It’s likely that you have a long list to shop for, whether it’s because you have a massive family or are just a social butterfly. But outside of that, most of us also have roommates, bosses, significant others, in-laws, neighbors, and more to cross off our holiday shopping list too.
Christmas is supposed to be the season of all things joyful and bright. But, let’s be honest. It can also be one of the most stressful times of the year at times. There’s always so much to do in so little time—especially when it comes to shopping for holiday gifts that are unique and thoughtful—between shopping for ugly sweater parties, cooking for family potlucks, and planning all the cocktail parties in between.

Before you put a ton of pressure on yourself, this list has got your back. Below is our list of the best Christmas and holiday gifts of 2021 (though they fit for every occasion from birthdays and anniversaries to “treat yourself” presents!).
