Mother-in-law, coworker, cousin, woman you just met through a mutual friend who you’ve been texting with since last Monday: We know it’s tough buying gifts for your diverse and far-reaching crew. Luckily, all you have to do is check out this curated list of very good gifts for pretty much everyone on your nice list this year.
17 Very Good Gifts for Pretty Much Anyone on Your List
1. Koolaburra By Ugg Milo Scuff Slipper
No one on our list would say “no” to these faux-fur-lined slippers with a slip-free sole from Koolaburra by UGG, perfect for shuffling around the house or keeping toes warm while on back-to-back Zoom calls.
2. Verilux Happylight Lumi
It’s winter, it’s grey and it’s 2020. Cheer them up with the coveted happy light from Verilux, which emits a bright-white light that mimics sunlight for all the benefits of full spectrum light without having to step foot outside.
3. Magic Linen Waffle Bathrobe
Mom, best friend, brother-in-law: This hooded bathrobe will wow all of them. It’s made from a puffy waffle weave of linen-cotton blend that increases absorption and keeps them cozy long after the shower (no judgement).
4. Marvis 7 Days Of Flavor Toothpaste Gift Set
One thing we never thought we’d buy for someone else: toothpaste. That is, until we came across these vintage-looking colorful tubes in seven different flavors for each day of the week.
5. Timberland Kinsley Boots

Sitting all day in the same position isn’t great for anyone, but these compression socks—which increase circulation, reduce soreness and swelling, and offer relief from leg aches and pain— are a pretty good salve.
11. Dr. Martens 2976 Chelsea Boot
You can’t go wrong with a classic Chelsea boot silhouette and the rubber sole on this pair, from legendary shoemaker Dr. Martens, also makes them super practical. They’re a go-to for trendsetters and timeless wardrobe enthusiasts alike.
