    64 Of The Best Gifts Under $100 To Give In 2020

    A silk pillowcase, custom pet pillows, faux fur slippers, a wine aerator, and *so* many other amazing treats for everyone on your list this year.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!)

    1. An acrylic monogrammed necklace guaranteed to be an instant hit, because it's a personalized gift the recipient can wear all the time.

    Three different sized monograms in circles in brown, beige, and white

    Before adding to your cart, you can select the chain metal, length, monogram size, acrylic color and then enter the left, center, and right letter to create the custom monogram necklace.

    Just be sure to order by Nov. 12 for delivery by Dec. 10 and Nov. 25 for delivery by Dec 23.

    Get it from Baublebar for $58 (available in two chain finishes, two chain lengths, four pendant sizes, and 12 colors).

    2. An Instant Pot for sure to bring joy to the recipient when they realize that making dinner will be SO much easier from now on.

    The Insta Pot with silver outside and black base and handles with an interface on the front

    It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all rolled into one nifty appliance. Plus, it comes with the stamp of approval from more than 93,000 5-star reviews (!!!!). Check out our full review of the Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "I am a guy not too fond of cooking and cleaning up. I like working out and eating clean. I bought the 6-quart last weekend, and I can say my life is now on a different trajectory because of this product. Cooking and cleaning up is now a breeze. It cooks amazing foods. (I suggest getting a recipe book.) I can cook in large batches for the whole week without too much fuss. The best part is cleaning up. Due to the deep bowl, it doesn't splatter everywhere when cooking. I use it to sauté a lot. It has replaced my electric stove and even my microwave. I just ordered the nonstick bowl for it as the food seems to stick to the stainless-steel bowl when searing or sautéing. It's an amazing product." —TK

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in four sizes and four styles).

    3. A portable piano that may just be the ~key~ to a great gift because it can be rolled and unrolled and played anywhere (at home, grandma and grandpa's house, and even in the car). Plus, there's a headphone jack, so the parents won't have to hear their child's "amazing" new skill all the time.

    The Grommet

    The piano also comes pre-set with multiple keyboard tones and demo songs. The built-in speaker has auxiliary capabilities and volume, but it can also be used with headphones or even an external speaker system (so they can put on a true show). There's also record, playback, echo, and sustain features. The beginner model includes 49 standard piano keys and the studio model includes 61 standard piano keys. It can be powered by USB cord (included), four AAA batteries (not included), or a rechargeable battery (included with the Studio model). It is recommended for ages six and up.

    Promising review: "Our brilliant niece is a very busy girl. She's always in motion. This flexible piano goes where she goes. It's perfect for her AND for her parents." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99 or $50.99 (for the rainbow version) or The Grommet for $59.95+ (available in two models and two colors).

    4. A Revlon One-Stop Hair Dryer & Volumizer designed to be the gift that keeps on giving — great hair for 365 days a year., Amazon

    This brush has hype with more than 95,000 (!!!) 5-star reviews, and it really does live up to it. The oval brush design smooths the hair and the round edges create volume — leaving you with a salon-worthy blowout at home. It also has two heat and speed settings and a cool option.

    Promising review: "I love this hair dryer!! I bought it because I broke my shoulder and only have the use of one arm. Before my shoulder was broken, I used a very expensive hairdryer and the best brushes. This hair dryer works better than all of my high-end products. I'll never go back. The brush is big and I was concerned that it would be too much for my short hair. It will work great on any length of hair. The bristles grab even the shortest hair and dry it smooth and soft. My hair is naturally curly and before trying this dryer, I'd dry my hair, straighten it and then use hot rollers. I am now achieving the same results with the Revlon dryer. I haven't written a review on a product in years but needed to share my experience with this dryer. It's worth every penny!" —M J

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99+ (available in five colors).

    5. A box filled with farm-fresh flowers with a bit of a DIY aspect, as the recipient can use their creativity to build their own arrangement of beautiful blooms.

