The Best…, 11/24/2017

The Best holiday gifts under $100, gifts for the modern man, and book we are reading.

Our many different cultures notwithstanding, there’s something about the holidays that makes the planet communal. Even nations that do not celebrate Christmas can’t help but be caught up in the collective spirit of their neighbors, as twinkling lights dot the landscape and carols fill the air. It’s an inspiring time of the year. -Marlo Thomas

“The Best…” is a new resource designed to provide you with THE BEST content out there. Each day we will pick a handful of cool, mind-opening things that we think are worth sharing with you. Our daily picks could be anything from the best books and podcasts, to the best movie trailers and wacky thoughts.

Have suggestions for what we should include? Let us know via social media, email us at info[at]themission.co, or leave a comment on this article. Enjoy!

The 10 Best Holiday Gifts Under $100

The holidays can be crazy stressful. Work is wrapping up at the end of the year. You have to plan travel and visits to all the people in your life without offending anyone. You have to go to holiday parties. You have to buy gifts for a bunch of situations and people, some of which you don’t know very well. And all while you probably don’t have an excess of spending money to afford it all.

It’s quite the conundrum, but hopefully we can help. We don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to show how much we care. Sometimes, an inexpensive gift can go a long way to connecting with someone else — as long as it’s perfectly personalized for them.
