Tis the season for holiday shopping! While you can never go wrong with a Zenni Gift Card, we scoured the internet (our favorite way to shop, of course) to bring you nifty gift ideas for your nearest and dearest that run the gamut from quirky to cool and downright practical.


Wine Lover

For the wine lover in your life, we found some great gifts that they will surely love, including a fun and fashionably discreet wine dispensing handbag ($130) that lets you take your Chardonnay wherever you go. Another clever wine gift is this handy wine glass holder ($9.50) for the bathtub. Portable Wine Wipes ($8.99)are indispensable when it comes to removing embarrassing red wine stains from your teeth when out and about. These wine pens ($25) for wine glasses are a great gift idea for anyone that likes to throw parties. For the true oenophile, the Winerd ($17.99) board game is a perfect gift. This sophisticated drinking game will test the knowledge of wine enthusiasts of all levels.



Know a bachelor that could use a little help on the home front? How about a subscription to Freshly, a weekly, chef-prepared meal delivery program, or a Roomba ($274) vacuum robot? Any well-groomed guy would also appreciate a subscription to Birchbox Man ($60) a monthly shipment of deluxe grooming samples that comes with either a stylish accessory or gadget. Any beer drinker will appreciate a handmade bottle opener and cap catcher ($25). For the man still mourning the end of Mad Men, we found this cool homage to Don Draper in the form of a clock ($29) made from recycled vinyl records.



If you’ve been punked one too many times by a certain jokester in your circle, we found the ultimate (harmless) payback in the form of a spring-loaded glitter bomb ($23.99). Just make sure they open it at their house! Anyone with a sense of humor will appreciate a Human Organ for Transplant ($19.99) lunch bag, which conveniently holds a six-pack too, or a set of adorably tasteless cat butt coasters ($15)—handmade for that special touch! When all else fails, there’s always the no-fail mullet ($9.99) headband or a whimsical goldfish drain stopper ($9.99).



We found some sweet gifts that any grandma will love, like a set of personalized mugs ($30) that feature illustrations of each family member, or a pair of cozy, microwaveable slippers ($24). A handmade owl eyeglass holder ($24) is perfect for keeping her Zennis safe. For something a little more out of the box, how about an Ancestry DNA ($99) kit?



What gamer wouldn’t love this awesome controller throw pillow ($17)? Perhaps a World of Warcraft Monopoly ($39.95) game is more their speed. For the nostalgic gamer, you can’t go wrong with this NES classic mini ($59.99) or a Legend of Zelda Ocarina ($60).



As you make the holiday party rounds, you don’t want to show up empty-handed. We found just the right gifts to charm any host. The Drunken Botanist ($11.99) is a cool gift for any armchair mixologist or, for a personal touch, you can create a set of DIY coasters. This pineapple tumbler ($35) is a swanky gift with just enough quirk to delight any host. A flirty apron ($33.99) with a retro vibe is also a sweet gift. For a real splurge, how about a home canning kit ($64.99)?



For those who just can’t—or won’t—get into the holiday spirit, we found a Go Away (not so) welcome mat ($21.99) and this full zip face hoodie ($26). If your favorite party pooper is flakier than a pumpkin pie crust, they’ll surely appreciate The Little Book of Big Excuses ($9.95). If you want to splurge on your favorite curmudgeon, there’s the anti-social, yet oh-so-cozy ostrich pillow ($99).
