Okay, this one may not be a good holiday gift (or maybe it is; you do you), but right now Amazon has the Vornado 630 Mid-Size Whole Room Air Circulator Fan on sale right now for $40 (its lowest price ever).
If you’re unfamiliar with Vornado, they used to call them the “ceiling fan on the floor,” because it doesn’t just blow air, it really does circulate it. Fun fact: When these fans first came out (or at least when they first started showing up in stores in the US, anyway), I was 17 and working in a department store. We used to plug a Vornado in right in front of the display of boxes, tip it straight up, and then set a beach ball above it to show how the vortex of air could hold it steady above the fan. It really does cool an entire room (and the beach ball thing is a neat party trip).
I know you’re probably freezing right now (I mean, I am), but if you need a good fan when it gets warm again, this would be an excellent choice.
