Face it, giving gifts that are both purposeful and thoughtful so the people you love feel like you really understand them isn’t easy. We’ve all spent hours and hours trying to find the perfect gift for someone, only to be disappointed by their disappointment when they received it. So the question remains: What gifts do you get for your high brow, picky, quirky, low-maintenance or just plain confusing friends and family this season that they will actually use and love? We’ve got you covered.
Gifts for the Techie
Getting gifts for your techie friend may seem tough, but luckily, technology is always changing. This gives you the opportunity to get the latest gadgets and gizmos for your tech-loving friends!
Our Top Pick: Tile, $25
The Tile is great for the friends that misplace things all too often. Connect it to your keys, your bag or slip it in your jacket pocket.
Our Second Choice: TravelCard Portable Charger, $29
The TravelCard charger is a game changer for anyone with a smartphone…so basically everyone. Not much bigger than a credit card, the TravelCard charger is easy to carry and fits nearly anywhere, even your wallet.

Gifts for the Homebody
We all have that friend that would rather stay home than do just about anything else. For this friend, comfort is just about the most important thing on the list!
Our Top Pick: Casaluna Chunky Knit Blanket, $69
Casaluna’s knit blanket combines texture, comfort and weight to create our favorite blanket to cozy up in, especially during the D.C. winter. We suggest opting for the knit blanket in the shade “clay”.

With a footbed made of memory foam and a sole made of nonslip rubber, you can’t go wrong with these incredibly comfortable slippers. Better yet, these slippers are machine washable!
