Gift Ideas for People You Have to Buy Gifts for
Your colleagues, neighbors, in-laws — we all have someone on our list we don't know well enough to get a thoughtful gift for, or maybe they're just downright impossible to please. Gift one of these ideas to make their holidays brighter and yours a lot less stressful.
It's the season of giving, and for some people, gift-giving is easy and fun. I am not one of those people, especially when I'm buying gifts for people I don't know very well or for someone that already has everything they need. It's way too much pressure — who is with me?
One thing I've learned over the years is to focus on one or two things I know about the person. Maybe they can't function without coffee, or they're competitive, or maybe they like spicy food. Below, I've compiled a list of gift ideas that are thoughtful even when you don't know the gift recipient very well.
Puns — you either love them or hate them. This colorful, fun calendar will give the pun lover in your life a daily dose of puns that'll keep them laughing (but probably have others rolling their eyes). The calendar also makes the perfect White Elephant gift.
If they like that extra flavor on their food, gift them this limited-release TRUFF gourmet sauce. Ingredients include jalapeños, chili peppers, seasonal white truffle, white truffle oil, coriander, and organic agave nectar from Jalisco, Mexico. Oprah added this to her Favorite Things 2019 list, so you know it's gotta be good.
