These Are The Gifts Our Shopping Editors Are Actually Buying

As my therapist would tell you, it’s easier to spot shifts in other people’s lives than to see them in your own. Perhaps this is why hearing what other people are gifting their loved ones during the holiday makes it a little bit easier to find the perfect presents for your people.

When you see someone else is buying a gift that you know will satisfy a person on your list who stumps you every year, a little lightbulb of inspiration will ping, telling you to buy that very same gift. A good present is a good present, and hearing about someone else’s idea can offer much-needed inspiration for your shopping list.

So, in an effort to help you find the best gifts this holiday season and to share our good ideas, we asked HuffPost staff and a few friends at BuzzFeed about the things they’re actually buying (or the things they hope Santa will bring them). By all means, copy us! We’ll be glad you did.
