Can't find it here? Then it's probably not worth having.
Can't find it here? Then it's probably not worth having.

Looking for a gift for a loved one, a workmate, or even someone you secretly hate but are obliged to buy something for? Then let us help you. Our Cult Of Mac Holiday Gift Guide is running throughout November and December, thrice weekly with farm-fresh updates every time.

Looking for something in particular? Here’s the full rundown:

Gifts For Him

Manly murse? Childish toys? Awesome, stylish and extravagant gifts that will make him love you forever? They’re all here.

Gifts For Her

Whether your gal is nerd, a mom or just really, really fat, you’ll find something for her here.

Gifts For Kids

Those ungrateful brats will hate pretty much anything you buy for them, so why make the effort? Just click this link, throw a dart at the screen and order the resulting item from Amazon. You’re welcome.

Gifts For Mac Lovers

Even in 2012, some people still use Macs (I know, right?). Find the perfect present for the luddite in your life right here.

Gifts For iPad Lovers

iPad or iPad mini — If your lucky giftee has any kind of Apple tablet (and let’s face it, what other kind of tablet is there?) then this is where to find them the perfect case/stylus/keyboard/speaker.

Gifts For iPhone Lovers

Who doesn’t have an iPhone these days? Losers, that’s who. And you don’t know any losers, do you? No. Which is why you’ll find everything you need to start and finish your holiday shopping right here.

Gifts Under $100

For $100, you can please even the most fickle of friends and family. We have bags, hideous retro “style” rotary phone docks and even a… you’ll have to read it to find out.

Gifts Under $50

Under $50 needn’t mean “under loved.” Sure, we snuck some crap in here and there (you don’t want to spend too much on the boss, after all), but who wouldn’t want a design-your-own iPhone case. Anyone? Anyone? Hello?

Gifts Under $30

I was shooting for “Gifts Under $25,” but pretty much everything sucked. If $25 is all you have, then just send a gift card (or text “I don’t care about you” on December 26th — it’s the same thing). If you can stretch to a measly $5 more, then we can talk.

Stocking Stuffers

This is the place to find an oddity to fill a gift-shaped gap. Robot-knitted iPhone case? Check. Overpriced block of paper? Check. Pressure-sensitive stylus that even works with an old iPad 1? Check, check, check! It’s all here.