    Postal Petals

    Postal Petals works directly with farmers to handpick fresh stems that are shipped out within 36 hours of harvest. This small Black woman-owned business ships to all 48 states (and parts of Alaska, but sadly not Hawaii right now). The Beanie Box is the smallest size, but you get six to eight bundles of flowers in the box. With this, you can make either one large or two medium arrangements. You can select your theme of flowers from a selection of six or just have it be a surprise. Plus, check out to see what's in bloom right now and the featured flowers in the box currently.

    Promising review: "I had never received flowers by mail, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I received my Beanie Box on time, and I could not believe how many flowers I received for the price that I paid. I was able to make several full arrangements. The flowers were beautiful and smelled AMAZING. I’ll definitely order again!" —Tennille Wright

    Get the Beanie Box from Postal Petals for $89 (available in seven styles).

    6. A Steamboat Willie Lego set bound to bring a smile to the recipients face twice — once when they open the box and then again when they put it together and realize it has great details and moving parts that make this gift go the ~extra mile~.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    The set is recommended for ages 10+, but it really can be complete by kids and adults alike. And I should know because my mom and I put it together back in April. My mom is a huge Lego fan, and we're both Disney fans, and we really enjoyed this set. It was pretty easy to put together — you just have to make sure that you're following the directions and using the correct pieces because some of them look very similar. The coolest part of this set is the fact that it has moving pieces. Both the steam pipes and the paddlewheels move when you push the boat along a flat surface. Plus, it has an adjustable crane, and the Steamboat Willie details are amazing. It's a great set for Disney and Lego fans alike and would make a perfect gift.

    Promising review: "So I have a nephew who LOVES legos. When he first saw this in a catalog, he was so excited and wanted it so badly. Let me tell you, it's expensive. But the joy he had receiving it was totally worth it. The packaging had some dents in it, but they were small and that was just the box. No complaints here!" —Mel

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    7. A soft sided carry-on suitcase built specifically to be spacious enough to fit your essentials while still being about to fit under a plane seat or without taking up the whole trunk of a car. Plus, it has two wheels *and* a trolly sleeve so they'll never have to weigh down their shoulder to carry it. Oh, the luxury!


    Promising review: "This bag has definitely exceeded my expectations. It’s far more spacious than the photos do justice and it’s super convenient to slip it over the handle of my suitcase to roll as one. Also, as a person that travels frequently and hates to check bags, this has solved that problem for me on longer trips because every airline allows you one carry-on (suitcase) and one personal item (which used to be a book bag for me and I’ve now replaced it with this Calpak)! I can fit my dopp kit, a pair of shoes, one outfit, my laptop(!!), and other miscellaneous items. It’s been an unexpected game changer for my travels when I bought it only expecting to be used once!" —TAYLORK

    Get it from Nordstrom Rack for $69.97 (originally $98; available in three colors).

    8. A Sunday Riley Wake Up With Me brightening morning routine kit filled with cult-favorite products sure to ~refresh~ the recipient's morning skin routine and leave them feeling and looking great.

    -Auto Correct Brightening & Depuffing Eye Contour Cream

    Get it from Nordstrom for $95 ($158 value).

    9. A framed llama print they'll have no ~prob-llama~ hanging on their wall because it will bring a touch more joy into their lives, even after this season of joy is done.

    The square print illustration of a llama with color patches of blue, green, yellow, and brown

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $84.99+ (available in three other sizes not under $100 and with a black or white frame).

    10. The Olive & June winter box giving me big "OMG, This is the best present ever" vibes...oh wait, that's just what you're going to hear when you give this as a gift.

    The silver box filled with nine nail polish bottles in different colors and all the assorted tools that are included in the box
    Olive & June / Via

    Olive & June is one of my personal favorite nail polish brands. (You can learn more about why in this review I did here.) And their winter collection really hit it out of the ballpark. This box comes with everything you need to complete the perfect mani at home plus some ah-mazing colors. The box includes:

    -Eight bottles of nail polish, ranging from hot pink, ruby, dark ruby, turquoise, emerald, navy, and silver and gold glitter.

