Use Ebay to Buy GiftsEbay is a great place to purchase gifts inexpensively. For quite some time, I have shopped Ebay for "new with tag" items that are priced $0.25 to a $5 with free shipping for gifts. Many times, I have paid $1.75 (with free shipping) for new scarves for family members and friends. I have yet to be disappointed with the quality! I make sure to only purchase items from sellers with a reputable reputation that accept returns. It can be a bit time consuming to search for these items but once you find that great deal, it's all worth it in the end!
