I'm the Community Editor at SheKnows. My perfect day would be camped in the middle of nowhere, reading an excellent book and writing something true.

Need a gift for someone who never sends a list? Here are 25 gifts they’ll love

Everybody has a friend who they feel obligated to buy a gift for even though that person flat-out refuses to share any ideas about what they want, has impeccable taste and also tends to treat themselves to all of the things they want anyway. (If you don’t have that friend… is it you?)

That unbearable-to-shop-for, love-them-anyway person is who this list keeps in mind. It’s full of every type of gift, from practical to quirky, spendy to cheap, techy to simple, glam to hilarious. Want to celebrate your friend’s love of pizza? Great. There’s a gift for that. Know your friend is constantly losing their car keys? Wonderful. We’ve got it covered. Does your friend hate waking up in the dark during the winter months? Yep, something here for that too.

We hope your friend appreciates the effort. If not, maybe this will be the last year they choose to forgo a wish list.
