For the budding photographer: We all have that family member that insists on taking pictures long after everyone’s face has started hurting from smiling. With this smartphone photography kit, they can take their photography hobby to the next level! It includes clip-on lenses and even a tiny tripod to capture the best shot your smartphone can take. With today’s smartphones having the megapixels of professional cameras, this kit could help turn out some seriously awesome photos.

For the makeup addict: With the abundance of makeup tutorials on the internet, the look of a professionally made-up face is not uncommon. For the makeup addict in your life, give them a gift set from Sephora or Ulta, where multiple brands come in one set so the recipient of the gift can try something they may not have thought to try before. This bold lip kit is sure to be a hit for the holidays.

For the self-proclaimed chef: This all-in-one divided skillet is sure to be a hit with anyone, but especially the amateur chef. With five compartments in one pan, this cooking utensil will step up anyone’s game in the kitchen. Plus, who doesn’t love the fact you would only have to clean one dish afterwards?

For the music junkie: You know the type, the friend who doesn’t go anywhere without headphones in their ears or the cousin that won’t back out of the driveway without having their phone plugged in and blasting the latest and greatest hit. Now, you can give them the gift of music in the shower. That’s right, this Bluetooth speaker is waterproof. This is the gift of music that keeps on giving in any environment!

For the one with wanderlust: Do you have that one friend you can’t keep up with, where every other weekend they’re jetting off to a new city or state, or the friend that backpacks as far as they can go? With this scratch-off map, your travel-bugged buddy can proudly display their adventures and see how many more places they can visit. It will be a great conversation piece and a great keepsake for years down the line.

For the fitness guru: Your on-the-go friend or family member will love this blender, where you load up your BPA-free bottle, set it on the base, and voila – you have a smoothie to go! This nifty little gadget cuts out the middle man dishes, saving them valuable time they could be using to get to the gym and utilizing one less dish every time. The bottle offers a carrying hook on the lid to attach to a gym bag and get moving. Plus, it comes in seven different colors.

For the techie: This smart notebook is a must-have for techies who need to have the latest and greatest tech products. Not only is it eco-friendly in the fact that it’s reusable up to five times, but your notes can easily be uploaded to your computer or smartphone.

With these gift ideas to point you in the right direction, you’re sure to please everyone on your holiday shopping list this year. Don’t forget to stick to a budget!
