    35 Gifts Even Super-Picky People Will Love

    Some people may seem impossible to shop for, but trust me — you've totally got this.

    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.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Quirky, detailed plush animal slippers available in basically every critter you can imagine, not just basic bunnies — I'm talking everything from giraffes to blue tang fish to platypuses — so you're sure to satisfy their obscure tastes.

    2. Stylish glasses etched with a map of their hometown, because if they drink liquids and are from a place, then they're sure to love these.

    3. And a set of collapsible metal straws with comfy silicone tips that they can keep in their bag to help them stay eco-friendly when they drink said liquids on the go.

    4. A little journal to fill with reasons why you love them, even though they're picky as hell.

    5. A custom keyring of their pet's face, so they never really have to leave home without their furry friend. The question is not whether or not they will shriek with joy when they receive this, but rather how loud said shriek will be.

    6. Or some custom stickers of their pet (or heck, even their face or your face, lol) they're sure to put on EVERYTHING.

    7. A gorgeous and affordable cheese board complete with four stainless steel cheese knives that they'll think cost you a heck of a lot more cheddar than it did.

    8. A velvety throw blanket that'll melt even the pickiest friends (and pickiest doggos) into cozy piles of mush.

    9. A brightly hued instant camera that'll make them the life of any party (not to mention help them channel 1989-era T. Swift).

    10. A subtly sassy baseball cap so they can at least demonstrate some self awareness about how gosh darn picky they are.

    11. The Squatty Potty, because everyone poops and would appreciate something that makes that a little easier.

    12. A gorgeous bouquet of flowers from The Bouqs Company, which can deliver sustainably grown gorgeousness as quickly as two hours after you order.

    13. A classic cardi with cool buttons that'll make layering a snap all season long — even if their office is basically a different temperature every day.

    14. A mug you can customize with their name, a favorite saying, or inside joke. Here's the tea: this is possibly one of the best under-$15 gifts around.

    15. A chic and timeless checked scarf they can rock in countless ways, no matter their style. Just ask the over 1,000 folks who've left positive reviews!

    16. A very complimentary doormat anyone would be happy to have greet them after a long day.

    17. Some super warm and cozy socks, because that's what Dumbledore wanted for Christmas and he's probably really hard to shop for.

    18. A crowd-pleasing game you can play next time you hang out, like Bananagrams, a slightly addictive word game with tons of variations so you'll never get bored.

    19. Delicate, personal earrings featuring shapes or letters that are meaningful to them.

    20. A sleek, BPA-free stainless steel water bottle so they can hydrate in style (even if you don't feel like splurging on a Hydro Flask). For a little extra dough, you can even personalize the bottle with their name!

    21. An 23andMe DNA kit to help them discover their roots and maybe even a story worthy of their own TLC show — who knows?

    22. A monthly sticker subscription, because is there a human alive who doesn't love stickers?

    23. An amazingly resilient (and affordable) waterproof Bluetooth speaker that simply can't be ~beat~ for use in the shower, on outdoor adventures, or pretty much anywhere.

    24. A Funko Pop! of their favorite fictional character, so they can display their nerdiness in the cutest way possible.

    25. An acupressure foot massage roller beloved by over 3,000 Amazon reviewers that anyone's tired tootsies will appreciate.

    26. A fancy gel pen that looks way more expensive than it is — they're sure to fall in love with write away.

    27. A comfy organic cotton travel set featuring a throw blanket, eye mask, and storage pouch so all of their flights can feel like a first-class trip.

    28. A My Life Story — So Far journal, a tome that they can continue to fill out throughout their entire lives. It's got space to fill out everything from the meaning of their name to their weirdest dating stories to (future) memories of kids and grandkids to where they were when important historical events happened. There's even space for storing photos!

    29. Or a luxe velvet journal emblazoned with their star sign that even the fussiest Virgos will adore.

    30. A set of gorgeous desktop vases, which are minimal enough to match any ~aesthetic~ but also sophisticated to the max.

    31. A donation in their name to a cause close to their heart.

    32. A double-sided laptop cleaning brush perfect for anyone who 1) owns a computer and 2) believes practical stocking stuffers are the best stocking stuffers.

    33. A classic structured work bag that'll make them look so professional, it may as well come with a promotion included.

    34. A gorgeous bottle rack so elegant and minimal, I can't imagine anyone ~wine~-ing about it.

    35. And an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot so Alexa can tend to their very specific needs.