    -Super glossy top coat

    -The Poppy — a polish bottle handle to help paint both hands perfectly.

    -Cuticle Serum

    -Polish Remover Pot

    -Clean-up Brush

    -Nail buffer

    -Clippers and a file

    Get the Winter Box from Olive & June for $94.

    11. A Little Tikes kitchen set by BuzzFeed's Tasty complete with an oven, fridge, stovetop, and lots of food accessories that just may ~beat~ out all the other gifts and take the crown as top gift. Plus, it will actually grow with the child, so they can really work on their cooking skills to one day be the next Top Chef (or just a good cook, either is totally fine).

    Little Tikes

    The kitchen can be configured to be low and wide (for younger children) and then converted into a thinner and higher countertop for preschoolers. It also comes with more than 40 pieces of play food and accessories and three play recipes based on Tasty videos. There's also a built-in smartphone holder, so kids can take a picture (or video) of their creations Tasty-style. You can also watch this Tasty video to see this play kitchen in action!

    Promising review: "My 18-month-old-daughter loves this kitchen and so do we! It will convert to a taller kitchen as she grows, which means we will get lots of use! I was shocked at the quality and how nice it was for the price, not to mention all the accessories it came with. My daughter loves making the pizza and cupcakes and pouring coffee with the coffee pot! I would say my only suggestion is the shelves in the fridge and oven aren’t level at all and everything just slides right off. It’s not that big of a deal but does frustrate her when she wants to use those and fill the fridge or oven. It's super cute and fun to play with though, and that’s what matters!" —amazonlover

    Get it from Amazon for $79.

    12. A Haus sampler kit you can either fill with their best-selling apéritif flavors or select your own four, based on the giftee's preferences. Either way, they'll get a selection of delicious drinks (made with natural ingredients) they can enjoy after a long day.

    Four small clear bottles filled with different-colored liquids in yellow, red, orange, and brown

    Each bottle is 200 ml and can make two to three drinks. The best-selling flavors are Citrus Flower, Rose Rosé, Bitter Clove, and Lemon Lavender. The apéritifs can be used on their own or with other add-ins, such as tonic, soda water, prosecco, etc. for a fun cocktail.

    Promising review: "I really enjoyed this sample kit. The packaging is lovey (I will definitely reuse the small glass bottles). I enjoyed all the flavors — citrus was my favorite. I think the clove flavor will be nice over ice during the cooler months. The rose, citrus, lavender flavors are nice on their own with ice and are a fun addition to prosecco. I really enjoy complex flavors, and these aperitifs are a wonderful way to mix things up." —ERICA R.

    Get the sampler kit from Haus for $40.

    13. A copper kettle so absolutely gorgeous you better watch out because Aladdin might swoop in and try and steal this from you before you give it as a gift. But it's not just for show — the gooseneck spout is ideal for brewing loose-leaf tea and pour-over coffee. We love a gift that is pretty *and* practical.

    World Market

    Promising review: "Aside from being absolutely beautiful, this is the quickest cup of delicious coffee I have ever made. It goes directly on the stove top. It's a great ritual each morning." —Jehan

    Get it from World Market for $34.99.

    14. And a collection of teas from around the world to pair perfectly with the kettle and give them something they can enjoy long after the holidays are over. When the days are short and cold, there's nothing like a delicious hot cup of tea to warm your spirit.

    The ten thin tubes of tea with green labels saying what the kinds of tea are

    The collection has ten tubes of single-estate teas from around the world. Each one has enough to brew a 6- to-8-cup pot. Plus, it comes with a booklet with information on all the teas plus brewing tips.

    Promising review: "I received this set as a Hanukkah gift from my parents, and so far, it has been a real delight. Each tube comes full of a different type of tea, unique in its characteristics, and not ones that I would normally have picked out for myself. With the help of the guide book, I have prepared several pots of the most delicious tea for myself and my roommates (because as everyone knows, tea is best when shared). Each tube contains enough tea for more than one (small-ish) pot, so I look forward to experiencing each one again. In all, I would heartily recommend this product to anyone looking for a lovely, relaxing, and heartwarming experience or gift." —thesongfactory

    Get the set from UncommonGoods for $55.

