    44 Things To Gift People You Don't Know Super Well

    Fretting over what to gift this year? Well, fret no more.

    1. An automatic pan stirrer so they don't have to sit there constantly stirring their homemade gravy and tiring out their arm.

    2. A grooming set because you can truly never go wrong with self-care products that give skin some TLC. Or! You can give them a subscription for a gift that keeps on giving.

    3. An electric wine opener since no one should fuss over trying to get that pesky cork out of their wine and have the tragedy of the cork snapping in half (been there, done that.)

    4. A Diptyque Baies scented candle so luxurious, every time they burn it they'll feel like a royal. These candles add a gorgeous scent to any space even when unlit, and the minimalist glass jar can be reused for makeup brushes or writing utensils!
