Everyone knows the awkwardness of shopping for someone you don't know that well.  What do they like?  What should I get?  What does my gift say about me as a human?  What does my gift say about them as a human?  These problems are magnified tenfold if this person that you don't even know that well is a kid.  So for all you hesitant gift-getters out there, we present our go-to list of classic and timeless gifts for even the most difficult giftee.
