1. The person who has everything.

This person is a grade-A almost-millionaire (or at least it feels that way — seriously, who needs FIVE pairs of jeans?). So what do you get for the person who has everything? No idea. No one has any idea.

2. The mystery person.

This person doesn't reveal their age, size, exact height, or family background (we're basically working with an amateur Don Draper). Gift card?

3. The person who always looks mad.

They can't help it — it's just the way their face is, but giving that face a present it might not like is scary!

4. The Dad.

You know, the one who hates ties, golf clubs, fishing equipment, and grilling, and despite owning piles of new clothes mostly just wears his favorite sweatpants from the '70s.

Is caviar a thing that these kind of people like? Also what is caviar?

6. The person who always says, “I don’t need anything!”

But you just know shit's gonna get real if you show up empty-handed.

7. The person who always requests a gift receipt.

8. The person who is constantly changing their look — so nothing is guaranteed to please them.

After their year-long obsession with tiaras, you're certain you're gonna nail it with a particularly sparkly number... but then you see that they've suddenly dyed their hair black and are mostly wearing bandanas. Help.

9. The person who has one niche interest that they devote their entire life to and obviously already own every possible thing that relates to it.

"Like, I'm not gonna buy you another cat, dude."

10. The person who's constantly being given soap baskets = no one has any idea what they want in life.

11. The person who “loves everything!”

First of all, your enthusiasm is EXHAUSTING. Secondly, isn't there a name of a book you can give me, or something?

12. The person who's always saying, “All I want for Christmas is to spend time with you!"

"Please... so busy... please just tell me what to buy you."

13. The person who regifts everything.

When you see them re-Secret Santa your Secret Santa gift from last year, things really take a turn.

In the end, though, these people will cherish whatever weird, boring, or ill-fitting gift they're given, because it's the thought that counts.
