10 Great Gift Ideas for $20 or Less!

So, we did it! We basted, chopped, boiled, baked, and ate our way into a food coma, and now Thanksgiving 2014 is a memory. If you failed to arise on Black Friday in time to get the super-colossal deals, and you are racking your brain to find that perfect gift today (Cyber Monday), here are some wonderful ideas.

Even though the economy is on the upswing, many families are starting to join the movement to decrease spending during the Holidays. It makes perfect sense to me.
