When we craft our holiday gift guides, we typically focus on toys, games and an assortment of STEM gift ideas because those are the things 1) we know most about and 2) people ask us about. But there are a large number of gift ideas that really fall outside those few categories. They’re typically items that are more home-focused. Whether it’s a puzzle, an outdoor toy or some electronic gadget, this gift guide is where we like to group those things. It’s also where we put more unique items that are perfect for the hard-to-shop-for person on our list. We all have a few of those and we typically scratch our heads trying to figure out the perfect gift. OMG, we all have a few of those on our list, right? Hopefully this list helps you find some unique gifts!
As we’ve said several times over the past couple of weeks (and I’ll say again), we encourage you to stop by the website daily to check on our holiday giveaways. We’re currently launching approximately two new giveaways per day and there will be several items from this list showing up!
