Friends! Even in this most bizarre and unpleasant year, some things are a constant, and one of those is our gift guide. Although the holidays may look very different in 2020, you may still need/want to shower loved ones with gifts — or perhaps just treat yourself.

We have linked a wide variety of retailers in this post, but this year more than ever, it’s a kindness — and fun! —  to buy from smaller shops that probably really need the business. To that end, if there’s a small business you love for gifts (or own!), please let us know in the comments. Finally, if you’re in the mood to browse our previous holiday Gift Guides for inspiration, they are all archived here. Also, our Afternoon Chat archive might be useful, especially in the book-buying arena. And all our many previous shopping posts are here!

As always: Nothing here was sponsored! Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, in which cases we earn a little money if you click through and buy something. We can assure you that all these gifts were personally chosen while we sat around drinking champagne and watching Cats.
