Who's the Question Mark on Your Gift List This Year?

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

What do you get the man (or lady) who has everything? Or a picky sibling who’s impossible to shop for? Or an eccentric grandparent?

As the holiday season rapidly approaches, your stress level in the gift-giving department is probably ramping up as well. Let us give you a hand with any blank spaces on your shopping list. We’re asking you to send some deets about a friend, colleague, or family member who you have no idea what to get for the holidays. We’ll pick several submissions and then brainstorm what we hope is the perfect gift for each.

Just fill out this short form and we’ll take a look.
