Sometimes the people we know the best are the hardest ones to shop for. It's easy to get into a rut of socks and ties, lingerie and jewelry—which is exactly why you'll find none of that on our list.
This year it's time to get creative. And by creative, we don't mean a d*ck in a box, because that joke's now a decade old. Below we've rounded up the best gifts for every relationship, no matter how long (or not-so-long) you've been in it.
If You're in a Brand New Relationship
Are you dating a lumberjack? A hipster barista? A Zach Galifianakis look-alike? Whoever it is, this beard oil, distilled from plants found in the Mojave Desert, is the gift he didn't know he needed. Using it will smooth, soften, and shape those whiskers. Plus, it's manlier than wrestling a grizzly bear—and way safer.
