The holidays are for spending time with your family, disconnecting from work and sleeping it all off. However, one of the biggest problems can be finding a gift for someone. Holiday shopping can turn into a nightmare with crying kids, bright lights and big crowds. That said, we have put together a big compilation of all types of gifts for anyone and everyone!

Top 5 Gifts For Him

1. Fav Team Sports Jersey – $99 + @

Whether it be the Seahawks or the Packers, a jersey is the perfect gift for your boy. He can wear it on gameday or anyday to show his love for the team. Not only will he love it, he will love you for getting it for him!

Fallout 4 is a post-apocalyptic role-playing game that has recently been released. It was revealed that the player will be the Sole Survivor of Vault 111, who emerges 210 years to the day and time after the Great War.  If he doesn’t already have it, Fallout 4 is definitely a present to consider.

3. Clothes – N/A

Clothes will always be one of the best gifts … if you do it right. We suggest to shop at top stores like H&M, American Eagle, Hollister and PacSun. From winter beanies to a new collared short sleeve shirt or even a vintage puffy vest, any boy will love a new addition to his wardrobe.

4. DIY Theme Kit – N/A

If you don’t quite know of a specific thing for someone, try making something! There are hundreds of ideas for DIY kits on Pinterest. You can make it themed like Spa Day, Movie Night or Christmas Baking. Then, once you pick a theme, fill a jar or small basket with items that go along with the theme. For a Movie Night Kit, fill it with two fav movies and some snacks!

You can never go wrong with money. The person receiving your gift has the choice to buy what they really want. If you are running behind on holiday gifts or shopping for a hard person, choose money!
