    55 Gifts You Basically Can’t Go Wrong With

    Truly great gifts for everyone on your list, no matter your budget.

    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. A Kindle Paperwhite that's thin, glare-free, and – did I mention? – WATERPROOF. Plus, it has a ton of storage so they can schlep around that 1,000-page book without breaking their back.

    2. A pair of Greats sneakers anyone would appreciate because we're at a point in our lives in which we need to realize that investing in comfortable shoes is basically as important for your body as sleeping. When our feet are happy, we're happy.

    3. A set of wooly crew socks because one can never, and I mean NEVER, have enough warm socks.

    Five pairs of knit socks in a variety of colors folded and set on a table

    4. A personalized tote bag (with a beautiful print designed by an independent artist) anyone will love to carry around and show off.

    Model with the black tote bag with white, pink, and green floral pattern all of it with a small rectangle name tag in the top middle

    5. A Sony portable Bluetooth speaker designed to be small and waterproof so they can take it anywhere and bring great music right along with them.

    6. A 500-piece puzzle illustrated by Amsterdam-based artist B.D. Graft with an adorable print of dogs and plants that'll be a ~dog-gone~ good gift to give your friend who has basically mastered the art of puzzles over the last six months.

    7. A HyperChiller that can chill freshly brewed coffee – or other liquids, such as wine (!!) – in a minute without watering it down.

    The black cylinder HyperChiller with a circular hole in the top with a carafe of coffee being poured into it

    8. A set of cocktail-inspired soaps anyone will be ~intoxicated~ with because they look cool, smell even better, *and* are practical to use.

    The four soap bars in different colors, two have cardboard packaging on them with labels of Limoncello and Elderflower Mimosa

    9. A pair of plush slippers to ~slide~ on a bit of warmth without worrying about overheating and having sweaty feet (because that's one of the worst feelings ever).

    Reviewer pic of their feet in the air with the fuzzy slippers on with a criss-cross over the top of the foot and an open-toe style in light pink

    10. A Homesick state candle as a nice reminder of their home state when they're missing where they came from. (Especially if they can't go home for the holidays this year. This may be a tear-worthy gift. I'm just saying...)

    The candle in a clear jar with a white label that says Texas on it with an illustration of the state

    11. An Allbirds wool sweater made with the same sustainable wool of the fan-favorite shoes but with a thicker gauge and heavier weight to prevent any stretching during wear. Plus, the simple yet classic style means you can get it for basically anyone on your list.

    12. A large slate cheese board to help them show off their meat, cheese, and crudité arrangement skills, even if it's just for their friends and followers on Instagram.

    Reviewer pic of the black slate rectangle-shaped board  with a variety of cheese, crackers, and nuts on it with silver tools suck into the cheese

    13. A chunky-knit blanket knitting kit filled with everything they need to make their own blanket at home. And don't fret if they're not an A+ knitter yet, this beginner style (plus videos online) will help them jump right in and learn a new skill at the same time.

    Modl with a large chunky knit blanket in light pink over their lap

    14. A box full of British chocolate bars because it's a fact that chocolate makes a great gift for practically anyone *and* British chocolate is wayyyyyy better than the American version.

    Reviewer pic of the box and the assorted nine candy bars included

    15. A Quip electric toothbrush so chic they won't even realize how practical a gift it really is — until they start using it every single day.

    Four toothbrushes with white on top and rose gold, black, gold, and silver bottoms in their cases and a cup

    16. A basic letter board the recipient can personalize with a new message weekly or daily to get the inspiration they need.

    17. A Patagonia insulated hooded jacket made to be lightweight yet warm so they stay comfortable no matter what the temperature is during their adventure (even if that adventure is just a trip to the grocery store).

    18. An Always pan designed to replace eight pieces of cookware, and look good while doing it. This means they can have a decluttered cabinet and yet still make all the different kinds of food they want.

    19. An AeroGarden so anyone can grow their own herbs (and even veggies) at home, no matter if they live in an apartment without any outdoor space.

    Reviewer pic of the black Aerogarden on a counter with lettuce leaves growing in it and their hand on one of the leaves, showing how big it's growing

    23. A Nespresso Vertuo, which will mean a ~latte~ to any coffee lover because they'll be able to make a delicious cup of coffee or espresso in their own home every morning. Just think, while they're taking their first sip, they'll be thinking of you and how great of a gift-giver you really are.

    Reviewer pic of the machine, plus the aeroccino milk frother next to it and a drawer of pods under it

    24. A pre-made felt flower bouquet because flowers are always a great gift, but they're an even better gift when they don't die after only one short week.

