Re: Cheap Non-Handmade Gifts That Don't Look Cheap
Books! There are always good "sale" books at BN and other big bookstores.
Photo books are a good one, and shutterfly is constantly running deals.
Costume jewelry for women - hitting up a good sale at Kohls, JCPenney or the like usually yields good stuff!
Kitchen gadgets can be good too - you can find those on sale for a lot cheaper at places like HomeGoods, and you can find some really neat gifts there.
Picture frames - Kohls has these on sale often, or if you live near an Ikea, they're cheap as dirt and really nice.
Bath toys for kids (or bath paint or the like) - it's often cheaper than normal toys and fun!
