FIERCE’s 2018 Christmas Gift Guide for The 22 People In Your Life
The holiday season can be the most wonderful time of the year thanks to the pretty trinkly lights, hot cocoa, cookies everywhere and the smell of Christmas trees all around. But it can also be a stressful time of year because sometimes, despite your best intentions, you just might not know what to get for your family and friends. You love them, sure, but some of them are impossible to shop for.
That’s where we come in. We’ve scoured the internet for the best and most inventive gifts that you can get for everyone in your life. From something for your abuelos to your new boyfriend to your BFF, this is the ultimate FIERCE Christmas Gift Guide for the 22 people in your life. Oh, and don’t worry, we’ve even included a bonus gift for all of the people who you might have forgotten about in years past… Because, yes, they deserve a little something too. Happy Holidays!
1. For your mamiWalmart.com
The Instant Pot ($79) might just be the perfect present for your mami. It’s a 6-in-1 machine that works as a programmable pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, plus it can sauté, steam and warm. That might really take the pressure off of her (no pun intended) by helping her to make food much quicker and easier. That way you can actually spend time with her more. It’s a win-win!
2. For your papiAmazon.com
This AncestryDNA Kit ($59) might just be perfect for your hard-to-shop-for papi. He’s always talking about where his family comes from and now he can really see it. The best part is that this kit from Amazon is $40 off the original price tag, so it’s kind of a deal too. Don’t be afraid to get YOURSELF one for a Christmas present, too.
3. For your crushnormanloveconfections.com
How do you tell someone that you kind of sort of like them? Well, nothing beats chocolate. Period. Specifically, I’m talking about Norman Love Confections dark chocolate espresso bar ($8). They have many different options, including ones with raspberries and cherries plus different varieties of chocolate, but you can’t go wrong with this one that includes espresso in dark chocolate.
4. For your hookup buddyAmazon.com
Sometimes, if you want to keep your relationship strictly platonic but still get a little something-something, you have to send a clear message with your gift. And with the Massage Oil Candle ($14), that message is clear. And that message is: Romance me, massage me and thanks but bye.
5. For your new love
The J.Crew X S’well X charity water bottle ($35) makes for a pretty sweet gift for someone that you haven’t been dating for all that long. You know that you SHOULD get them something but you can’t be sure what. However, this water bottle is great because everyone needs to be more hydrated so it shows that you care without going overboard.
6. For your boyfriendAmazon.com
Your boyfriend has probably been obsessing over the All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet ($80) for a while, amirite? It’s a great device to show him that you truly care and especially that you care about his love of books, television and everything else. Heck, maybe you can even watch your fave HBO Now shows together.
7. For your girlfriendzarahome.com
If you want to let your girlfriend know that you’d like more nights spent snuggling in front of Netflix, then there’s no better gift than the Loop Thread Blanket ($139) from Zara. It’s cozy, perfect and comes in two different colors so that you can pick what is best for her to adorn her home with.
8. For your fiancéAmazon.com
Welcome your fiancé into your life by welcoming them into your bed with this very cool Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Cloud Lofty Queen Size Pillow ($99). You’re probably already living together by this point but you can always get comfier in your life together. They will definitely enjoy the added ZZZ’s thanks to this awesome pillow.
9. For your husband/wifeellaparadis.com
Do you sometimes feel like some of the romance has gone out of your relationship? That’s okay and that’s totally normal but you CAN do something about it. This holiday season, get your husband or wife this limited-edition Adult Advent Calendar Gift Box ($99) from Ella Paradis. It technically says 1-24 in the traditional advent calendar sense but you can do these boxes any time. They each include a sexy surprise and a booklet explaining what to do to make your nights, ahem, a little naughtier.
