These Gender Neutral Gifts Are Perfect for Everyone [Gift Guide]

Written by

Preparing for Christmas can be a big deal, especially when it comes to gift-giving. Thankfully, if you have someone that's a little bit geeky or nerdy, it usually makes them easier to shop for. (We'd also argue that it's more fun too!) If the recipient loves superheroes, there are plenty of superhero gifts to order online, and this is similar for pretty much every other major fandom. Many of these items also make great gender-neutral gifts as well. We'll also throw in some other fun gift-giving ideas for people who are into other things, from sports to books, board games and more! You won't be stumped on what to give even your most difficult-to-shop-for relative or friend after browsing over this gender-neutral gift guide at!

"Cool" varies a lot depending on who you talk to, but we like to define cool gifts as items that would make any geek or nerd shriek with joy. (Shrieks of joy are a thing, and they're just as wonderful as squees or tears of joy.) There are a smattering of cool present ideas on that aren't gender-specific, board games included. Feel free to take these cool gift ideas and run with them—if your giftee likes to host a board game night, find some cool board games for adults! You can find strategy board games, Disney board games, classic board games with a nerdy twist, and even some party games for the more casual board gamer. Even if you don't know who your gift will end up with, board games make great unisex gifts at Christmas gift swaps and work parties.

Perhaps you have that one person on your Christmas shopping list who doesn't want anything unless they can use it multiple times in a year. (Let's face it: getting an ornament for Christmas, unless it's super awesome, can sometimes be a downer as you have to immediately toss it into storage until the next holiday season.) Well, fleece throws and blankets are extremely practical gifts that are great no matter who you're giving them to! The best part about all of these unisex Christmas gift ideas is that they cover a wide variety of fandoms, so it'll be hard not to find something your giftee will love. Even if you don't know who your gift is going to, in the cases of office parties and white elephant exchanges, a novelty throw like this is bound to make someone jealous!

No Christmas gift blends form and function quite as well as the pop culture coffee mug. Be a little goofy and give them the gift of a job as a Jurassic Park ranger, or show them how much you care with a sweet surprise from Mister Rogers. Of course, should you know that they're a huge fan of Star Wars, a Star Wars coffee mug will surely be appreciated! You can easily expand on this unisex gift idea with some instant hot chocolate, tea, or coffee to sip on as a winter treat. What we're saying is that if you're looking for white elephant gifts under $25, you can't go wrong with any of these products!

Still, fans of these franchises come in all types, so they're perfectly suited as gender-neutral gift ideas.
