Every time I ask on Instagram what type of gift suggestions you need, I am most frequently asked for gifts that could work for anyone. Aka gifts that are kindaaa generic, but still thoughtful. You know, for your kid’s teacher, your boss, your in-laws, etc. I spent a bit of time researching and came up with this list of affordable thoughtful gifts that will work for literally everyone on your list!
Thoughtful Gifts for Your Boss, Teachers, In-Laws… Literally Anyone!
Because these aren’t gift ideas for your bestie, I decided to keep the ideas on the more affordable side. I just can’t imagine spending up to $100 for my old boss!
