I myself am indelibly on the hunt for great gifts and gets that can be bought online with all of the comfort and convenience that affords. Given the National Retail Federation finding that personal holiday spending this season will reach the second highest in the 13-year history of its consumer survey, it seems cyberspace will be one busy place this year.
In the spirit of easing and expediting your efforts, here are this year’s holiday gift picks starting as low as $20 in the tech and sport categories that can all be purchased lickety-split via a viable Internet connection.
