Slowly that suggests giving your favorite (not always expensive) things as gifts to others for Christmas. I like this idea so I am going to list some of my favorite things that cost under $30 here. If you know me then you might get one of these for Christmas. You’ve been warned:
- Domain Names
Cost: $10. Does anybody I know really want a vanity domain name?
Cost: $26.97 or less. You can give up to three months of service for less than $30 bucks. Sweet! Netflix, for the uninformed, is a great way to rent DVDs without late fees.
- Cafe Press
Cost: $6.95 or less per month. A premium store at Cafe Press would make a great gift for the designer/entrepreneur you love. I’ve been using Cafe Press to supliment my income for a few years and it’s a great outlet for creativity.
Cost: $30 or less. Music, movies, television, audio books and games are all available through iTunes. You can give a certificate or gift a special mix of your own songs!
Cost: $30 or less. If someone on your list reads. Consider giving them a book that has meant a lot to you. Write something in it. That’s special.
- Cost: $15 or more. I carry a man purse. It’s awesome and I love it. The one I’ve been carrying was a gift from my friends at Bramlett Multimedia a couple of years ago. While my particular bag was not $30, AmeriBag has a handful of bags between the $15-$30 range.
I’ll ad to this list as I discover new things I love throughout the week. What do you love that costs under $30?