    15. A denim sherpa jacket, switching up the classic look of a denim jacket with a cozy lining to keep them stylish *and* warm all through the winter.


    Promising review (women's): "I’ve owned this sherpa for a while now, and the quality never ceases to amaze me. It’s held up so well and is very warm. Goes with EVERY outfit. Everyone should have one." —chlomo

    Get it from Amazon: $79.99 (for men's sizes XS-6X; available in regular, tall, and big styles and in 14 colors), $89.99 (for women's sixes XS-XL; available in eight colors), and $79.99 (for women's sizes 1X-4X) or Levi's for $84.99 (available men's sizes S–3XL and five washes; women's sizes XS–XL, and a similar style in women's sizes 1X-4X).

    16. A box set of illustrated editions of the first three Harry Potter books wizards and muggles alike will be spellbound over for years to come.

    17. A Peter Thomas Roth Made to Mask kit filled with four of their best-selling masks for a luxurious gift for sure to wow any skincare fanatics, or even those who don't know where to start.

    The four masks (green, black, orange, and gold) next to the box

    The kit has four 1.7 oz/50 mL masks:

    -Cucumber Gel Mask — to help soothe, hydrate, and detox the look of dry, irritated skin

    -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask —to help exfoliate, peel, and polish to reveal smoother skin

    -Irish Moor Mud Mask — that purifies and decongests while also hydrating skin

    -24K Gold Mask — that is infused with 24K Gold and Colloidal Gold to help lift and firm skin while also giving it a nice glow

    Promising review: "10/10 would absolutely buy again. This set was a great way to be able to sample some very expensive masks from PTR. I use a mask like once a week, so it's nice to be able to decide how my skin is feeling and pick one of the masks that works for any specific problem that I am dealing with. Also, you get a lot of product and the Pumpkin one smells Amazing!!" —Stepford

    Get the set from Sephora for $58 ($177 value).

    18. A heavyweight fleece graphic hoodie comfy and stylish enough they can wear it all the time, whether they're working out or just hanging out. Plus, it has a super cool hidden zipper pocket, so they can store their keys and phone without worrying about them falling out and possibly getting lost or broken.

    Hill City

    Promising review: "I ordered this sweatshirt in black for a Christmas present for my 19-year-old son. It is his favorite sweatshirt (and that is saying a lot, for a college kid that wears sweatshirts every day!). He loves the softness, the fit, the logo, and the hidden pockets to secure items. He just showed me the off-white, which will be his next purchase! I am very impressed with how it has washed up, too!" —Jillypooh

    Get it from Hill City for $98 (available in men's sizes XS–XXL and nine colors).

    19. A mini beauty refrigerator perfect for the person on your list who takes their skin care seriously with a capital S. Yes, you know who I'm talking about. They're always recommending THE best products and would totally appreciate a way to keep their favorites fresh and ready for use.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I thought this might be a silly addition to my beauty routine until I tried it! I love applying cool drops to my eyes and serum to my face every morning and night. It has plenty of space for six-plus beauty products. Highly recommend." —Abbaygrace

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59.95 (available in five colors) or from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in six colors and patterns).

    20. Long-distance touch bracelets with the power to make you feel closer to any loved one you might not be spending the holiday season with. When you touch the bracelet, the other lights up and vibrates, letting that person know you're thinking of them.


    All you have to do is download the app that connects the bracelets, tap your bracelet to send a message. Their bracelet will vibrate and light up, showing them that you're thinking of them. You can send up to 10 taps per message. The bands are also waterproof, so you both can wear them constantly, even in the shower.

