Shopping for everyone on your list is difficult enough while juggling work and family life. This year, we’ve removed the guesswork for you with our extensive holiday gift guide. Whether it’s a present for your brother, mother, grandpa or that obscure game-loving coworker you got for Secret Santa, there’s something for you on this list.

We’ll focus on the in-laws and siblings in your life here. Check out the links at the end of this post for everyone else.

Presents in-laws won’t request the gift receipt for

Hydroponics indoor garden growing system w/ 12 starter pods

This countertop indoor gardening system is designed to make herb gardening simpler (and cleaner) and make fresh-cut herbs more accessible to your in-laws. With an LED growing light and up to 12 pods to grow different herbs in the same ecosystem, it’s a pop of color, tech, and a hint of deliciousness that anyone’s kitchen could benefit from.

Ring peephole camera

Ring makes maintaining your privacy as easy as possible with this small peephole camera. It replaces your peephole and gives you the perfect visibility of your wanted (or unwanted) guests on the front porch. With two-way talk, easy DIY installation, and connectivity to the Ring app, it’s a small but mighty home upgrade the in-laws are sure to love.

DIY BBQ spice rub kit

Your father-in-law fires up the grill more often than you can even dream of, but let’s be honest… his spice game could use some work. While this is an excellent gift for him, it’s also something the entire family can enjoy once he’s added it to his spice shelf. With five rubs and four different collections, there’s a series of flavors for everyone.

Bean Box coffee sampler set

Everything is better when it’s gourmet, and with coffee, that’s no exception. This coffee sampler kit has four unique blends that bring something daring to your coffee mug. Each coffee is curated for each Bean Box, so you know you’re getting the best possible selection every time. It’s like gifting a cup of excellence.

Nyakers gingerbread snaps cookie tin

Who doesn’t love a fresh gingerbread cookie to go with their coffee? Having a tin of these cookies on the coffee table when guests visit is always nice and gives a sweet treat for everyone to indulge in while you visit. Each tin has four individually wrapped packages of cookies, so they won’t stale between visits, either.

GoveeLife 1500W indoor space heater with smart thermostat

If your in-laws are the type of people to keep the house too warm every single time you visit, they’re probably killing their heating budget. Well, now, they don’t have to. This small space heater offers a smart thermostat to help maintain a great temperature, portability, and 1500W of powerful output that will keep them toasty without turning their whole house into a sauna.

Top gifts for siblings

Rustic Town buffalo leather dopp kit

Believe it or not, having a proper toiletry bag for travel is a game-changer. Made of buffalo leather with a classic design and dual-pull zippers, this kit comes in five colors and grants massive utility. It’s a unisex design with durable materials. What’s not to love?

Bose QuietComfort earbuds with active noise cancellation

In our attention economy, focus is hard to come by — and that’s the real gift you’re giving here. Bose is known for active noise cancellation, and with this comfortable fit, these earbuds have every feature you want and nothing you don’t.

The Ridge minimalist wallet w/ RFID blocking technology

Bulky leather wallets are a thing of the past. The Ridge is a minimalist wallet that condenses that heft in your front pocket or saves space in a purse or backpack, depending on how you carry it. Best of all, it includes RFID-blocking technology, so you won’t have to worry about identity theft while on the go.

Iron Flask metal sports water bottle w/ 3 lids

Iron Flask is the ultimate gym companion. With a double-walled interior that keeps drinks cool (or hot), you get hours upon hours of maintaining your beverage temperature. This works at the gym, in the console of your car, or just as a replacement for plastic water bottles. Better yet, it includes three lid types, so you can use it for multiple purposes whenever you feel like it.

Anker 24,000mAh 3-port power bank for iOS and Android devices

We all know one person in our family whose phone keeps dying (and it’s usually your sibling). Anker has this powerful 24,000mAh power bank with three separate ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously. Whether your sibling is an Android or iOS user, they can benefit from Anker’s power bank. Charge a laptop, phone, Bluetooth earbuds, and just about any other personal electronic with this.

Ninja Foodi 2-basket air fryer

Can you think of one good reason not to give someone an air fryer? Neither can we. Ninja is the top of the line when it comes to kitchen appliances, and this dual-basket air fryer is a testament to that. Cook two halves of the same meal at once, program it with different presets, and give the gift of shorter meal cooking times.

XLeader Bluetooth shower speaker w/ IPX7 waterproof

Your sibling usually blasts music from the bathroom, but putting your phone on the bathroom counter isn’t as effective as having a Bluetooth shower speaker like this. With IPX7 waterproofing, a suction cup on the back, and easy Bluetooth connectivity, it’s a straightforward gift with tons of utility that will be used again and again.
