Holiday Gift Guide: What to Give When You Don't Know What to Give

Usually I'm really good at getting my Christmas shopping done. I create an organized list either in my planner or on my phone (or both, because you can never have too many lists you know). Then it's time to tackle it piece by piece. Last year almost all my shopping was done between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. 

This year, not so much. I'm struggling to figure out what to get everyone on my list. I also have quite a few of those "Secret Santa" type gift situations. You know, where you want to give something nice to a co-worker or not-so-close relative or you're in an actual Secret Santa pool. You want to give something nice but there's a money limit or, to be honest, you're on a budget. 

I decided to reference back some of my best "little" gifts people have loved, that look great, and that won't break the bank. This is a tested list of gifts that work when you don't know what to give but you want to give something great.
