When I think about Christmas, the kids instantly come to mind. The grown ups though can be the hardest to buy for when you have no idea what they want or need. At least the kids give you lists, right?
These are some fabulous ideas for the adults in your life. Moms, dads, grandparents, adult children, other relatives and friends. Most of these gifts are very universal with a few men or women specific things sprinkled in.

Perfect list, I actually have some people on my list I had no idea what to get them. This guide just helped me check them off. Love the fact that many gifts are gender neutral too.
I would love to have the Ninja Coffee Bar System, the action cam and that vacuum this Christmas. I hope Santa gets to read this! :)
I wouldn’t mind having something like the Ninja Coffee Bar System. I love that it is just under $200!
I really love getting fun gourmet gift basket. Although, that butterfly mat looks pretty darn awesome now that I am hand washing dishes!
