How to choose the best Christmas gifts for your friends

When it comes to buying gifts for your friends, you want to find something they'll really love. Here are some tips to make it easier:

  • Think about their personality. Describe your friend in one word, then think about what kind of gift they'd enjoy. Outgoing? Maybe they'd like an experience they can share with others. Sentimental? Try a gift that represents a memory you shared.
  • Consider their age. A teenager is unlikely to enjoy the same gifts as a grandparent, obviously. But age is more than just a number. Your 25 year-old friend with two kids probably won't appreciate receiving the same gift as your same-aged friend who's currently solo backpacking through Southeast Asia.
  • Evaluate your relationship. What is your relationship with the person you're buying the gift for? Is it a coworker you don't know very well? If so, stay away from personal gifts. Choose something generic, like wine or a candle. Gifts for close friends can be much more personal.

What can I get the friend who has everything?

If your friend already has it all, shopping for a gift can be daunting. Of course, you want to get something they'll like and appreciate… but you don't have to get a luxury gift. Try something like a candle or some wine. You could also consider buying your friend an experience gift, if you know what kinds of activities they enjoy.

What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for friends?

Homemade baking mixes in mason jars are always popular holiday gifts. More experienced DIY-ers could take on a Pinterest-inspired project like making a sign for your friend's home. Something you and your friend can share makes a great DIY gift: Try picking up fruit and wine for a homemade sangria kit or giving your friend a recipe for your favorite dish with the non-perishable ingredients included.
