Christmas is a time to disconnect from work, catch up with family, sleep in, watch the season's most anticipated movies and Netflix's newest offerings (can you say, Maniac!), (over)eat good food and, yes, sleep it off. It's also a great opportunity to hit the slopes or get out of town, if you can manage it. But despite these seemingly ideal conditions, the holidays are not all reindeer and fruitcake — the stress of holiday season gift shopping can take a serious toll. Never fear though, whether you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffers for men or need unique Christmas gift ideas, we're here to help.

I think a Sony Rx100 Mark V.”

Evan Sayles, a soon-to-be graduate of Tufts University, would like things for his postgraduation apartment. As he told us in our gift guide for 21-year-olds, “I’ve been asking around, trying to source some household supplies that I could move into my new apartment like kitchen supplies. Something small, portable, but would add utility in my life.” That could include a set of kitchen knives, like this all-purpose, three-piece set from Global. It’s on the expensive side, but if cared for properly, these knives will be useful for years to come.


Recent college graduates are heading into a new and exciting period of life — as well as one that will introduce more responsibilities and needs than they may have the budget for at the moment. As a recent graduate myself, I know that the most thoughtful and practical gifts I received made a much appreciated and tangible difference in my post-grad life, and I still haven't forgotten the people who made that possible.
