As we get to official last-minute holiday shopping season, you’ve probably got someone on your list you still can’t pin down. The never-satisfied boss? The too-cool teen? The much-hipper friend?

Their picks, arranged by the person who might receive them, are here to help in the slideshow below.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
