Between frantically wrapping up work for the year and bouncing from festive drinks to silly season parties, December can feel a little crazy — and that's before you've even thought about Christmas gift ideas.
While we have all year to prepare, somehow it creeps up and catches us by surprise every single time. And, with each new year brings new friends, family members and significant others into our lives, which adds another tally onto the ever-growing list of people to shop for.
Among all the social and work obligations we still have to find time to fit in our gift shopping which in of itself is rarely a small feat, so even the shortest shopping list covering off our closest loved ones can feel daunting.
Throw in getting our boss for Secret Santa and having to buy for our bestie who already has everything, and it's enough to have us stress-eating an entire chocolate advent calendar in one sitting.
Thankfully, we've come prepared this year and put in some serious recon on what to gift every single person in your life.Scroll on for ELLE's perfectly curated Christmas gift guides for 2022.
