How to choose gifts for under $200
If you've budgeted for your Christmas present shopping, or set aside some money for someone's birthday, then half the battle is won. Once you have an idea of how much you want to spend on someone, you've already set some sort of framework for the kind of present you want to buy them.
Gifts for family?
If you are buying a gift for a family member, try and think about things they may need which they won't buy for themselves. You could think about getting a personalised product or something sentimental which immortalises a family memory, or a voucher for a family activity or an experience present. You can also think of the hobbies or occupation of the people you are buying presents for - perhaps they might like some kind of device or gadget they can use everyday.
Gifts for friends?
When buying gifts for friends or your significant other, think of presents you have exchanged in the past to get some ideas. Think about whether they have mentioned any upcoming trips or activities and you might be able to get a gift to help them out. Buying presents for friends also offers a great opportunity to group money with other friends and buy joint presents. This also gives you a chance to brainstorm and pool your ideas together.
We've broken down the best gifts in 2014 for under $200 into categories and by occasion. We've also got great deals and specials for the top online retailers that you can browse through and get the best price.
