2. For the Mom who “don’t need anything”

“Mom, what would you like for Christmas?” The answer is always, “I don’t need anything.” Which means it’s up to us to discover what Mom really needs! 

Mom’s been complaining her shoulder bag being too heavy, so we’re searching for “lightweight bag” in the Shoulder Bags category. She also says light colors make her look younger, so let’s filter colors too.



We’re not skimping on budget for mom! So let’s sort by price from high to low. It’ll also help filter for more mature style. Then, start scrolling!


3. For the kids next door

You likely haven’t seen the kids next door for years. How tall are they now? What are their hobbies? It could be hard to guess!

Social proof means a lot, so let’s see what’s hot in popular teenager categories like stationery and electronic accessories. Then sort by popularity.


We found an adorable illustration washi tape! Then we check the shop’s About section and discover it is designed by students, and their shop has near perfect review! Now that’s a good story for the kids.


4. For the creative friend

Quality and originality is key for this artistic friend who is enthusiastic about supporting independent designers and environmental causes.

We hear Thai design’s pretty hot now—so start by searching Thailand and filter the item location to Thailand. Then, filter the material to natural cotton and linen.



Beautiful! Perhaps there are more exciting options? Let’s filter the style instead for ethnic styles. Wow, she’ll love these original styles that really stand out!


5. For the hostess

Should this gift also be for the host too? Honestly, it’s much easier to please the hostess, but we don’t want the host to feel left out!

For a house party, a presentable packaging pretty much gets the job done. Let’s search for gift sets, and check the Home and Living category.



Set a budget in price filters for gifts appropriate for the context. Let’s also check the Tea category—tea gift sets are always a good idea!



Now you know how we do it! Use these tips to accommodate whatever’s on your mind about the person you’re buying gifts for!
