41 Gifts For The Person On Your List Who Says They "Don't Want Anything"

Little luxuries they'd never buy themselves and practical finds they'll use long after they take down the Christmas tree.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

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 Book of the Month subscription that'll send them a hardcover book of their choice every month. It takes the scary guesswork out of offering book recs and gets more great titles on their shelves for less $$$.

2. A bottle of Truff Hot Sauce they can add to essentially any meal to make it feel like a gourmet affair — even if they're just sitting in front of the TV.

3. An artisan subscription box for the giftee who appreciates unique, sustainable, and globally inspired goodies. Whether they're into self-care, home decor, or journaling, they're sure to find something they love as they get to *pick* the theme of their box every month!

4. A Framebridge gift card so they can finally frame that print they bought two years ago. And we're not talking any old frame, no — they'll get to pick *exactly* what they want and then it'll be handcrafted before being shipped back to them.

5. A handmade match striker for the candle-obsessed friend who has collected enough scents to open their own shop. The ceramic pot is way more aesthetically pleasing than a lighter and doubles as decor in its own right.

6. A Jason Momoa coloring book, which will give Aquaman/Khal Drogo fans ample time to admire the curvature of his every muscle and bounce of each beachy wave.

7. A pair of prism spectacles for the loved one who simply cannot bring themselves to sit upright but still has a reading goal to meet. Now, they can finish their latest read in their most comfiest form.

8. A house-shaped tissue box cover because the best gifts solve mundane problems, like transforming their unsightly tissue box into enviable decor.

9. A 252-piece custom photo puzzle featuring your favorite pic of the two of you or a portrait of their dog — you know, whichever you think they'd appreciate more.

10. A flowy recycled cashmere wrap for the homebody on your list who loves nothing more than getting into comfy clothes and queuing up a new episode of The Great British Bake Off.

11. An air-purifying money tree that arrives pre-potted in a stylish planter, is easy to care for (just water once a week!), and is said to bring prosperity and good luck to its owners — the best gift of all!

12. A Sips by subscription box filled with premium teas, personalized to match their taste preferences. Every month, they'll get sent everything they need to steep and sip their way to serenity.

13. A year-long subscription to Stitcher Premium so the friend who is always giving you podcast suggestions (solicited or not) can get their fix. Membership will get them exclusive access to bonus episodes, archived audio, and — most excitingly — ad-free listening.

Three available podcasts including My Favorite Murder

14. A set of chunky dome rings — that look like they cost some significant buck but don't! — sure to please the trendsetter in your life.

15. An elegantly packaged cocktail kit with four bestselling apéritif flavors and a recipe book that'll endlessly upgrade their at-home drink game. Sip, sip, hurray!

16. A jerky sampler box so the curious taste tester can mark a few new types of meat off their "I've tried that" list. Ostrich meat? Check.

17. A fluffy sherpa purse that will complete their signature all-sherpa-everything look. Or, if faux fur is more their thing, that's also an option!

18. A zero-waste starter kit for the burgeoning environmentalist who doesn't quite know where to start. This kit includes everything they need to kick off their journey to less waste with portable plastic alternatives they can incorporate into their daily routine!

19. A wine topper serving set to take their already iconic charcuterie boards to the next level. Now that gatherings are back on the table, so is this three-piece bad boy.

20. A native-designed recycled sherpa blanket so freakin' soft, your friend will want to keep it under lock and key so it isn't stolen by roommates, family members, or four-legged friends.

21. A variety pack of Reese's candies sure to please the peanut butter lover among you. The 30-pack comes with the classics (see: Reese's Pieces, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Reese's Big Cups) and a few we didn't even know existed (hiya 👋🏻 Reese's Sticks, Reese's White Peanut Butter Cups, and Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cups). 🥜

22. A modern canvas that hides a pretty cool secret: Every chronological color strip is from a scene in their favorite movie. Below, we have Good Will Hunting from start to finish!

23. A canister of chai that tastes JUST as good as their favorite coffee shop cup. If they already have a stove top espresso pot, they can even make it ~dirty.~

24. A blueberry breakfast gift basket for the friend who seriously loves going out to brunch. Send this along with some champagne and OJ for bonus points! Either way, they'll have everything they need to cook up a delicious breakfast.

25. A TheraBox subscription that comes filled with therapeutic self-care products and "happiness activities" because who couldn't use a little extra dose of dopamine nowadays?

26. A wall-mounted grow-light-frame combo that looks like it crawled out of the pages of their favorite interior design mag. If you've already gifted them a succulent or two, this is the natural next step.

27. A Criterion Channel subscription so they can catch up on Hollywood classics that are hard to find elsewhere. Film buffs will also appreciate that they can filter by director, exclusive Criterion editions, and more.

28. A secret stash bottle for the person who *insists* on not carrying a bag but asks if you can hold onto their credit card, ID, and keys when you go out.

29. A MeUndies multi-pack so they can get high-quality, comfortable underwear (or bras!) with make-them-smile prints they'll look forward to slipping into every day.

30. A trendy baseball cap that'll get ample wear as they run errands, go on a jog, or just laze around the house.

31. A deck of minimalist playing cards so they can ace their next game night, or make their next round of solitaire extra *aesthetic*.

32. A faux-croc shoulder bag (with an added cross-body chain) because no matter your giftee's age, they deserve to dress/accessorize like a Gen Z influencer if they so please!

33. A refreshing facial mist — formulated from organic grapes — they can use to moisturize day and night. One reviewer calls it a "welcome pick me up" and notes how it keeps their skin glowing 24/7 which sounds like a pretty promising gift if you ask us!

34. A pair of scrunchie-style Apple Watch bands for those who never go a day without 1. completing their rings and 2. accessorizing like the best of 'em.

35. A shower beer and wine holder because sometimes, a bath bomb just isn't enough. Real ones know that true R&R involves a chilled glass of sickly sweet Barefoot attached securely to your shower wall — not perched precariously on the lip of your tub, so why not give your friend that precious gift?

36. A roll-on sleep oil blend if one thing your giftee could certainly use is some serious Zzzs. The soothing formula encourages relaxation with a mix of valerian root, chamomile, and lavender.
