Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A medium-sized leather tote that's the perfect everyday bag — you can fill it with so much and not feel like you're lugging around a 50-pound weight.


    Promising review: "This is a great bag! I got the saddle color, and it looks fantastic. I love that I can see down to the bottom clearly in this bag. I like how it is gradually getting that aged look. It's a must-have bag! I’m so glad I bought this." —Norma44

    Price: $118.50 (available in eight colors)

    2. A wool quarter zip for your dad who says he "doesn't need anything" but also hasn't stepped foot in a store to buy new clothing in forever. This is a classic he'll wear for years.


    Promising review: "This sweater is great! I gave it to my dad as a Christmas present, and he's barely taken it off since. Not too thick, not too thin, just right. I would recommend this sweater to anyone looking for a go-to quarter zip." — joebothehobo

    Price: $85 (available in sizes XS-4X and in eight colors)

    3. A deluxe turntable to ~turn~ things around a little and take music for a ~spin~ in a different yet nostalgic way.


    Promising review: "This was a Christmas gift for my dad, but the whole family enjoyed it! It's easy to use right out of the box. Slightly smaller than I expected but great for storing. It looks beautiful on the shelf. Easy all-in-one for playing. I’m sure there are nicer speakers out there but these worked great." —hharrison101

    Price: $69.95 (available in four colors)

    4. A luxurious plush fleece robe that *may* make them late for work because they'll be way too cozy to feel like putting on real clothes.


    Promising review: "This robe holds to the Ugg name. It is the snuggliest thing I've ever worn. The arms are tailored for a perfect width and length, similar to the model pictured. I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs, and a size small is a perfect fit, though the medium would work fine too. The pockets are deep and situated at a slant, so it's a comfortable transition too. Sounds silly, but that little difference is noted each time I put it on. I love this robe!" —dpiatchuk

    Price: $130 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors) or a similar style for men for $69.50 (available in sizes M-XXL and in black, grey, and navy)

    5. A backpack designed with a water-resistant fabric, so if it randomly starts downpouring out of nowhere, they won't have to worry that all the electronics inside their bag are about to get ruined.


    Promising review: "This backpack is made out of extremely durable material. It’s great for daily college use or even when hiking etc. Its design allows it to be used in an extremely vast array of settings! My favorite thing about it is that it’s water and sand-proof! So when I’m walking in rain, I do not have to worry about my laptop or important documents inside getting wet! I’ve had mine for about 2 years, and I still love it deeply! It's a must buy!!!" — jesusurbano

    Price: $80 (available in 27 colors)

    6. A plush blanket that will elicit a sincere thank-you immediately after the giftee opens it and gives it a squeeze.


    The blanket is 50" x 60" with 4" fringe and made of 100% polyester. It can be machine-washed and tumbled-dried.

    Promising review: "I got this blanket as a gift in rust. The blanket is super soft and warm, and the color is gorgeous. It looks lovely with my fall décor. I loved the throw so much that I purchased it as a gift for a friend. The gift was in the color 'teal dusty,' which is also gorgeous. It's even more beautiful in person. This is a perfect gift to give or receive!" —AllThingsLimeGreen

    Price: $39.50 (available in 13 colors)

    7. A self-watering pot for anyone who wants *so badly* to be a plant parent, but can't even seem to keep a succulent alive. All they have to do is fill the glass bowl with water, put the terracotta planter inside, and the plant will take water when it needs it. How handy is that?


    Price: $34+ (available in sizes extra small and small)

    8. A pair or riding boots more than 3,000 people have reviewed and loved, so you know they'll be a hit.


    Promising review: "These boots are great boots! They're very stylish and a beautiful color. I typically have a difficult time finding the right boots with shorter legs and wide calves. These boots fit me perfect. I’ve already had many compliments on them!" —BJWest

    Price: $149.90 (available in sizes 4-13 and in black and brown)

    9. A nice cashmere turtleneck sweater – you might as well add two to your cart, because when you feel one of 'em, you're going to be glad that you can keep it for yourself.


    Promising review: "I've been looking for a simple, affordable cashmere turtleneck in a variety of colors. I need a sweater that isn't too fitted. This one is perfect. I love everything about it. I purchased the sweater in black, red, grey, blue, and ivory. I can't wait to wear them." —KaelinB

    Price: $98 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors)

    10. A Dagne Dover duffle bag made out of neoprene and mesh for a super soft bag they'll be able to fit SO much stuff in that they'll never fly without it again.

    Dagne Dover / Via

    I've been using the medium-sized duffle bag for the past couple of months now, and let me tell you, I wish I would have bought it years ago. The fabric feels and looks so nice. Plus, you can really fit so much inside. Seriously, I've fit my laptop, iPad, a book, all my toiletries, a crossbody purse, wallet, snacks, and more inside and have still been able to close it. And my favorite part: there's a really convenient small pocket on the outside that fits your phone perfectly. This means I never have to spend a good five minutes searching through all that stuff in the bag to find my phone somewhere at the bottom. I can just grab it and show the TSA agent my ticket in seconds. I've been telling all my friends and family about it and now I know what's one of the top things on their list this year.

    Price: $155 (available in seven colors)

    11. A three-pack of socks – kids won't have to ~force~ a smile when they realize they've gotten *these* socks as a gift...because these are actually super cool and fun.

So far I have washed it once, and it has stayed fully intact. This case is fantastic. I would recommend this for anybody who hates sleep lines. I wake up looking much better and my skin is soft. I’m thinking about giving these to my family for Christmas." —LakeviewChicago

    Price: $85+ (available in queen and king sizes and in 10 colors)

    13. A pair of butter crew socks to keep on hand for the person you didn't know was going to buy a gift for you (and if you don't end up gifting them, you'll just want to keep them for yourself!).


