For this years treasure hunt, I have already hunted down 10 awesome but surprisingly affordable gifts ideas that any guy or real cool girl would love to unwrap on Christmas, or their birthday.
I have to tell you that these gift ideas were all over the web, but thanks to Jeff Bezos and his unquenchable thirst to sell one of everything on earth, you can find all of the goodies below on Amazon.com. It kind of blew my mind to find it all there, and at a cheaper price to boot. But come on people, we're talking about dealing with Mr. Crazy Pants Jeff Bezos here, he would sell you unicorns if he could.
