Christmas is coming up and, if you’re like me, you haven’t even thought about what gifts you are going to buy for anyone. Even though Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, there is a lot of stress that goes into finding the perfect gift. This is especially true if you plan on buying a gift for multiple people. You feel like it’s your job to find the perfect gift for everyone in your life.

If you’re at a loss on what to get for anyone in your life, this is for you. This guide will help you decide on what to get anyone in your life. I have compiled a list to help you decide on what type of gift to get. I have found the perfect gift for athletes, to the person who loves to reflect on life.

I know that most of us are balling on a budget, so I made every gift on here under $25. If you are like me and are a last minute shopper, I made sure that most of these gifts are on Amazon Prime, so that way they can come in two days or less. Amazon really comes in handy during times like this.

For the friend who lives for their facial routine:
Do you know anyone who is constantly telling you about a new skincare product they tried? Or someone who religiously follows the same skin routine everyday. This is the list you need to be on to find them a gift.

At the end of the day, you should never feel required to get anyone a gift. Exchanging gifts shouldn’t define your friendships, but if you genuinely want to get someone a gift, then I hope this list has been helpful for you.
