An Exclusive List of the 15 Most Practical And Useful Christmas Gifts This Year

What constitutes as “Useful Christmas Gifts” for you? I bet it’s a present that is very practical—talking about a type of gift that could be used daily or on special occasions. Yes, a basic phone charger may be practical for a gift; however, the possibility of your receiver not having a phone charger is slim.

Getting a useful Christmas gift also goes for someone you don’t know very well or someone who often gives the “Nothing” answer when asked what they’ll want.
