Read on for a list of gifts for your impossible-to-buy-for list.

Wearable Gifts

Perfect For: Your best friend who collects funny bumper stickers, can pull off a hat with confidence, and sends you temporary tattoos on your birthday.

Wearable Gifts: Our Picks

A t-shirt proclaiming her love for noodles in a cool font; a brass necklace in the shape of a pretzel; or a shirt that reads “Thyme To Turnip the Beet” -- because eating your vegetables is the new black.

DIY Gifts

Perfect For: Your college roommates who can light a fire in five minutes flat, listen to Car Talk, and brew their own beer.

DIY Gifts: Our Picks

A kit to make their own bitters; a hot sauce making set so they can bottle their own blend; or a Pullman loaf bundle -- complete with yeast, flour, and a pan -- because nothing is as satisfyingly hands-on as baking your own bread.

Unique Gifts

Perfect For: Your boss who can rattle off the Michelin-starred restaurants in any city, went deep-sea fishing on his last vacation, and has a weakness for a very good steak.

Unique Gifts: Our Picks

A monthly subscription of letters and recipes from notable chefs; a smart digital thermometer that connects to his iPhone, because it’s a fun party trick to show off; or a pair of hand-crafted oyster and clam knives nestled in a butter-soft leather wrap.

Handmade Gifts

Perfect For: Your cousin whose kitchen looks like a page from an Anthropologie catalog, knits you a scarf every Christmas, and makes a perfect rum punch.

Handmade Gifts: Our Picks

A stunningly cool handblown decanter that she doesn’t need but secretly wants; a set of linen bowl covers to use instead of plastic wrap; or blue-tinged Moroccan tumblers to brighten up the breakfast table.
