Why is it that all year long we see things that people we know would love but when it comes time to finally buy gifts we always get stumped? The challenge can become even harder because you can’t buy everyone on your holiday list a pricey gift, but you still want the present to be thoughtful. Here are some more moderately priced ideas for that perfect gift.
