Tech Gifts on a Budget

The end of October means the beginning of the holiday shopping season.  And studies indicate that more than a third of the population prefers to receive electronic gifts. That’s a higher percentage than other high ticket items like jewelry.  With new versions of iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, and innovative gadgets like the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch it is easy to see what the most requested tech gifts will be for the 2013 holiday season.

But what about gift buyers who are on a budget? They want to get the most for their money while still delighting the receivers of their gifts.
