80 Best Unique Christmas Gifts Of 2021 To Give Your Friends And Family For The Holidays

Christmas is supposed to be the season dedicated to everything merry and bright. But, let’s face it. Sometimes, it can also be one of the most stressful times of the year. Between shopping for ugly sweater parties, cooking for family potlucks, and planning all the cocktail parties in between, 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.

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.

Of course, it’s not just about gifting for the sake of saying you did so. You want to do your best to find a unique, thoughtful present they’ll truly love and be able to use for whatever passion or interest they have. 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!).

From a mini citrus tree for your gardening-loving mom to a Fenty lip balm for the sister who’s always stealing your makeup, an Olympian-authored cookbook for your partner who’s training for their Masterchef audition, and even a PSL-scented candle for that coworker you don’t actually know very well, this list has something for any and every person on your list, no matter your budget.

Read on for the 80 best holiday gifts to give all of the people on your shopping list in 2021.
