The Best $100ish Gifts (That Used to Be a Lot More Expensive)


Sometimes, all you know when going into a gift-giving scenario is the price range. “I want to spend around 100ish dollars,” you tell yourself (whether that’s because they spent 100ish dollars on you last year, or because they’re just a 100ish-dollars type of person). We decided to cull together the best gifts we could find in the 100ish dollar range — with the added bonus of each item having been a lot more expensive at one point or another. Meaning they’re on sale. And meaning you’ll get credit for a $600 knife set or a $320 suitcase, while having spent just (yes) 100ish dollars.
