Who’s left on your holiday shopping list? There are always a few tricky people to buy for, so last week (in our email) we asked who or what were stumping you the most. Your answers: in-laws, co-workers, teachers, nephews/nieces and inexpensive gifts. So, we scouted high and low for dozens of ideas, most of which are under $50…
MOTHERS-IN-LAW (AND GRANDMAS):
She brought your partner into this world. What gift could live up? Maybe an art history book about women reading through the ages; juicy winter citrus; or treats to make her feel beautiful.
FATHERS-IN-LAW (AND GRANDPAS):
New York butcher Pat LaFrieda’s blend — the same one Shake Shack uses — for his next family dinner; a gift card from Just Give, so he can pick from more than two million different charities; and other cool things for the gentleman in your life.
A legendary career book from George Lois, the original Mad Man of Madison Avenue; chunky, fudgy bars; and other pick-me-ups for the officemate that always makes you smile.
NIECES AND NEPHEWS:
The softest organic cotton PJs (for a steal!); a notepad for playing restaurant; and four more gifts for adventures and mischief.
TEACHERS, SITTERS, MAIL CARRIERS and OTHER HELPERS:
A fresh batch of chocolate-chip cookies (you could stack them in one of these); a candle to cozy up with; or floral stationery for the year ahead, but…
At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with good old-fashioned CASH MONEY, which is honestly what everyone really wants and appreciates. Tendr is a fantastic site where you can send money electronically along with a sweet illustrated card.
Thoughts? Are these helpful? Any other stumpers on your list?
