    The holidays are a time of relaxation, but the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas can leave anybody frazzled with gift giving woes. Need a few gift ideas for your loved ones? Want to figure out what to put on your list? We've got a variety of nifty gift ideas to put a smile on any Grinch's face.

    1. Amazon Kindle Fire

    Extraneous Apple products can take a toll on your wallet, but luckily, for the tablet fan, there is a shiny color touch screen at the end of the tunnel. Amazon's Kindle Fire has been flying off the digitial shelves, and for good reason—beyond Amazon's impressive library of content (books, movies, television, and the Amazon MP3 store), the tablet also hosts a variety of apps like Facebook and full web browsing (with Flash capabilities). With an Amazon Prime membership, users get unlimited access to a ton of on demand content. And the price point with fill you with holiday cheer. -$199.99 at

    2. Surc

    For the music fan with an unbelievable stereo system in their living room, and a ton of gadgets (iPod dock, TV, DVR, surround sound, turntable, CD Player, etc.), the overwhelming amount of remotes necessary to command such a fleet of devices demands a gameplan. Pencil in Surc, a handy app/case combo for your iPhone that turns it into a one-stop remote for everything in the room. The plastic remote case also doubles as protection and a port that lets you charge and sync with micro USB. -$89.95 with shipping included at

    3. Jawbone Jambox

    Another iPod dock might just be a waste of time, and limiting to boot. Nowadays everyone has music on their phones, and not just the iPhones. Your next set of mobile speaks should be a bit more versatile, so we recommend a Jambox, with 2.6-watt weighted audio amplifiers, 10 hours of battery life, and connectivity to any blue tooth device. As an added bonus, a friendly female voice will read off your notifications, and use voice commands to turn it on and off, and make phone calls. -$149.99 at

    4. She & Him, A Very She & Him Christmas

    Maybe you just need some holiday tunes to impress the in-laws. Considering how popular Zooey Deschanel is getting (with a new Fox comedy series and other adorkable claims to fame), show up with her Christmas album with M. Ward. Although the songs are familiar, the charm of their band She & Him is sure to add some fresh sparkle to those Christmas lights from the 80s. -$9.99 on iTunes

    5. Audio Technica Headphones

    Perhaps your giftee is a huge audiophile, and desires some new sonic bliss... but doesn't want to sell out and buy a pair of Beats. Look no further than the Audio Technica ATH-50, the best bang-for-your-buck prosumer headphones on the market. The closed-back design allows for minimal sound leakage, and the phones fold up for easily portability in a bag, on the go. These over-the-ear phones sound like a pair that costs twice the price, with plenty of enticing features to take you to your happy place. -$149.99 at

    6. Jersey Shore Christmas Ornaments

    HSN is all sold out of these early November trinkets, but you can still grab 'em if you're clever. If your loved ones don't smile at the sight of Snooki hanging from the tree, they might need a little more mulled wine. -$5.99 each at Walgreens
