Not sure what what to buy? Here are a few gifts that can be considered unisex and are still under $50:
Vinyl is becoming a very popular music choice. It is the only part of the music industry whose sales increased in the past year (by 3%). Of course, it is essential that you know the music interest of the person you’re buying for. You can find vinyl for sale at Von’s and Amused on Purdue’s campus or at JL Records at Wabash Landing and the Levee.
POSTERS! Honestly, who doesn’t appreciate a huge poster representing something they love and admire? The best part is that posters are almost ALWAYS under $50. Why you’re at it, you might as well use the money you’re saving to get yourself a new poster as well.
