When it comes to holiday shopping, we have two big goals: 1) Make sure we get something unique and special for everyone on our list and 2) stay on a budget! With that in mind, The Frisky and BuzzMedia partnered with Virgin Mobile to hunt down rad gifts that cost under $35, which, by the way, is how much Virgin’s unlimited data plan costs for their three new Android devices. (And there’s no contract! Oh, happy day!) In the video above, our own Amelia shares two of her favorite gifts to give this holiday season. Find our more about where to buy them, after the jump!
Gift #1: Geek Girls Unite by Leslie Simon
“What do Amy Poehler, Bjork, Felicia Day, Martha Stewart, Miranda July, and Zooey Deschanel have in common? They’re just a few of the amazing women proving that ‘geek’ is no longer a four-letter word.” So introduces the incredibly hilarious book Geek Girls Unite, a guide to the different types of women who are making geekdom not only an acceptable thing to embrace, but an awesome one to proudly celebrate. Author Leslie Simon explores the different iterations of geek girls — from music geeks to book nerds and everything in between — through their heros and interests, and offers required reading, playlists, and movies to unlock the inner geek girl hiding inside of you. Geek girls unite, indeed! [$10.19, Amazon]
Gift #2: Split Decision Pie Pan
Newsflash: the holidays are just around the corner! That means it’s … pie baking season! But what to do if you can’t decide what kind of pie to make? Apple or pumpkin? Berry or rhubarb? Mince meat or blood? (Kidding about that last one, as this is not medieval times.) Why choose? This Split Decision pie pan from The Spoon Sisters is ideal for people who are indecisive, especially about matters as important as dessert. [$17.95, The Spoon Sisters]
