We all know a well-traveled bon vivant with wares from umpteen countries or a trendsetter who always has the latest everything. This year, we have you covered with unique options that will please even the most difficult (to shop for) person on your list.
If your friend’s apartment is an impeccable mix of modern design and vintage finds, your best bet is to find a gift as obscure as it is appealing. This Buck Stacking game hits the sweet spot, pairing simple, addictive gameplay with a one-of-a-kind design. To play to his nostalgia, pitch it as hipster Jenga.
We guarantee she doesn't have this stunning eye collection, because you can't find it anywhere else. A Birchbox exclusive, this palette from fashion designer Cynthia Rowley's new beauty collection features five lustrous shades in deep purple and shimmering gold hues. Its pouch is printed with one of Rowley's signature floral prints, and is sure to satisfy any label addict.
If chosen well, grooming products make perfect last-minute gifts. But for the guy who has everything, not just any grooming products will do. This three-part skincare regimen is made with natural ingredients sourced from the Australian bush, and its simple, straightforward formulas are safe for any skin type.
Even if she somehow always manages to get bumped up to business class, you can still upgrade her beauty quotient. Meet Benefit’s Upgrade to Gorgeous gift set. With five travel-size products in a chic, vintage-inspired case, it will look right at home with the stylish luggage she doubtlessly totes (and you doubtlessly covet).
Most well-equipped gents own a sturdy duffel—that they've been using since 11th grade. This durable version from Topo provides a well-deserved update, and the bright orange and desert camo colors will stand out on any luggage carousel or gym locker room bench.
Our philosophy: You can never have enough shoes or watches. Named after a bar-and-boutique-lined street on New York's Lower East Side, rumbaTime’s lightweight Orchard timepiece adds a hip edge to anyone's wardrobe. Plus, every girl-about-town needs a little help getting from one event to another on time.
If you’re shopping for a man who’s partial to cologne, it can be hard to find a fragrance that stands out from the crowd. This olfactory ode to a literary giant certainly smells great, but its inspiration is what lends it a special appeal. Present it as a long-lasting gift to the worldly, the well-read, or a combination of both.
If your pal’s abode is stuffed with Koehler fixtures and Matisse paintings, opt for a one-of-a-kind gift from an under-the-radar brand. We’re currently obsessed with Soma’s next-generation water filter, which pairs a sleek, hourglass-shaped carafe with a 100% biodegradable and organic filter.
Everyone needs a place for the day’s loose change, but few guys own a receptacle that’s tailored to the task. This eye-catching money bank marks a step up from cans and mason jars, providing collectors with a dual-purpose coin stash and conversation piece.
For a woman who can't get enough baubles, nail polish is a great way gift her gems and diamonds—without having to take out a second mortgage. Unlike ordinary polishes, these creamy étoile shades are infused with real diamond dust to deliver a high-carat sparkle.
It’s not easy checking each person off your holiday gift list, which is why we’d like to direct your attention to Birchbox Gift Subscription. While we may be a little—okay a lot—biased, a monthly delivery of surprise and delight sounds pretty darn nifty to us.
