Every year it’s the same. You go shopping, you cross with the name after the name of your list, only to be transferred completely wrapped present this to one person you never expected to exchange gifts with. You empty hands, palms sweat, and offer nothing in return.

It would put a damper on any happy holiday. So this year, to take a different route.

We collected nine gifts that are sure to be a hit (regardless of destination) without breaking the bank. Stock up on some of them and do not sweat it this holiday season. And if you need to keep some of them in the end? Bonus gifts to you, from you!