10. For your sisterivyandwilde.com
Your sis might just fall in love with this Frida Kahlo tote bag ($20). Not only is it adorable but it is obviously the perfect thing to carry around all of her things. Sure, she probably already has 17,000 tote bags but this one is clearly the winner. Don’t worry, we’re sure she will let you borrow it. *wink wink*
11. For your brotherAmazon.com
Your brother is going to get a KICK out of this Millennial Loteria ($22) game. It’s just like the game we all know and love except with some really hysterical millennial signs. Now he can totally get everyone in on a game, whether that’s with your family or his friends.
12. For your tiauncommongoods.com
This one’s for your tia who LOVES hosting #TacoTuesday parties: The Taco Serving Kit and Storage Box ($85). It allows her to keep planning her parties while also making it easier than ever for you to come over and make tacos just like you want them. She will enjoy having all of the different elements for her next taco party.
13. For your tioAmazon.com
The TABLETOPICS Family ($25) card game is pretty perfect for your one tio who is not only a conversation starter but tries to get the entire family in on it. This is a great piece for any family member, really, but I think he will appreciate it most of all. The best part is that it’s the kind of present that is meant to be shared.
14. For your primauncommongoods.com
The Scratch Map Deluxe ($32-48) is the ideal gift for your prima who dreams of traveling the world. You can help to encourage her wanderlust with this scratch-off map of the world that helps her mark every country where she’s been and where she plans to go.
15. For your primoAmazon.com
Your primo might just fall in LOVE with this Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote ($40) that will help him watch all of his favorite television shows easier than ever. The even cooler Alexa Voice Remote will have him feeling pretty good about himself, too.
16. For your abuelauncommongoods.com
What will truly warm abuela’s heart is this Personalized Family Hobby Art ($85-175) print that can be customized for up to 12 family members. Sure, that might not actually fit everyone but do your best and she will enjoy it for a long time. In fact, I’m betting it will adorn her wall for years to come.
17. For your abueloAmazon.com
For the abuelo that has everything comes this Mini Movie Projector ($60), which promises to help him show his photos and movies with ease. Remember those nights when all he wants to do is have all you grandkids sit around him as he talks about the homecountry? Well, now it’s even easier for him!
18. For your BFFAmazon.com
My Cinema Lightbox Mini LED Marquee Lightbox ($23) is the PERFECT gift for your bestie. You can craft a message for her to start with, perhaps her favorite inspirational quote or a powerful saying that she loves? Afterward, she can use this to inspire her to do good work or just to jot down ideas.
19. For your girlfriendsAmazon.com
You can get all of your best lady friends something that will make them totally relax, which is this Bamboo Bathtub Caddy Tray with Extending Sides ($29). I’ve been using this tray for a while and it’s definitely my favorite bathtime product since it not only helps me to relax but also allows me to keep snacks and other goodies nearby when I need a break. Sadly, the cute plate of cherries is not included.
20. For your guy friendsAmazon.com
The Codenames Deep Undercover 2.0 ($20) is a great board game for adults and your guy friends will love it. Sure, they’re difficult to shop for but this game is a surefire winner. Next time you’re getting together with your crew, your guy friend will be able to break this out and have everyone roaring with laughter. Trust me on this one.
21. For your professoruncommongoods.com
These Jumbo Magnetic Fidget Spheres ($13) are an ideal gift for your professor who is totally awesome but needs a bit more decoration on his or her desk. The bonus perk of these is that your professor can fidget a bit while the classroom is listening or otherwise occupied, or even while they are lecturing. It’s a little something they can do and a little something you can give them as a token of your appreciation.
22. For your bossAmazon.com
This Boss Lady Travel Mug ($20) is absolutely the gift you should give to your favorite boss who is so great that you think you might want to work for her forever. Now she can get her coffee on the way to work and carry around with her all day long, which might also keep you from having to fetch it for her. It’s definitely a winner of a gift.
BONUS: 23. For just about anyone elseAmazon.com
If you still have people on the list, then why not go for an Indoor Zen Garden Relaxation Kit ($27)? It’s a great gift for pretty much anyone since we could ALL use something to de-stress. That is especially welcome during the holidays but this gift is perfect any time of year to help your loved ones relax.
