While you still want to buy your friends and loved ones nice gifts, you may not exactly be in a position to break the bank. Good news — there are plenty of wonderful gadgets out there for you to choose from this year. And they don't seem cheap at all!
Sometimes your phone just needs a little extra power. Mophie's 4000mAh remote charging station will give you just that, for pretty much any gadget you have. And it's slim enough to throw in your purse or your pocket. $89.95
The Kindle is an awesome gadget. You get tons of content on a slim, durable little e-reader for under of $150. What's not to like? Amazon practically gives 'em away.
Make your cans a little more sophisticated—dress them up in tweed. So many headphones are overpriced. These are good looking, have pretty good quality audio, and they cost you less than a hundo.
iPods are always a huge hit at Christmas, and Apple's newly updated Nanos are just so cute. They have 16GB and come in seven different colors and they won't have you breaking the bank on your kid/niece/nephew/boyfriend/neighbor. $169
LaCie makes great, well-designed storage solutions. And shoot, we all could use a little more storage. It's more of a useful gift than a heart-warming one, but it's a great little thing to stick in a stocking. This USB 2.0 key has up to 32GB, so you can store anything you might need on the go. Plus, it looks like sleek little key. From $15.99
I love this watch. It's simple and classic. Even if you don't wear a ticker to actually tell time, it's a pretty snappy accessory. $95
