4. If you want one of the highest-quality drones out there but you don't want to pay the high price, consider purchasing the DJI Mavic Pro Drone with 4K HD Camera today. According to CNET, this is one of the best drones while PC Magazine gives it a 4/5. It boasts an excellent transmission range and a 23-minute flight time, while its small size makes it portable and particularly well-suited for those who travel a lot. Usually, these are worth about $800, but right now you can purchase it refurbished for $600 through eBay. 

Alternatively, if you're looking for a good-quality drone but you're on a budget, consider purchasing the Yuneec Breeze Drone With a 4K Camera. At $300, it's not as amazing as the more expensive models, but CNET says this is the best budget drone and we think it might make for a good Christmas present. You can buy it for even cheaper at $150 if you purchase it through Wal-Mart today.

6. If you have a bunch of DVDs, books, and more lying around, consider temporarily swapping them with somebody. One blogger's friend did just; he made a list of items he didn't mind loaning to people he knew and posted it on social media. After asking his friends to share their own lists in return, he ended up swapping 20 DVDs and 15 books while reconnecting with old companions. If you're comfortable exchanging your items with strangers, there are also multiple websites that help you do this with others as well. For example, you can either swap a book with a stranger or mail your books to somebody and get points which you can use to then "buy" your own.
