There’s nothing that beats the satisfaction of finding the perfect gift for a friend, family member, or that special someone in your life. However, finding that perfect gift can often feel like an impossible task — not to mention the pressure that comes with the holidays being right around the corner!

Stress no further, we got you covered. This holiday gift roundup includes gifts for the home as well as gift ideas for foodies, tech junkies, beauty lovers, kids, and more.

Gifts for the Home:

1. FLÎKR Fire, $99
The FLÎKR Fire is ideal for nature lovers and candle connoisseurs alike. Operating on just isopropyl alcohol, the FLÎKR Fire mimics the feeling of having a small campfire. It can be used to toast marshmallows or to enjoy the feeling of a toasty fire without a full fireplace. If $99 is a bit out of your price range, consider this portable campfire candle for $27.99 on Amazon instead. Apartment dwellers, be sure to ask your landlord if candles are permitted in your apartment unit.

2. Plant Subscription, $150 for 3 Month Subscription
Looking for a gift for a plant lover? Consider gifting them with the plant lover’s dream: a subscription to The Sill.
