"I'm only buying gifts for my immediate family this year," you promise yourself on November 1st. "I can't wait to still have money left over after the holidays," you think with a smile. Suddenly, it's mid-December, and your roommates, co-workers, old friends from college, and neighbor you've spoken to maybe three times all want to swap presents this year.

Not so, my friends. Bustle and Spring, a new shopping app that lets you follow your favorite brands for awesome sales and exclusives, have teamed up to bring you 35 awesome gifts under $100. I'm not talking about weird knockoff Cartier bracelets that'll turn your S.O.'s mom's wrist green — these presents look like you dropped a ton of cash.
