The holidays are always such a great time to relax and spend with family. For some, shopping is stressful, which is part of the reason I like to get my shopping done early. To help you in your hunt for fun gifts, here are a 5 of my favorite items for under $50 that would make great gifts for any gadget, wine, or food lover on your list.
I’ve always been a fan of Riedel glassware. Since my first real set of wine glasses I purchased years ago, Riedel has always been my go-to glass. Recently, I’ve discovered the Riedel O to Go White Wine Tumbler. It’s one of Riedel’s original stemless tumblers in its own convenient to-go packaging. I brought mine to California with me for my 12-week work trip because it's so amazing. It's seen a lot of wine in a short period of time and looks like it's still brand new. Pair this with a bottle of wine for the oenophile on your list.
I like the color red, and this red is for a good cause. By buying (PRODUCT) RED merchandise, you are supporting the Global Fund to fights AIDS in Africa. Order online and you'll get free engraving and free shipping. This would make a great stocking stuffer for your favorite music lover.
From Apple's website:
The Global Fund.
The numbers don’t lie: Every day more than 900 babies are born with HIV. By 2015 that number can be nearly zero. (RED) works with companies like Apple to fight for an AIDS-free generation by 2015 by creating (PRODUCT) RED merchandise. A percentage of gross profits from the sale of those products goes to the Global Fund to help fund AIDS programs in Africa. Since its introduction, (PRODUCT) RED has generated more than $190 million — more than $50 million from Apple alone — for the Global Fund. Now you can make an impact, too, by purchasing a (PRODUCT) RED iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod touch, iPad Smart Cover, iPad Smart Case, or iPhone Bumper.

Huh. This one is red too. The Kuhn Rikon 7-Inch Nonstick Colori Bread Knifeis a fabulous bread knife and a steal at only $21. It slices bread like a bread knife was meant to slice bread. It's a better knife for bread than some more expensive once I own. No muss, no fuss. This knife would make a great stocking stuffer for a foodie or bread lover in your life.
Mine is green, but this stylus comes in several colors. Some of the other colors are only $17, which is a bargain if green isn't your first choice. The Bamboo Solo Stylus for iPadis the best stylus I've used. Works well on my iPad and iPhone. What a great stocking stuffer for the gadget lover in your life.
