#1. Soap - People are always giving each other soap. Some soap is fancy, some bubbly, but they’re all basically soap.
#2. Books - Like soap, books are affordable and easy to wrap. With sites like Amazon, it’s easy to choose books for people because most people who are members of Amazon have a wish list from which you can shop from.
#3. Clothing - If you’re on a budget, socks will do. For people you actually care about, a nice warm sweater for the winter or a stylish pair of clothes will be greatly appreciated.
#4. Chocolate - I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like chocolate. Around Christmas there are chocolate Santas, chocolate gold foil coins, and Godiva for people who are extra special.
#5. Stuffed animals - These are mainly for children, unless you know someone who collects them.
#6. Jewelry - Men sometimes give women necklaces and bracelets for Christmas, while women give men watches and chains.
#7. Electronics - Things like iPads and cell phones are good presents for people you care enough about to spend a lot of money on.
#8. Gift Certificates - If you can’t come up with a good gift idea, gift certificates are extremely convenient and useful presents. The only problem is that the receiver will know exactly how much money you spent on it.
