If only gift-giving were so straightforward. Herein: we endeavor to make it thus. This is the curiously specific gift guide for all the curiously specific people in your life — er, 40 of them, at least.
Need something for the mom who hangs out in the wine cellar? The wingman you met shoveling snow for beer money freshman year? The dad who collects garage projects? The wife who still parties?
We’ve got them, along with the rest of your consorts and family, sorted. We even threw in a few gifts for ol’ numero uno himself. Because no matter what Jimmy says, there’s only one way to ensure you get exactly what you want this year.
