Yonkers, U.S.A. — Holiday shoppers can find the perfect gift for almost everyone on their list for $25 or less. The December 2012 issue of ShopSmart, from Consumer Reports, highlights 25 great sites that offer everything from silly stocking stuffers to socially responsible gift items.
“There’s an endless selection of unique and inexpensive holiday gifts online,” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “ShopSmart has identified 25 sites that can help shoppers avoid the aggravation of in-store shopping while nabbing great deals.”
The report also features nine great sites for presents under $50, five that offer do-good gifts, and six sites and apps that can help last-minute shoppers get gifts in an instant. Each of these sites meets ShopSmart’s requirements for privacy, contact info disclosure, and service, and while some don’t offer free shipping, the gifts themselves are a great value.
Here are five fun sites from ShopSmart’s December issue:
