We all know that the holidays can be a stressful time of year. On top of juggling parties and trying to snack responsibly in the face of all those tantalizing treats, there’s an often-unspoken seasonal antagonist: gifting anxiety. The sinking fear that your gift recipient will already have what you’ve picked for them. Or worse, they won’t like it. Or, worst of all, they won’t want your offering because they’ve seen it everywhere and They’re. Just. Over. It. The good news is, there are plenty of wow-inducing gifts still out there. In fact, they’re in here. Yep, in this this very gift guide you’ll see 21 “Where’d you find this?!” gifts. Go ahead and consider us your secret weapon for battling gifting anxiety.
