GIFT GUIDE

Unconventional Presents—for the Person Who Has Everything

Because we all know (at least) one.

Welcome to The List’s Gift Guides, where we round up some of the best holiday offerings around—all designed and crafted by our clever List members, of course.

It’s nearly winter, and that means a few things: It’s dark outside at an inappropriate hour, layers are crucial, and … it’s time to get everyone a gift, including that person that’s impossible to shop for. Below, find unconventional gifts for the person who has everything.

Each brand below is a member of The List, the destination for all things Surface-approved. Want to join The List? Contact our team to find out how to apply.
