How to save money this Christmas.

With the Christmas season fast approaching, and the economy still not booming, many people are trying to save money this holiday season. Luckily, there are many decent gifts for men, women and children under $15. Whether it is music, a good book or a Pillow Pet, these gifts are going to be all well received this year.

Many top retailers realize that 2012 has been a tough year and are providing customers with plenty of opportunity to buy decent presents at reasonable prices – shop around and you may just be surprised at what you can get for just a few dollars.

While you can spend thousands on the top gifts, you will be surprised the variety of Christmas Gifts under $15! So go out and have some fun this Christmas season and enjoy the fact that you don't have huge credit card bills to pay off in January and February!

Amazon Gifts under $15

I must admit that trying to list all gifts under $15 on an article is very difficult - I've tried to give a broad range of products, but if you cannot find what you want on here, why not try looking through all items under $15 on Amazon - click here to go directly Amazon's 'Gifts under Fifteen' page - if you're lucky you'll find my favorite item - BACON shaped themed Adhesive Bandages

Music under $15

While many people download music (often illegally) many people still appreciate the feel of a real CD, a proper case and printed media - while I may seem old-fashioned, placing a CD in a player adds an authenticity I don't get when I play an mp3.

There are literally thousands of albums available for under $15; click here to see the newest and most popular CDs available. Currently you have a choice of teen pop idols like Taylor Swift and One Direction, some Christmas albums and even an album by the ever young Rod Stewart.

Mini Clip Mp3 Player

You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get an mp3 player. This Mini Clip Mp3 player supports up to 8gb of external memory to allow you to dowload and play thousands of mp3s. While not as elegant as an iPod or Sandisk player it is functional and has pretty decent sound.

For the price you simply cannot go wrong - this is a great stocking stuffer for teenagers - it also doubles as a card reader. (Note - this does not come with any memory - you will have to buy that separately.)

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II - PC
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II - PC

At under $6 this is a nice video game that is fun and also based in the Star Wars world.

 

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

While never a classic, The Force Unleashed II is a very good game that takes you into the Star Wars world. With great graphics and fun game play it will provide much entertainment.

The game is a single player action game and follows on from the original story - as the apprentice to Darth Vader you have to use force-based powers to combat your foes and ultimately find your detiny. With puzzle solving, customization and more combo attacks the game becomes more than a simple action game.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Kindle version)

So you bought your wife the Kindle for Christmas, so why not buy her one of the top selling books of 2010 to go with it. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a great thriller. It's a dark and often sinister murder mystery that is very well written and is full of intrigue, suspense and above all, great characters.

It should be noted that this book is very adult oriented, so the book should not be bought for children - if you think your child is old enough to read it, I suggest you read the book first so you can make an informed decision.

Alki'i 3M Thinsulate Thermal Insulation Fingerless Texting Gloves

With the cold weather on the way it's essential that you keep your fingers warm while out. These thermal gloves do that as they are lined by Genuine 3M Thinsulate lining - they are guaranteed to keep you warm.

However, in this age of the cell phone a lot of people find it hard to type when out in the cold weather - luckily these gloves are designed to keep your fingers free when needed, and then to cover them when not - you therefore do not have to remove the whole glove to text your friends or update Facebook.

Keurig Coffee

The Keurig Coffeemaker has revolutionized the way we make coffee allowing us to have the perfect cup of coffee every time we indulge. This coffee maker has also opened up the world to a whole selection of coffees that normally were only available at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts - whether you want a nice hot chocolate, a classic columbian coffee or even some delicious iced teas you will find that there is a Keurig flavor available to suit your needs.

While they can be pricey, if you wait for them to go on sale you can pick up a box of 24 Keurig coffees for less than $15 making them cheaper than if you bought them from the local 7-11!

Nerf N-Strike Maverick - Clear

Nerf guns are all the rage again and more and more teenagers are playing this fun and safe game with their friends. This quick firing blaster holds six darts and is a nice beginners Nerf Gun that is great as a cheap Christmas Gift this year.

Timex Unisex Sports Digital Watch

Many people will want to lose some of those pounds they have put on during the Christmas period, so they'll be out jogging or exersizing. Quite often the hardest part of exersizing is not knowing exactly how long you have been 'at it', therefore a sports watch is often a very useful gadget to have.

This watch is a feature-laden sports watch ideal for the sports enthuist, especially during the winter weather. With a timer, a dual time zone function, a day-date-month calender, and a quick drying strap, this watch is ideal for all conditions and 'extreme' sports.


Munchkin Mozart Magic Cube

This Munchkin Mozart Magic Cube features 8 Mozart masterpieces and has four different instruments for the budding young musician. At night, it also glows making it a great musical night light.

It is small enough to carry with you wherever you go so is great if you are going away for the holidays or vacations. The combination of sounds and light should help every infant or baby sleep soundly.


Pillow Pet Miss Lady Bug

Pillow Pets are all the rage and none are cuter than the Pillow Pet Miss Lady Bug. This cute cuddly toy also doubles as a really comfortable pillow - it converts easily and quickly and you'll have a hard time wrestling the Pillow Pet from your child when it comes time to wash it!!!

Children love their soft toys; often you have to take them away as they are not designed to be slept with, however Pillow Pets convert into pillows and are extremely safe - they are a perfect present for any young child.

The Watchmen

If you’re into comic books then this DVD is a must – it’s a recreation of one of the top cult comics of recent times. Set in the mid-80s, with increased tensions between the US and Soviet Union, Richard Nixon is enjoying a fifth term as president – the world’s superheroes have been forced to retire. The the Comedian is murdered, and suddenly the superhero community is on alert….

What makes this movie so compelling is the characters – if you’ve read the comic you know that the superheroes are simply regular humans with mixed characters – the movie brings them to vivid life! Great movie!

Bejeweled 2

Bejeweled has become one of the best selling casual video games of all time. With its fun graphics, great sound and addictive quality, you’ll soon find yourself attempting to beat your high score one more time in this great sequel to the original game. This gem-swapping game is still as addictive as ever!

Bejeweled 2 features:

  • Three game modes – classic, Action, puzzle and endless.
  • Great backdrops
  • Voice over on noteworthy moves.

The Beatles 1

This 27 track album of all the Beatles Number 1 hit is an excellent slice into the bands portfolio, showing the growth and diversity of the band as they dominated the 60s, and still dominate much of modern music – their influence on modern pop is patently obvious as you listing to hits like Strawberry Fields, Yesterday and Let it Be! If you only buy one album from the Beatles, make it this one.
