You love your friends like they are members of your family. You probably actually spend more time with them than you do with your family. But somehow, that doesnt make shopping for them any easier. Fear not: ourgift guideis here to help. With ideas for the philanthropists, couch potatoes, outdoors enthusiasts and party animals in your group, your shopping just got a little easier.

Here are five gift ideas to give your friends, perfect for any occasion:

This game will have you cringing at the politically incorrect, blushing at dirty jokes, and laughing so hard you can barely breathe. You can make this game as despicable or as innocent as you like- it all depends on the players. As the manufacturers say, Cards Against Humanity is aparty gamefor horrible people. It is a game in which you succeed by coming up with the funniest answer and getting creative with the cards you were given. Cards Against Humanity is hilarious and wonderful, but maybe dont give it to anyone who is too sensitive or easily offended. This is not the game for them.

Do you friends already own Cards Against Humanity? Then give them the gift of even more depraved fun with theCards Against Humanity Expansion Packs.

Giving your friends aboxed set of awesome moviesis a great way to inspire them to host movie nights for your group. Theyve probably seen a lot of the current movies that are out, so add some variety to their nightly entertainment and give themThe Mel Brooks Collection. This set features eight of Mel Brooks classic comedies and spoofs including:Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Silent Movie, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, To Be or Not to Be, History of the World: Part 1, The Twelve Chairs, andHigh Anxiety. It has some movies they have most likely seen (and if they havent, then they definitely need this box set), and others that are more obscure, making this set a fun experience for everyone.

Other classic Mel Brooks films not included on this set that you may also want to consider adding are:SpaceballsThe Producers, andDracula: Dead and Loving It.

Make movie night more complete by giving your friends a funbox of movie snacks.

One of the greatest pleasures of friendship is sharing abottle of wineand just spending time together. And for many of us, that time together is even better when it is spent outdoors. So give your friends the gift of outdoors drinking with the Outdoor Vino Adventure Mixed Three Pack. This wine is packaged in durable, recyclable, BPA-free plastic bottles that weigh only 1/6 the weight of a standard wine bottle. Featuring red wines from the Apple Gate region of Oregon and the Columbia Valley region of Washington and white wines from the Willamette and Rogue Valleys, this set has three varietals that are at once fruity, bold, and complex. They are the perfect complement to a day of adventuring and are best consumed by a campfire or at a picnic table.

Bocce ball has been a popular sport in Europe since ancient times (literallythe first documented bocce ball game dates back to 5200 BCE), but has only somewhat recently began to grow in popularity in the United States. Its easy to see why- this game is fun, simple to learn and requires very little physical activity. Plus it will give your friends a reason to get outdoors. Whether played just for fun or as a competition (my family likes to have a buy-in and play tournament style), this is a game everyone can enjoy. Set comes with eight bocce balls, one pallino (the target ball), and a heavy-duty carrying bag.

Does your friend seem to already own everything? Then doing a charitable donation in their name is a great way to go. These kits from Gift Republic allow the recipient to choose an endangered species of monkeys or apes to adopt for 12 months, and the proceeds benefit The Peoples Trust for Endangered Species, a registered charity which helps to protect the natural habitat of monkeys and apes under threat. Your friend will then receive a personalized supporter certificate and a color photograph of a member of their chosen species, as well as conservation updates from the charity. Adoption kits are also available for big cats, meerkats and sea turtles.

Price: $22.62-$34.22, depending on animal selected.
