I love shopping on online- especially from Amazon.com. Since I live away from my home state of California, I do most of my holiday shopping online for relatives back home and have it shipped directly to the recipient.
Free shipping, optional gift wrapping and easy comparison shopping take the fuss out of shopping for the holidays. I picked out 25 gifts for $25 (or less) for men, women, parents, couples/nesters, runners and fantastic stocking stuffers!

1. 8GB Hello Kitty Nerd Kitty Flash Drive : Practical and cute!
2. Birchbox Subscription (Just $10 a month and one of my personal faves!)
3. All Eyes 3-Piece Hard Shell iPhone case by Kate Spade : Classic for a classic lady.
4. Moleskine Classic Notebook : A journal is an understated gift with big potential. Pair this with fancy pens.
