10 Hot Holiday Gifts and How to Get Them for Less
Every year there are a few gift requests that make their way onto just about everyone's holiday shopping list. The scramble to buy one of these hot Christmas gifts before the shelves empty leaves little time to figure out how to get a must-have item for less. But by shopping around, seeking out cheaper alternatives, and applying some smart holiday shopping tips, anyone can save money on the most sought-after gifts this year.
Another Star Wars toy likely to be on many lists this year is the BB-8 droid. One version, from Sphero, is controlled with a smartphone app and costs $150. Another, made by Hasbro and available at Target, comes with a remote control and costs $80. Aside from the controller, the Hasbro version is larger, slower, and runs on AA batteries instead of an internal rechargeable battery. But it's still a good buy, according to a Mashable review. If you're on a budget, this may be the droid you're looking for.