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I aren't in an LDR, but we both suffer from anxiety and let me tell you, these bracelets were practically made for our relationship! I get very busy, I don't really use my phone so I don't text a lot. The bracelets really help in those moments when I don't want to text, or when I really need his hugs and support. It's the closest thing I have to feeling his touch. He's going to Peru soon, so for a while we will be LDR! These bracelets will definitely be a lifesaver when that happens." —KittyKen

    Get a set of two from Amazon or UncommonGoods for $98.

    21. Some floral hoop earrings they can wear during the holiday season and beyond for an extra touch of glam everyone will be obsessing over.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I love these earrings! I originally purchased the crystal to be able to wear with multiple outfits, but I caved and also purchased the multi-color pair as well. These earrings will dress up any outfit! I've paired them with a V-neck and jeans, as well as my LBD, and they look fabulous either way! If you're thinking about purchasing, you definitely should. You won't regret it." —Societygrl33

    Get them from J. Crew for $65 (available in two colors).

    22. A faux shearling coat, because the teddy bear coat trend isn't going anywhere, and who doesn't want to feel like they're wearing a big hug around all the time???

    Reviewer wearing the faux fur jacket with large pockets in light brown

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium, and it’s perfect! It's super cute, I’ll probably buy another’s in a different color LOL." —Brianna

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in women's sizes S-3X and in 33 colors and styles).

    23. A starter pack of Glossier's skincare essentials great for anyone who has been eyeing the cult-favorite beauty site but isn't sure where to start. The kit comes with three of their best-selling skincare products thousands of people already love.

    The three products included in the kit on top of the signature pink bag

    The set includes the Milk Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, and Balm Dotcom skin salve (available in eight scents).

    Promising review: "OMG — this set is a lifesaver. Gel cleanser makes skin feel soft and supple, moisturizer is a perfect consistency (not too greasy or thick), and the lip balm is probably the best I’ve used!!! I have combo skin, leaning toward oily, and this stuff makes my skin look and feel amazing. Love it!" —Kels

    Get the set from Glossier for $40 ($52 value).

    24. A mini sherpa backpack that's actually convertible, which means they can change it to a regular shoulder bag or even as a cross-body depending on their mood that day.

    The small beige oval-shaped backpack with a front zippered pocket, top handle, and two straps with clips on them

    Get it from Puma for $40 (available in black and beige).

    25. A cat tower because your furry friend deserves something for being good (okay, mostly good) this year and you deserve a cat toy that won't be an eyesore in your home. Plus, it folds up, for easy storage when not in use.

    The cross-style cat toy with a hammock on top, hole in the front with an enclosed center, two balls handing from one side, and a scratching area on the side

    Promising review: "This was a Christmas gift for our cat. He really had no cat tree because they’re ugly; just a cube with a scratcher and two play balls. I saw that he used the scratch pad (yay) made of jute or sisal. Hopefully, that will keep him from scratching the new couches. Also, it is a tall stand, so he spends a lot of time on it. I am just very happy he is using it. The light gray color goes well with our decor. Best of all, it folds up. Space saver." —NicoyitaMSN

    Get it from Amazon for $37.42.

    26. A Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when they wake up without sleep lines or bedhead.

    Model hugging a pillow with the silk pillowcase on it in black

    The pillowcase is made from 100% silk, which is less absorbent than other fibers. This means that all those products you put on your skin and in your hair stay where they belong. Plus, silk reduces friction, causing less pulling on both your hair and skin — leaving both looking and feeling better when you wake up in the morning.

    Promising review: "This is an investment, and it is so worth it. I have curly frizzy hair, and this has been a lifesaver. I actually wake up with my hair looking okay rather than a crazed clown. The pillowcase is soft and no doubt good for my skin. You do have to hand wash it, which isn't too difficult and it dries super quick too." —Peanut13

    Get it from Nordstrom for $89+ (available in queen and king sizes and in nine colors).

    27. A personalized recipe cutting board so you can preserve that "secret" family recipe and share it with the rest of your family to enjoy for years to come.

