It's that special time of year again where you have to start making a list and checking it twice to find the perfect gift for the holidays. After years of living as a broke college student and then years living like a broke college grad, I have learned that the best gifts are the ones that are thoughtful, and not necessarily the ones that cost the most money. And they are even better when it is something that person can use over and over again.

My personal thoughts are that the best gifts are the items that are practical. I like the idea of giving practical gifts because those are the gifts that are used throughout the year. And who knows; one gift could start a chain reaction. For example, if you have a friend who has always dreamed of being a writer, maybe you should begin by getting her a Moleskine notebook so she can start there. A year later who knows where she could go with it. And she would have your gift to thank for it.
I put together quite the awesome gift guide on eBay that has 12 gifts for your friends that range from, the one often travels to the tool enthusiast who owns every tool imaginable. Some of the gifts I describe are suitable for anyone under the sun The best part about the list is that they are all gifts you know they will use year round as opposed to using it once and tossing it aside. Check out my guide on eBay to find the perfect gifts for your buddies. I hope you enjoy!
