Splurge For Your Husband: Gone are the days of massive sound systems dominating living rooms. For the man who loves to feel his music, get him a Sonos wireless speaker for deep, rich, room-filling sound. He can stream his music from his phone to the device or, if he's got an Alexa, with voice commands. The best part: Since it's connected over wifi and not Bluetooth, your listening won't be interrupted by phone calls.

Splurge For a Tween: The tricky tween set can be pretty puzzling to shop for. But trust us on this one thing: They love taking pictures of themselves and their friends. The joy of instant film that comes in this Instax mini camera will be sure to put a smile on even the surliest of preteens.

Save For a Tween: Thinking Putty is for tweens what Rubik's Cubes was for their parents. They can fidget with it for hours on end and believe it or not, it will help them focus or even work out some emotions that are sure to be roiling inside. Bonus in this version: It glows in the dark!

Buy It

Splurge For a Teenager: This updated bean bag chair is for the older kids who are beginning to express their own sense of style in their room décor. Made from recycled leather, this lounge chair will definitely become a favorite spot for everything from doing homework to scrolling their phone for hours. They may even haul it to the living room to join the rest of the family from time to time.

Buy It
Starting at $30.76

Save For a Teenager: As much as they love their cell phones, teens really love retro objects, too. If yours is fascinated with the appeal of old fashioned typewriters, get them a necklace with their initial made from the keys of the "ancient" writing machines.

Splurge For Mom: You know she's been eyeing that stand mixer — you may be her favorite child if you get her the KitchenAid stand mixer in the color of the year, Bird of Paradise. And maybe, just maybe, she'll bake you your favorite cookies from when you were a kid.

Buy It

Save For Mom: The Barefoot Contessa is a favorite chef for people of all ages, but we think mom will especially love this cookbook. In it Garten details cooking food for people she loves, particularly her husband of nearly fifty years, Jeffrey. No doubt your mom will be able to relate to cooking from the heart.

Buy It
Starting at $125

Splurge For Dad: Fathers can be tough nuts to crack when it comes to buying gifts. For the man who has everything, get him a cedar shoe shine box that comes kitted out with everything he needs to keep his leather looking tip-top. Plus, it's made in the USA.

Buy It

Save For Dad: Some dads show their love and care best through actions rather than words. Let your father pour his attention and care into a tiny bonzai of his own. No doubt he'll proudly show off his efforts in growing a tiny tree.

Buy It

Splurge For Your Coworker: If your favorite coworker is constantly having to reheat their coffee or tea, gift them this Ember mug. It promises to keep hot drinks at exactly the temperature of the drinker's choosing for hours via the magic of an app controlled by their phone. They can take it from meeting to meeting and their drink will never lose its warmth.

Save For Your Coworker: Scented candles are always a good call for coworkers. They're not too personal but such a lovely gift to receive. For an affordable price point, you'll get a gift that looks and smells much richer. This particular candle pairs pine, orange, cinnamon and cedarwood.

Buy It

Splurge For Couples: For your very favorite couple, choose a graphic quilt. They can use it as a throw on their bed or sofa, or treat it as a work of art and hang it on their wall. Unlike most art, however, this hand-stitched piece is machine washable.

Buy It

Save For Couples: Choose a fancy picture frame for the couple on your list who has loads of gorgeous pictures that deserve to be put on display. If you have a shot of them you love, have it printed up and slide it in the frame before you wrap it up.
