The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide, with something for everyone on your list
Some people are just hard to buy for. You know exactly who I’m talking about. Either the people who don’t like “stuff” or who buy whatever they need and have nothing left to put on their Christmas lists. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Here are some great ideas for those hard-to-buy-for people in your life, just in time to finish shopping before the holiday rush.
Just as I did with my last gift guide, I’ll keep everything coded with dollar signs so you know how much money you’ll be spending if you buy each item.
$0-$25 = $
$26-$50 = $$
$51-$75 = $$$
$76-$100 = $$$$
$101+ = $$$$$
You guys, I want everything on this list. I had to stop myself from blowing all my Christmas shopping budget on stuff for me because these are so fun. Take a look!
