Maybe you’re here because you’re stumped on unique gift ideas for a fussy family member or in-law this holiday season. You’ve run through all the other gift guides we’ve run—the best gift ideas for men, design-obsessed people, the impossible to shop for—and still have not smashed that “checkout” button. Perhaps it’s time for a searching and fearless moral inventory. Or, you can click through 29 unique gift ideas from your friends here at GQ that will guide your hand on the most difficult-to-please people on your list. Below, you’ll find some not-for-everyone, but maybe just right for them gift ideas including games, gadgets, activity kits, and home goods from lesser-known retailers. We also included some off-the-beaten-path picks to shop from better-known retailers, like collectible trinkets and delightful little stocking stuffers. At the end of the day, it really is the thought that counts, though, so don’t stress out too much (just include a gift receipt).
