Gifts for Adults

For adults, the gift ideas by age are organized into decades. (We also have milestone birthday gift ideas for 18th, 21st birthdays, and so on.)

Each listing has a section for anyone, for him, and for her. Plus we typically throw in some other intriguing ideas. This might include party ideas, gag gifts, subscription boxes, birthday games, card quotes and memes, and much more.

Trust us, you’ll find some pretty unique ideas here.

Gifts for Kids

For kids, we hit each and every year for boys and girls so that you can unearth that special gift for your child, a friend, a grandchild, or other relative.

We take special care with the children’s gifts so that you discover non-gimmicky-or-trendy gifts that kids actually use for more than, like, 2 seconds.

Sidebar: Regarding toy gifts…

Yes, we have kids ourselves, and yes, we’ve had *those* types of toys in our house. You know what we mean. That kind of toy which typically makes noise and takes up lots of space. They use batteries, and often connect to a phone app. They also generally get played with for about an hour on day one, ten minutes on days two through five, and then graduate into an honorary role of “taking up closet space” for the next few months or years.

Well, our goal is to completely avoid those gifts for kids by giving them much better things. We dig a little deeper, think a little harder, and try to find gifts that require imagination.
