Got a super creative person in your life? Never know what to gift them?

Giving gifts is such a personal experience, and guessing what someone might like — even if you know them intimately — can be challenging. Does everyone want a candle? A Starbucks gift card? We’re willing to bet the answer is no.

When picking out gifts for people with unique tastes, it’s important to shop local first! There's so much creativity in the world, no matter where you live. Go scope out your downtown or your hippest neighborhood for sweet little shops. Look out for craft fairs and art bazaars. Whatever you do, don’t go to the mall on a Saturday. Just don’t. Getting out during the holiday season can be a headache anyway!

Of course, you can always rely on a Meow Wolf-related gift. There's Legit Concerns' book, I Want To Write A Poem To Inspire The World, or Obsidiopolis’ super cozy and cool Gemini sweatshirt, but we get it, it’s nice to have some variety. Thus, we’ve curated a hyper-specific list of radical gift ideas for your entire crew. Yes, even your morbid grandma. Behold...
