Gift Guide Number 9: The Hard-to-Shop-For Crowd (You Know Who You Are)

Gift Guide #9: The Hard-to-Shop-For Crowd (You Know Who You Are)

Who’s left in your holiday shopping list? There are always some men and women that are hard to buy for, so this week (on Instagram) we inquired who had been stumping you the maximum. Your responses: tweens and teens, co-workers, in-laws and educators. Here are a Lot of ideas, the Majority of which are below $30…


What’s moving through these teen and tween brains can be a total mystery, but exactly what they wish to unwrap does not need to be. The softest faux fur blanket to cozy up together; a Rocket Book, allowing them scan and upload handwritten notes to cloud services to restrict newspaper waste (Greta Thunberg will be thrilled ); smartwool gloves to make texting hassle-free and present cards to”Urban” (as the kids say) or a local restaurant, equally no-brainer winners.


What to find the people that you find every day… perhaps more than your loved ones? How about empowerment socks or a gold pen that looks and plays much cuter than the cost indicates a luxury balm to fight your dry office-building atmosphere; a hearty succulent for this coworker who claims to have a black thumb; or wealthy, chocolate-y brownies for, well, anyone.


For the wonderful teachers in your own life, a real thank you note from you (or your kid ) can mean a lot better. Gift cards will also be brilliant, “even if it’s $5 to a local coffee shop,” states Katie Larissa. Presents to bypass? “TEACHERS HAVE ALLLLLLL THE MUGS,” Katie states, also as “millions of apple and pencil and other teacher-themed ornaments,” adds Heidi.


For these hard-to-buy-for relatives, think about a food present, such as Blue Hill jams (“these are sooo good,” states Jenny) or cheese chocolate bars. A cookbook is always helpful, and we adore Simple Cake, Midwest Made along with also the recently updated Joy of Cooking. Also, donating to a cause they believe in or creating a personalized household memory match (to play with the grandkids! ) ) Equally feel heartfelt.

Thoughts? ) Are those useful? Any additional stumpers in your listing?