    A model holding the cutting board, which is about the size of a piece of paper with the recipe engraved in cursive
    Morning Jo Co / Etsy

    The cutting boards are handmade out of 100% wood and come with a genuine leather cord tied around the handle. Morning Jo Co is a small Black-owned business founded by a husband and wife team making custom laser-cut and engraved home decor.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the recipe cutting board! I purchased this as a gift for my brother with one of our grandma's recipes. Morning Joy Co had GREAT customer service and kept me updated during the process. I would strongly recommend them!" —ashleyloudermilk2

    Get it from Morning Jo Co on Etsy for $69+ (available in two styles and either one-sided or double-sided).

    28. A pair of faux fur slippers actually lined with microfleece fabric (that absorbs any moisture *cough, cough* sweat) to keep their feet at a consistent cozy temperature all day long. Plus, with the multi-layer memory-foam footbed, they'll feel like they're walking on little soft clouds.

    Model wearing the slippers with brown bottoms and white fuzzy shearling fabric on the top and sides
    Acorn Footwear / Via

    Promising review: "Like most of us, I’ve had many different types of slippers, almost all of which I liked. But I no longer want my feet in 'sweat boxes' that I constantly have to kick off to cool my feet down. I want a comfy, casual, cool-looking slipper that not only keeps my feet warm, but are comfortable to wear around the house with a decent support. And this pair of Acorns fits that bill and then some. I can go to the mail box, walk around the yard, vacuum the floors, and never do my feet overheat. They’re soft yet sturdy, and have a similar look to deck shoes. They’re very comfortable. Looks like I’m going to want another pair soon, they’re so pretty I just love them." —MonaD

    Get them from Amazon for $31.34+ (available in women's sizes 5–12 and 26 colors and patterns).

    29. A Waterpik water flosser, which may seem like a lame gift to some, but most will really appreciate a practical gift that will for sure impress their dentist during their next cleaning.

    The pik with a cord wrapped up and sitting in its base with a container to fill with water

    It uses water to remove 99.9 percent of plaque and is 50 percent more effective than flossing for your gums. It features 10 pressure settings and a timer to keep track of flossing time.

    Promising review: "I love this product. It makes your mouth feel so clean. After using it for several weeks, I noticed several things: no more bad breath, no more bad taste in my mouth, my gums are much healthier, no more bleeding, and my teeth are less sensitive at the gum line. This is, by far, one of the best buys I've made this year. This Waterpik has two settings and variable pressure, which is great. The pressure setting goes from very light to heavy pressure on a scale of 1–10. Start out on mild setting and work up to a level of comfort. It has a gum massage setting that is wonderful for sore gums or for a person who grinds their teeth. It's very soothing. There are a variety of tips, such as for plaque or deep pockets, which are worth looking at and buying if they fit your needs. I highly recommend for folks with a lot of crowns, receding gum lines, pockets, or if you are not great at flossing due to bleeding or teeth so close that it's difficult to floss. It is a good size so storing it is a problem in my very small bathroom, but I don't care. Other issues — well, there is a learning curve in using it. Everyone I have talked to, who has one, has asked me if I have shot water across the bathroom and the answer is yes. My cat flees the bathroom as soon as I turn on the Waterpik now. So use only warm water until you get the hang of it. I wholeheartedly recommend this product. I like it so much that I'm buying the portable one for travel, and it's on my Christmas list for family and friends." —JS

    Get it from Amazon for $84.06 (available in two styles and seven colors).

    30. A Rent the Runway gift card because giving the gift of designer fashion at a killer discount is really something you can really never go wrong with.

    Rent The Runway

    This way, the recipient can decide when and how to use their card. Not only is Rent the Runway great for renting dresses for big events like weddings, but it also offers an unlimited program where for a monthly fee, you can rent clothes and accessories to wear in your everyday life. The RTR Update program allows rental of four pieces a month while the RTR Unlimited program allows rentals of unlimited pieces on rotation. They'll feel and look super stylish and thank you endlessly for the gift.

    Get it from Rent The Runway for $50+ (you can also choose $89, which is the cost of one month in the four-item plan).

