Craigslist can be a great resource throughout the year, but do you write it off when it comes to hunting for gifts for others? The topic came up between two mothers I was standing in line behind at my local toy store. One mother mentioned she had just seem something similar on Craigslist and it was even new in the box. The other woman gave her an icy glare, "I would never think of such a thing!"

I rolled my eyes, made my purchase and went about my merry way, but it got me thinking. Is there anything wrong with the idea? I've purchased holiday finds at auctions, so why not Craigslist? What are your thoughts on the idea?
