(CNN) —  

Your family may be the people who you know best, but that often means they can also be some of the toughest ones to buy meaningful (or at the very least, useful) gifts for around the holidays. The editors here at Underscored asked our own family members about what’s on their wish lists — so if you’re stuck on gifts to give your loved ones, perhaps you’ll find some inspiration from the products our parents, grandparents, siblings and others are hoping to find under the tree this year!

“You may have seen SinkShrooms on TV and they are fantastic. There are even stainless steel ones that wash easily and don’t get as gross as the silicone ones. The kitchen ones are the best though! The holes in the top and sides allow the water to filter through and still catch any food debris with easy clean up. Throw these in with other kitchen accessories and some cookies and ta da!” —Kirsten, sister of Kai Burkhardt, editorial coordinator

“I’d like a Dyson handheld vacuum cleaner because I’ve recently had two hip replacements and I have two giant staircases in my home. It’ll make it much easier for me to clean pet hair and dust on the steps, and it’s known to be a really powerful device.” —Emily, mom of Emmy Favilla, deputy editor

“If you ask anyone who knows me, they wouldn’t describe me as a super health-conscious gal. But I’ve started taking steps to change that by incorporating more smoothies into my diet. Yes, the Vitamix 7500 Blender is a tad pricey upfront but it will pay for itself over time. If my goal falls through like my New Year’s resolutions do… I can always use it to make margaritas.” —Michele, mom of Delaney Strunk, programming editor
