Holiday Gift Guide 2018 

We are going to start this gift guide out with a shout-out to all the holiday over-achievers. You know exactly who you are. The people who are already wrapping gifts instead of frantically shopping during the last few weeks of December. The ones who collect wish-lists in November and spend Black Friday shopping for others instead of themselves (whoops, guilty as charged). Unfortunately, we do not identify with all of you.  

As much as we consider shopping a sport and a hobby, we fall victim every year to paying rush shipping fees and battling insane mall crowds. So, to our fellow shopping stragglers, this one’s for you. We stand with you in solidarity as you rack your brain for gift ideas and procrastinate until December 20th, only to be forced to buy whatever is left out there.

Now don’t interpret our slow approach to gift buying to mean that we dislike giving gifts. The exact opposite is true, and so much so, that it takes us forever to dream up the perfect and most creative present for each person. This year, we resolved to take a less stressful approach and began our research early. We’ve canvassed the internet and read every gift guide in order to curate our own guide, one that suits our (very high) standards. And in an attempt to be some sort of holiday hero for our partners in procrastination, we are sharing it with you.

So sit back, pull out the credit card, and get ready to rack up some points, because this is the gift guide you’ve been waiting for.
