When it comes to Christmas, buying for the same group of people stumps me year after year! What do I buy for a co-worker, neighbor, relative I've only met twice, or my kids' teachers?! Luckily, Macy's always OWNS the gift-giving game because they literally have something for everyone!! From the gourmet chef, to the techie or even just a generic gift that's still totally thoughtful, we picked our favorites that Macy's has to offer in all price ranges!
Words with Friends
Besides being, arguably, the best game of all time for the wordsmith types, Scrabble is such a fun way to interact as a family!! I love that the tiles lock together, so there's no more losing your whole game with any minor movement! Seriously this little update to a classic game is a GAME-CHANGER. Pun definitely intended.
THE BEST robo vacuum
This is the HIGHEST RATED robot vacuum on Macy's (AND it's in the top 10 on Consumer Reports)!!! I love that it's all white so that it's not an eye-sore when it's doing its thang. It's on sale for 40% off right now, making it only $169.99!! This is a CRAZY deal and would be the perfect higher-ticket gift to go in on with your siblings for your parents!
Weighted blankets are ALL.THE.RAGE right now. This one has amazing reviews, AND I love that it's white (and not some weird/ugly color), so it will blend perfectly with white bedding. The #1 complaint I've heard from people about weighted blankets is that you can't wash them, but you CAN wash the cover on this one, which is AWESOME.
Weighted blankets have been touted for helping people sleep better and lowering anxiety! This would be a really thoughtful gift for someone who is going through a hard time or has insomnia! It's also on sale for almost 50% off right now, after using code SHOP at checkout!
Gold Kitchen Gadgets
I have never seen anything like these beautiful gold kitchen tools! They are a statement piece at a bargain of a price! How cute would it be to tie a ribbon around one (or all!) of these kitchen essentials to give as a gift! I love the idea of gifting these to neighbors, a college student, newlyweds, friends who love cooking (or anyone who needs to mix anything, ever), or just a stylish friend who would love the pop of GOLD in the kitchen!
Right now, these tools start at only $8.73 which is SIXTY percent off retail!!! This is an amazing price, but especially for something created by Martha Stewart herself!
Le Creuset Gold Knob
Do you know anyone who LOVES to cook but already has kitchen gadgets and gizmos a'plenty?? Both my mom and sister fit that category, so I love the idea of dressing up cookware with this gold knob! Think of it as an accessory for your kitchen, and a way to personalize the best room in the house! The knob is on sale for 31% off right now, making it only $19.99.
Anabelle has been doing chess club, and it's preeeeeety much the cutest thing ever! Plus, I swear chess makes you like way smarter. Also, what a great way to bring together totally different generations for a universally-loved game! Ani played chess with both my dad and Neil's dad at Thanksgiving, so I knew I wanted to get her a set like this for Christmas!
This is an AMAZING buy at only $11, which is perfect for the time of life we are in (cue Taylor Swift's “This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things”). I have my eye on this set as well, for when the girls get older! The nicer version would be a great choice for a grandpa or uncle who LOVES himself a good game of chess (who doesn't?!).

All for one, one for all!
I chose these gifts specifically because their audience is inclusive of just about everyone! Everyone HAS to cook (even if it's just pancakes), plus playing games is such an underrated way to spend traditional quality time with those you love!
I really love the idea of giving the blanket to a friend in the hospital or nursing home, or to someone who struggles with anxiety! We also rounded up even MORE gifts from Macy's we think you and yours will LOVE. Truly, there's something for everyone here. Happy shopping, and Happy Christmas!