    Promising review: "I LOVE these socks. They are just so cozy and warm. I wear them every night in bed. They're the perfect cure for my cold feet. I do recommend to avoid throwing them in the dryer or just dry them on the fluff cycle. It will keep them cozy. I just bought three more pairs: two for my daughters and one for me!" —Cindy914

    Price: $12 a pair, or three pairs for $30 (available in one size that fits shoe sizes 6-10 and in 10 colors)

    Price: $45

    15. A packable puffer coat with a cinched waist to keep them warm all winter long without feeling like a marshmallow.


    Promising review: "I could not love this coat more!! I live in New Hampshire and needed something that would be warm, but I am so tired of bulky coats and how they turn me into a marshmallow every winter. I have gotten endless compliments on this coat and I cannot recommend it more. The cinched waist is incredibly flattering, especially in the back. I didn't realize there was actually a hood zipped up in the back but that was a nice surprise! It's of excellent quality and I look forward to many winters with it!" —Allie21

    Price: $99.90 (originally $159; available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors) or a similar men's style for $225 (available in sizes S-XXL and in green and black)

    16. A splurgeworthy Dyson Supersonic hair dryer (with high-velocity airflow to dry hair faster and prevent heat damage) so they can have luscious locks all the time.

    Dyson Hair / Via

    Promising review: "I bought this last year for Christmas, so I have been using it for 11 months. It's lightweight, powerful, and it dries my hair in half the time. It takes less than ten minutes. The motor is in the handle, so it is easy to maneuver and use. I take it on trips when I travel. It's that good." —LDK3

    Price: $399 (available in black, fuchsia, and silver)

    This is one of our picks for best high-end hair dryer on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    This is recommended for ages 18 months up to 60 lbs.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have purchased for my child. He was a late bloomer in crawling and walking, but he was riding his Strider at 2.5 and his pedal bike at 3.5! The bike is lightweight and very adjustable. He is so proud of himself. We now use both bikes depending on the type of trip we are taking. The Strider is still better for longer and more technical rides." —cmalloy

    Price: $119.99 (available in red and pink)

    18. A fleece pullover they'll want to put on the second they get home for the day after ripping off whatever inadequate clothing they were wearing – this will help them feel oh-so-cozy and warm.


    Promising review: "I was looking at this online for a long time before I purchased it. I was very happy when this pullover arrived because it is everything I was looking for. It's super soft, nicely warm, and very pretty on. It's a bit oversized but not so much that you look like a human hanger. I'm looking forward to wearing this throughout the winter." — Sportygrl

    Price: $49.90 (available in sizes XXS-L and in grey, yellow, and white)

    19. A decanter and whiskey glasses set for the gracious host who keeps inviting you back to their Christmas party year after year, even if you *do* keep forgetting the wine bottle on the kitchen table every year.


    Promising review: "This is a beautiful set. I gave it as a gift and it did not disappoint. A gorgeous addition to any bar or bar cart." — katelawyermomma

    Price: $60 (available in gold and copper)

    20. A lightweight and roomy quilted nylon tote the world traveler (or just neighborhood traveler) can put all their essentials in and feel super classy carrying around.


    Promising review: "I debated for a while between the medium and large tote to replace the bag I had been using for 10 years. I'm thrilled I went with the medium. It has room for everything, tons of secret pockets so it doesn't feel like a black hole where things disappear, and it comes with a little makeup bag! I agree that the straps do fall off, but it's not noticeable and doesn't take away from the overall love of this bag. I get so many compliments on it, and no matter how full it gets, it's still super lightweight. I absolutely love it!! I will for sure go back for the large one eventually, but for now, this is perfect for every day." —CarliRose

    Price: $225+ (available in 14 styles)

    21. A large acacia wood serving tray so breathtakingly beautiful, everyone will be asking them where they got you'll keep getting good gift-giving cred for years.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this tray. It can be used in so many ways. I have used it as a charcuterie board for entertaining, loaded with candles, as a minibar with all the mixers and bottles, loaded with magazines and books on my ottoman. The handles make it easy to move from one place to another with ease. It would make a great housewarming or wedding gift also filled with goodies. The color variation in the wood makes it more rustic and interesting to look at."—DDMDanielle

    Price: $69

    22. A pair of classic Ugg boots you can't go wrong with: They're just so soft and comfortable, and anyone will enjoy their warmth and coziness.

    These headphones come with a storage case, battery, airline adapter, USB cable, and audio cable for wired connection. They have a cushioned design and a built-in Google Assistant but are also compatible with Alexa.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my boyfriend for his birthday, and he hasn’t stopped using them since.

    Promising review: "I gifted three of these in 2017 for Christmas and was so impressed with the clarity of sound I got myself one after Christmas. The kids all love it. It is proving the test of time and is just as durable and dependable as the first day. The sound that it gives is great. I'm looking to get another to fill my large house with all its wonderful sound." —Nina

I stepped out of the shower at 12:15 pm and had beautiful, curled hair by 12:50 pm. Yep, what would have taken me an hour to an hour and a half with my normal hair dryer/curling iron, took about half that, and it was my first time using the device. Plus, all the other attachments allow you to switch up your look easily, so there's really no bad hair day ever again.

    Promising review: "I had my eye on this for a while and once I got some birthday money, I decided to go for it. Honestly, I’m mad I waited so long. This honestly changed my life. It sounds dramatic, but I used to spend so much time doing my hair (it’s thick, coarse, difficult to manage) and this has saved me so much time getting ready and always improved my hair. So many people give me compliments now, and it is because of this. Don’t waste time. You won’t regret it!"—sarahfab

    Price: $549
