Ten Gifts for That Person You Barely Know

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Racked's holiday gift guide, for all of those people in your life that are beyond hard to shop for: step-siblings, co-workers, your wacky dad, and your boyfriend's mom (because you seriously cannot give her another scarf). Check back weekly for gift ideas covering all of those unconventional but loveable characters who make your holiday season... unique.

This week, we've rounded up ten agreeable gifts for the kids, teens, and peers that you know virtually nothing about but are semi-obligated to give a gift, such as your brand new step-sibling, your boyfriend's cousin, or your study abroad host. Click through the gallery above for gift ideas from the likes of Erica Weiner, C. Wonder, The MoMA Store, and more.—Nicola Fumo
