If You're Still Procrastinating, Consider Getting One Of These 29 Crowd-Pleasing Gifts

Can't go wrong with a big ol' bag of gummy bears.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A subscription to Book of the Month because they're going to need SOMETHING to do while hiding inside from the cold weather.

2. An incense holder and backflow incense cones that are equally relaxing to watch and smell.

3. A classic board game hidden inside a book so they can store it neatly on their bookshelf until it's time to humiliate the competition in a ruthless game of Candy Land.

4. Jerky Snob might seem like an ambitious commitment for even the most enthused jerky eaters, but you'd be surprised how fast those bags go once your recipient gets snacking.

5. An ice cream maker ready to help them make ice cream at home. Folks: ice cream. At home.

7. A Shrute Farms sweatshirt, puzzle, or Kevin Malone keychain for the person who still can't stop quoting The Office.

8. A book full of prompts about why you love your mom/dad/grandparent/teacher/etc. Just fill it in before giving it to them and watch for that almost guaranteed smile.

9. A geode kit because nothing breaks up the monotony of everyday life quite like literally breaking up some rocks.
