There’s already enough to think about during the holidays, like who is hosting Christmas dinner? What stories are going to emerge from the office holiday party? Will it be ham, turkey, or tofurky this year? And just how “ugly” do they really mean when they say “ugly sweater party”?

With that in mind, we have removed the stress from what some feel is the biggest, scariest to-do this season: holiday gift shopping. We’ve searched high and low to compile the perfect round up of gift ideas for everyone on your list.
