We know the holidays can be a stressful time, which is why we created this obsessively edited list of holiday gift ideas last year to help you out. And this year, we’re doing it again — because there’s still no reason to white-knuckle it through December 26 when we can do the research for you. Consider this your home base for all things holiday-related on the Strategist in 2017. We’re compiling lists of the best internet deals, sharing the best gifts we’ve ever given or received, and even asking hard-to-shop-for people, “What Do You Want?

You’ll find all of our coverage of holiday gift ideas right here; we’ll be constantly updating this page as the season continues.

And don’t miss out on our (still very useful) 2016 holiday gift guide.
