Practical people are by far the hardest to shop for come the holiday season, and this year it's a bit more justified. As a result of so many of us spending more time than ever before at home, we unpractical people have noticed just how useless so many of the items we have lying around our homes are. So the last thing we want to do is gift more... well, stuff. 

Which leads all of us to the very reasonable question of: how do we successfully shop for sensible gifts this holiday season? You see, most of us associate the term 'practicall' with 'boring' and when we're looking to gift our loved ones something other than a blasé pair of socks, it requires more effort and consideration. And what's the solution?

Your goal is crystal clear: find useful items that the intended recipient is already relying heavily on and either refresh them or upgrade them.

Now, whether that is investing in a new mattress topper, a cordless vacuum, or non-stick frying pan is up to you; however, the options are endlessly versatile as are the price points. But, are you finding that you still need some additional assistance? Not a problem. 

We've rounded up seven of the most sensible gifts to give the most practical people in your life — continue scrolling to see what did (or didn't) make our list!
