One of our favorite things to do this time of year (actually, all year!) is to curate the perfect gift for every person on your shopping list. Each holiday season there are a few common recipients that we always get asked to help with, from the dreaded (yes we went there) yankee swap to your long lost relative, so we decided to put our collective thoughts together as gift guides. We made sure to include out of the box ideas to ensure you’re labeled as the most thoughtful elf of the holiday season.
