Promising review: "I got this jacket not expecting myself to wear it so often because it was very colorful. However, it is my absolute favorite thing to wear when it’s chilly.

Promising review: "These work great and easy to use. I love that they aren’t bulky like the previous ones I had. A lot of ankle weights slide and would hit my ankle bone, but I can wear these ones while barefoot for barre and position them high enough and they stay out without me having to constantly adjust them. They were a bit on the pricier end, but it was worth it.." —NCgirl9

Rachel Dube / BuzzFeed,

There's also a countdown clock that will alert you when your toast is almost ready! I actually got to try this toaster and shared it with my parents who were in desperate need for a new toaster. Every time I'm at their house, I end up using it because it's so great. The touchscreen is super easy to use. You select what color brown you want you toast, and in no time, it's ready to go. I love how their are so many different options because all breads do not toast equally!!

BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dube also owns this gadget and says: "What's not to *love* about a functional appliance? It's meant to perfectly heat each individual item, thanks to the fact that it adjusts to their shape. When I used to use my old toaster, I would have to play around with the temperature *and* keep an eye on it the entire time. This lets me just walk away and will pop out the food when it's done the way I selected on the screen." Read her full review of the Revolution Cooking Smart-Toaster here.

Promising review: "Of course, TikTok made me buy it! LOL! But seriously, it looks great in my newly remodeled kitchen and really cooks/toasts/warms up my breads, waffles, and bagels perfectly and evenly! I've had some really cheap toasters in my time and have always been disappointed with the uneven toasting because one of the elements within the toaster burnt out, etc. This toaster is super smart, and you can clearly see when your food is about to be done. There's three settings (warm, fresh, frozen) options for toasting so you're food is always cooked to perfection! The animated circle around on display when cooking lets you know know how far along your food is to being done. An audible sound plays when it's done so you don't have to keep watching it. When you're not using the toaster, the time displays. Where I have it in my kitchen, it's nice to have the time on that side of the room without having to turn around and look at my oven. The aesthetics are very nice and complimentary since all my appliances are stainless steel. It gives my kitchen this extra zhoosh up the place! I've been using it now for several months and have no complaints!" —ADR

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $349.

13. A Dagne Dover duffel 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 travel without it again.

14. A Bearaby knitted velvet weighted blanket constructed from upcycled eco-velvet, so it's a more sustainable way to help the recipient feel less anxious and get deeper sleep. Plus, it will look so beautiful on their bed or couch when not in use.

15. A pasta-shaped necklace sure to illicit an "OH MY GOD" when the recipient opens the gift and sees their favorite noodle immortalized forever. It'll be the perfect gift they'll wear for years and don't even have to know you spent a pretty ~penne~ on it.

16. A Shark air purifier actually designed with a Clean Sense IQ that auto-adjusts the power to keep the air clean and pure, so if they accidentally burn dinner, it will work more to clear the air of smoke as soon as possible. Plus, it works in rooms up to 1,200 square feet, has six high-speed fans, and is super quiet.

19. A Cuisinart compact bread maker great for anyone who's been perfecting their sourdough recipe. With this sleek machine, they'll be able to easily make bread by just selecting what kind they want to make, putting the dough in, and walking away.

20. An adjustable standing desk for the person on your list who has fully embraced the WFH life. This baby is well worth it. Not only can they customize the height (and move it up and down during the day as they please), but it can hold up to 275 pounds, is water and scratch-resistant, and has an included cable tray to keep your desk free and clear of cords.

22. A Courant catchall with a built-in charger to streamline the look of a side table and give them a place to hold trinkets *and* charge their phone at the same time.

23. A Lululemon scuba half-zip hoodie made with a naturally breathable cotton-blend fleece fabric to keep them warm without overheating. If this TikTok-fave sweatshirt has been on their wishlist for awhile now, scoop up their fave color ASAP before it sells out...again.

Promising review: "TikTok wasn't joking when they were hyping this up. I've wanted a scuba for years, and a cropped version PLUS a half zip was too good to pass up. I am so excited to wear this! It's so soft, cute, and baggy, which I am a fan of. I love me a comfy hoodie in the cold winter months. So excited to put this to use!" —macefaceee

Shipping info: Shipping is free on all orders and takes two to six business days. Expedited 2–3-day shipping options are available at additional cost.

Get it from Lululemon for $118 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in nine colors). 

24. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug that'll keep their coffee (or tea) warm for hours so they don't take a sip of a cold beverage when they get distracted and forget about the cup they made. It's the little things in life that make it more luxurious.

25. A Madewell large leather transport tote perfect for everyday use because the simple style holds a lot while still looking professional.

26. Bartesian cocktail machine ideal for anyone who loves a good craft cocktail but doesn't want to have all the ingredients at all times for them. This machine will make their favorite cocktail — from a whiskey sour to a cosmopolitan — in seconds with only a push of a button. Happy hour at home just became happier hour.

After you fill up the machine with alcohol (which is not included), all you have to do is insert a cocktail capsule, choose your preferred strength, and press mix. Plus, it automatically cleans itself after each cocktail and has dishwasher-safe parts for easy care.

Promising reviews: "My entire family and I are extremely satisfied with the Bartesian cocktail machine. I bought this late November but could not provide a review as this was a family Christmas gift. When it was finally unwrapped and opened up, everyone was surprised, excited, and wanted a drink. With six adults in the family, we all had our favorite. I bought six different cocktail mixes (cosmopolitan, whisky sour, sex on the beach, rum breeze, uptown rocks, and Long Island iced tea). We tried them all, and every cocktail turned out fantastic!! I would recommend this machine to anyone who enjoys quality cocktails." —Doug

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

28. A Coravin wine preservation system designed to make any wine lover say, "sip, sip, hooray" because, with this device, they'll be able to drink their favorite wine without feeling obligated to finish the bottle in one sitting.

29. A magic link leash any pet parent would love because it's made to fit their lifestyle. It can be worn as belt, crossbody, or around the wrist, meaning they'll have a hands-free way to keep their dog safe. Plus, they can slip it on their dog as a collar or attach it to a separate harness.

30. A 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.

31. The Cozee, a battery-powered heated blanket they can take with them anywhere from camping to soccer games (game changer) to stay toasty warm — no cords required.
