In this post: Looking for Christmas gift ideas in a range of categories? This shopping guide is chock full of holiday gifts for most everyone on your list. ⇒
I love shopping for gifts.
Yep, I’m one of those people who enjoys spending an inordinate amount of time finding what I believe will be the exact right gift, taking into account each person’s unique qualities, idiosyncrasies and quirks.
Of course, this is based on my own perception, so whether I hit the mark or not is up to the recipient, but I do enjoy the process and try my best to hit the target.
I think putting in the effort when searching for gifts is a worthwhile endeavor and shopping online has made it so much easier to cover more ground and explore all the options.
But with that convenience and breadth of choice comes a lot of confusion that can be overwhelming and lead to indecision. This is why I’m a big fan of gift guides curated by people who’s opinions and aesthetics I respect.
Christmas Gift Ideas
I’ve compiled my own list of recommended gift options for the people on your list within a few popular categories, including gifts for the home, gifts for the fashion-conscious, gifts for self-pampering and technology gifts.
Among my selections you will find a range of price points, from inexpensive stocking stuffers and those appropriate for secret Santa, through a good bit of mid-range options, and on up to some special gifts that are reserved for the people you’re most close to.
My picks can all be found at Walmart, a resource I favor for the sheer breadth of choice, along with the reliable 2-day shipping and convenient return policy. If you were unaware you could find luxury items at Walmart, think again. There are great buys, quality classics and high-end options alike.
And while I’ve broken down this guide by category, you can always use their easy-to-use Gift Finder to find anything you’re looking for that’s not included here.

Gifts for the Home
It should be no surprise that my first category is gifts for the home. I’ve focused on decor accessories and home accents, including items that I either own myself, or would love to have. These are on-trend items from Walmart Home and the list comprises selections that would be perfect for a hostess gift for an event you are attending or a holiday gift for someone who loves to decorate their spaces.

This year the home category includes many options in organic neutral tones, with light woods and rattan leading the pack. There are cozy throws in faux fur or simple patterned plaids. You’ll also find lots of white, whether crisp and sleek or aged with patina. Metals in copper and warm brass round out the array.
Gifts for the Stylish Woman
My selections for women in the fashion category touch upon most of the trends that are current this season. From camel coats and animal print scarves to cropped destructed jeans and leather-look leggings. There are edgy boots, oversized sweaters, plaid shackets and designer totes. Try a knit duster, a puffed sleeve top, a boyfriend cardi or a moto jacket.
In addition, I incorporated some smaller accessories, including a rose gold watch band, a simple gold chain, a funky beanie and chic sunglasses.
Gifts for Self-Pampering
This is a super fun category that offers a range of choices, from stocking stuffers like lip balm and pretty soaps, to quality items for self-care at the vanity. There are a couple of lovely gift sets, along with a few great beauty tools, including my favorite flat iron, a versatile curler and a smart makeup mirror.
I also included several of my go-to perfumes, a terrific serum and wonderful skin care products. But my very favorite item is the eye-shadow palette which I’ve gifted to several people, including myself!
Tech and Gaming
My final category is for the techies in your life, which provides a variety of alternatives for everyone on your list. Why not make their lives easier or simply more entertaining? There are consoles for gamers, headphones for music lovers, laptops and tablets and streaming devices. There’s a robot vacuum, a smart home hub, a wi-fi system, and a turntable, too.
This is a great category to peruse for unique ideas and things for that someone who seems to have everything. I hope you find something among these gift lists to make your holidays a little simpler, a little more effortless and a lot more rewarding!
