Birthday Gift Ideas For The Different Kind Of People In Your Life
I may be the odd man out here, but I don’t like giving or receiving gift cards as a gift. To me, they’re impersonal and an easy way out.
If you have a relationship with someone, you have a good idea about their interests.
Catering their birthday gift to suit their personality is a double win.
We’ve compiled a list of gifts for all of the different people you may be shopping for, while also keeping your budget in mind!
For the book lover:
You know your friend likes books, but you’re not sure which ones they’ve read, haven’t read, etc. Below are some links these friends might enjoy, from a funny t-shirt to cute personalized items expressing their love of literature.
- “I closed my book to be here” T-shirt
- Personalized folded book art
- Reading list bookmark
For the coffee snob:
Your pal drinks coffee from sunup to sun down, has their favorite blend, and more travel mugs than should be legal.
Here are some gifts that are bound to perk up their day. (See what we did there?)
- Five-coffee sampler box
- Electric milk frother
- “If you can read this, bring me coffee” socks

With these gifts, you’re sure to impress your friends. They’ll love that you took the time to handpick something that truly embodies the things that interest them (don’t tell them we helped you.
