Gift Guide: Get Personal

Give someone something with their photo, monogram or even zodiac sign involved, and they'll think you thought about them more than you actually might've. And that's what the holidays are all about: sliding through the gift-giving process with way less effort than needed, leaving tons of time to watch Love Actually and online shop for yourself. (But first you have to buy these things below, which each make awesome, extra-thoughtful-seeming presents.)

For your mother, who'd love nothing more than to see your sentimental scribbles every time she reaches into her purse.

For your best friend, who reveres fortune cookie wisdom and hibernates when Mercury's in retrograde.

For your boyfriend, who will meet you halfway fashion-wise as long as you keep it masculine and comfortable.

For your roommate, since you needed an excuse to immortalize that photo of her singing Milli Vanilli karaoke with her eyes closed.

For your sister, who'd feel much more glamorous in these than her old college t-shirts and broken elastic boxers.

For your brother, who loves his techy headphones but hates that they're not tangle-proof.
file

For your Secret Santa recipient, to prove you aren't re-gifting. (Unless, of course, your name starts with the same letter.)
file

For your nephew, who might not appreciate its old school coolness, but who will love its Superman-like quality.

For your Dad, who still insists on turning off the GPS and finding his way with Rand McNally.
