Gift-giving anxiety (n)
The paralyzing unease of trying to buy the perfect gift for everyone in your life.

If you suffer from gift-giving anxiety, you’re not alone. Millions of people all over the world are asking themselves these questions:

How do I know the appropriate amount of money to spend? How do I know this person doesn’t already have this item? Is this even something they would want?

Worry not, we created this holiday gift guide to assuage any anxiety you might have by finding the perfect gift (sunglasses, duh!) for every person in your life.

The person whose style is hard to pin down.

Sometimes they’re sporty, sometimes they’re edgy. The perfect gift is a pair of versatile Calvin Klein CK19149S sunglasses that can be both.