    25. A NutriBullet to help them ~whip~ up smoothies (and soups and more!) in a matter of seconds.

    28. A microwave popper that'll basically revolutionize the way they make popcorn. They'll get delicious, homemade popcorn with fresh butter in a matter of minutes and won't have to keep buying the microwave bags over and over again. Movie night has never tasted so good.

    The red bowl with a clear top with popped popcorn in it and a model's hands pulling it out of a microwave.

    29. An acacia wood spoon rest *almost* too beautiful to use. And if they don't want to use it, they can simply keep it out on their counter to add a touch of glam.

    The wood spoon rest, which is round a wider on one side and smaller on the other,  and black and white resin in the inside

    30. A couch caddy that securely holds coffee cups, wine glasses, and more right next to you on a couch, chair, or in bed so they can truly relax without worrying about spilling.

    The oval-shaped couch caddy in brown with two cup holders and a smaller holder in the center attached to the side of a couch with a model lying and reading above it

    31. A fleece crewneck sweatshirt perfect for lounging around the house but nice enough that if they need to venture out (or even jump on a video call) they totally can.

    32. And an electric bottle opener useful for helping them open a wine bottle in three seconds. Yes, that's right. No more struggling to get their wine bottle open. With this gift, they will have entered the good life.

    33. And a waterproof bathtub caddy tray for the person in your life who takes "me" time to a new level. They may never leave the bathroom now because they'll be able to keep all their essentials (i.e. a candle, tea, phone, etc.) close to them without fear of anything getting wet.

    A wood tray over a bathtub with a tablet holder, wine glass slot, and two removable trays for other accessories.

    The oval-shaped diffuser with steam coming out of the top in dark grey

    38. A hanging photo display to create a personalized photo collage, so they can display their favorite photos and mementos. Just think, with this gift, you'll be the reason they smile at least once a day when they pass it.

    Two wood sticks with five wires strung between them with small clothespins holding a selection of pictures on each one

    39. A basic leather tote they'll be using for years because it's the perfect bag to fit everything they need for a day while still looking oh-so chic.

    41. A Furbo dog camera for the dog lover who hates to be away from their best friend. This high-tech camera can help ease anxiety (both theirs and their dog's) when they leave them home alone. With livestream video, two-way audio, *and* treat-dispensing, they can make sure their pup is behaving while they're away, or just reward them for being oh-so-cute.

    42. A set of colored stemless wineglasses they'll feel absolutely *regal* drinking out of for years to come.

    A set of six stemless wine glasses in a dark purple color

    43. A heated massager they can use to relieve the tension they get from just being out in the world. Those tense shoulders aren't going to fix themselves.

    46. Or a Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when they wake up with their beautiful curls still in tact and frizz-free. (Not to mention their skin looking great too!)

    47. A deluxe foot spa that's heated *and* has a bubble massager for a spa treat they can use every week (or every day TBH).

    The square-shaped foot bath with rounded edges and water in it with two feet in it

    48. A wine aerator made to speed up the breathing process of red wine, giving it a smoother and fuller flavor. Everyone will be shocked when they taste the difference in their wine. So you're basically giving the gift of luxury, and how cool is that?

    49. A custom star map that shows what the sky looked like at an exact location (and time) so you can commemorate the moment you met your partner, a wedding anniversary, someone's birthday, or even just a special moment in time.

    Rectangle print with a circle full of stars and the words "Under This Sky It All Began" plus the names Michelle & Aaron, as well as a date and coordinates

    50. A storm cloud designed to change patterns as the air pressure changes, so they know just after they open their eyes what they're about to head out into, whether it's clear, cloudy, or even snowy.

    The clear cloud-shaped device with wood base

    51. A pair of Beats Powerbeats headphones perfect for helping them tune out any noise around them so they can focus on work or even their workout.

    52. A wet shave kit that'll make them look super ~sharp~ and also feel super fancy. Don't be surprised if they start walking around with their pinky in the air after using this.

    53. A throw blanket with pockets at the end, so they can stick their feet in and keep them toasty and warm while they dive into a new show on Netflix.

    Model with the beige blanket wrapped around them and their feet in the deep pockets at the bottom

    54. A Little Tikes kitchen set by BuzzFeed's Tasty complete with an oven, fridge, stove top, 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).

    55. And a splurge-worthy Airwrap complete styler that'll make you the best gift giver *ever* because this will give them the gift of never having a bad hair day again.

    The silver base with a small oval-shaped hair dryer attached and all the interchangeable heads sitting around it in grey with pink accents
