You know the holiday drill. You get a bunch of gifts that are the all-stars, and then a few supporting players that are “nice to haves”: white elephants and stocking stuffers and cards from grandma that comprise a Christmas haul that’ll largely be lost to some sad junk drawer in the TV console.
This year, two of my nice-to-haves included a $50 Walmart gift card from mom and a $50 Walgreens gift card from, randomly, a family friend. Because I’m a Strategist editor, I took the challenge of spending each card very seriously, careful to make the most of each half-Benjamin. In case you find yourself in a similar (non-)predicament, these are the things I contemplated before ultimately deciding what to buy.
The Apple TV I’m using is second-generation (a.k.a. obsolete), and I’ve heard nice things about this Roku.
RVN says this is a cheaper dupe for the SK-II essence, and I could almost afford two of them at this price.
I kind of want to buy this fancy hand wash and fill it up with apple-scented Mrs. Meyers when it’s done, shhh.
I usually buy these at $5 a pop, but ten for $30 is a phenomenal deal.
