The holidays may look different this year, but whether you're celebrating in person or virtually they're still a time to exchange gifts that can inspire and uplift.

But if you're scratching your head trying to come up with an original gift idea, you're not alone. That's why we're letting you in on what Highsnobiety's staffers are exchanging during our Secret Santa this year to serve as inspiration.

Our gifts range from books to home decor to premium liquors and more, and work for everyone from your colleagues to your bffs. Read on for the full list.

"I would give this as a gift because it will actually be appreciated and used by anyone for the most part. It can be used at home and at your desk. It's also a great way to develop new, chic habits, like always having something that smells nice by your area. I suggest going somewhere like Bergdorf and looking for the cheapest thing – trust me, it will still be nicer than anything you'd find trying to stay within a certain price range. You'll be pleasantly surprised."

MoMASelf-Watering Wet Pots
Buy at MoMA Design Store

It’s been so fun to get a peek at my coworkers' WFH spaces over the past few months, and I’ve noticed that so many of them have been trying to grow their houseplant collections. I think these Self-Watering Wet Pots would make a great gift for anyone who is trying to develop their green thumb and may be struggling with getting the watering right for their new plant babies. They’ll help your plants absorb just the right amount of water so they can thrive, bring you joy, and continue to impress your coworkers in the background of your Zoom calls.

Tequila AviónReserva 44
Buy at Tequila Avión

Fun fact: some of our staffers organized cocktail parties via Zoom during quarantine that were fun and uplifting. It seems fitting to gift them a premium beverage, like Tequila Avión's Reserva 44. It combines fruity flavors with extra añejo for a bold taste, great for celebrating in person or virtually.

Even if you aren’t as enthusiastic about midcentury, post-war British painting as the card-carrying art-history-degree-holders among us, this compendium is a godsend for any and all creatives. Bacon’s self-analysis of art is moving and incredibly inspiring.

Hudson WilderLotta White Jade Coffee/Tea Cup
Buy at Hudson Wilder

The perfect WFH coffee cup from Hudson Wilder. I actually gifted a set to my friend recently and she loved it! Highsnobiety is also not going back into the office til... TBD, so this is the perfect gift – super chic yet affordable, so you can buy a few and have some fun mix-match sets (like this one)!

"It’s safe to say 2020 is the year we’ve spent the most time at home, ever. If you’re like me and countless other work-from-homebodies, you’ve probably done some redecorating and picked up a plant or two, or ten. Plants are one of the easiest ways to spruce up a space, and a pothos is the perfect specimen for beginners and seasoned growers alike. They’re one of the most maintenance-free species and can be easily propagated once the fast-growing vines start trailing. It’s the gift that keeps on giving."
