The past eight months have been a ride, to say the least. But hey, the holidays are finally here, and we’re looking forward to a little well-deserved cheer, preferably in the form of a pile of gifts. But before we can savor the pleasure of opening our own gifts, it’s time to get a head start on shopping for others. With so many other stressors and worries on your plate, finding and affording the right gift shouldn’t be one of them. Thanks to Klarna , we’ve found an easy way to search for gifts that you can pay for over time. So even if your 2020 budget is looking a little dour, you can still manage to snatch up the best present possible.
We’ve compiled 100 (yes, you read that correctly) gifts that’ll suit just about everyone on your shopping list. No need to align with their chakras or dig deep into their sun and moon signs, this list is split up by personality. After scouring the internet, we’ve managed to find the ideal gift for each and every persona, from the art snob to the homebody (which, by now, is just about all of us). Bust out that Christmas gift list and get to shopping with these thoughtful picks.
THE BOUGIE FRIEND
Know that friend who would never dare board a flight in a pair of sweats (unless they had a designer label)? The one that’s bougie and unapologetic about it? We promise we’ve found a way to please the hardest ones on your list. They usually have an eye for quality…or, at least, an eye for what will bring them the most likes on Instagram. But that doesn’t mean you have to blow your bank account. You can still get them a gift that will showcase their champagne taste—even on your beer-on-tap budget.
THE ARTSY ONE
We wouldn’t dream of offending them with the “hipster” label, so we’ll go with a friendlier superlative—artsy. For the art-inclined giftees on your list, get in touch with their affinity for color and creativity. Finding a worthy present for this persona comes down to thinking outside the box. From funky home décor pieces to wearable art, play up their love for things that defy the mainstream. And when in doubt, a portrait of their beloved furbaby is always a good fallback.
THE ADVENTURE ENTHUSIAST
2020 was the year most of us learned to get back in touch with mother-nature. The need for some fresh air outside of the four walls of our home sparked a renewed interest in day hikes, camping trips, roller-skating (thank you, social media), and after dinner walks. While it’s cool to stay home right now, it’s also cool to stay mentally stimulated and physically active. Whether the folks on your holiday shopping list are new to adventurous activities or seasoned thru-hikers, consider these fun and functional outdoorsy gifts.
THE LOUNGING CONNOISSEUR
Learning to love being at home was this year’s greatest test. Well, for all except the already well-adjusted homebody. Their apartment may be stocked with every essential they and their cat need to keep from leaving their bed, but these days even hermits could use a gift that makes staying at home a little more bearable. Think a thick pair of socks, plush bedding, hobbies they can craft from their couch, aesthetically pleasing candles, or a dutch oven that’ll let them cook all day (hey, we’re all contenders for the kitchen cook off).
THE SOCIAL BUTTERFLY
When it comes to your most extroverted and social friends and family, it’s important to remember that their platonic love language is often quality time spent with others. The best gifts to get them are ones that allow them to connect with their social circle, be it hosting a game night, being the life of the party, or running around town to support their loved ones’ hobbies. Gift them something they can easily share with their friends or an object that reflects their outgoing personality. This persona is bound to love just about anything you choose—for them, it’s the thought that counts—so don’t stress it!
THE BACHELOR(ETTE) OR BOO
Cue the romantic music, please. Whether they’re an exciting new flame giving you all the good stories for the group chat, or a good friend who’s just enjoying the single life, give this person something that’ll humor their inner fantasies. We’re thinking date night (in) essentials and gifts that’ll allow them to get all hot and bothered (at home). A gift for them can be as simple as a not so subtle candle or as thoughtful as a new set of lingerie. Just remind them that with the state of the outside world, they should be more concerned with hitting the sheets, not the town.
