You know the type. Whether they're just incredibly picky or just incredibly not, a handful of people on your shopping list are just impossible to shop for. But, before you simply buckle and hand over another Visa gift card again this year, we recommend digging deep. Gifts that are universally appreciated do exist, after all, and we're here to help. Coming in at a range of price points, these are the utilitarian presents that your friends can't not use. At the office, in the kitchen, at home, or out at night, our luxe little picks are the gifts they might not have bought for themselves but will surely be glad to enjoy.
From intoxicating candles that make a space look and smell like a boutique to a cooking staple that'll make anything taste better, these items will make any recipient do the Happy Present Dance. And, if they still don't? Fingers crossed that they practice re-gifting, and hope that it ends up in your hands next holiday season...
