Thank you to Bed Bath and Beyond for partnering with me on today’s perfect gift ideas post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Welp, folks: there are officially only 13 days until Christmas. Is anyone panicking yet?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve knocked out all of the easy folks on your list. The cousins who are happy with a new set of towels every year. The gift for your bestie. The little stocking stuffers your mom asked for. One and done.
However, you know those tricky people on your list? Your dad who has everything, the fashionista in your life who’s super picky, the little brother that won’t just tell you what you want? Yeah. I’m sure you might be brainstorming a few perfect gift ideas for those folks. I’ve teamed up with Bed Bath and Beyond today to share a few perfect gift ideas for the hardest people to shop for on your list!
Perfect Gift Ideas For the Host Who Has Everything
Sometimes, you have the entertainer in your life who has it all: the glassware, the barware, all the cooking supplies, etc. You want to give them something else that will help take their parties to the next level, but you’re just not sure what the appropriate gift is.
One thing they might not have? A Smoking Gun. Smoking your meats, cheeses, and cocktails is an easy way to give your hors d’oeuvres a unique flavor, and to step your hosting game up. Your host may be addicted to this new tool, and invite you over for shindigs more often!
Perfect Gift Ideas For the Caffeine Addict
We all know one. She might have a shirt that says “but first, coffee.” They may or may not need two cups of java a day to function. I just picked up a Nespresso Essenza Mini this year, and it’s been a total game changer. While I love coffee, espresso gives me the energy jolt that I need — and is also incredibly delicious! You can also add in a frother to take their espressos to the next level.
Perfect Gift Ideas For the Social Media Star
That little cousin who has a loyal YouTube following. That aunt that started a food blog and it really kicked off. They’re social media savvy, and you’re always asking them for tips and tricks on how to grow your following!
If they love social media, chances are, they’ll love all things photography. There’s no need to get the social media star in your life an expensive DSLR — kick it old school and get them a Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera. It’s a major hit at parties, and it’s an excellent way for these photography experts to document their adventures!
Perfect Gift Ideas For Your Boss
Have you ever had a kick-butt boss and wanted to show your appreciation? Prove yourself to be the employee of the year with a small, inexpensive gift — as long as your office allows it!
This Kate Spade Mug is less than $20 but packs a serious punch. It would look flawless on your boss’ desk and will make her look chic, stylish yet professional in the middle of any work meeting. It can be stressful to manage a group of employees, but this is a nice little way to say thanks!
Perfect Gift Ideas For the Guy on the Go
We all know him: he’s always off on some adventure. Whether it’s to go on a hike right outside of the city, or jetting off to a new country, he’s not content with staying in one place!
Someone gave me a Fitbit last year, and as cliché as it sounds, I absolutely loved it. It was awesome to see how active I was throughout the day, how much sleep I was getting, and gave me reminders to move throughout the day. The new model, the Fitbit Alta, will also send call and text notifications straight to your watch when your smartphone is near and has a brighter display.
Still stumped on the perfect gift idea? Bed Bath and Beyond has a pretty incredible gift guide online at the moment to help you find ideas for everyone on your list!
