Gift Guide '13

Holiday shopping isn't always easy. Or pretty. The stores are swelling with stressed-out shoppers and testy temporary salespeople (more than half a million, to be exact). And they're all distracting you from the task at hand—finding unique and personal gifts in your price range. So each year, we offer our hassle-free, avoid-the-crowds gift guide. Smart options, all available online.
