Perfect For: Your newest squad member.
Why It’s Perfect: She’s not the Selena Gomez to your Taylor Swift (yet), but you’re ready to take your friendship to the next level and exchange holiday gifts for the first time and show off said presents on Instagram. This is big, you guys.

Perfect For: Your BFF’s kids, who think you’re, like, ~really cool~.
Why It’s Perfect: You won’t feel guilty for handing, you know, the Generation Who Will Change the World a mindless toy. This LittleBits kit allows kids to essentially invent their own electronic devices (and this festive gingerbread house pack is the perfect starter).

MINI PROSECCO BOTTLE
Perfect For: Your grown-up family members.
Why It’s Perfect: We’ve officially come to terms with the fact candy canes don’t really cut it as stocking stuffers once you turn 21. These will fit perfectly in your standard Christmas stockings, but we recommend tucking them inside real tight – if Santa finds out, he’s not going to want the cookies you left out.
Buy It! La Marca Prosecco (store locator here), $6 each
Perfect For: The fanciest guy in your life, whom you’re obligated to splurge on.
Why It’s Perfect: We encounter no shortage of gift sets this time of the year, but these made-to-order co-branded Basil Hayden’s + Quoddy shoes and whiskey-ready rocks glasses (wrapped in leather and secured in an equally fancy gift box) inspired us to go all out this year for the special dudes in our life.

THE COFFEE BLEND THAT GIVES BACK
Perfect For: Your neighbor who spends her weekend mornings volunteering.
Why It’s Perfect: You know she would appreciate a gift that supports a charitable cause (this World Vision blend is the product of farmers who are overcoming poverty with their earnings). You also know that early mornings doing good require a nice boost of caffeine.
Buy It! World Vision, $75 or more donation
A CHILDREN'S BOOK MOM & DAD WILL WANT TO READ, TOO
Perfect For: Your PTA white elephant party.
Why It’s Perfect: This magical tale about one family’s cherished Christmas ornaments is the kind of book that will melt your heart, no matter the age. That means that even the people in the room who don’t have super-young kids will fall for the festive nostalgia (and the adorable hand-painted ornament included in this Oliver the Ornament gift set just sweetens the deal).
