We all have that one person on our list who is much harder to shop for than the rest. Although it would seem like it would be easy to shop for our parents and partners, they can actually present the toughest challenges. When I ask my dad what he wants for Christmas, he almost always tells me "Nothing," and my mom is not much better.

With support from our sponsor Kohl's, the TODAY Style Squad (Jill Martin, Bobbie Thomas and Liliana Vazquez) rounded up some great gift ideas for a partner, mom or dad who is particularly hard to shop for in the hopes of making things a bit easier.

When we release our 2018 gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But, prices change frequently (yay, deals!), so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.

Gifts for Your Partner

  • 1. Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker, $110 (usually $140), Kohl's

We are convinced that every kitchen needs an Instant Pot. This device is perfect for a partner who loves the kitchen, since it's a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker and warmer.

  • 2. Men's Croft & Barrow Henley & Plaid Flannel Lounge Pants Gift Set, $20 (usually $40), Kohl's

Men want to be cozy, too! Pajamas make a great gift because a lot of people don't buy nice ones for themselves.
