PhotoThe countdown to Christmas is officially on -- and if you’re reading this, chances are you still have a few gifts left to buy.

If you’re stumped on what to get a particular member of the family, check out the ideas below. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, you can use ConsumerAffairs’ product reviews to help you make the best product choice possible in terms of both price and quality.

For mom

For yogis, a new yoga mat could make a home run gift. If you’re willing to splurge, we recommend the Jade Harmony Professional Yoga Mat. For the biggest bang for your buck, check out the Aurorae Premium Classic Yoga Mat.

Other gift ideas for mom include a cozy new bathrobe (see our top picks here), a digital photo frame for displaying those priceless holiday memories, or a new coffee maker.

For dad

A stylish pair of over-ear headphones could make a nice gift for music lovers or dads who travel frequently. For dads who are dedicated to capturing family memories, a digital camera or camcorder could be a perfect holiday gift.

Other gift ideas for dad include heated gloves, a bluetooth speaker, or a smartwatch.

For teens

Got a teen who loves their fidget spinner? A smooth-rolling magnetic fidget toy may be the perfect upgrade (especially in light of research showing some fidget spinners may contain high levels of lead).

For drone enthusiasts, ConsumerAffairs has ranked the Phantom 4 Professional Quadcopter as the best of the best.

For kids

For younger members of the family, a few toys have earned spots on many hot holiday toy lists. One such toy is Fingerlings (toy animals that wrap around your child's finger and respond to noise, touch, and motion).

Another toy kids are clamoring for this year is the FurReal Friends Roarin’ Ivory, the Playful Tiger Pet from Hasbro.

For the family pet

Has your pup been sporting the same collar for years? If so, this holiday season may be the perfect time for an upgrade.

We recommend the Soft Touch Luxury Real Leather Padded Collar or the Coastal Pet Latigo Leather Collar. For cats, check out our recommendations for the best cat houses, cat beds, and automatic cat feeders.