    31. An acrylic Squatty Potty anyone ~clearly~ needs because it not only works just as well as the regular version, but it also will actually be a beautiful addition to whatever bathroom it's in.

    The clear step stool with a rounded side against a toilet

    Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of 'squat pot' without the eyesore of the white 7-inch one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one. I find it's shaped SLIGHTLY different than my white 7-inch one, and I like that. I also find no squeaking noise as I pull or push it from the basin of the toilet, unlike my white one. My guests didn't notice it was there until I pointed it out. Go with the ghost acrylic, you won't regret it!" —Durga D

    It weighs about the same as a can of soup yet will charge the iPhone 8 almost seven times, the Galaxy S8 five times, or the iPad mini 4 twice.

    Promising review: "I've had the PowerCore 20100 for a couple of months now, and I love it! It is a wonderful, portable charger that even inspired my wife to pick up an Anker charger. I've charged both my wife's and my iPhone X simultaneously, was able to get a pretty good charge on an iPad Pro, charged my Apple Watch, and even my Bose QuietComfort headphones (obviously, not all at the same time, there are only two ports). The two ports are very convenient, especially when I have to carry my personal cell phone as well as a cell phone for work." —Joshua N Nichols

This is just what you want in a bag! It's a roomy tote with a top zipper to keep things private (something I needed), and it looks so much more expensive than it is." —Amazon Customer

    Plus, it's dishwasher-safe on the top rack.

    Promising review: "This aerator works well, does not take up too much space, is not fragile, and is easy to clean. The screen filters out sediment or that occasional piece of cork. It's also very good for an inexpensive weeknight bottle of red. We think it makes a $10 bottle of wine taste like a $15 bottle and so on..." —SuSu2

    Promising review: "The product is exactly what it said it would be, the price is excellent (especially since you get two), they arrived properly packaged (in a tube), and it was delivered within a few days of ordering. These are Christmas presents for my kids, and I am 100% pleased. I, of course, messed up only four names in, so good thing I had an extra. This means I can use the messed up one as a tester for colors and different pens to see exactly what I want. I have experienced no bleeding of ink at all! Anyway, if this is something you are interested in, I highly recommend it!" —Mel Kass

    44. A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club so they get new fresh coffee delivered to their door every couple of weeks, meaning they'll feel the holiday love for months.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, atlascoffeeclub / Via

    My BuzzFeed Shopping colleague Kayla Suazo said:

    "My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it's heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality."

    Promising review: "I have a $120 faux-fur throw, and this one is so much better! I was concerned the lining would be rough, but it is super soft. It is luxurious (better than the picture) and so soft and cuddly. It is super thick but not heavy. I accidentally ordered two and am keeping both. Love this product." —K Shopper

    Caitlyn Minimalist is a woman-owned business that has been crafting dainty personalized jewelry since 2014.

    Promising review: "These are my first set of alcohol-based markers, the chisel tip actually offers me more control than a brush tip does; the fine tip is great for details, smaller areas, and blending. If you're looking for a good starter set to get your feet wet with alcohol markers, these are a fantastic buy. The colors are wonderful, you can build intensity with them or use a lighter hand for a more muted look. All in all, totally worth the money!" —Nala

    51. A pair of pair of wireless earbuds to ~cancel~ the noise around you so you're actually able to hear the awesome podcast you're currently obsessed with, instead of the neighbor's dog barking. These true wireless earbuds have soft silicone ear tips, so they won't fall out of their ears in the middle of a song (or even a phone call). We love a gift that's both sleek and practical.


    Not only does the design of the earbuds help balance bass for a natural and authentic sound, but the charging case and earbuds have a combined 24-hour battery life. The earbuds work for 6.5 hours on a single charge. You can even select a quick charge function where you get three hours of use in only 15 minutes. The earbuds also come with three additional pairs of ear tips in different sizes.

    Promising review: "I am in the Esports industry, so I've tried my fair share of headphones and earbuds — and these are not only comfy, but they are also some of the best quality earbuds (let alone the fact that they are wireless) that I've ever worn/used.

