There’s nothing more stressful than loving people during the holidays. What kind of present shows them how much you really care? And where do you even start?

Well, let me tell you that the average consumer expects to spend over $600 on gifts this holiday season, with gift cards and clothes being the most popular choices when it comes to material things, according to a 2018 study conducted by Deloitte.

However, the same study also shows that consumers this year are spending more money than ever before on experiences like trips together or game nights, rather than physical gifts. Experiences now represent 40 percent of planned holiday expenses this year.

Luckily, we at CentSai have scoured the internet to bring you the best of both worlds: savings for both “things” and “things to do.”

We’re giving you the ultimate holiday gift guide — the best place to start looking for gifts for those special people in your life. We’ve even got some of the best deals you’re likely to see this year!
