There are “Green is Good” gift exchanges, “Paris-themed” gift exchanges, gift exchanges based on popular television shows and more. If you’ve found yourself in the middle of a “Gifts that Begin with the Letter H” exchange, this list has you covered.

A Classic Toy for Every Child: Hobby Horse by Linzy
There’s nothing quite like a hobby horse to remind you of childhood, so if you have a little one in your life who doesn’t yet have one, this would be a great gift. There are four options from which to choose – a light brown horse, a dark brown horse, a purple unicorn or a pink unicorn.
The horses come on an adjustable telescopic stick that can accommodate three different sizes, so the child can use it even as she grows. The horse also makes neighing and galloping sounds when its ear is pushed.

For the True Crime Buff: Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders
Who said gifts had to be sweet, sentimental or heartwarming? That’s not the kind of gift everyone appreciates. If you have a friend who prefers Stephen King to Nicholas Sparks or who would prefer a season of Mindhunter over a nice smelling candle from Bath and Body Works, this could be just the book for her.
If true crime is what really gets your friend’s attention, pick her up this bestselling account of the life, crimes and trial of Charles Manson.
It’s almost 700 pages of grueling detail about Manson’s disturbed childhood, his time spent in and out of incarceration and the story behind how he cultivated his “family” and convinced them to commit the most unimaginable crimes.

Hot Hands are pretty much a winter staple for anyone who spends time outdoors in the cooler months. They’re the perfect gift for hunters, hikers, campers, climbers, backpackers, birdwatchers and more. Individually, they’re fairly inexpensive, but a true outdoorsman can never have too many Hot Hands packets, so if a couple of individual packs seem too cheap to you, get your friend an entire case! They’ll definitely be used.
They’re odorless and disposable, and they’ll provide him with a steady source of natural, long-lasting heat. They’re also safe, so you don’t have to worry about him suffering from chemical burns or worse while using them.
