Someone’s birthday is coming up soon, and if you know them well, chances are you’ll want to get them a special kind of gift but have no clue what it should be. On the flip side, there’s a chance that you don’t know them well — then what?!

We see you waving the white flag, signaling for help in the gift ideas department, and we’re ready and waiting with unique and thoughtful birthday gift ideas that we feel will save the day.

Not only will you find gift ideas for guys and gals, but we’ve got some for your boss, coworkers, best friends, and yes, we even have ideas for someone you don’t know well. How about the person who has everything? (ugh!) Or for millennials, or the introvert that doesn’t want to call attention to their birthday? Yep, all of them, too.

With a little out-of-the-box thinking, we came up with some ideas that you may not find anywhere else; ideas where thoughtfulness and meaningfulness take the lead and focus on experiences, personalized gifts, DIY gifts, group gifts, and since we all know money doesn’t grow on trees (we WISH!), some thoughtful, budget-friendly gifts, too.

We want you to feel inspired and confident that you found the perfect gift for someone, so we think you’ll discover quite a few thoughtful and unique gems here.
