2. A cast-iron skillet for whipping up all kinds of scrumptious recipes for years and years and years.
3. A pair of comfy Soffee shorts to sleep, workout, lounge, or basically do most things while wearing!
4. A Hydro Flask that'll put all their other water bottles to shame and force them to send the OGs to a "farm upstate."
7. A budget-friendly pair of ear buds they'll definitely lose before they stop working. But they're cheap, so that's fine.
11. A pair of Adidas pool slides. If you gave them some back in the '90s, they'd still wear them today!
13. A set of Pyrex containers they can bring to your pot lucks a decade from now because you have to drop them *just so* to break them. (I somehow have never accomplished that yet.)
14. A legendary Leatherman multitool that's going to be on their person 24/7 because something always needs fixing.
17. A pair of Wrangler jeans my big and tall, horse-riding dad SWEARS by. They're sure to become their go-tos, too.
18. And while we're on the subject of my dad's fashion choices, he thinks Carhartt coats are the bee's knees and one would well serve your fave person by keeping them warm and fashionable for years.
20. A George Foreman grill they can give to a loved one once they've upgraded to a new, sexier model that the brand is always releasing.
22. An Anastasia Beverly Hills brown pencil with a cult following that'll keep their arches looking gorgeous for long stretches of time.
24. An RFID-blocking Saddleback wallet for lasting protection in a classic style that even the pickiest person will adore.
