It depends on who the person is as an individual that you are trying to get something for. Do you know the person well? What are their likes, dislikes, and interests? Do they have a hobby or job you know something about? For example, if the person is an artist, you might purchase some supplies according to the medium in which they work. Are they the type of person who would rather have a diamond necklace, some golf clubs, or a potholder you made - simply because you made it? How sentimental are they? I don't think there is just one overall best Christmas gift. There are items which may be very popular right now. Any salesperson could help you with this. Personally, I know I appreciate something a person has spent time thinking about or even making for me. Otherwise, with no knowledge of the person, I vote gift card. Most retailers have gift cards, even the restaurants. And if all else fails, as a last resort, give 'em cash.
Something that reflects both of your values. It is like giving something of yourself. Besides books, I like to receive handcrafted items, except glass coasters. Something that I can value for years to come.
I believe people really want time with their people. I have asked my friends and family if we could make memmories this year instead of exchanging stuff.
Giving gift vouchers is a great idea - then they'll choose their own gift and you can be sure they'll be happy with it!
Vouchers can be from book stores or from a whole range of stores - you can choose the store that you think they'll most like, but then they're free to choose their own gift. And you don't have to worry that you might have made a mistake. Usually an attractive card goes along with the voucher.
