Best Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your 2023 Holiday Shopping List

From neighbors to our children's caregivers, to the random work gift exchange, there are always so many gifts to plan and prep, so how do you make sure they are all thoughtful and actually useful for the recipient? Take a look below to cross everyone off your holiday shopping list!



Your colleagues often feel like your second family, but sometimes it can seem awkward trying to decide what you should get for your co-workers or boss. No need to fear!

Try these fun work ideas:

  • Batch Treats: Make your famous cookies, snack mix, or salsa and then gift everyone a little goodie bag attached with a cute note (bonus points for a holiday pun!)
  • Desk Trinkets - plants, notepads, coasters, etc.
  • A donation to their favorite cause (a perfect last-minute gift)
  • Gift card for coffee or snacks
  • A gift for the whole group — like a puzzle for breaks, a team espresso machine, or air diffuser
  • Laptop stickers



Teachers do a lot for our kiddos and deserve so much appreciation.

  • Lottery tickets
  • Snacks or candy for their desk


'Secret' Gift Giving

Secret Santa and White Elephant gifts are usually something small and often have some kind of price limit, making it sometimes difficult to brainstorm a thoughtful or unique gift for the recipient.

Stocking Stuffers

Stockings don’t give you a whole lot of room for great gifts, but you don't want to just add in things that will end up in the trash either.
