Let's take your mind off of *gestures* all this.
Gift giving is an art form, and we're of the belief that when you're completely stumped, send flowers. There's something uniquely mortifying about sending a box of chocolates to a new vegan, or wine to someone who's not drinking. Plus, flowers brighten up any home, and will help bring in the holiday cheer, which we could all use a little more of right now. If you're looking for the ultimate gift, go with these six flower delivery services. You won't have to stress out about delivery or timing, because these companies deliver nationwide, and ensure that your picks come fresh and beautiful. It's such a thoughtful gesture, and in a time where we're not all gathering like usual, a little love goes a long way. Keep on reading to shop our selects, and bookmark this for birthdays, anniversaries, you name it. Related: Meet the Best Stocking Stuffers of the Holiday Season

A White Elephant exchange is, in short, terrifying. Willing participants are tasked with achieving gift-giving nirvana for people they perhaps never even realized worked in their office or counted as part of their social circle. All of this begs the question: how does one buy a present for someone they don't actually know? We’ve got 20 answers to that query — and each of them not-so-coincidentally clocks in under $20 (the acceptable gift-limit for near-strangers).We did a deep dive into the treacherous caverns of the World Wide Web and nabbed a collection of the most eccentric yet affordable souvenirs that 2020 has to offer. In the upcoming slides, you’ll discover everything from the likes of mini waffle makers to churro latte kits, ranch dressing ornaments, and other prezzies that absolutely no one needs but will certainly want. Cue the holiday-themed sighs of relief. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly in a so-called "ugly Christmas sweater." The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard - and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish. Complete with bold sparkles to some serious Christmas cheer, these fashion pieces are merry, bright, and decidedly cool. Plus, if you're a Peanuts fan, there's a sweater you've got to see to believe. The holidays are coming up faster than you can blink, and you don't want to be caught wearing something you feel neutral about. So get into the holiday spirit, and shop our favorite not-ugly-at-all "ugly Christmas sweaters" ahead! - Additional reporting by Lauren Harano Related: Have Yourself a Schitty Holiday Season With These 15 "Ugly" Schitt's Creek Christmas Sweaters

Imagine this: You're mindlessly scrolling through Instagram and there, nestled between another selfie and a meme, is an ad. But not just any ad - one that makes your thumb stop. It's rare that I pay attention to ads when I'm on the app, let alone one that makes me stop and seriously consider buying whatever it's selling. Yet that's exactly how I stumbled upon my latest obsession: an Artís makeup brush. You've probably seen the videos of influencers using these brushes to apply everything from tinted SPF to concealer. But what attracted me was the flawless finish they created. Could using one of these brushes really deliver the same natural finish as applying product with my fingers? The answer is yes. After all, the more I can avoid touching my face these days, the better. My everyday makeup routine has never been easier - or more germ-free. Thanks, Instagram.
Even the pros love 'em.From Good Housekeeping
