It’s common knowledge that people procrastinate the most when they don’t know where to start. This all begins to feel particularly pertinent come holiday season, when you have a list of friends and family to cop presents for, with no particular clue about what their hearts desire this year. And we all know what happens when you put off holiday gift shopping until the last minute, the oh-so-thoughtful gift card, the re-gift of a just slightly used cashmere scarf, or a forsaken fruitcake. Don’t be that person; we’re here to help. Enter our marvelous holiday gift guide.
You may be wondering what makes it so particularly special? We’ve selected gifts that are bound to be loved. You could call them universal crowd-pleasers. In theory, you could close your eyes and pick a gift on this list, with guaranteed recipient satisfaction. It’s that idiot-proof. We’ve got the wine that has a cult following, a breathtaking advent calendar with 24 mini gifts inside (who doesn’t love mini gifts?!), and the one present anyone who adores sleep (aka everyone) will cherish, plus so much more. You know that smug feeling when everyone around you is tardy to the holiday-shopping party, and you’ve already wrapped your gifts? Priceless. So go ahead, chase that pompous pleasure by scrolling through our holiday gift guide.