    The battery life is insane and on top of that, the charging case gives me a full-day security of being able to listen nonstop to music/phone calls without having to worry that they'll die. I've tested the 15-minute fast charge and it works incredible. I am beyond impressed.

    The music quality is top-notch and the volume is so impressive that I couldn't even get it to full volume. I also love that I can use them ONE earbud at a time. This means I can have more comfortable listening options and more accessible phone calls.

    Already planning on buying these for Christmas gifts, I would recommend to everyone." —Don Goode

    Get them from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in three colors).

    52. A wine chiller made with stainless steel to keep the bottle perfectly chilled without having to remember to put it in the freezer before use.

    Promising review: "I ginally bought one for myself, and I love it! Even in the Arizona heat, it keeps the wine cold outdoors. It’s a great alternative to having to use a bucket or got back to the fridge/freezer. It's a great gift for a wine lover, and Vinglace boxing is very classy." — Stagg

    -beard shampoo

    -beard balm

    -grooming oil

    -boar-bristle beard brush

    -hand towel

    Promising review: "I bought the mini create for hubby as a gift. He was so curious since the packaging was interesting enough that I didn't have to wrap it. I tied a bow around it and stuck it under the tree. After he used the crowbar to open the wooden box (which he thoroughly enjoyed in itself, and was worth every $ watching him do so) 😂 He immediately started using it every day. He stores it right in the box it shipped in and comments about how much he loves the product. He spends more time in the bathroom than I do now, and he's already asking how to get the refills! He had a lot of trouble training his beard to grow one direction and this stuff just works, no other words for it — it just works and works well!" —Candice

    Get it from Man Crates for $59.99.

    54. A three-speed portable suitcase record player they'll have ~a-round~ for years because it's a modern take on the classic music player with Bluetooth capabilities and built-in speakers. Listening to music will never be the same for them again.

    The rectangle record player with a black handle on the top and the lid open, showing what the actual player looks like inside

    Promising review: "I got this for my dad for Christmas. He LOVES it. He kept saying he couldn’t believe I found one (a record player) because he’d been seeing vinyls popping up in stores everywhere but couldn’t find a player. It’s easy for him to fold up and put away when the grandkids come over. He also liked that he can hook it up to his phone and listen to Pandora. AND it’s loud enough that he can play it in his bedroom and hear it in the kitchen." —Pennie Sims

    Get it from Amazon for $58.99 (available in 32 colors and patterns).

    55. A marble chess set so minimalist and chic, it will be a great gift, even if the recipient hasn't quite mastered the game...yet.

    Promising review: "This is truly a beautiful cutting board. I purchased it as a gift for a friend who hosts often, and I'm sure she's going to love it. It's a solid, heavy piece; just what you want from a good cutting board. I will definitely purchase again." —Mom of three

    58. A cotton jersey pajama set because a gift that's both comfortable and cute is always a winning gift.


    Promising review: "Not only do these pajamas hold their shape quite well, but they also wash well, are comfortable, and the button holes do not stretch out. The fabric is the perfect weight for year-round comfort if one is more cold-natured as I am. The color is exactly as depicted in the photo. If you like your pajamas on the loose side, I would buy them in the size you think you need. If you like them to fit more true to size, I would buy a size down from your normal size." —dawn jordan

    Get the set from Amazon for $47.99 (available in women's sizes XS–3X, petite and tall and in 17 colors and patterns).

    Three pics of the art: one line drawing of a dog, one color-block of a dog, and a line drawing of a cat, all with the actual animals they look like below them

    I fell in love with these posters last year and actually just got one the other day. It arrived SO fast after I placed the order, like in days. And the style is so simple yet chic. I customized the breed, design, and color, but you can also change the orientation and add text (it's super easy to do after you click on the link. They have all the options there to pick from). I did it based on my English Lab who sadly passed in the spring. This is going to be a nice reminder that she's always going to be part of the family.
