36 Holiday Gifts Even “Difficult” People Will Love

·29 min read

For the most part, we actually enjoy buying gifts. As professional shoppers, we delight in finding that one trinket that’s going to surprise our loved ones, but there are always outliers in this shopping scenario — the people that leave us hemming, hawing, and endlessly scrolling to find the just-right thing that will satisfy their highly-exacting tastes. The kind-of-difficult ones.

You know the type: if you’re going to get this person a sweater, you can’t get them just any sweater; it has to be ethically sourced, top-of-the-line cashmere. A simple glassware set just won’t do, either; it has to be design snob-approved. Well: look no further, harried shopper. Because when it comes to those hard-to-please folks in your life, we’ve got you (and them) covered. Ahead, find 36 gifts for difficult people that will actually pass muster with your pickiest pals.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Bonne Maison Striped Socks


The Giftee: Me! (Emily Ruane, Refinery29’s shopping team fashion writer)

The Rationale: As a sock person from way back, I’m always on the hunt for a cool, well-made pair to complement my preferred footwear, which includes an assortment of sneakers, loafers, and of course, CLOGS. This luxe pair from French brand Bonne Maison has a beautiful mix of muted tones that will go with many a ’fit.
