“My favorite IRL store, but thankfully, they also have a website where you can buy their signature fun, quirky stuff. It’s my go-to both in-person and online. What’s not to love about a spoon rest that says ‘REST IN GREASE'” on it?!” —Elizabeth Lilly

Get the pop floral bottle for $18, and the cat person mug for $18.95. Be sure to check out Fishs Eddy’s holiday gift section!


Hot Topic has ALL of the fun fandom and nerdy things for the loved one whose interests can’t be found at a typical department store.


Etsy has tons of handcrafted offerings that make for amazing gifts! Things from jewelry, to shirts, to tons of customizable options that can bring a smile to the face of any gift recipient.

Side note from me, re: the necklace on the left! I’ve never ordered anything personalized on Etsy before, and I’m not sure why, but I ordered this necklace with low expectations. I wanted to get the heart from my Taylor Swift autograph turned into a necklace, but I didn’t want to pay a ton of money for it, either. First of all, the seller, Caitlyn Minimalist, sent me sketches of the heart and made sure I was happy with it before proceeding to make the necklace! I actually received the necklace a few days earlier than anticipated, which was a really nice surprise! And it doesn’t look or feel cheap at all! It’s one of my favorite necklaces I own! Also, let me add, that according to the seller’s page, the cut-off for Christmas ordering has passed, however, it’s still a great gift option if you’re not planning on seeing the gift recipient until after Christmas, anyways!

Get the personalized necklace from Caitlyn Minimalist for $29.62 (three finishes, and nine sizes), and the personalized crayons from Art 2 The Extreme for $19.95+. Be sure to check out Etsy’s holiday gift section!


Society6 offers artsy prints you can get on a variety of gift-able items like mugs, throw pillows, canvases, bedding, and more! Even funny phrases (as outline below) look intricate and pretty.


Bloomingdale’s has tons of splurge-worthy presents like beauty gift sets and ~fancy~ versions of board game favorites to make any gift recipient feel like true royalty.


“This time of year they always have great sales, and their return policy is 365 days, so you won’t need to worry about the receiver having, like, three days before the 30-day return policy.” —galimabean

Get the fragrance gift kit for $29, and the Monopoly deluxe game set for $119.99. Be sure to check out Bloomingdale’s holiday gift section!


RedBubble offers practically a bajillion fun prints you can order as stickers, bedding, tote bags, laptop and phone cases, throw pillow covers, and more!


BaubleBar has beautiful pieces of jewelry at prices so easy on your wallet, it’s the perfect place to buy all the blinged out prezzies for everyone special in your life.


LookHUMAN sells merchandise perfect for anyone who loves pop culture, puns, and a fabulous mix of the two.


And TeePublic offers niche, but hilariously-designed items for the person who has a great sense of humor and very specific interests. Plus, you’ll be helping to support all of the amazing illustrators who contribute their work to the site!


“For all kinds of cool and unusual things for the person who has everything. I actually just ordered a T-shirt from Teepublic for my brother for Christmas. I was able to find him something that’ll satisfy his niche tastes and support an illustrator who has a storefront on there.”—Elizabeth Lilly

Get the T-shirt from Amanda Panda for $14 (available in six styles, various colors, and sizes men S—2XL or female S—2XL), and the phone case from THE COMPASS ROSe for $20 (available for various devices, and two styles).
