Dec. 1, 2010 — -- It's that time again to agonize over getting the right holiday gift for someone on your list without breaking the budget.
As editor-at-large for O Magazine, she got a little help from her friends. Fellow contributors Dr. Mehmet Oz, Nate Berkus, Dr. Phil McGraw, and Suze Orman and others sent in their favorites, too.
Orman likes to give gifts that are consumed, because she doesn't want to add to anyone's clutter. She believes a true gift doesn't burden the recipient.
Berkus looks for well-designed gifts. The design expert's gifts deliver style and friendship.
