Each year the holidays roll around, presenting a particular set of challenges that, though familiar, never seem to get any easier. While menu-planning for more than ten people and figuring out where an entire assortment of extended relatives will sleep are certainly toward the top of that list, the clear winner for sheer difficulty always seems to be finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. What makes it so difficult? For one, you can use repeat strategies for all the other tricky tasks that arise. Did that pumpkin pie go down well last year, or did that turkey come out of the oven cooked just right? Repeat the recipe! Did you have to invest in an airbed for the cousins last year? You can reuse it! A gift? Well, you simply can’t rely on an old staple year after year. And it should, ideally, reflect the receiver’s personality. But don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re shopping for your best friend (you know, the one that “has it all”), the aunt you only see once a year, your mother-in-law (never easy), or your college-aged niece, we are here to lend a helping hand. Our editors have scoured the globe to unearth the best, most unexpected, where did you find that? types of presents. From the amusing to the emotional, from the heartwarming to the hysterical, you’ll find the best suggestions that range from luxurious beauty products to fun (and easy) crafts to irresistible accessories. There’s a pick here that will delight her, whoever she is.
