Instead of reducing complex human beings to ridiculous gender stereotypes (women like frilly pink makeup with diamonds, men like computerized power tools with boobs), why not think about the individual to whom you're giving the gift? What do they like? What are their interests? What really matters to them?

Look, I know that it's extremely important to a lot of people that they buy the perfect Christmas gift for everybody on their gift list. (Incidentally, I find the idea of compulsory gifts somewhat ridiculous—yes, even when I'm the one receiving them—but that's a whole other rant.) And I know that the task can be rather frustrating. But those articles that list gift suggestions for people based on whether they're women or men are...well, quite frankly, they're getting a little tiresome.
