The best Christmas gifts for every family member, according to AI

Why Do The Royals Exchange Gifts on Christmas Eve?

The holiday season can be stressful, especially when it comes to gift-giving.

What do you get your sister who has everything and more thanks to her high-paying job? Or your dad who stubbornly refuses to wear anything but his clothes from 1986?

Don’t even bring up your best friend who you’re sure is the pickiest person on Earth.

Sure you can turn to online gift guides from people who claim to be experts. But they might pull an Oprah Winfrey and recommend you buy an out-of-budget jewelry box.
